Note to “Need Him Ministry”, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, that paid for a full page add in the Silver City Sun-News July 4th, 2013:
Our country has been debating the issue of Separation of Church and State, from our founding, and continues today.
Both sides have gained some ground. Both have lost some ground.
Truth be told, you, N.H.M., choosing red for printing the word “God” in your ad, displays what you preach, an angry God. (pretty much what you use to keep your listener’s pockets emptying into your ministry). And royal blue for “Trust” (as in trust us to save you).
Why? Because to use royal blue for the word “God” denotes royal compassion…the nature of which Jesus said, “Follow me”…and He fed the hungry, healed the sick, forgave the sinner, and humbly washed someone’s feet. And that is what He meant when he said “follow me.”
And red for Trust…in that those who understand they must atone for their wrongs takes a degree of suffering, and if we are unable to atone with the person with whom we have wronged, instead of shelling out shekels for angry God ministers…feed the hungry…etc…you know the bible, fill in the rest.
But before you go…remember your past re Christian Crusades. Then look around you at the world at countries currently having a bloody civil war, and/or are threatening war. Islam is going thru the same “crusade” problems of a country run as a theocracy – like Rome was.
