‘My God is a God of Mercy’: Christian pastor shares how his faith has helped spread peace
Posted August 10, 2018 06:17:23 Christian pastor and anti-abortion activist Jim Garlow shared a message of peace and forgiveness with a prayerful and humble congregation as he delivered his first sermon in more than a decade.
Mr Garlows speech was a reminder that Christianity has helped bring peace to the world.
“The Bible is not a book of lies,” he said.
“God is not just a book.
God is God.”
The Baptist pastor, who was the host of The Lad podcast for more than 15 years, said he used the book to tell his story of being a Christian father, grandfather, grandfather’s son, grandfather and grandfather’s grandson.
He said his family and community came together to hear the message.
“My God, I have a son, who has just turned 10 years old,” Mr Garrow said.
“I love him and I want him to be a good boy, a good man, a happy, good boy.”
“My God will not allow this to happen to him,” he added.
Mr Garlower said the Bible is “a book of God” and said he would use it to show the world that Christians can be compassionate and good people.
The Lad Bible, the online bible that has been used to spread the message, has a goal of raising $3 million over the next year.
