We serve the good Teacher. Amen. Greetings to all. I once heard that the best place to hide something is right in plain view. As I open my eyes, it can't be any more clear: The lie is more evident, in society, than the truth. God has brought us together this day, that this message may encourage and be a beginning of what will become the best glory to God that I may produce in my time. That it be God's will, not mine, and that you will find it in you to forgive me- should I transgress you. That you may correct by His Words, and that we may walk for His Glory, Amen. Inner correction shall continue, (Matthew 7:3) but as I step about and look for my brothers and sisters, many are but blindfolded. Lost. Or even worse, proud. Have they felt fear of God, the beginning of wisdom? (Psalm 111:10) Is correction from one another, by the Word of God, being replaced by coexist stickers? A fictoral book, far from the teachings of Christ, has become the icon of Christian communities on the web. It is ignorance. It is a lie. It is in our face and many do not even see it. As this day began, in another website, in a place titled "Christian Community", I was struck by the icon of a grave looking shack. Really? The icon for Christian Community... is this? Said to be "the book next to the bible", I researched it and wondered who has not seen these red flags? Who has not heard the whistle being blown? Praise God that the Truth is mightier than the pen! As the day continued, at a bargain bookstore, in the section titled "Religion", there were showcased books on atheism and the like. Big. Brightly colored. Bold-lettered. I touched them. I flipped through them, and saw sentence structure. I felt their weight. They were real. And they were right in front of my wife, my daughter, and my son. These would feed the imaginations of men (Isaiah 65:2) and the fruit of it shall scatter across the future of many. This was what was out there. This is what God warned us about. And a man looked at a book on aliens. Yes, same section. And a woman looked at New Age books with strange symbols. Yes, same section. And to say anything, had only brought about sarcasm. (2 Peter 3:3) And the day finished with a movie picked at a garage sale. Rated G. From the Classification and Film Rating Administration: Rated G:"The motion picture contains nothing that would offend parents for viewing by their children." It is sufficient to say, Heaven and "bum" should not be in the same context of a G-rated movie. It offended me. A worldly rating, upon a worldly movie, I concluded. Let us go in faith.

Thank you for the encouragement. :) Even to read your testimony, sparked memories of God moving in my life. I recall someone that I did not know, at a church I had not frequented, telling me that God knew how alone I had been feeling and that He wanted me to know He had been there all along... The tears came pooring down. Even now as I think about it, I get teary. Thank you for the reminder. May God be hearing your call.
