Dr. Merrill Tenney once called Matthew 18 the Children’s Charter of Liberty. He called it that because in chapter 18 Jesus declared that children play a vital role in the kingdom of God. Jesus said, not only must we become as children — humble and trusting–in order to enter His kingdom, but any one who causes a child to stumble incurs the wrath of God. Here are Jesus words: “I tell you the truth, unless you become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me. But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.” To our shame, adults abuse thousands of children for sex and slavery in our country, and millions more around the world. Not only must God’s people work to reduce this abuse worldwide, we must redouble our efforts to bring children to faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Unless we focus on children, we may never bring our fading culture back from the cliff of no return.
Why did you stop publishing the Friday Daily Direction message that associated with the upcoming Sunday school lesson? We used the stories as part of our discussion; the stories were very interesting and informative.
[Thanks, Dr. Banks. Speaking of child abuse, here’s a shock that came my way on the web!]
OBAMA PROMOTES PUBLIC SEX
(and thinks children have a “right” to see it!)
Google “Zombietime” and click on “Up Your Alley Fair.” After recovering from the uncensored photos (!), Yahoo or Google “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up” on the “ucmpage” (even Jesus told Judas to hurry up – John 13:27). Also Yahoo “Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right.” View these before the predicted California earthquake happens a la Rev.16:19 (“the cities of the nations fell”) – and before meteorological “lows” like hurricanes and tornadoes which predictably reflect society’s “lows.” Gays have invented strange architecture – closets no longer opening on to bedrooms but on to public Main Streets where children can watch police-protected sex between naked men in “Madam” Nancy Pelosi’s brothel district! I wonder how soon San Fransicko’s underground saint – San Andreas – will get a big jolt out of what goes on above him and will suddenly change the political left into the EPICENTER-LEFT!
Since Luke 17’s predicted “days of Lot” (see Genesis 19) immediately precede the Second Coming, gays and gay-loving SF politicians are hurrying up, and thus helping to fulfill, Christ’s return as Judge and making the Bible even more believable! Not one to mince words, Jesus said in Mark 9:42 that anyone hurting a child in any way deserves to be hanged and have his body thrown into the ocean – and that includes any President whose favorite drink seems to be infanti-cider! It’s far from coincidental that the more America elevates gays and other violence, the more the cost of gas, food etc. goes up! If America is smart, it will pick up the big dust-covered book everyone owns and almost never reads – no, not the Sears catalog – and find out that the One who made the universe has some rights too!
Also Google “Obama a Black-Slavery Avenger?,” “Michelle Obama’s Allah-day,” and “Islam Will Purify Jews and Christians.”
PS – New pro-life slogans: “Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms – and legs and ears and eyes etc.!” & “Unborn babies should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!”
(Obama and his porn-protecting California friends – including Brown and Pelosi – did NOT approve of this message.)
