Pastor Larry Jones of Santa Fe Baptist Church in Lubbock, Texas has written a post about unholy alliances that are formed just to stop the preaching of the Gospel. Please take a moment to read his post and pray. Let’s remember those who suffer for the Gospel in the same way we would want others to remember us.
Mark 3:6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
The more I have read this verse the more I am astounded by it. It is the open blatant expression of religious conspiracy. A conspiracy in which sometime political enemies participated because they had the same goal: destroy Jesus. The saddest meetings in human history…
The Herodians were the political supporters of Herod the Great and his descendants. You know the ones… they killed all children below 2 years old just to rid the world of the baby Jesus. They were willing to do anything to keep political power. The Pharisees… you know them too, they were also willing to do anything to keep religious/political power.
In every country today there are those who, like them, will do anything to keep power. And the missionaries of Jesus are working in those countries.
