Reader Opinion: This is our home

"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things." Phil. 4:8&9

It's been awhile. Sure been a cold winter. Welcome to Minnesota, Super Bowl fans! Maybe next winter we can get more snow, I love snow!

I was taken to task on my letter on illegals and immorals. I was hoping most people would realize I was writing of two different topic.and not linking DACA as immorals. But...

As for immigration, Jesus gave wise counsel about living in this world, "... be wise as serpents and harmless as doves." This thorny issue will never be settled to everyone's satisfaction. God bless those caught in between! Just a final word America is our home, and like anyone, we don't just want anyone walking into our home, do we? OK.

I'm reading an excellent book by the late Chuck Colson, "Being The Body," about the church Universal (world). One chapter he explains how immorality is almost promoted by some churches. Chuck writes, "This is why the therapeutic gospel ... is so dangerous. It works from the outside in to restore self-esteem by enabling us to adjust to our circumstances. Carried far enough, it can lead us to feel good about being bad." Charles Finney said, "... Away with preaching a Christ not crucified for sin."

Steve Brown said, "The world drinks to forget; The Christian drinks (communion) to remember." Amen!

God bless.
