In 1965, clergy joined the march on Selma for civil rights. Today, voices of faith are in the streets and on social media calling for justice in Ferguson.


  1. There will always be sick humans who form mobs for the purpose of control over the others around them.

    Gov is just the mob in charge currently.

  2. So while america falls apart, our gov is sending more troops and death machines to ukraine, syria, iraq and israel.

    And your kids will get bill. If they don’t like it and protest, see Ferguson as a response.

    Enjoy your freedom.

    • Lles,

      The ONLY “true” freedom from mob riots, hate, prejudice, racism, wars, and all other problems experienced by everyone, such as all sickness, disease, old age and death will soon be provided by God’s kingdom or heavenly government.

      As the apostle Paul brought out, “…For a certainty, I perceive that God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him.” (Acts 10:34). We should follow that same attitude and be impartial to our fellowman.

      God’s kingdom will rule over mankind on earth with righteousness, justice and love, qualities which are not exercised by the majority of people today (Isaiah 11:1-9), and put an end to all human rule under which the majority of people are suffering (Daniel 2:44).

      We are provided with this most encouraging news today:

      “And he (God) will certainly render judgment among many peoples, and set matters straight respecting mighty nations far away. And they will have to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. They will NOT lift up sword, nation against nation, neither will they learn war any more. And they will actually sit, each one under his fig tree, and there will be no one making them tremble, for the very mouth of Jehovah of armies has spoken it.” (Micah 4:3,4)

      All the wicked ones will be done away with by God, as he did in the days of Noah and Lot (Psalm 37:10,11)

      People of all nations, tribes, races and cultures will finally live with everlasting life and peace!! 😀

        • Lles,

          Yes indeed! It will definitely take place, and my strong faith and hope in those promises from God keep me going today! It’s so comforting and reassuring to me to know that “this life” is not all there is!!! That is why I love to share such good news with others! 😀

      • P.S. Michael Brown, the person who lost his life in this tragic event, has the hope of resurrection back to life on earth, to be reunited with family and friends (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29), through God’s kingdom.

    • It is the truth and is guaranteed to take place. Man thinking that he and his governments can solve ALL the problems on his own on earth IS delusional.

  3. GOD see all things and he shall judge accordingly. It is righteousness that shall exalt a nation. An America is for from it. God is sending his true Prophets because the time is at hand. People better get ready because judgment will start with the believer.

    • As the apostle Peter says at Acts 10:35:

      “… Now I truly understand that God is not partial, but in EVERY NATION the man who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.”

      The time left for all wicked ones to repent and turn their lives around is short (Psalms 37:10,11).

  4. God bless the family who lost their son in this tragic accident. But don’t make this a race bated issue. This isn’t about race. IT’s 2014 and we are still having wars and factions about RACE? REALLY? The officer was in fear for his life. The person targeted was in the wrong, though we can’t forget the pain his family is going through. This isn’t about race, it’s about a nation that is torn on all sides about what is best for AMERICANS. Yet here we are, in this late stage of our country, and with a half black President, and we still can’t get it right. There are some who look for every opportunity to inject a race bated hate filled agenda. Always playing the victim while they victimize each other. We see that the person killed, is seen on camera robbing a store, yet, here we go again, with those from e liberal right trying so ard to divide us..

    • That is why God’s kingdom or heavenly government will soon intervene in man’s affairs and put an end to all terrible conditions on our home, earth, including all corrupt governments and abuses of power (Daniel 2:44).

      That kingdom will rule over meek mankind in all nations with real justice, righteousness and love, no matter what race, nationality or culture (Isaiah 11:1-9).

      That kingdom will also put an end to hate, prejudice, selfishness, greed, wars, old age and even death (Revelation 21:1-4); something no man or his governments have the love or power to accomplish!!
      There will be complete brotherhood of man, with true love shown for all.

    • @Kari K,

      “The person targeted was in the wrong…”

      Evidence for this?
      Is the investigation completed?
      Evidence for ‘wrong’?
      Evidence for just cause?
      Evidence for pulling out a gun?
      Evidence for having to kill instead of wound ?
      Evidence for your claim?
      Evidence for your claim?

      Then why make the claim?
      Oh, right. You’re a Christian. No evidence is needed.

      Jump to conclusions.
