Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said at a press conference that there appears to have been information about a possible attack prior to the series of deadly attacks on Sunday.

The prime minister said he was not kept informed about the information and that it is one of the issues that must be looked into. 

"For now the priority is to apprehend the attackers," he added.

A memo warning of an attack was circulated in advance, police source says

From Journalist Sandun Arosha F'do in Colombo

Before the blasts on Sunday, a memo warned of a potential attack and requested heightened security, a police source tells CNN.

The memo was dated April 11 and was signed by Sri Lanka's deputy inspector general of police.

Sri Lankan Minister of Telecommunication Harin Fernando tweeted a picture of the memo on Sunday.

"Some intelligence officers were aware of this incidence. Therefore there was a delay in action. What my father heard was also from an intelligence officer. Serious action need to be taken as to why this warning was ignored. I was in Badulla last night," he wrote.

CNN obtained a copy of the memo. Here's what it says:

It looks like the forces of secularism ( I include the Far Right in that term) are on a full frontal assault against religions all across the board. Christchurch shootings, church burnings, synagogue shootings and yesterday's attack near a church in Baltimore sure do make it look like there's a concerted effort to make believers and heathen alike avoid their houses of worship for fear they won't survive a service.

Peace filled religions populated by followers who murder members of other religions. 

What a world. 

 

Just reiterates the notion that this is the tribulation foretold. IMO of course.
