OUR INNER

re

C MPASS

Frodo, Merry, Pippin and their Hobbit friends were very much like we Canadian Christians are in danger of becoming. Tolkien described them this way: “And there in that pleasant corner of the world they plied their well-ordered business of living, and they heeded less and less the world outside where dark things moved, until they came to think that peace and plenty were the rule in Middle-earth and the right of all sensible folk.”

Where EVERYONE Is Welcome!! SUNDAY SERVICE 10 AM November 17, 2013 MESSAGE Rev. Ted Boodle

We are in danger of forgetting that modern medicine is just that. Modern. For the vast majority of people who have ever lived incurable illness a premature, painful death was the norm. We’re in danger of thinking health; peace, prosperity and comfort are our rightful possessions. They are not.

WORSHIP Kathy Hibbs

The norm on earth is no more what we expect than what the Hobbits expected of Middle-earth. War, injustice and the dark, malevolent specter of evil are the norm. Our cosmetic, politically correct culture hides the face of evil yet evil lingers around the edges and at the core of life. The Hobbits got away with their sense of entitlement for awhile but reality always intrudes to jar us out of our delusional expectations and false dreams. The problem with mistaking our bubble of freedom and comfort is the threat to our false-based faith when trials tip us out of our easy chairs and into the jaws of real life. The Hobbits mistook their momentary peace for their final home, for the way things would always remain. Our comfort, peace, medications and pop-prosperity religion leave us exposed to inevitable disillusionment. Evil is ever raging on earth. The promises of God are real and reliable but only fully realized in heaven. Here we suffer. Here we wage war with evil. Don’t be fooled. Spiritual warfare is the norm.
