An outbreak of Christianity

Not taken well at Stand Firm.

"Where Charity and Love are - there is God".

What a loving and gracious thing to do in the circumstances - not to trumpet one's success, but to move towards reconciliation - being willing to sacrifice some of the advantage of 'being right'!

This looks like a gracious settlement in contrast with the spite evinced in the Lapin-cited link article.

An outbreak of Christianity indeed.

Standfirm should remember that the third man in a fight gets a game misconduct penalty. Besides, "In defeat malice" isn't exactly a Christian motto.

Thanks Lapin for pointing that out. Pretty amazing stuff.

Yes,abbey mouse, these 'outbreaks' are so encouraging, aren't they.

Hope for sinners like me.

Affected by having just read 'The Boy in the Stripped Pyjamas' by John Boyne and it left me spaced out, or affected.

Jesus must have been so trusting, putting his message into stories like that, and entrusting them to that lot !

The modern church seems to tend to disregard this message of his, in favour of their fetish of what they take, to have been him.
