Brothers and Sisters,
Let us not forget how the City of Man treated Christ and his message. Remember Stephen’s fate when he challenged the City of Man–But atlas, Saul would still be redeemed! These post-modernist who seek to destroy the Church, like Saul, may yet be renewed in the Incarnation of Goodness.
I am a sinner; I write these words to renew my soul in the Incarnate Lord, Christ–King of the Universe. Christ, who sits at the right hand of the Father, became the Son of Man for the purpose of redeeming our souls from the burning fires of those who seek to lift the City of Man to replace the City of God.
The citizens of the City of Man may silence the citizens of the City of God but rest easy Brothers and Sisters. The Word will break free! The City of Man may hand us in for imprisonment but our being having been saved by the Incarnation of Christ is more than our flesh.
The testing of our faith shall produce our perseverant nature. If our perseverance is found wanting and weak, pray to Christ. Let the faithful pray to God for he will give generously.
James 2:10: 10 For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it.
Have we Christians become outsiders?
The answer is that we have always been outsiders! The Church always has had its enemies; those enemies seek to subvert from within, as to do so from outside the walls of the faithful would only create more zeal for Christ.
Each one of us must determine those who do not walk in the counsels of the wicked.
The City of Man is the City of the Wicked; its natural course is not justice but to frame its desires as just. The City of Man is the natural enemy of the City of God as it seeks to create the temporal as Utopian. Pray for the faithful to reject such promises.
