News Of The World
Sunday sees the last edition of the News Of The World. Many are shocked by the speed of its closure after the ongoing phone hacking scandal. There was another Sunday that saw the heralding of a world news story which has forever changed the lives of millions. However this news story is over 2,000 years old and its importance missed by the majority of the human race...the resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ. He promised his followers that their sadness would be turned to joy and that joy is spreading throughout the world. Never before has anyone ever promised to die for our sins and promise all those who trust in him peace with God and a resurrection from the dead. Good news for the world indeed. It is unlikely that The News Of The World will ever be resurrected and its owner Rupert murdock is I'm sure sad to see the loss of a National Icon. Many others will be glad to see its demise as its exhaltation of slease and scandal has fueled generations to gossip and inuendo. The News of The World has caused the downfall of many a public figure but now it would seem is reaping in full measure all that it has sown. "He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword" Matthew 26:52.
