denouncing the politics of hate
The politics of hate are wrong in Mosul, in Beirut, in
Brussels, in Paris, in Ankara, in Pakistan, in San
Bernardino--and they are also wrong in the public
discourse of the United States. People of faith
should denounce the politics of hate everywhere--
whether propagated by violent terrorists or by political
leaders or candidates of any political party.
We must deny the terrorists their victory by not

The timeline for these events took place approximately 464–434 BC. The purpose of the book is to testify to the secret watch and care that God has over His people no matter where they are. What we are to learn from the book is that God uses all people to serve Him in some way, but prepares His people to be witnesses and blessings to others. “For Mordecai the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed.” - Esther 10:3.
God uses many means to point people to His direction, judgment, sickness, hope, love, death, the list goes on and on, how He gets our... (more)
