Con­fin­ing re­li­gion un­work­able op­tion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Darryl Blake's "Keep re­li­gion in churches" the Guardian July 9, 2015 is quite lu­di­crous. How can you keep God in churches and homes only, when He is ev­ery­where and sus­tains all life? We do not force our Godly be­liefs on oth­ers, but tell peo­ple what is right in the sight of God from his writ­ten word. You can be sick to your stom­ach over Bi­ble quotes but it does not change the truth. Yes you can be­lieve what you want!

The fol­low­ing are para­phrase and di­rect quotes from the Bi­ble to make you even sicker or maybe wiser? The fool has said in is heart "there is no God." The fear of God is the be­gin­ning of wis­dom and a good un­der­stand­ing is keep­ing his com­mand­ments. Matthew chap­ter 10 verse 28. " And do not fear those who kill the body but can­not kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to de­stroy both soul and body in hell." Psalm chap­ter 10 verse 4 "The wicked in his proud coun­te­nance does not seek God: God is in none of his thoughts." Matthew chap­ter 13 verses 49&50 "So it will be at the end of the age. The An­gels will come forth, sep­a­rate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the fur­nace of fire. There will be wail­ing and gnash­ing of teeth."

God's wis­dom is moral. It dis­cerns be­tween good and evil. It is seen through pru­dence in sec­u­lar af­fairs and comes through per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence with the Lord. R.A. Jenk­ins, Char­lot­te­town
