(Bob’s Note: During this month I have started reposting what I believe are the best spiritual truth articles which come across my computer screen to share with Espirational’s readers. I’m doing this because I realize how difficult it is for most people to find these articles and to join them together into a consistent pattern which makes sense. I’m hoping this effort will become like a digest of best articles promoting faith, hope, love, understanding, truth and positivity.* The article here is one Rogene found in her perusing the Web’s headlines and sent to me because of other actions by confused “Christian” believers who are proclaiming that to be faithful to Christ we must take up our weapons and “kill all the Muslims.” Please take a few minutes to read this article written by a Catholic priest as a sermon, after a congregate shouted those words at him while consuming his portion of communion. Joshua starts out by giving some important background and history which explains how he got to this strong stance against violence, but please read the whole article which the link leads you to, as it is the best expression of the true gospel of peace I have seen to date. Thank you pastor.)
(Note: None of this article is reproduced here
as I believe it is best read without interruption to get the full spiritual message.)
