A MESSAGE TO THE CHURCH
Author: Andre Burton
Humanity is suffering from a drafty brain drain derived
western doctrine of hypocrisy. In our social, political, economical,
religious and judicial order as established here in the United States.
These institutions have not been right by God and they have not been
right by the under privileged. For we exist in societies of America
which perpetuate a life of deception and a false sense of democracy.
Society has become death as perceived throughout the communities among
under privileged people. Also among the youth of society who have
love at home or within themselves. Therefore they too are searching
Don't you realize this reality? We are the human family, which is
created with a life and divine spirit but have become like unto bones
among each other? Look at yourself and allow those in the church a
look at themselves. Then look at the youth in their ignorance as they
appear in society, it is apparent that they are in much need of divine
Your self-accusing spirit is calling you to get involved in creating a
better man or a better woman in this century and the coming millenium.
These endeavors should find us moving together toward the image and
likeness of God himself. We are existing in evolutionary times.
When we think about the church throughout history, it has always been
the place to gather and learn how to exercise the will of God.
Assisting in the advancement of the under privilege so that they too,
can find themselves evolving into their rightful places. Then we would
all be creating a more productive, harmonious society as human beings.
So many of you have not been true to the teachings of the scriptures.
Although it is not your fault, it is because you have been conditioned
to believe in God outside of your human nature. When in fact, the
you are seeking lie there within your divine consciousness.
A MESSAGE TO THE CHURCH
Not only is the urban community in need of your services, but it is
necessary to get involved in reaching and embracing the brothers
behind the walls that are incarcerated. I believe God is calling you,
the church, to go into the prisons and inspire these brothers toward
redeveloping themselves around the work of God. Meaning, everybody
one body recreating a social system of connectedness that will
motivate us toward a closer kinship. Also, being upright and
responsible according to our human resolution here in America and for
the good it will become for the under privilege.
Message for the church,
Let us live as examples
Let us as individual men and women show that we care
Let us make of ourselves what we desire in
the work of Christ himself in ourselves.
I am trying to do my part by writing this message to you. It is
important that you understand, that of all the greatest leaders and
men of God who have made a difference in the lives of youth were
workers of Christ coming from the church and out of the prison system.
I have learned that it is in these institutions where the human spirit
of God is most revitalized in man. For these institutions exist as
the womb of God's greatest workshops in the making of a better man or
destroying a broken man completely.
Let love be without hypocrisy and let us cling to what is good. Let
us be kindly affectionate to one another as brothers and sisters, born
of the human family in Christ. In honor of and in support of one
another not lacking in diligence, but fervent in spirit. Serving
where the calling of help is needed. Rejoicing in hope and patient
the face of tribulation. While continuing steadfastly in prayer,
distributing to the need of the Saints, given to hospitality.
This message to you as individuals or as a group is my outcry as a
victim of social injustice and for which I am in chains. I am in need
of your financial support to establish enough funds to achieve the
just legal representation in my struggle for justice and freedom.
To learn more about my present situation on California's
deathrow in San Quentin State prison, please contact:
Joanne Johnson at 510-769-0169
I need your financial support for God's purpose not for my own
personal needs in prison. In hopes that God will open a door for the
work he has given me to do in his name and that it may be made
manifest. I should be free to teach and speak God's will, as he uses
me for his purpose.
This message to the people of society in the Church: I look forward to
hearing from you and I ask that you not send any donations to me
personally. Contact Joanne Johnson in support of Andre Burton's legal
defense. I need your financial support I will appreciate all that
will help to make a difference and there isn't much time.
