Over the past two weeks in the Lectionary readings, the Gospel passage has been taken from Mark 7. In this passage, we see the Pharisees noticing that the disciples were not keeping with ritual law.…Continue

"your faith is not to help you to avoid problems but to go through them with stability" - Athletes for God@Twitter

Comment by sgtrey on Sunday

Wow guys. This was a summer to make me or break me. I could detect spiritual forces against me in my neighborhood; so I contacted a local minister. He informed me that there were several street gangs which operate in my community. So I did research online on street gang harassment. It said that it was conducted by the government at the federal level against people considered a threat. I'm thinking, could that be right? Then about the same time someone showed me a passage of scripture  from the New World Translation. It reads "because we have a struggle not against blood and flesh, but against the government, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places" Ephesians 6:12. But somehow I managed to get to God, and it was like Jesus calming the storm instantly.  Perhaps the threat was that of being exposed. Therefore  I plan to share my story with everyone I can.

I am in agreement with the comments by bigblkmuscles concerning capitalists.  It is not just the capitalist system which is sick. There are people in this society so given over to idolatry that they cannot even govern their own passions. Like packs of animals they use seemingly innocent business establishments as a front for their meeting activities to hook up.  Even a grocery store. Not only is this unhealthy; it is disrespectful to our elderly, and sets a bad example for the children.

 bigblkmuscles I think those quotes from Pope Francis makes a lot of sense. Thanks for sharing them

Capitalists ... are new worshipers of the biblical golden calf

 
“Money must serve, not rule, yet we calmly accept its control over us. Money originated in a profound human crisis, the denial of the primacy of the human person. The worship of the ancient golden calf has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money.”

 

 

Invisible hand of God ... replaced by greedy hands of capitalism

 
“Never trust in the so-called ‘invisible hand’ of the markets and economic remedies like cutting workers to increase their profits. The world needs a better distribution of income.”

 

 
New Tyranny ... capitalists are destroying democracy worldwide

 
“Ideologies increase the wealth of a minority exponentially, increasing the inequality gap, separating the most humans from the prosperity enjoyed by those happy few. A new tyranny is thus born, unilaterally and relentlessly imposing its own laws and rules.”

 

 

Trickle-down economics ... is a total capitalist disaster

 
“Free market trickle-down economics causes injustice. A naïve trust in the culture of prosperity and those wielding economic power deadens society.”

 

 

Inequality ... is the root cause of all ‘social ills’ in the world

 
“Inequality is the root of social ills. Help the poor, reject markets and speculation, attack the structural causes of inequality, or you will never solve the world’s problems.”

 

 

Consumerism ... is out-of-control, destroying family/social values

 
“Today’s economics promotes inordinate consumption, increases inequality, damages the social fabric, increases violence and serious conflicts. Blaming the poor and poorer countries for their troubles is misplaced, solve the corruption spreading at the top.”

 

 

Competition ... capitalist addiction to profits is killing morality

 
“The laws of capitalist competition, the survival of the fittest rule. The powerful feed upon the powerless, the vast majority are marginalized: No work, No opportunities. No escape. News is a two-point loss in stocks, but not the death of elderly homeless?”

 

 

Conservatism ... encourages free destruction of natural resources

 
“In a world where everyone has their own subjective truth, citizens cannot develop common solutions that transcend personal ambitions. We need a new way of living and thinking that’s more humane and noble, that brings dignity to all humans on this earth.”

 

 

Exploitation ... treating humans as mere economic commodities is sin

 
“Yes, humans are now consumer goods, used then discarded in our widespread throwaway culture. It is no longer about oppression and exploitation. Today, the excluded ones are no longer society’s underside, no longer even a part of it, but outcasts, leftovers.”

 

 

Capitalism has lost its moral compass, turned its back on God

 
“Behind capitalist economics lurks a rejection of ethics and God that debases humans. This lack of morality and ethics results in God calling for solutions outside marketplace economics, to make it possible for a more balanced and humane social order.”

I'm learning to trust in God to provide for my needs; instead of trying to do things in my own strength. It feels kind of funny at first.  I guess you have to get used to it.

Just took down and put away the last of the Christmas decorations because today is the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord and that officially ends the Christmas season. The challenge now is keeping that spirit of joy, hope and anticipation going as we go forward with the routine of lives for the rest of the year. Honestly why should joy, hope and anticipation be reserved for Advent and Christmas? Hold on to it as long as you can. Let's all do something to make 2013 better than 2012.

Very powerful prayer John and so needed. Thank you.
