The readings for Sunday June 25, 2017 have been hanging on me like a pit bull to my behind:
Jesus said to the Twelve:
“Fear no one. Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known. What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.
God gave me a vision of the real war taking place in our nation and in the church. Each of us defines the truth as we feel it and the truth changes as our feelings and emotions change. Dualism, Relativism, Pluralism and Progressivism are the fancy words of our modern era. Proclaim it from the house tops and fear no one.
and Jeremiah said: “I hear the whisperings of many: ‘Terror on every side! Denounce! let us denounce him!’
All those who were my friends are on the watch for any misstep of mine. ‘Perhaps he will be trapped; then we can prevail, and take our vengeance on him.’Who would seek to silence me?
