   I'm going to drop off pasting this booklet at this point as much of it's content will appear dry and will not edify or draw those not having made a real decision pertaining to GOD.  Instead I will post from a devotional by T. Austin Sparks which will give a more thought provoking presentation to both belief, and unbelief.  Here's the first:

 

   Christ?s love compels us. (2 Corinthians 5:14 NIV) “The love of God shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit” (Rom. 5:5).

   That was the dynamic of service. Now, that is simple and it works in two ways. All activity, work, and what is called “service” for the Lord, without that behind it, is lacking in the true power of fruitful service, but if that is there, we cannot help being the Lord?s servants. Nothing can make us true servants of the Lord but a personal passionate love for Himself. Nothing can substitute that. But given that, there is no need for any kind of human ordination, or an ecclesiastical setting apart. You are the Lord?s servant right enough if you have an adequate love for Himself in your heart. It will be, it will work out. All our value to the Lord depends upon the measure of our heart-love for Himself. That is all. There is nothing profound about that, but it is testing. We may do many things, like the church at Ephesus later on. It did many things, but the Lord said, “I have this against thee, that thou hast left thy first love” (Rev. 2:4). And in effect He said: “There is no justification in your lampstand remaining, it is merely an empty profession, an outward vessel without the inner Lord, the inner light.” And unless this original first love is recovered, it is mere profession, doing many things, but the thing which justifies our existence is that love and only that. Nothing but that love will keep us going. It is the power of endurance through the years, and it is an awful thing to come to a Christian life which has got to be kept up without that love for the Lord in the heart. It is only that love that really makes the Christian life possible under all the strain of the years. I am quite sure that in the case of the apostle, with all his suffering and all he had to meet, the thing that kept him going was that flame of love in his own heart for the Lord Himself. Through the suffering, nothing but a strong love for the Lord will keep us going.

That's always a danger.

   Wouldn't it be wonderful if we supported the humanity and rights of those outside our personal reality = white folks living as though BLM, and black folks living as though WLM etc. I'd be bold enough to say that will never really happen apart from Jesus Christ being the reality of men.  All we have apart from the King are vain, shallow attempts.

Paul, the BLM movement is not saying that white lives (or Asian, or Latino) don't matter.

They are saying that all lives matter, but that has to include black people.

   What they say and do is promote hatred and division.  We agree that BLM, but the organization and its activities are perverted, corrupt, and evil.

Yes, it would.

#Paz
Gobernación del Cauca- Mi Cauca

 
Este videoclip contribuye en la consolidación de un concepto de Caucanidad, que promueve el sentido de pertenencia, el amor y la identidad por nuestro departamento. Entendiendo que en medio de la diversidad, todos somos Caucanos y que se hace necesaria la integración, la solidaridad y la convivencia para seguir afrontando los retos del presente en la búsqueda de la ?#Paz y la reconciliación.

Doty Whitaker:  go into BLM gatherings and demand they say her name.   It's not some speech, or orchestrated production; it's the content and spirit of their actions.  Maybe if they ascribed the same hope, dignity, mercy, and forgiveness for others that they unilaterally demand for themselves; we could start with unified effective reform in all our issues.  Much of what you currently see is under the spirit of the American Muslim sect headed by  louis farrakhan which is the black KKK.  They are also used and motivated by Marxist leaders in the effectual dismantling of this nation.  Again, BLM is true for sure, and there are issues which need to be addressed for sure((on all sides)), but the the BLM organization will only magnify the problems and bring to prominence those justifying themselves at the expense of others.  Doty Whitaker, say her name.

You might want to take a step back and calm down a bit.

Elijah McClain believed that when he played his violin for kittens at the local animal shelter, it helped the kittens to relax and feel less lonely. 

Some folks believe that it works for humans as well.

We Shall Overcome, because Black Lives Matter.
