This past Sunday the West family attended our church services at Community Christian in Tamarac Florida. Associate Pastor Bill Davis delivered the sermon based on Chapter 27 of “The Story” examining the mystery of Jesus Christ’s resurrection and the beginning of the Christian faith and church.
The sermon was all about how this incredible event gave birth to something that continues to draw men and women. Next week, Senior Pastor Scott Eynon will continue as we go into the New Testament Acts of the Apostles. At the end of the service, Scott came up and invited those in the congregation who have not made a faith decision for Christ to do so — as he does every Sunday.
Now, contrast that message with this sermon given last week Friday on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas) and you tell me who is delivering a message of peace?
The reality of your enemy must become your own, as it eventually will anyway. I wonder why Pastor Scott doesn’t demand conversion, paying of a tithe tax, or death in order to grow our church attendance? Always remember the Christian faith grew by peaceful, often sacrificial proselytization (and for those of you shouting “what about the Crusades?” read this). Conversely, this theocratic-political totalitarian ideology known as Islam has been spread by way of the sword and conquest since 622 AD.
When tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide.
