The best way to reach any goals is through Jesus-Christ. Jesus thought how to go through life apart of the world, and by so to be free of most condemnation and bless by believing in him. Never the less we are all sinners and myself I must carry my part of the world’s burden; so I criticize and I search for different solutions for our surrounding. It is so simple when we put our trust in God. Jesus said do not judge and you will not be judge. I believe that all sins can be pardoned; we must repent of our sins and pray the Holy Ghost to find our better way.
In Quebec the people are becoming more like the gentiles of the bible. Still trying to create a sociable relation with everyone where love and fraternity can flourish, where families can live in peace. Looking at the empty churches it feels like we are putting aside our belief in God as if we can really succeed without him… Really if everyone on the planet would love one another practicing true charity we could wonder what becomes of all that is invisible because we could be in Eden, still something would be missing for all those hoping in an afterlife.
It is well to create a society that is good to live in but there will always be some mishaps, there are those people like you and me that succumb to temptation and those that make a career out of it, they distort all good reasoning and abuse as much as they can may it be for luxury, cupidity, power etc. So we create laws that are of course transgressed. Man as changed very little for thousands of years and probably since its present form.
Charity may be thought but to me all resides in Jesus-Christ. With Christ we can lose our way and find it again like did the prodigal son. The churches in Québec are abandoned and I can only put the blame on our servants the preachers and the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, of course it is hard to obtain recognizance from obstinate people. Like Jesus said: The first will be last; like the Jews that wouldn’t open their heart or the workers that wanted more pay than the others.
If the Pharisees in Mathew 23 where to sever with what tended to the law, our preachers did not ask enough of our laicism. Of course to err is human and I believe that in Quebec the error was to mix religion with politics. Many French speaking people are still looking for better recognition and others are just too overwhelmed with our modern situation to really care or realize the distress of so many others. I am not judging but what once caught my attention was when a well educated preacher had a brief television appearance. He had a way easy to follow and I thought how come we don’t see him more often? And I said to myself they must be studying more for themselves rather than preaching. Of course I did not know all the work he might have been doing nor how it works with television deals…
Mathew 23, 1-12 New International Version
1 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. 5 “Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteriesa wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7 they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others. 8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. 11 The greatest among you will be your servant. 12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
If the Pharisees tie up heavy loads on other people’s shoulders, Christ is charitable with his grace. The best way is showed so we must follow it but a small well intended imitation is all ready good. Facts are that we must remember what is true.
May the grace of Jesus Christ be with you.
