the flight of the eagle

“The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil … causing many to have pierced themselves with many sorrows. They sought money more than faith in God,” 1 Timothy 6:10.

Causing many to experience verse nine. Which reads, “But those driven to be rich. Manage to fall into temptation. And become unable to escape many foolish, and hurtful lusts which drown people in ruin and then destruction.”

It’s not money that is evil. It’s the people, who make money evil by how they use money.

This Padre can attest to that truth. People with substantial wealth have made my ministries possible. And have done so for others, and have not sought public recognition. They look at their generosity, as a God called ministry. And they are, all blessed by the Almighty.

And every coin has two sides, people who have benefited from such generosity have also used money inappropriately.

Paul in his Timothy epistles certainly is addressing, we the clergy. For some money is their God, as they live in luxury, and through scare tactics, they bilk their parishioner’s penniless in order to maintain that life style.

No doubt Paul is also addressing the ordinary wage earner, who also can be the culprits Paul is addressing. With this caveat its a warning to all of us, excluding no one! Do not make money your God! Make money an avenue of ministry. Select carefully and be blessed!

It’s the balanced life that is to be chased. God has abundantly blessed America. Picturesque through Daniel’s eagle.

“The first was a lion and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth, and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it,” Daniel 9:7.

Often interpreted as the people fleeing religious persecution in Great Britain. Crossing the ocean to create America!

Known globally, as a people with a heart of generosity. Wherever there was a need during peace or war. The global community could depend upon America for assistance. That’s how America was tagged ‘Uncle Sam.’

Historians assert it was a miracle that two world wars survived totalitarian attacks. They credit America, as the source for preserving freedom.

But in modern America today the pendulum is tipping far from God’s edicts of faith and generosity. And more towards the pendulum of destruction, and perdition.

Perdition is worse than destruction because it results in the complete collapse of the nations Christ centered spiritual infrastructure.

But until the end, this must be our testimony. “But we are not of those, who draw back unto perdition, but of them that believe to the saving of the soul,” Hebrews 10:39.

This Padre duly ordained, and also having a degree in political science is available to address broad spectrum of organized secular groups within our communities. Right through to the many denominational churches doting the American landscape.
