Love is what Finally Matters Most
Roy Glover, Tzaneen – We are heading for dangerous times and as I get near the end of what has been a wonderful life that has enabled me to travel extensively and meet a great variety of people, I have been giving serious thought to what I have learned over the past 85 years.
I have learnt that one cannot claim to be a Christian and true believer and follower of Christ if one practises gender, race, religious or colour prejudices.
In the past I have been guilty of all of them, but now realise the error of my ways and will do my best during the years that I remain on this wonderful planet to make up for my past sins and omissions.
Many of our priests do wonderful work under very difficult conditions.
I do, however, think our priests generally could do far more to guide us all along the right path rather than spend so much time on the historical aspects of religion and what some ancient prophet said.
They could make far more of the fact that the greatest gift our Lord gave us is the gift of true love, and tell us that if we want to be true Christians, we should practise that gift.
