The Common Ills Iraq snapshot
Tuesday, May 3, 2016. Chaos and violence continue, another US service
member is killed in Iraq -- but White House flack Josh Earnest says of
the fallen "he was prepared to deal with it," Bernie defeats Hillary in
Indiana, Ted Cruz drops out and more.
Starting with THE NEWSHOUR (PBS):
JUDY WOODRUFF: In the day’s other news: Islamic
State fighters killed a U.S. Navy SEAL in Northern Iraq. The ISIS attack
near the city of Mosul was the biggest in months by the militants. They
broke through Kurdish militia forces before being driven off. U.S.
officials said the SEAL was there in an advisory role.
JOSH EARNEST, White House Press Secretary: You had
an individual who wasn’t in a combat mission come under withering attack
from enemy forces. He was in a combat situation. He was prepared to
deal with it, but, unfortunately, under a complex attack, he was killed.

preacher314 be good to your family
Proverbs warns us: “Whoever brings ruin on their family
will inherit only wind…” It is foolish to think that one can
hurt their own family and not hurt themselves in the
process. Whether by Divine retribution or by way of
natural consequences, when we hurt those closest to
us we bring ruin upon ourselves. In the end, we gain

Message: 1 Chronicles: Serving God
Hello My Friend,
Serving God. There is perhaps no better position than serving God. You do not have to work in a church to serve God, anywhere, any activity, any job, every born again Christian represents God wherever they go. Which is why it is important that we present ourselves as such when we are out in the world. And believe me, people will notice Christ in you. “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” - Romans 12:1,2.
Any godly leader will make sure that before they leave the earth they have everything set up and prepared for the... (more)
