Let them carry on...Romans 22:11...WE just need to make sure that we are raising our children up in the way that they should go...guarding their hearts, minds, bodies, and souls...we must take NOTHING for granted and be constantly vigilant....monitor our children as f their very souls were At stake... just another reason to home school..
... another tragic case of Christians playing judge... I am commanded to love the person and detest the sin.... I do not have the authority to save souls nor to condemn them.... that belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ alone.... how many opportunities to share the gospel will be lost by alienating sinners? that certainly would have left me out, as there is nothing good in me but the Christ that lives in me.... we must not listen to Satan as he whispers in our ears to be judgmental.... when we judge, Satan scores one for his side. I will continue to hate their sin, but I will leave the judgment to the Lord.
Just ace thought, D. Creswell....if someone had come in to annihilate those crucifying Christ, our salvation never would have taken place... nothing happens to anyone on this planet without it going across the Lords desk first...God's ways are not our ways. We will all have our day to die, unless the Lord comes for us first....
Just a small PostScript here... it appears that the media is downplaying the accountability of Bergdahl in this situation to justify the release of the Taliban.... with so many puppet on so many strings, they are bound to get terribly tangled sooner or later.... but then we are to expect that sort of behavior from the world,riight?
I agree with Shane from SoCal commenting on how the media can project rock solid biased opinions... I agree also with his comment do we really know what happened.... if it were not for the interview that I saw with his personal commanding officer talking about the fact that he deserted his post, I would have no opinion at all. after listening to his commanding officer and fellow soldiers however, my heart was breaking for the families of the soldiers who lost their lives trying to save this man, rather than for the family who had their feelings hurt by ‚ÄĚcomments‚ÄĚ. As family reported to be Christian by their pastor, I exhort the Bergdahl family thru love in Christ to be humble and grateful for the return of their son and to be heartbroken and grateful to the family members that lost their sons in their attempt to rescue Bergdahl.... to be offended by comments is not of God... there are still rules to playing on a team, and if indeed Bergdahl did desert his post and bring about the death of those trying to rescue him, according to the rules there should be accountability... in a society where there is no accountability, playing the victim becomes the norm, and there is no longer truth.
I come from a huge military family, and everyone signed up for their tours of duty, just as Bergdahl did... every man and woman that enlist for combat understand the rules of the game... is very sad, but truthful to say, that Bergdal's situation was an occupational hazard... the men deserted his troops, and has blood on his hands for at least six man that died trying to rescue him... he is a fool, and the man that traded 5 murderous ungodly butchers for his release is a bigger fool yet... please put your sympathy cards back in your wallet... the Bergdahl family has their son back, unlike the families of the soldiers that died trying to save him.... denial by his parents of his treasonous behavior does not change the truth.
