When we call for violence – even retribution for martyrs – how do we justify it?

“Quit your worship charades. I can’t stand your trivial religious games: 

Monthly conferences, weekly Sabbaths, special meetings— meetings, meetings, meetings—I can’t stand one more! Meetings for this, meetings for that. 

I hate them! 

You’ve worn me out! I’m sick of your religion, religion, religion, while you go right on sinning. 

When you put on your next prayer-performance, I’ll be looking the other way. 

No matter how long or loud or often you pray, I’ll not be listening. 

And do you know why? 

Because you’ve been tearing people to pieces, and your hands are bloody. 

Go home and wash up. 

Clean up your act. 

Sweep your lives clean of your evildoings so I don’t have to look at them any longer. 

Say no to wrong. 

Learn to do good. 

Work for justice. 

Help the down-and-out. 

Stand up for the homeless. 

Go to bat for the defenseless. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭1‬:‭13-17‬ MSG)

Looking forward to trying this out.

Now I just need the roads to melt so I can get some filters.

Thanks Laurie, HDiddy, IDiddy and Little Miss!

Not part of my plans

Well this wasn’t part of my plans this week, but luckily it’s not the flu or strep – just highly annoying crud.

Now I’m just hoping I can make it through the week without the kids or Laurie getting it (again).
