ScienceDaily

There was a recent article in ScienceDaily: Latest Science News :Engineering a permanent solution to genetic diseases. Great, now sientists think they can cure our genetic
diseases! But look back on the failures—we still have problems in New Orleans because the engineers cured our problems with silt, yet Katrina almost wiped
out the city. For every cure, there seems to be a problem. In the same issue
the poor you have with you always” and “you can do good for them anytime you desire”. But the Great Society has failed to end poverty after 50 years. They also ran an article:Raises for elected representatives could lead to better representation.
Amazingly enough congress has been trying that idea out for the past 200 plus years and has yet to improve our laws. The same issue has:Brushing off the dust: New snail species found lying in a museum since the 19th century. What a snail has been crawling around in our museums all this time in front of many scientists

and we've just now seen it? Now I like NFL style football but:Altered brain development among former NFL players, study suggests. Yes, banging heads into one another does cause problems even with our modern helmets.

David and Saul

We as Americans do not like following the leadership particularly the political leaders of
the USA. We offer our opinions on everything they say and do and are ready to remove
them from office immediately when they do something we do not agree with. Particularly
we in the church of whom Jesus Christ is the head do we want to remove especially after.
a change. When the pastor of evangelical church has been in place for years and then
moves, then a new pastor is in place, things change because the new pastor emphasizes
new aspects. The congregants want to remove him and go back to the old pastors ways.
God, however, has different ideas. God wants to reach the community and when He
moves a pastor on is not the time to leave.

God chose Saul to be the first king of Israel. However, after he had been in office for
a short while God told Samuel to anoint David as the next king. Now David had all
the reason to think now he should be installed as king, however, God wanted him to
wait for a while. Even while Saul was chasing David down to kill him, David did not
rebel against him as king. This is our example in a church leadership change. We are
not to pickup and leave just because the old familiar leadership is out. God wants to
teach us new things. Our post is to pray for the leadership and support it as much as
we can. Our post is to believe God and follow, not to criticize that "he is not doing
the same (old) thing that the old pastor would have done", no, now is a new day and
God is doing a new thing.
