Never base your belief on emotion whether it be the faith (the feeling one gets on living inner energy) or on doubt the belief there of that express's self in emotions of turmoil and poor inner low energies in self. Self of perception in ones self and poor perception of God, who and what He is. Very high living energy that is to reside in your heart. This living energy is known to us as faith, living faith.

] All kill their inspiration and sing about their grief
Over love... we shine like a
We're falling from the sky

] And in the world a heart of darkness
A fire zoneWhere poets speak their heart
Then bleed for it
Jara sang - his song a weapon
In the hands of one
though his blood still cries
From the ground .... You know I am a fan of U2 and the message they bring. You know in Rahabs day no one though of her importance nor did they imagine that God would honor her in scripture. No one in the day thought of Mary as a significant role model to the people of faith, they do now. It was the destitute the scorned and the despised that made it to the the Hall of Fame in Heaven that succeeded in failure and utter rejection and dejection. Kings and Queens cloaked in humiliation and pain. I believe in love, Heaven's love that knows no barriers in religion, politics or color. I, eye, i believe in Love!

comes like a drug
In God's Country
Sad eyes, crooked crossesIn God's Country
Set me alight .... The Foolish Virgins sleep and will weep. The Wise Virgins will shine with love and grace.
Matthew 5:13“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor?
Salt preserves and in this case the society of life on earth. Looking at our times and the late stage of society that we understand it as we have to conclude that we lost our salt and flavor. As a result it would appear that the way we live on earth will not succeed much further. Evolve? no it does not appear that way for we lost our flavor. Our flavor was suppose to be as described in verses 3-12. God help us if we have to gauge it by the professing Christians that post hear on this forum. For the most part we fail in what Jesus commissioned us in His stead. Matthew 5:3“God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him
for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
4God blesses those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
5God blesses those who are humble
for they will inherit the whole earth.
6God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice,b
for they will be satisfied.
7God blesses those who are merciful
for they will be shown mercy.
8God blesses those whose hearts are pure
for they will see God.
9God blesses those who work for peace
for they will be called the children of God.
10God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right
for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
11“God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. 12Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.....Hate filled political propaganda in Christ's name at that. Oh! the intolerance to other peoples belief systems or practices. Such prejudice. Yes we are living in the End Times of course the Salt lost its flavor. The Salt we are suppose to be has nothing to do with political or even religions that may be different from each and every different Christian individual out there. The flavor is that of the actions of a born again spirit that is pure and executes justice in the way of mercy love and peace and all that is good and Godly. Trusting Jesus' words I do have to conclude that they will know us by our fruit. The fruits of the spirit. Galatians 5:22 GOD'S WORD® Translation (©1995)
But the spiritual nature produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,...If one puts down their rose colored glasses down for a bit we have to conclude that the fruits of kindness patiences love joy
goodness is not being manifested by us who profess and claim the Name of God as Jesus from our lips. Unless we look at it from a very dark tinted pair of decaying rose colored glasses. Cant blame us for it, why do we really want to see us as we really are. Its a painful sight to behold.
