Repent. Confess. Give your life to the one who matters the most: Christ.

Repent. Confess. Give your life to the one who matters the most: Christ.

This is the real message from Charleston. It is God's message to all that will hear and heed.

..........................

As Dylann Roof was arraigned in Charleston today, community members began to sing in support of the families inside speaking to the judge, and MSNBC reporter Thomas Roberts was so moved he could hardly report it.

Relatives of some of the people gunned down at a historic black church in Charleston faced the accused gunman in an emotionally wrenching court hearing Friday — and told him they forgive him.

"I would just like him to know that ... I forgive you, my family forgives you," Anthony Thompson said during a bond hearing for the suspect, Dylann Roof. Myra Thompson, 59, was one of nine people killed in the horrific attack at Emanuel African Episcopal Church on Wednesday.

"We would like you to take this opportunity to repent. Repent. Confess. Give your life to the one who matters the most: Christ. So that he can change it," Anthony Thompson told the accused gunman as he appeared via video link at jail.

While outside, in the streets, community members gathered together and began to sing. The scene was altogether too much for Roberts, who was visibly moved and at times unable to continue with his report.

Just six days after the deadly Charleston Church shooting at Mother Emanuel in downtown Charleston, protesters from out of town attempted to disturb the respectful scene at the church on Tuesday night. (June 23)

Those at the memorial responded to the group's protest, in a positive way.

Protesters showed up to the memorial with megaphones chanting "arm yourself or harm yourself," and "never forget, never forgive." They marched from Marion Square to Mother Emanuel and they interrupted people paying respects at the mass shooting site.

Memorial attendees said the protesters were disrespecting the church and cursing in front of the church. One person said, "they're very much going about it the wrong way, we had peace here in Charleston, everyone is coming together in love and unity... they need to leave our city."

Even younger people present at the Memorial said it's not necessary... "They gotta calm down because you supposed to forgive in the Bible but you not supposed to forget ok, remember that."

Someone added "they're gonna go home eventually because love beats anything."

When the protesters interrupted those at the Memorial paying their respects to the nine victims, the crowd started singing the protesters away. They began singing "We shall overcome" and the protesters eventually walked away from the church.

“And the Books Were Opened”

“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened... and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works... And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” —Revelation 20:11,12,15

God has a set of Books in which everything we say and do are recorded. In one Book, called the Book of Life, are recorded the names of every born-again believer. The Bible says anyone whose name is not found in the Book of Life will be cast into the Lake of Fire to be tormented forever. In other Books are recorded every sin which we've committed and also the good we've done. It is important to realize that no matter how much one's good works outweigh the bad, they will still be cast into the lake of Fire if their name isn't found written in the Lamb's Book of Life. This is why Jesus sternly warned in John 3:3, “Ye must be born again.”
