Cuban president Raul Castro recently visited Pope Francis at the Vatican. Castro had praise for the pope, with whom he met privately for about an hour. Castro later promised a warm welcome for Francis when he comes to Cuba for a visit in September. “I promise to go to all his Masses”, Castro said, “…and if the pope continues this way, I will go back to praying and go back to the church. I’m not joking.”
Those seem like strange conditions, basing your willingness to pray and worship on the behavior of someone else!
Let everyone decide for themselves whether or not to pursue God. Someone else’s actions should not be a factor in this decision.
“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”—Joshua 24:15.
