As the residents of an Atlanta community has come into an uproar over the arrival of their newest resident, John Mark Karr (the man who admitted to the killing of the young girl in Boulder, Colorado), are the rest of the nation to assume that there are no Christians living in that area. Has Mr. Karr become such a stumbling block for the Christians in that area that they have chosen to be silent on the issue? Has Mr. Karr become such a stumbling block for the Christians in that area that they have also condemned him as an outcast? Has Mr. Karr become such a stumbling block for the Christians in that area that they do not recognize that he is in need of a savior just as we all are?
Where is the voice of the local church from that area that is waiting on the arrival of this man to take a step of faith to see if they could win this man for Christ?
Will the local church invite him in and show him the love that Christ has shown them, or will they close their door to him?
Will the Christian family living down the street from him invite him over to dinner to share with him the grace of Christ, or will they just peek at him with disgust from their closed shades.
It is true that the admission and affairs of Mr. Karr are very concerning, but as a Christian I am more concerned with the silence of the Christians from that community.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
