RICHARD JENSEN, pastor of Hope Reformed Baptist Church, Medford, Long Island, NY and headmaster of Grace Christian Academy, Merrick, Long Island, NY, a ministry of Grace Reformed Baptist Church in Merrick, Long Island, NY, will address the theme: "THE CHRISTIAN'S SECRET WEAPON: OVERCOMING EVIL WITH GOOD". He will focus on Romans 12:14-21 as the basis for his theme:
"Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation. Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, 'VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,' says the Lord. 'BUT IF YOUR ENEMY IS HUNGRY, FEED HIM, AND IF HE IS THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK; FOR IN SO DOING YOU WILL HEAP BURNING COALS ON HIS HEAD.' Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
Pastor Jensen has also been a home school convention speaker and is the youngest individual appointed to the position of Homicide Detective in the history of Suffolk County, NY, prior to his retirement from the police department and to his full-time dedication to the pastorate and to Christian education.
