Outrageous Mercy

Wow… what outrage one can feel
believing a killer got away with a crime,
yet no one was outrageous over Barabbas
when they saw him commit the crime.
And placed beside him, an innocent Jesus.
No one was screaming for what was just.
Crucify Him! Crucify Him!
Is what they cried instead.
They let the guilty go free
to see the innocent dead.
Where is the outrage?
Where is the compassion?
Does anyone care?
Where is the passion?
In His death, that’s where.
Yet who seems to care?
God does, that’s who.
His justice is not through.
The only mercy is in Jesus Christ!
Turn to Him before you pay the price!

it’s not about me. It’s all about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I’m in my 40s, live in North Carolina, USA, and love the Lord more than anything. He is the Love of my Life.

“For us to believe your claim that this is a fringe position rather than mainstream we would have to see some significant pushback against the people making those statements No, you”re the one making the assertion that one person saying that stuff is mainstream, the onus is on you to prove your assertion. Cite some evidence that this is what a large number of people specifically believe vs. the usual media froth. Being outrageous sells. It”s no surprise media outlets are giving the mic to people saying outrageous things. But that”s not the same as a commonly held belief among the general population. Wrt your belief that the measure of truth is whether anyone is pushing back: again, this is a media issue. The media doesn”t go out of its way to publicise moderate calm people saying moderate calm things. There may very well be lots of people criticizing those statements, but we”re unlikely to hear about them to the same degree as the original outrage because moderation doesn”t sell, and the media business is first and foremost about profit, not the clear and objective representation of reality. Put another way: you can”t complain about how the media slanders the gun community and doesn”t report reality, and then turn around and cite that same media to support your argument that liberals saying outrageous things represent truth. http://viagraqlor.com/

    Tom, If you had genuinely paid attention to the “material” you would know it was written about Jesus and Barabas.
    I personally think you are spam, but do not know how to mark it so when on Ascerblog… yet!
    Praying you have a good day. God loves you!
