No one is irredeemable in the eyes of Jesus

THE EDITOR, Sir:

The Gleaner of May 24, 2016 published on its front page an interesting news story appropriately headlined 'Cokes turn to Christ' which stated in part that Ms 'Sandy' Coke and her brother, Christopher 'Dudus' Coke, have turned to the teachings of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

Extrapolating from the Gleaner news report, it is commendable that both Sandy Coke and her brother are now sincerely seeking to transform their lives by first turning to the Lord Jesus Christ for assistance, guidance and prayer and ultimately accepting him as their eternal Saviour.

As Christians, when we become baptised and accept the Lord, positive things will occur, and we will be daily guided by the Holy Spirit in our new Christian lives, and within this framework, I am happy that both Sandy and Dudus are willing to study and follow God's teachings and commit their lives to Him.

We Christians, and as a dedicated, devoted and loyal Roman Catholic member, I take comfort in the fact that both Sandy and Dudus are willing to study and follow His teachings. We should never disregard any human life or person, and no one is beyond redemption in the eyes of the Lord as anyone can positively change their lives.

RENEW AND TRANSFORM

Sometimes, here in Jamaica, we tend to write off persons for whatever reasons, and that mindset is wrong, corrupt, intrinsically misguided and flawed, totally contrary to the teachings of the Holy Bible. We need to have compassion on persons earnestly seeking to renew and transform their lives thus becoming productive, honest, hard-working and caring citizens of Jamaica. Without accepting the Lord, our lives will be meaningless, unhappy and miserable. I wish them God's precious blessings.
