"Jesus Christ offers hope" was the start of Lisa Martinez' letter. What a refreshing letter. Thank you DCI for printing it. Yes, there is hope among all the tragedy in the world. Colossians 3:2 says "Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth."
Whatever we make an idol of will either be a cross, if we be believers, or a curse, if unbelievers. We are here for a minute compared to eternity. Kids are being taught negative lifestyles for a reason I can't fathom. What good does it do for a child to be taught alternative sex practices? As another letter put it, kids do not have access to Bibles in school. They are on their own so families can earn a living and they're taught by their peers what is right. If this is the norm today, try to imagine it in 50 years. We took prayer out of school about that long ago and look at it today! If anyone stood up then, they didn't do it in enough force to make a difference.
Lisa, your letter ended with a request for "believers" to stand up. A lot of us are but we need more. Praise God it is time if we are to save this generation. God bless them and all who care.
