“In anger people do things they regret later on, say things they regret later on,” Deacon Lennox Toussaint told children. He explained King Herod’s anger and fear of a baby he thought was a competitor for his throne caused him to order all sons to be killed.
“He saw all as a threat; he did not know which [baby] was Jesus. He was angry and fearful; fear is man’s greatest enemy. We must replace fear with faith,” Deacon Toussaint said. The children Herod killed went straight to Heaven because they were martyrs for Jesus.
