Sunday sermon

SUNDAY SERMON 

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

TEACHING- [Past posts below- On some of these posts you will see old news comments- these were events that took place when I first made the videos/Posts. Because they fit into the teaching I did at that time- I need to leave them in- John]

I thought I would write on a strange thing that happened after I posted [wrote] last  weeks post. But instead I mentioned it on a video https://youtu.be/x32nDfblDpQ and for those who are interested you can watch the video.

 I just saw some of my homeless friends [As I write this] and it was interesting to see how they were having a fellowship- talking about some bible passages they covered in a bible study the day before- and for the most part- were a good example of the ‘Church in the Wilderness’.

The last few weeks I talked about the ongoing problem of the hit and run deaths- particularly of the homeless- that have happened in Corpus Christi the last few months.

How many of the homeless- who have died- been hit by vehicles- or were killed outright- were veterans.

Most of these [all?] I knew- some more than others- but they are indeed a part of a community- people who know one another- and when one of the homeless dies- the others on the street see it as the loss of a family member.

I write on these issues- to bring attention to them.

The last few weeks many in the media- the political spectrum- have had a fierce debate over who is at fault for the sending of mail bombs- or the outright murder of 11 Jewish people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

All of these acts are senseless- and need to be condemned outright.

On the above video- as well as others- I have tried to challenge our mindsets- when it comes to killing- in a broader way.

Meaning- we can easily condemn the act of a sick individual who might have indeed been incited by the political speech of our nation- or even of our media.

And when the act happens- a killing- a mail bomb- or whatever- then all sides are quick to condemn the act.

But when nations justify killing- war- actions that do the same things- have the same results- on a much larger scale-

We too often do not denounce that type of killing- the same way we denounce it on the smaller scale.

So I tried to challenge our mindsets somewhat on this as well.
