Christian Church of Perkins By Ralph Martin Sunday, our Minister, David Pock, brought a message "That You May Believe - Part I2" from John 7. The more Jesus taught and worked, the more his creditability came into question. The crowds were growing. Some were believers and called him a wonderful man. the Messiah. and a prophet. Some were hostile and called Jesus demon-possessed and a fraud. Others disqualified him as the Messiah because they had jumped to the wrong conclusion that Jesus had been bom in Nazareth - when actually he had only grown up there - instead of in Bethlehem as had been prophesied some 700 years before by the prophet Micah. Adding fuel to the fire were the Pharisees. These religious leaders had a great deal of power over the common people. They saw themselves an elite group that alone had the troth. They resisted the real math about Christ because it wasn't theirs to begin with. Jesus' message posed a real threat to their power. They hated him and many would refuse his gift of salvation - no matter what he said or did. Their efforts were not working in their favor. Their attempts to have the Temple guards arrest Jesus for causing a disturbance, or breaking some ceremonial law. had back- fired. The guards couldn't find one reason to do so. While they had listened to find evidence, they couldn't help heating the wonderful words he said. To make matters worse, one of their peers (Nicode- mus) had apparently became a secret believer of Jesus and was now speaking out for him. The Pharisees were losing ground. Their hypocrfical motives were being exposed and their pres- When You Need It... 24/7 StitMater Medical Center has a comprehensive emergency departmet staffed with physicians, nurses & technical support around the clock.

If you call yourself"Christian" make a" Godly" differ- ence in someone's life everyday. St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church By Fr. Ken Harder "This is the time of fulfillment, the kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe." You and I have heard these words before and as such, it is easy to pass over them without much thought. These words, however, tell us much, if we pay attention. A reality that we can ignore until our demise is imminent. is our eternal status, heaven or hell. It is much more comfortable to believe that we will go to heaven. Some will maintain that you can have certainty; that you will be in heaven if you just say that Jesus is Lord and Savior. That would be nice if that were all, but it fails to pass one test, REPENT! Heaven and hell are eternal states but we live in them to some degree now. The kingdom of God, heaven, is present even now. We say as much in mass when We sing the great hosanna with the angels and saints. Heaven is not so much a place of pleasure but a state of being. It is the state of being loved by God and loving him in return. Any pleasures associated with heaven flow from this. Hell is the opposite. It is a refusal to love God and thy neighbor; it is an ultimate state of selfishness. C.S. Lewis wrote an excellent book, The Great Divorce, which is about heaven and hell in these terms. I highly recommend this book. It is easy reading and insightful. Acknowledging the presence of the kingdom of God and having real belief in it requires a step in between, REPENT! Repentance is not punishing oneself as we may be inclined to think. Repentance means more than simply regret wrong actions; it is more fundamental. To regret wrong actions, a person must change the way they see things. Repent, therefore means that we must be open to change. Openness to change is a willingness to embrace truth itself. To seek truth is the highest of human endeavors, for in seeking truth, we learn to act on what is truly good. My friends, the kingdom of God is here and now. To see it, to be aware of it, you must repent. Open your minds and hearts more and more to this reality. If you are willing to do this, then this is truly the time of your fulfillment.
