Repost: Let Me Get This Straight

Alert: Busy Week readying for car show. Can’t take time to write. Just Re-Runs. Business as Usual here in Calvarytempleland.

Gotta know what’s coming down from the pulpit with this one. Clearing throat, “Let me get this straight…”, pastor pastor [sigh], you are between the proverbial rock and a hard place. Your micro-management skills are backfiring. Are you sure you’re not related to Hillary-It-Takes-A-Village? You sure do seem to have the same afflictions as that oh-so-righteous-soul. Government confiscating your computer, IRS investigation, emails, legal wranglings, alleged coverups, boys-will-be-boys behavior, investigations surrounding you and your BFFs. TRY not to sound like you just copped out on a speeding ticket. It is not a healthy selfie, ok? Best to take five-breathe-watch Barney-and learn how NOT to be. Honesty still is the best policy. Might want to share that with your BFFs.

But God says, “We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the Lord our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God” (Jeremiah 3:25). “Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear” (1 Timothy 5:20). “And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” (Ephesians 4:24).

"Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. If I warn the wicked, saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths." Ezekiel 3:17-18 NLT
