Pastor Jeff Adams of Paramount Christian Church
Pastor Jeff Adams could be a force for good in this community, if only he lived by the example of his column in the NVN this week, where he wrote:
“We should break the cycle of negativity”
“Why do we focus so much on the negatives?…
The following are some Scriptures which may help you break the cycle of negativity & become more positive and encouraging…
– “Each of us should please his neighbor for his good, to build him up (Romans 15:2).”
– “Do not let unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen (Ephesians 4:29).”
– “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing (1 Thessalonians 5;11).”
– “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things (Philippians 4:8).”
For someone who utters and pens these words to continue to spout his negative views about our local School (RSE) and people he knows nothing about from first hand experience or investigation, these words ring hollow.
I have asked this man for over 5 years to sit down and meet with me so he can share his continued accusations face-to-face and to this day, he has not done so.
My offer still stands, Pastor Adams.
I invite you once again to “take the log out of your eye” and break the cycle of negativity & become more positive and encouraging, to learn about and please his neighbor for his good, to build him up for all of us are brothers (and sisters) living in this community!
Pastor Adams, YOU could be a force in educating yourself & sharing with ALL constituents here to unite everyone for the greater good of the community. Wouldn’t you prefer THAT to be your legacy, rather than the one your promulgate — divisiveness, fear & spreading rumors rather than facts?
