A reaction to an encounter.


In this article is a link to a video. A video that shows the reality of today. It shows the consequences of someone not raised Biblically against those that that were.
First you will notice the age differences physically, then you will quickly see the maturity mentally.
The first thing that came to my mind was Proverbs 13:24
“Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children. Those who love their children care enough to discipline them..”
Now here someone will say: “Hate them? That is a lie, I don’t hate my children because I don’t discipline them.”
I will say look at this young man in this video and say that. It is obvious to those that have raised children that this “child” was never disciplined, and in fact was catered too. If he didn’t get his way he would throw a temper tantrum, which is exactly what you are witnessing in this video. Not only this, but when not disciplining a child the parent is determining how the child’s eternal fate may turn out. If they live a live that does nothing but coddle to them they end up selfish and self-serving which is totally counter the Bible. That being said and since most like this deny the Bible will reject this statement I have just made. But for those like myself that acknowledge that the Bible is fact understand that there is an eternal life. In fact scientist fully acknowledge that the “consciousness” does continue beyond the point that the human body ceases to function. Simply the soul is real and if the soul is real so is eternal life and if there is eternal life of the soul after the death of the body then it can be said there is a heaven and a hades. There is eternal life in the service of God and there is the pit of fire where those that deny there is a God will find themselves due to their selfish and self-serving ways in. This is why those that do not discipline their child hate them for they are sending to the pit of fire.
Now when this “child” attacked the pastor first off he just committed a crime the moment he violently touched him. Now was the actions of “Mark” correct? Yes and no. Mark’s actions was to defend his pastor, his fellow Christian, and most importantly his fellow CITIZEN from being assault. But notice the “child’s” reaction. He was expecting not to be interfered with. He even threw out the phase “YOU CALL YOURSELVES CHRSTIANS!!!”
Now you need to understand something. You are dealing with Americans and Christians. This is the same thing that the British didn’t understand in the 1700s. Just because we are Christian we understand how to respect, for we are taught to respect, unlike how this “child” was taught. As Americans we understand freedom and most importantly FREEDOM OF RELIGION.
Matthew 7:12 – Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.
Romans 12:10 – Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.
Philippians 2:3 – Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.
1 Peter 2:17 – Respect everyone, and love the family of believers. Fear God, and respect the king.
First Amendment – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Now that I have placed the first amendment here. Let’s break down what was broken by the “child” and what was supported by the Christians.
Broken by the “child” – he abridged the freedom of speech
Abridge – curtail – reduce in extent or quantity; impose a restriction on.
The “child” found the sign offensive and violently wished to have it removed from his sight. This is against the first amendment.
The “child” was not allowing the right of people to peaceably assemble.
The “child” did not petition the government about his grievances. Simply he didn’t call the police due to his grievance with the sign the pastor held.
Now the pastor showed true Christian values through this entire encounter and even showed love for this enemy that being the “child.”
Do I blame “Mark” for his action mostly I do not. It is coming upon that time when people will start to see why American Christians are a force not to push too far for when they do they shall see something that has not been seen since World War II. The pursuit of happiness is not limited to the selfish it is for all. America is a Christian nation. It was truly founded by those that wish to freely worship God. You threaten that freedom as was threatened in the 1700s then history most likely will repeat itself. If this does happen the “children” within this nation will find themselves lacking in the will and fortitude required. A fortitude that was instilled within Christians for they were disciplined when they grew up and know that temper tantrums result in nothing but the “child” ending up crying in the end.
