Pastor Raul Granillo: The Love Of Hate

on February 12, 2017 - 7:13am

Los Alamos  

Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs. Proverbs 10:12 (NIV).

I doubt that there are many people who argue with this Proverb. In general, we agree that hatred is bad and love is good. So why do we see so many acts of hatred, not just from terrorists or white supremacists, but from everyday people, including ourselves?

We see hatred while we drive, when we watch the news, when we go to a little league game; even in our churches and in our own homes. Why is it so difficult for us to escape hatred?

Editor’s note: Councilor Pete Sheehey delivered the following statement at Tuesday’s County Council work session in White Rock:

President Trump’s Jan. 27 Executive Order suspending visits or immigration to the US from seven Muslim-majority countries for three months, and stopping processing or entry of any refugees for four months, has caused tremendous controversy.

The courts will decide whether or not this order violates anyone’s rights to due process or equal protection under the US Constitution and law. I am compelled to speak on this today.

Pastor Granillo: Beginning And The End

He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people. Amen. (Rev. 22:20-21 NIV).
Those are the last two verse in the Holy Bible. They are out of a book that is very often a source of fear, confusion, and division. When read properly, these feelings are unfounded. The book of Revelation is not about a great battle, nor is it about weird happenings on earth.
