What Happens When We Fail

From Quora, from the group Loving and Amazing World

Richard Strachan · I want to show the good and beautiful that is in our world 

This is the final photograph of Phillip Herron 34, crying in his car, literally minutes before he took his own life.

He was a single Dad of three young children, struggling with escalating debt of over $20,000 and was desperately waiting for a Payday lending payment he’d applied for. But it’s paid in arrears, with a 5 week wait time. That wait drove him even deeper into debt, and when he died he had $4.61 in his bank account and clearly couldn’t see any other way out.

Like a lot of people, especially men, he kept all of this to himself, nobody else knew how bad things were getting. The poor man even had to tell his children that Father Xmas wouldn’t come this year, and in his suicide note he wrote that they’d be better off if he wasn’t there any more.

And now he isn’t.

We need to talk more. We need to be kinder. And we need to be a country that helps people when they need it the most. #ImHere

RIP ❤️

When Christians fail, Satan wins.

When we are cut off from each other – without Christian community – Satan wins.

When we don’t care about the poor, or the weak, or the elderly, because “the government till take care of it”, Satan wins.

When the wicked triumph because good men won’t risk death imprisonment losing their job (!!) to fight lawlessness and truth-twisters, Satan wins.

When no one will challenge Our Betters when they insist that we Live By Lies, Satan wins.

This world belongs to God. Not Satan, and not his slithering servants – regardless of their political and social positions. And regardless of their wealth, political power, and/or media/academic dominance.

Jesus Christ is king of the world today, Not the serpentine squatter, liar, murderer.

Satan’s string of victories must become fewer and fewer.

Which means, God’s victories must grow and grow.

Jesus has already won the greatest of victories, the tide has already turned.

We, the servants of Christ, must push His victory forward. And so save more and more lives.

Not just by prayer, which is necessary but not sufficient.

Prayer and action, in time and on earth, is rightfully demanded by our King.
