Faith versus Fear of Virus, Ebola, Isis etc. continued
If one listens to the news on any channel, you can become very fearful. Our country is out of control economically, socially and spiritually. There are wars, rumors of war, illness, social evil, and those who are still fighting to take God out of our country in every sense of the word. Knowing that God loves me unconditionally and I am forgiven when I make a mistake, I don't worry about what is going on in my world. Of course, I will do what I can to right the wrongs around me, but I know that I can only do so much. God has promised me that the day will come when evil will be thrown into hell. Yes, Jesus spoke about hell many times in the New Testament. Either Jesus is the Son of God with all authority from heaven, or He is a lunatic lying idiot. Everyone must choose who He is. In faith, I have learned to call on God in the name of Jesus in every situation. He has proven to be faithful and I can look back and see all of the blessings I have received. I don't deserve the wonderful life God has given me and I thank Him everyday. I only wish I could choose for others so that they could have the same life through faith. God cannot bless someone who does not believe in Him nor trust Him. That makes no sense!! They are on their own. When I close my eyes in death, I will not fear, only trust.
