Living A Transformed Life!

Boy don't we know how to blame our problems on our upbringing don't we? So , that's nothing new but to stay there is the problem ...All Bible readers know it all started in the first book of Genesis, telling us about the first fight in the first family between the first two brothers...And we all wrestle with the same issues because we're all from the same gene pool...In the first dysfunctional family Cain attacked and killed his brother Abel...And Cain's spirit is still around today...That's what makes us forget we all have the same blood in our veins and act on our competitive, jealous, angry impulses... Sometimes it masquerades as courtesy and co-operation, but underneath it's the same old "get him first" spirit...I said all that to say this, Michael Vick has paid his debt to society,and he should be allowed to pursue any profession he is qualified for or that does not violate the law.

It's true we're products of our past but we don't have to be prisoners of it!...I believe Vick should be given a second chance... From a spiritual standpoint, all he has to do is ask forgiveness, his sin is no more or less sinful than anyone else sin... From a social standpoint, he has served his sentence and paid his debt to society...This remains one of the most unjust aspects of our society that nearly all convicted felons are treated as social out casts for the rest of their lives, even if they pay their debt and live a transformed life.... Most people in that situation will be excluded from a decent job or a decent place to live for every... We set people like Vick up to become repeat offenders by treating them like nobody...I want to wish Michael Vick God's grace an power in breaking through this prejudice and just maybe God is going to use Vick in bringing a better future for other former felons...The good news is God will give us the desire and the power to live a transform life and HE'S THE GOD OF A SECOND CHANCE!

  1. Question:Now that Vick has earned his right to go back to society do you think he needs to earn the right to play in the NFL?
  2. Are do you think he should be able to just walk right back into the NFL?
