You blog or comment on politics? Then please read “the observation of love by a wee flea.” It is a timely reminder that we need to separate what we hate from those whom we should love.
Because I can get angry, there are times my words are filled with sarcasm. There are times I make a point of adamantly condemning Socialism as both wrong and unworkable. Nevertheless, because I believe in the teachings of Jesus, I try not to condemn people who believe in the supposed wonders of Socialism.
Jesus could point to a man and say hypocrite; I can rightly only point to a man’s conduct and say hypocritical. I can rightly only hope that on this day at least I won’t make a hypocrite of myself.

with particular satisfaction.
Indeed, I can say with complete truthfulness that everything I have learned in my seventy-five
years in this world,
everything that has truly enhanced and enlightened my existence,
has been through affliction and not through happiness, whether pursued or attained…
This, of course, is what the Cross signifies.
And it is the Cross, more than anything else, that has called me inexorably to Christ.”
Yesterday I found myself reading over the latest blog offering by the Scottish Pastor
who once again, expresses so much more eloquently what I feel…
