From God's Story: One Race and One Blood

“One Race and One Blood”

OnePage…Acts 17:22-34

Acts 17:22-34 NASB
22 So Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I see that you are very religious in all respects. 23 For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore, what you worship in ignorance, I proclaim to you. 24 The God who made the world and everything that is in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made by hands; 25 nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; 26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might feel around for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His descendants.’ 29 Therefore, since we are the descendants of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by human skill and thought. 30 So having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now proclaiming to mankind that all people everywhere are to repent, 31 because He has set a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all people by raising Him from the dead.” 32 Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some began to scoff, but others said, “We shall hear from you again concerning this.” 33 So Paul went out from among them. 34 But some men joined him and believed, among whom also were Dionysius the Areopagite and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

What's Going On?

Bulling is the same as terrorism

Bullying is the original terrorism and has been going on since the garden.
I remember my very first experience with being bullied. We were living in Las Vegas because my father was stationed at Nellis Air Force base. Because my dad was only a second lieutenant we ( Mom and me) did not qualify to live on base housing so we lived in a nearby trailer park. I became friends with these boys who were brothers and the oldest one liked to scare me. There was this little club house and one day he put a real bullet on the door jam and said,"Don't move Steve cause if you do the sun is going to heat up the bullet and shoot you dead!" His mom called all her boys to dinner and I just sat there still as I could be. Finally realizing the sun had gone down I risked everything and ran out of the clubhouse. When I got home my mother had been worried sick over my long absence. Not sure she ever believed my story but it is true to the best of my recollection. You never seem to forget those times in your life when you were scared to death. Another time this same kid asked me if I wanted to meet the devil. He told me that the devil lived in this whole out in our desert. I was curious so I said,"Yes I do." He preceded to take me out in the desert to where there was this whole in the ground. Not sure if I chickened out but that also scared me to death. Finally we were having a rock fight and one of my rocks supposedly hit the brother who always bullied and terrorized me youngest brother. he was crying so we stopped the fight. Later that little guy died and I watched all the brothers take him in a big card board box and bury him in the desert. For the longest time i thought it was my rock that killed him but not long after I learned that he had really died of pneumonia.
