THE BEGINNING

The Beginning And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. And God said, "Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water." So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. God called the vault "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day. And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.

Charleston and Christian Response

Charleston and Christian Response By Mitiku Adisu Here is the story. On June 17, 2015 a young man shows up to a Wednesday night prayer meeting with concealed weapon on his person and a heart loaded with hate. Not the normal way to join or remain within the believing community. Judas did Jesus in with a stealthy kiss; Jesus was praying in the garden of Gethsemane at the time and it was night. Nothing is really new; no one knows save God what goes on in a person's heart and mind – not even the person once he or she is possessed by demons. "Then Satan entered Judas" [Luke 22:3]. The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.” [Jeremiah 17:9 -10] The Charleston visitor was made welcome, probably too overtly because not many show up on a Wednesday night, especially, for a prayer meeting.
