SHOULD A PASTOR OR A PRIEST OWE A JET OR A LUXURIOUS YACHT?
As a pastor, I am deeply sorry to say that Bill Hybels (picture) has resigned from Willow Creek Church(USA) and has been accused of sexual misconduct. The truth of the fact is that he now acknowledges that, on several occasions, he should have behaved differently.
There is an investigation in course at Willow Creek Church.
One thing I am sure of: a pastor and/or a priest should not - by no means - have a luxurious car or a jet. There is no excuse. None at all. Jets and luxurious cars do not actually fit as a symbol of humbleness.
Mr. Lula got to fool the world as being a very honest-serious leader in Brazil. See this paragraph of the article at New York Time's site: Mr. da Silva, 72, is no ordinary prisoner: Outside the building where he is confined is a plaque with his name on it, commemorating the opening of the building in 2007, during his presidency of Brazil. Well, Mr. Lula has been in jail for the past 15 days and it seems he shall stay for a longer time... All corrupt must be put into prison. PCSampaio
Iran does not want any change in the accord - of course. Yet, there is no other way of trying to pursue some 'peace' in the Middle East. Iran has repeatedly declared the desire to destroy Israel. Trump has a totally different style that of Obama. Things will be bad in case no New Deal comes into force. Watch and see.
THE HURRICANE INSIDE MY CHEST!
No doubt: life has been severely affected on the brethren living in Florida over the past years, due to the frequent hurricanes. Devastation is all over and will never, ever be forgotten.
The pain is out there! But the pain is also - and mainly! - inside the chest, the mind, the whole body! And now!? What to do?
1. Believe it or not, God has everything under control;
2. He, God, has His own ways to councel-advise-draw people's attention;
3. The world will NOT (probably) finish now...
4. Other hurricanes (truth fact) will come over, bearing different names;
5. Get protection here and now!
What protection do I mean? Well, independently of hurricanes, there is peace in the valley of the faith. Yeah: you need faith to humbly accept that there is a 'power' up up there... and we, human beings, are mere pilgrims on earth, with a glimpse of existence aroubt 80-90 year old!?
Listen up! Life is short...
God bless you this week, and protect you and your family.
