The Time is Now


There is a time and a place for everything under Heaven; and knowing when and understanding what  that time and place happens to be (as determined by the Lord), is a challenge.

Life is complicated.  Happiness and love emotional.  Trials and tribulations difficult. It is a wonder that we can function at all, let alone know what and when to follow the Lord's commands.

What to do and how to deal become even more confusing when confronted with unholy acts of sin, hatred and violence; the intent to harm.

It is confusing, because these actions are contrary to the Lord's commandments of love and peace; and it is difficult to know how to defend against sin, hatred, violence and harm.

I do know that we must try.

The time is now to stop sexual abuse in the church.
The time is now to hold sexual predators accountable.
The time is now to end these sinful practices.
The time is now to demand the church to get back to leading the way to salvation; and be the light guiding the leaders of the world (in ethics and morality).     

Apparently, I forgot to mention purpose.

What is the purpose of church and ministry?

  "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see the Lord."                                - Matthew 5:8  Without a pure heart...
