John and Pat share a follow up to a previous segment on VFN Radio regarding the NY newspaper that published the names and address and map of gun owners in NY. According to Fox News, blogger, Christopher Fountain exercised his constitutional right and published the names, address, and Facebook pages of the entire newspaper staff. Fountain like many others was offended, he told CNN he was offended by the newspaper’s conflating legal gun owners with some crazed tormented up in Newtown” and wondered how it’s employees would handle the same treatment according to Fox News. They continue to discuss that just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should speaking of what the newspaper did.
Iranian Pastor who released from Prison was rearrested on Christmas
John and Pat discussed how after Pastor Youcef, who was released from
serving his sentence in Iran was rearrested on Christmas day to finish the 45
days remaining of his sentence. He has served most of the three year
sentence with the exception of the 45 days. They ask us to keep Pastor
Youcef in our prayers. They also encourage us never to forget about the
evilness of evil, to stay alert and be on the front lines in God’s kingdom.
Don’t Worry; Trust God
So many people today are worrying so much about the New Year and over the
economy. John, Pat, and Chris encourage us not to worry but rather to trust
God. All you can do is what you can do then trust God with the rest. Worry is
the interest you pay on tomorrows problems. Worry brings torment, disturbing
thoughts, annoyances, and anxieties. Nothing good comes from worrying. We
need peace in our lives and we can have it when we trust God and not look to
ourselves to try to fix things that we can’t control.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says,
‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.’
Praising the Wicked
Greg and John share the moment of wisdom, found in Proverbs 28:4, those who
forsake instruction praise the wicked, but those who heed it resist them. They
share how many men and women today are openly praising wickedness. As
Christians we are to resist evil to fight against that which is fighting us by
fighting the good fight of faith.
