Media Reporting vs. God’s Reporting

posted by Ruth Graham

Charles Colson died yesterday.

I have been interested in reading and hearing the media report on it.

The media has reported his death. In a 10 inch column 3/4s of it recounts his transgressions during the Watergate scandal. And there were many. Then they mention his conversion to Christ.

However, the report in heaven might have been like this: ” We welcome one of our choice servants into Heaven today. He was soundly converted some 40 years ago and followed Christ closely until our Father called him to be with us. There are many here today because of his life of obedience. He did “see Me in prison and visited Me.”  He influenced many to live godly and obedient lives. He was an example of the wonderful grace our Father  pours out on His children.”

There was a bit of a mess he stirred up some years ago in the American ploticial system but I have forgotten all about it.

I welcome him with open arms  to join us for all of eternity. I am well pleased with this servant of mine. Let’s pray for his beloved wife, Patty, whom he left on earth.”

    hello Ruth, I like this story. This is in my mind just good ole fashion forgiveness. it is one of the hardest things to come to terms with, and without jesus i assume its impossible to truly forgive. i was assualted last year in september and it left me with considerable amount of emotional trauma. it took me 20 yeaqrs to come to terms with ptsd from combat and then the assault happened and threw me into a real bad mental spell. one thing jesus and i have worked on is my forgiveness of the person who assualted me and how that is as important to healing as a anything else. thanks for being who you are and all the great things you do.

Good and Evil
The contrast between evil and good has been in the news and on our front pages this week. It was a thrill to see Dr. Brantley on the news yesterday as he left Emory University Hospital hand in hand with his wife. It is a miracle that he is alive and expected to live a full life. Ebola is a deadly

Rest, Elijah!
Many of us are familiar with the story of the great Old Testament prophet, Elijah. Quite a man. He confronted the wicked Queen Jezebel many times - stood for God's truth and authority at his own risk. Jezebel, with her husband, Ahab, were formidable, powerful, calculating adversaries. They struck t

Hope vs. Despair
Have you ever been depressed? Low? Lower than a "lizard's belt buckle", as my mother used to say. "Cast down", as King David said in Psalm 42. David wrote he cried day and night while men taunted him. He thought back to the good times which made him feel worse. He uses the word,  "disturbed" -

The Iron Dome
Last Saturday night, my little town did its fireworks - we do them the week after the 4th. As I crawled into bed, I could hear all the booms and see the glow from the explosions in the distance. Of course, I couldn't help but think of those in war-torn areas of he world. I remember being in Sar

A Pedophile's Dream...Sex Traffickers Welcome!
There is a lot of talk about the immigration issue and the situation on our Southern border. But I have not heard anyone mention that having all these unaccompanied children in our border states and beyond is a real dream come true for pedophiles and sex-traffickers. Strangers are allowed to step fo
