My Views of Prison Ministry

 

I would like to share what I see going on that causes people to not function as they would like. Each of us is born not knowing really what were going to become, so we had to be taught to do what was right. When we understand right, it brings a sense of belonging to others, which is having relations with one another, that are positive and a blessing.

I find many times, because of the lack of training, some do not have the ability to do what is right, for they are brought up with believing a lie, they became addicted to things that damaged them. So since they were not trained at home, or at school, they are forced to obey while in jail.

Disobedience then becomes the problem, and what we need to understand is obeying the simplest of rules, and we become blessed, and everyone around us becomes blessed.

New World Moral Government

New World Moral Government

Here we are celebrating Easter 2006 and seeing more unrest throughout the world than anytime in my life. Jesus did not come to rule this world; He came to give us peace as we follow Him, in this New World Moral Government. He wants to rule the hearts of man as we become a part of the Kingdom of God. Let’s worship Him, honor Him, and obey Him, love and adore Him, as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. He came to give us life abundantly, that we might be blessed and not cursed. He came as a baby conceived of the Holy Spirit in a women called Mary, and grew up to minister to 12 disciples, who in turn ministered to others about what they had experienced.

This man Jesus became a threat to the Romans, for they felt He was going to take away their rule. Jesus did not come to rule nations; he came to rule the hearts of men and women who accept His form of law. This could not be understood by the rulers of His day, they sought to kill Him.

Holiness

Holiness

Christianity today wrote about two week ago how that 10 denominational leaders have been studying the last three years,  what is going on in our Churches, that we need to be concerned with and they came up with a Holiness Manifesto.

These included both Pentecostal and non-Pentecostal branches of the movement, as well as black and white denominations. The participating denominations are the Salvation Army, Church of the Nazarene, Free Methodist Church, Brethren in Christ, International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, International Pentecostal Holiness, Church of God (Anderson, Indiana), Church of God in Christ, Shield of Faith, and the Christian & Missionary Alliance.

“The Holiness Manifesto says that "holy people are not legalistic or judgmental. They do not pursue an exclusive private state of being better than others. Holiness is not flawlessness but the fulfillment of God's intention for us."

The document says that holiness is not "an exclusive private state of being" and frames holiness as neighbor love. It uses "covenant" language. There's a more communal understanding of holiness in this statement, that holiness is not just about us as individuals but about individuals belonging to a covenant people.”

Representatives from 10 different denominations came together and the question asked them was. How often do official representatives of those groups get together for a common purpose?
It hasn't happened before.

“This is a historic first?”
”It is. This excites me as I look back in church history. The Holiness movement gave rise to these churches and then came the Azusa Street Revival. But these commonly founded groups wound up in a three-way split. We had the Pentecostals and then the Silents, the ones who weren't loud or noisy. And then you had a split between the blacks and the whites. And I don't know of any time since then that those three categories of people have come together in a common project—especially around this message—until this moment. And so, we've got the Pentecostal stream (the Foursquare and the Shield of Faith and International Pentecostal Holiness), and we've got the Silents (the Nazarenes, the Wesleyans, Free Methodists, Brethren in Christ). We've got the black church (the Shield of Faith and the Church of God in Christ) and the whites. And so it's very exciting. Even if it may only be a small start, it signals that God wants us together around something that transcends our divisions and that his holiness is a unifying, convening place.”
