Simplicity of Faith
“Even a child makes himself known by his doings,
whether his work is pure, and whether it is right”
The simple child-like faith given by God is pure, easy, and void of hypocrisy. It requires religion to cloud its pure waters, to contaminate its simplicity, and make that which is true into something obscure and false.
Doing is the simple outflow of believing.
“Little children, let no one lead you astray;
he who is doing righteousness is righteous”
1 John 3:7
“I have always thought the actions of men
the best interpreters of their thoughts.
Freedom and Law
freedom and law
“The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings capable of law, where there is no law, there is no freedom“
Lawlessness is the atmosphere of Satan himself. Chaos, destruction and mayhem is the short-lived expression of men without reason, hearts without feeling and actions without purpose. It is the justice of God to decree that every form of evil has within its own expression the deeds of its own destruction.
The followers of Mao were imprisoned and murdered by the very mobs they once were a part of. The Brown Shirts of Hitler brought their own destruction upon them by the very evil they perpetuated. There are many other examples of this one truth; one simply needs to read the annals of all civilizations to comprehend the days in which we live. History declares the sure end of all who walk in the ways of darkness. The sad testimony of history is that it ever rises to repeat its own sorrows.
Yet in the midst of all the darkness the power of the incomprehensible love of God is ever within reach to all who would come.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven”
