Happy are those

Today’s Gospel reading in church showed us the power of trusting in God and especially Matthew 5:11 tells us “Happy are you when people insult you and persecute you and tell all kinds of evil lies against you because you are my follower.”

I do go to church regularly and describe myself as Christian, and people tell all types of evil lies about me and that I suppose makes me fit to claim Christian persecution from those who persistently write evil lies about me. Even the judges are on their side and there is no point in trying to seek earthly justice for the evil lies because there is no law that is adequate today to deal with evil lies.

Before that we can read in Matthew 5:9 “Happy are those who work for peace because God will call them his children”. I suppose I am mainly interested in peace, the peace of mind the peace of truth and the peace of honesty.

    I did come across a comment by a reader who calls himself the faithfruitcake, http://faithfruitcake.blogspot.com/ who did not link it to this post but reproduced it on his blog. I take it John is not a Christian and wants to make it his business to mock Christians, knowing that Christians are very forgiving people. However many would think before they abuse Christians for their beliefs. http://faithfruitcake.blogspot.com/2011/10/kaschke-batty-old-bird.html. I do not know whether John has another religion or whether he is just having a direct sense of humour.
