"JUSTICE AND MERCY HAVE KISSED!" Rom. 3:25-26 God is the most perfect blend of judgement and mercy! Luckily for you and me . . . Jesus said, "Blessed are the merciful, they shall receive mercy." Matthew 5:7 One does not have to worry about judgment as long as they are merciful toward others. That is merciful with M as in MERCY!

"Lots of chocolate for me to eat. Lots of coal makin' lots of heat. Warm face, warm hands, warm feet. Oh, wouldn't it be loverly?"
"Wouldn't it be loverly?" said Eliza Doolittle in the play, Pygmalion about a homeless and sassy cockney flower girl working in Covent Garden before she was transformed into a princess of English royalty by Henry Higgins and Colonel Pickering.
Well here are the pictures from our flowers for the homeless weekend at Holy Cross Church in Moorpark. May God bless all the flower farms in Carpinteria that gave buckets of blooms, all the volunteers making the bouquet vases, the pastor and all parishioners that helped and donated to the homeless served by the Servants of the Father of Mercy.

you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone
who has nothing to eat.
you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone
who's crying out to GOD for a companion.
before you complain about life - Think of someone who went
too early to heaven.
whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who
walks the same distance with their feet.
you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the
unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your
depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on
your face and think: you're alive and still around.

Has anyone ever heard of the Beatles' song, "Hate, Hate, Hate?"
Of course not! It's, "Love, Love, Love" you silly rabbit!
"But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love." (1 John 4:8)
"Anyone who hates is a murderer, and you know that a murderer, does not gain eternal life." (1 John 3:15)
"Whoever says 'I love God' but hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen." (1 John 4:20)

It is understood that there is a need to keep the Word of God pure in every age. The truth was first defended in the book of Acts and thereafter in the following 300 years after Christ, the Church battled Gnosticism, Zoroastrianism and Manicheism - all heresy.
However, the movie "The Submerging Church" (photo) is basically one man laundry listing name after name of pastors and Christians - passing judgment on them and in the end apparently he's asking us to believe that he is the only person that's got it right.
Possibly a little humility and taking the low road in the making of a highly negative and critical movie would do justice to God's love rather than judgment and condemnation. For this reason I only gave it one star at Amazon. It was a painfully long movie to watch.
Thankfully, it does inspire us to go out and be more loving of our Christian family of all faiths; to seek them out, especially the weak, homeless, poor, feed them, hug them and be grateful - let God do the judging.
"Do not speak against one another, brethren. He who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge of it. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?" (Cf. James 4:11-12)
Personally, I don't claim to have it right either. The only Truth I do know? God IS Love. (Cf. 1 John 4:8)
