Wonderful, mayor

September 9, 2013

It was wonderful what Mayor Campana said at the Park yesterday. "There's good behavior and there's bad behavior," Campana said. "There's good behavior and there's sin. The enemy is working overtime....

Texas, I don't judge a deathbed confession necessarily, but the "perhaps" still didn't do him any good. It's called, nothing to lose.....when the reality is....He's all you need all the time, not just at/after death..

"Wonder how he made out at the Pearly Gate?"--USABorn

I am sure the angels in heaven were signing praises and having a big party when he trusted in Jesus.

Look at the thief on the cross! There is one of the parables that talks about a man getting a full days wages for only an few hour of work in the field; this parable applies to this situation. We should all rejoice. Hallelujah!

"Many want to treat Jesus as a genie in a bottle to be used when convenient. We need to have a on-going realtionship with him and love Him at all time."

Unfortunately, too may wait until they are approaching or on their death beds to seek Him.

I know a lifetime atheist who recently decided a few days before he died, that "perhaps" he had been mistaken in his disbelief of God.

Wonder how he made out at the Pearly Gate?

Sounds like the mayor has given up and is passing the buck by asking for divine intervention. If Jesus turns the city into utopia, I'd bet the mayor would then take credit.

Chuck,

"Be not deceived, God is not mocked."

That verse applies to anyone who would dismiss the power of Almighty God as trivial.

Enigma,

Our church does door to door, still trying to each the lost, it's just that we don't brag about it. Go is still on the throne. It isn't going to get any better. The only chance the world has is a revival, beginning with our own hearts. The Mayor's comments, regardless of your political persuasion, or beliefs/lack thereof are truth, because the God He is talking about is truth.

We keep kicking Him around like a football, coming up with more social programs, and evil is gaining...only until God steps in, period.

I'm not sure Williamsport's problems are a priority, given disease, starvation, famines, and a multitude of other ills in the world. I think we were given brains for a reason, to figure out some issues all by ourselves.

Well Mr. Mayor, I'm very glad to hear that you are a believer, but using the name of Jesus as just so much rhetoric is not going to help. Some sort of action is required. It's still your move.

That being said, the Christian community does need to step up here. We've got neighborhood watches springing up, but where is the Church outreach. Reaching the lost with the message of the gospel would go a long way toward relieving the crime problem.

My second amendment needs are already met, and anyone who chooses to violate crimes against me or my family will see that my needs have been met.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ --Matthew 7:21-23

Many want to treat Jesus as a genie in a bottle to be used when convenient. We need to have a on-going realtionship with him and love Him at all time. For those that turn to him, he meets their needs. He provides love, comfort, hope, peace, and salvation. He still allows mankind to make free choices and live with the consequences.

Then there are the naysayers that taunt him. They willfully live in sin and disobedience not wanting to follow Christ nor have Jesus to intervene in their lives but to go intervene in the "worse" sinners' lives.

Yes, it's wonderful that the mayor is good at saying stuff.Drugs and violence should be dwindling as we speak. I'm so glad the mayor has found a solution. He's very brave.
