Fire & Brimstone (2007, Copyright Matthew J. H. Trinder. All rights reserved)Where: Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church at 11:15am

Bible reading:

“1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; 2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. 5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judæa, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 6 And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey; 7 And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. 8 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. 9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. 10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: 11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 12 And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness. 13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.” (Mark 1:1-13 KJV)

Comments then:

  1. Second Sunday of Advent;
  2. arrived at 11:31am
  3. The gospel must be proclaimed to all. These are the good news that this is God’s will.
  4. I see myself as a born evil who has to take lots of medicine to be good. It’s hard not to feel [psychotic] even as I am in church. It’s like being born dirty, never dignified, never glorified.

Comments now:

  1. It’s interesting to hear that Jesus was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan (Mark 1:13 KJV) in a church that doesn’t preach fire-and-brimstone Christianity.
  2. Painting Fire & Brimstone on this post made by Matthew J. H. Trinder

    No se culpe por tener que tomar medicamentos para sentirse mejor, para poder trabajar, para poder ser padre de familia, para poder ser un buen ciudadano, lo malo seria dejar de tomar los medicamentos den forma irresponsable.
    Para poder dejar de tomar los medicamentos yo sugiero que vaya al psicólogo, el tratamiento es largo pero si se lo cubre su seguro, hágalo, “mejor es tarde que nunca”, llénese de paciencia y hágalo, la única forma de curarse es dando con el problema que origino el daño, el doctor le va a hacer entender que Ud. no tuvo la culpa, que era pequeño para defenderse, que lo que ya paso, ya paso, que eso no se puede remediar, que cada vez que lo recuerda, lo recrea (de volver a crear), que alimentando esos sentimientos de culpa lo único que hizo fue dañar su salud y que si sigue haciéndolo, se le va a seguir dañando su salud, solo el momento que entienda eso, lograra sacarse ese peso de encima, podrá perdonarse Ud. mismo y perdonar al o los culpables, de allí para adelante va a ver las cosas de otra forma, VA A RECUPERAR LA ALEGRÍA DE VIVIR” , En este momento así como esta,, se esta afectando a Ud. y a su familia, que culpa tiene su familia, rompa esa cadena, TODOS UDS. TIENEN DERECHO DE SER FELIZ.
    No debemos compararnos con nadie, pero cuantas personas habrán estado en la iglesia en peores condiciones que las suyas.
