The burning of the three churches in Louisiana last week was very concerning to me, but of more concern was the catholic churches non-response. How can a part of the body be attacked without the entire body being affected? How can we be silent, from within our 'sanctuaries', all the while claiming to be a part of His body? Maybe they aren't really a part of His body...or maybe we aren't...
The enemy isn't satisfied with attacking only a part of His body- he continues as we sit in silence (fear?, hate?) We see that with the burning across the pond.
