Merkel: I believe in God, religion is my companion

Chancellor Angela Merkel has for the first time publicly spoken about her Christian faith, which she has always held to be a personal, private matter, despite being leader of the Christian Democratic Union.

"I am a member of the evangelical church. I believe in God and religion is also my constant companion, and has been for the whole of my life," she said on a videoblog when answering questions from a theology student.

"We as Christians should above all not be afraid of standing up for our beliefs," she added. ...

You could be right. Prophecy does have a way of being fulfilled. But, you may not like the end of the story.

"A Broken Mirror Leads to Reunion"
破鏡重圓 / 破镜重圆 - pò jìng chóng yuán
-Chinese proverb

This proverb is about a general under King Chén of the Southern Dynasty. King Chén cared nothing for ruling his country, and instead spent his days in pursuit of pleasure.

The general, whose name was Xú Dé Yán, felt his country was in grave danger because of the king’s behavior. And if there was a war, he would most likely be separated from his wife.

So he took a round mirror and broke it in half, giving one piece to his wife and keeping the other for himself. He told her that if they were separated, they could use the pieces of the mirror to recognize each other. They agreed to search for each other every year on Lantern Festival, when they would go to the market to sell mirrors.

It came to pass that the kingdom was attacked, and Xú Dé Yán and his wife were separated. They kept searching for each other, though, and eventually were reunited.

This proverb is said of a couple which has separated for any reason, but finally got back together.

Excellent comment. I agree with your thoughts and I could literally add many more scriptures in support of your Isaiah one. Women should be defined by their roles as wives and mothers, not by politics.

I am always wary of those who try to keep their faith quiet. Sorry, but I think the best approach is to be upfront about what you believe and leave the results in God's Hands. I read the Merkel article and frankly, I still don't know what she believes. Is she a member of a church? Which one and what does it teach?

Merkel urges German churches to agree on Luther fest

By Tom Heneghan, Religion Editor

PARIS (Reuters) - Chancellor Angela Merkel urged Germany's Protestant and Roman Catholic churches on Monday to stress their common beliefs at ceremonies marking the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation.

Although still five years away, the date has already prompted debate between Protestants preparing major celebrations and Catholics who rue the rebellion of the German monk Martin Luther in 1517 as the start of a painful split in western Christianity.

They have also begun discussing whether they could hold a joint service of reconciliation in 2017 "that recognizes before God all the injuries both churches inflicted on each other".

Speaking for the Catholic Church, Hamburg Archbishop Werner Thissen told the synod he hoped for an agreement on how to mark the anniversary.

"Times have changed dramatically since Luther," he said, noting that the Catholic Church's modernizing Second Vatican Council of 1962-65 had "learned a lot from Martin Luther".

"I believe in god and religion..." Always has the most hollow ring to it. I mean, who doesn't believe in (a) god or (a) religion??

"Just less than a year before the general election in Germany, is the chancellor fishing for votes from the declining Christian community, despite friction with the Pope and her liberal position on stem cell research, the Frankfurter Rundschau asked. "

Obviously this is what's going on. I just love how politicians play the Christian card when they are backed into a corner and need votes.
