I don't know that America is so perfect with the highest murder rate in the developed world, corrupt law enforcement running rife, your government
not being what it was supposed to be etc.
But in my book America is still the good guy.
That said I hope you get better, to me I believe this.
As long as you are a CHRISTIAN first and foremost then denomination is neither here nor there, as long as CHRIST is your living and reigning king,
your true government then it does not matter.
The Church is NOT your savior Christ is your Savior and the Church is supposed to be his body on earth, it is exactly that among the true believers,
it is not the building, the denomination, the organization but the church is the body made up of those that come to Jesus first and foremost.
Those whom divide the church by denomination are simply corrupt politician's wanting there own piece of the kingdom.
There is only ONE king, ONE savior.
Martin Luther was a Jesuit priest, his action's were correct because the Corrupted catholic hierarchy were no longer spreading the good news, they
were denying the people the good news in there own language and instead having it ministered in a dead language non of them could speak while it's
internal structure as an organization was riddled with corruption, princes of the church living like well princes from the donation's which were
actually meant to help the poor especially among the congregation whom ARE the church.
But you know the Lutheran priest hood is actually no better, oh there are good guy's and pastors in both denomination's but there are princes of the
church - made ultra wealthy from the donation's - in the Lutheran fold as well.
As long as you hold to Jesus I know he will hold to you and may god bless you, your family and keep you safe.
Remember those that are true believers in Christ regardless of there denomination are your brothers and sisters, you are actually part of a real
church with them, one whose only denomination is Christian.
God bless and keep you, may the road's rise with you and the wind be always at your back.
