CHRIST IN THE WORLD

CHRISTIANS LIVING THE LIFE OF CHRIST to serve and not be served

KNOW THE WORLD WHERE YOU LIVE


The world according to Mother Teresa of Calcutta: o Man is an unreasonable, illogical and self-centered individual; it doesnt matter love him anyway. o If you achieved your goal, you will be belittled by false friends and real enemies; it doesnt matter, achieve them anyway. o The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow; it doesnt matter, do them anyway. o Honesty and sincerity make you vulnerable to dishonest and insincere people; it doesnt matter, be honest and sincere anyway. o What you have built for years will be destroyed in an instant; it doesnt matter, build anyway. o If you help people, they will resent you, they will refuse it; it doesnt matter, help them anyway. o Give the world your best and youll get kicked in the face; it doesnt matter, give the world your best all the more.

THE WORLD IS GOOD, BUT ....... ....Satan working on the free will of man, was able to get man, through the weakness of a woman to transgress against the very first Commandment and continues to lure man into sin, up to this day, to this very moment. AND SIN CAME INTO THE WORLD...... ....Sin is a violation of the Laws of God. The law is the Ten Commandments. When our Lord Jesus Christ built His Church, the Church promulgated six precepts which He raised the efficacy to the level of the Commandments.

THE HOLY TRINITY


OUR LORD GAVE US SOME INSIGHTS INTO THIS MYSTERY :
IN

GALILEE HE INSTRUCTED THE APOSTLES TO..baptize them in the Name of the Father and f the Son and of the Holy Spirit... (Matt 28:19) IN THE OLD TESTAMENT GOD REVEALED THIS MYSTERY AS TO ITS plurality when He said Let us make man in OUR image, to OUR likeness (Gen1:26) WE HOLD THAT GOD THE FATHER IS THE CREATOR; GOD THE SON IS THE REDEE-MER AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE SANCTIFIER- the work of one is the work of all, since they have the same divinity, equal glory and co-equal in majesty.
