I am in a small town i the Jura area in Switzerland, named St Ursanne. They have appr. 900 inhabitans. I stay in the house of a retired Doctors couple. I have known them now for many years and it is always a great blessing to stay in their house. Many hundreds of years ago missionoaries from Ireland came to this town and with them the revival. It is known that they had 24hrs prayer and worship here for many years…today it is a very spiritual dead town. I was just in the Catholic Church and I was told that the new priest openly discourage people to read the Bible because they would not understand. They openly attack the activities done by the Church I work with, located in Porrentruy the capital of this region. How can things go so wrong?
Religion is a monster destroying the life in the spirit,life with Jesus. When someone loose the heartfaith, relationship with Jesus…the passion for His work and Word…they slip in to religion and soon they start to attack those that have kept the relationship.
I am preaching here this week and I love to see what The Holy Spirit is doing.
I ran 9 km this morning together with my friend Alain. Not bad for a grand father……
