GO READ "Silencing the Roar"

Great article. Tom Davis is one of my hero's for sure, read and see why..

...It reminds me of the words of 1 Peter 5:8: “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (TNIV). It’s interesting that the devil is described as a roaring lion. Have you ever seen lions hunt their prey? They lie in wait, silent. Any noise would set the prey running. Lions don’t roar when they hunt—they roar to keep other animals away. The only time a lion would roar before eating its prey is if their kill was certain.

The devil is roaring throughout Africa. His kill is certain. Why? Perhaps because we are not standing between the lion and its prey. To quote Mother Teresa: “When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.”

The devil mocks the Church ... roaring over the 50 million people he is devouring by way of AIDS. He gloats over the 143 million orphans and stands atop a mountain of 33,000 children each day who will die from preventable issues like malaria and malnutrition.

Satan knows that if the Church took poverty as seriously as we take abortion, we could wipe it out in a generation. The issue isn’t whether or not we can do it, but rather if we have the will to act.

...I just handed my pastor's wife a copy of red letters yesterday, it was weird, you would've thought that I handed her a dead bird. I wanted to immediately take it back and re-read it myself, but I thought that it would've been inappropriate to snatch it back.
