The narrow road

Refresh My Soul is a blog created by Angela, an American Baptist, as a platform for her random thoughts. In this post, she blogs about her recent visit to Malta:

A land filled with beautiful cathedrals. There is a 98% Roman Catholic presence on the island. These churches are the most beautiful I have seen. Each township has one and they are the center of all city business. The problem is that most of them are so steeped in tradition that the building or statues they are dedicated to are more important than a personal relationship with Jesus Christ..

..This is an interesting picture of the roads. They really are this narrow everywhere. Very crazy compared to what I am used to. Plus they drive on the opposite side of the road. The bus drivers were the most scary. Man, I am praising God we made it. When you can light a cigarette, make change, print a ticket, and drive all at the same time on these narrow roads I think you have arrived! :) I kept thinking of the Scripture Narrow is the road that leads to life and Wide is the road that leads to destruction. Help these precious people find the narrow road Lord..

..Here is a beautiful shot of the bay. Also somewhere over there is a movie studio. They filmed Count of Monti Cristo and Gladiator among others here. It is so beautiful. The whole island. Love the rich history and people. They really are hospitable like the Bible described in the days of Paul's stay...

Oh, no......dear Robert save us from these American do-gooders. They look at Malta as their little niche for aspired heaven. Perhaps you may want to refer them to Richard Dawkins....

I agree. They are not normal people.

Wow! Thanks for featuring my blog on this site. What a blessing.

I came away from the beautiful island with a great love for Malta and the Maltese people. My perspective is from a heart of love. I would never consider myself a do-gooder as the commenter said, just a fellow human in this world doing just a little part to make it a better place.

I apologize if this seemed offensive. That was not the case.
Blessings,
Angela

Angela,
You truly have a heart for God's people!
One day, we ALL will bow at the feet of Jesus - and I know He will say to you, "Well done, good and faithful servant".
I'll continue to pray with you for the people of Malta. Because, let's face it, we all need prayer.
