God’s favourites

25 09 2006

Apostle once said, God does not practise favouritism, but God sure has His favourites. I’ve seen for months many people in church and around about their calling, about their visions, their lives are full of miracles and with signs and wonders; obviously they seems to be God’s favourites. I wonder what’s my position in God’s eyes?

As i was reading through the bible again, stopping at the life of Abraham, he sure made lots of mistakes; in order to hasten God’s plans of making him fathers of nations, Sarah gave Hagar to Abraham and born to him Ismael (the father of the Arabs), and then, the many lies that a few of them caused Abraham to make treaties between them, which God honoured, like Abimelech (Till today, the philistines are a constant trouble to the Jews), and yet, such sins of Man will not frustrate God’s plans for His people and the ultimate fulfilment of the Messiah’s coming in the person of Jesus.

Hello Daniel,

I do not want to start an argument or debate as to the true Church- Catholic or Protestant- but I do want to make one thing clear, if you contiunue to insult and blaspheme against the Holy Roman Catholic Church and create further dissent among Christian bloggers on the net, then, there is a newly passed law that can be used against ignorant people like yourself who wish to create discord withing the inter-religious community here in Singapore.

I’m not insisting that you recant. All I’m asking if for you to remove all the posts that critize or insult the Roman Catholic Church and it’s clergy; posts that may offend Catholic bloggers.

Do take this humble request or I’m sorry that I’ll have to pursue this matter.

(Matthew 18:6 – But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.)
