Media Reporting vs. God’s Reporting

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.

How to Pray for Enemies
God tells us to pray for our enemies. Even to love them. That is impossible on our own. Seeing the photos and news reports from Paris makes my blood boil and I want to bomb our enemies into oblivion. I want revenge. But that is not God's way. ...
