In that sermon the preacher told us of the example of one of the members of that church;
“John Doe was without a job for over six months not being able to provide for his family, when an opportunity for a good paying job lurked in his horizon. John was informed of the details of the job and told the job was his if he wanted it. John turned the job down and then he proceeded to inform his minister that the reason for his decision was because this technology job was about editing adult content. The minister was proud of John’s decision and instructed every listener in his sermon to stay away from evil.”
It is alarming to me to realize how our mentors are so confused!
1. Editing adult content is not evil.
2. God created evil to give us challenges for us to overcome.
3. Editing adult content may be challenging to keep your mind clean from the way that our Lord meant for us, but every challenge that we face in our life is an opportunity to makes us stronger. But when you are unemployed for so long, the right move would have been to take the job to bring money to your family and at same time to keep looking for another job that is more to your liking.
That is what I did when I came to this wonderful country of ours. I was making as much money as a doctor in my native country of Spain, but the first months in North America I took a job in a car wash at $1.65 per hour. Of course I kept on looking for jobs in the paper and at the first opportunity I landed a job in my profession.
Please do not be afraid of challenges and embark on the biggest challenge of all. ‘To find your Soul-Mate’, this wonderful person who will make wonders pave your way until the last day of your life.
It is that simple.
