The Jews hated the Gentiles. The Dead Sea Scrolls contained a teaching that Jews should “hate all the sons of darkness each according to his guilt in God’s vengeance.” Some might say the Jews had cause to hate the Gentiles for the number of times they were mistreated, taken into captivity and slavery.

Principles of restoration
“Now to him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began” (Romans 16:25 NKJV).

Good examples of Christ living in us
They said to the mountains and to the rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who is seated on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to withstand it?’ Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

A plea for restoration
Men like John Wycliffe, in the 1300s, saw a corrupted church, which led, in turn, to remarkable wickedness. They called for men to use scripture only to determine the will of God.
Good people are shocked by the changes of recent days. Hatred seems to grow by the minute. Sin is openly practiced and set forth as the way every right thinking person should walk, or at least praise. Continue reading “A plea for restoration”
