Destroy?

There's something I want to let you know about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's not something new.  It's something from the past.

And, it's a LwL entry that I actually wrote about 7 years ago, and forgot to post.  So, I decided to share it with you, today.

Now, isn't this something to think about?!

On Saturday, March 5, 2011 the Windsor Star printed an article in the WORLD section of the newspaper on P. A11, entitled: Chechen rebel wants holy war.

The article tells us that Doku Umarov has called on Russian Muslims to launch a holy war against their government, with Umarov saying, "Destroy the enemies of Allah, open up the fronts,".

Knowing that I sometimes obtain an on-line link to articles that strike me as something I might want to tell others about, I went on-line to The Windsor Star site, to retrieve the article.

In the long-past when I have done this type of thing, I've had no problems doing this, but in the recent-past, I've had terrible trouble doing this. 

What I mean is, a while back I had no problem retrieving the article I wanted to obtain, but as of recent times, I have to search and search and search before locating the article in question.

Here is an example of what I mean. Check out this link telling me there is no article entitled what I am looking for:

Interesting! Did you scroll down and look further? If not, you may not have noticed what was printed there. If you did, you'll know that the article is in link format, listed on that very page.

What is this world coming to?

It seems that terrorism even has our newspapers afraid to put their money where their mouth is. What I mean is, while mainly older people who are not always computer literate or those who would prefer to not use the internet, purchase the printed and sometimes delivered edition of the newspaper, most younger, computer-literate people read it on-line.

Wow! So, it's okay to make us oldies or non-computer users aware of what's truly happening in our world.  But, I wonder why they feel it is necessary to make news important to our security obscure to the younger or more computer-literate generations, who don't always have the time to search out information that wants and needs to be read, but is often overlooked.

After all, many who should be concerned, aren't.  There is more to this entry, but it will have to wait, until next week.

Even so, I thought about how we need to look to our Lord.  After all, He's far more important than this world.

Thinking of this, made me think of 1 John 2:15, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him."

Amen!  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

We need God's love.

We can't live without God's love.  Not just here on earth, but for eternity.

How can you receive God's love? 

Trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... and you shall gain salvation, and become a member of God's family.

God will love you, if you do this.


Until next time...
