Losing self-control leaves you as helpless as a city without a wall.
What is the difference between a wall and a bridge? That is the very public argument today between a candidate for the U.S. Presidency and the leader of one of the largest christian groups in the world. The candidate promises to build a wall to keep out illegal immigrants and the church leader says that is "unchristian." He says that we should build bridges not walls.
Don't forget that a bridge, any bridge enables you to cross a "wall" that was created by God. Rivers, deep valleys and other natural barriers cannot be crossed without a bridge. They are walls built by God Himself.
God built walls between men after the tower of Babel. God told his people to build a wall around Jerusalem. The truth is that Christians don't build bridges, they build walls to keep them from being swept up into the world around them and being invaded by Satan and his followers.
Now here is the thing that the Pope has gotten wrong! And I say that with fear and trembling. Christians don't build bridges, but rather Jesus Himself is the bridge and the only bridge from the world of sin to the God of Heaven! If you try to build a bridge other than Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the Cross, you are constructing a false way to Heaven!
You must build the wall and tell everyone about Jesus who is the Bridge!
"Lord Jesus, You are the only Way to cross over from death to Life. Any other bridge will lead to Eternal death. May You, Lord Jesus be praised forever. Amen."
