Matthew 5:44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

            It seems almost impossible today to pick up a headline or news story where someone isn’t “outraged” or accused of intolerance or threatened with the dire consequences of some nebulous sort of “social disapproval. For two millennia Christians have worn the label of intolerance whenever they were to make some sort of stand for the righteousness of God. That there have been far too many excesses on the part of people who were more about the power of the Church than faith in the abiding strength of Christ through His Holy Spirit is sadly true. I would venture to say that institutions notwithstanding the perpetrators of those outrages had strayed so far from Christ as to have cut themselves off from the promises of God. Thankfully, that is not my call but rests in the hands of God the Father. I have learned one thing from my time following Christ. I cannot apologize for the sins of other people whom I have never known, and I cannot wipe away the stain of what they may or may not have done.             If I were to be granted one prayer it would be that the supposed “wise”, the supposed “academicians”, the teachers of the culture would be brought to heel in their exaggerations of Christin intolerance. I have never witnessed intolerance among people whom I believe to be truly Christian. However, for every one “true’ Christian I have known I have known a thousand nominal Christians. Sounds a bit too harsh? Consider; the life of Jesus measured over and against the actions of the Church. Perhaps it would be well to take another look at the true Church Jesus is building and the human organization which seeks power and wealth
