Thought For Today.

Some people go to the park and see only the rich green grass and timeless leafy trees, but I see the steaming dark excrement of frolicking dogs – or the equally revolting sight of people cleaning up after their canine companions.. Some see the 19th century rotunda now converted into a charming cafĂ©, and they smell the fresh coffee and cakes being served inside. But I see the ramshackle toilets at the far end of the playing field, and smell only the stench of unflushed urinals. Some enjoy the scenery, and the warm sun shining down upon their face, but a GAFCON man sees a creation which has turned its back upon the Creator god, and is reminded of the fires of hell into which this rebellious abomination will be condemned.

And while some see love, and shared experiences framed in a sensual embrace, the GAFCON Christian sees fornication, and sodomy, and the exchange of body fluids. It takes years of discipline to view the world in this way, and much dedicated study to recognize it as the message underlying all of Scriptures but that’s the burden which the men of GAFCON have been called to lay upon others’ shoulders.

I’m Father Christian and I teach the Bible.

Rev Dr., you are a true man of vision. What you see is through the Bible. If only we could all see the world as clearly as you do.

You see the blacknes, which is so hard to do in a world where colour is everywhere. The God of this world (satan) is craftily creative. He can dazzle us with all manner of beauties that are not ours to have.

Perhaps it is those dark glasses that allow you to see things as they really are.

Are they Armani?

Fr Christian, no one can accuse you of looking at the world through rose-colored glasses, since it's obvious that you wear dark glasses. They look like Gucci to me, Boaz. OCICBW.

No Madam, I take great pride in never looking at the world through rose-colored glasses.

Indeed, the only things which I view through glasses of such hue are myself, and my own righteosness. And, occassionaly, the Bible.
