Bad news abounds.
How about some good news?
What does it take to be a church officially recognized by the Communist government of China? What are the practical and theological implications of being state-sponsored? And how many unregistered (ie, underground and persecuted) churches are there?
I suppose I could Google for an answer, but I haven’t yet.
Killed in Iraq yesterday — his 21-year-old nephew:
I wonder if the young lad in the photo knows.
And if he does, what does he feel? And think?
He’s only sixteen and he’s already accused of murder?
Sixteen of them?
That makes at least sixteen dead tragedies and at least one living one.
What else is there to say?
The Miami Herald’s headline for the story is interesting (Remember Berlin Wall? Now, think Mexico) yet deeply flawed as an historical parallel.
My recollection of the Berlin Wall is at least three-fold:
So when should anyone think of the Berlin Wall when a US-Mexico border fence is discussed?
In my view, the parallel the Miami Herald expounds is borderline at best.
If you haven’t yet, at least scan the article/editorial. Notice the words and expressions that serve to plant and foster and anti-fence bias.
Oh, and why should a conservative Anabaptist care about the issue?
Good question. 🙂
Have you ever heard of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement?
I would say that extinction and movement have a way of being mutually exclusive. If the members truly are for voluntary extinction, how can they possibly be part of any movement?!
Not very dedicated, I would say.
Not that I believe Mr. Knight should voluntarily extinctivize himself, but what’s he doing here then?
Many of its members are children. Good deal. They were all born, albeit involuntarily. I don’t find that particularly unique — ever since Adam and Eve, all humans have been children.
Oh wait. I get it now. Membership in this organization is comprised of adults and non-adults.
Am I mocking Mr. Knight and the organization? Perhaps, though I really don’t mean to.
I hope Mr. Knight finds a better purpose for living.
OK, Christians. How do you pray for a man like this? Or would we even consider praying for him?
You could even right-click the image (in Windows XP anyway) and select to have it be your wallpaper. As a reminder, you know.
I’m sure this man has lots of hate directed toward him. What he needs is God’s love directed toward him.
Yeah, I know. Easier written than done.
