Mayor Bloomberg Now wants to ban the display of Cigarettes and Tobaccoes; Is he only doing what the people want?
John, Greg, and Pat discuss how Mayor Bloomberg wants to ban something else. The NYC mayor who has already tried to ban large sodas but was just overruled by a judge the day before it went into effect. Now the mayor wants to ban cigarettes and tobacco from being displayed in any store. They continue to share how the Mayor is only doing what the people want. If the citzents want the government to take care of the their health expenses then they shouldn’t mind the government telling them what they can and cannot intake in their bodies. Politicians have just always responded to the will of the the people. In the days when Jesus walked on earth Pilate only did what the people wanted him to do. He didn’t want to release Barrabas but he responded to the people and Jesus was whipped, beaten and crucified. You can choose God to be over you or the government but you can’t have both. Choose God.
Just because you can doesn’t mean you should
Greg, John, and Pat share just because you can doesn’t mean you should. They continue to share how in Acts 16 Paul cast a demon out from a woman when he was irritated by what was possessing her. The demon that possessed her enabled her to discern spirits. When that spirit was cast out of her the man that had enslaved that woman to make money, caused such an uproar that landed Paul and Silas bound in jail. Paul was beaten and put into chains. That didn’t have to happen. However, Paul and Silas were not offended but instead praised God and their worship was so received in heaven that the jail shook and they were freed. Even though you may be facing an imprisonment of your own doing, worship God and watch him respond to your worship.
