We are witnessing the texture and vitality of a new landscape of the mind.

We are watching the dislocation of morality and conscience from the societal moorings of historic Christianity.  In so many ways it is true that we have more and we have become less.

 

What are we to make of Charlottesville, simply another name on a long list of cities that will forever remind us of evil incarnated?

What are we to make of Iceland and its final solution to Down Syndrome?  Do we call it a societal selection process, eugenics or murder?  I wonder what special group is next?

What are we to make of Oregon's legal solution for state funded abortion for all legal and illegal residents of the state?

 

What is the Church to do in light of this reality?

What are we as Christians to do in light of this barbarity?

 

Are we simply to engage in passive acquiescence and become guilty of the crime of complicity?

 

As Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel reminds us; We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must - at that moment - become the center of the universe.

 

Regrettably, today there are many "centers of the universe."  You cannot be involved in everything but you can do something.  What "something" will you do today in your universe?

Remember the words of Bonhoeffer; The righteous man lives for the next generation.

 

Serving Him with you

Until He comes for us,

Why is it that "we don't learn from the past"? It's because we don't know the consequences of the daily struggles of so many from the past. Education is no longer education that teaches responsibility for it seems to be just a political struggle for the minds of mush ... the useful idiots.

We see the acts of a Stalin, Hitler, Mao, or those in the camp of Jim Jones in Jonestown, Guyana whose indoctrination led to an act of "revolutionary suicide," by drinking poisoned Kool-Aid punch in which 918 people died that day, 1/3rd of which were children who had no say. These "leaders" were the centers of their own "universe" and brought about by a self indulgent narcissism. We saw that with our own Obama as well, for self is the tipping point away from God and his universal plan for mankind. It is Satan's curse against mankind that has made us for his desires, and not Gods goodness, Mercy and Grace. Mankind is expendable to evil, for evil sees only hate, division, submission and conquest of our minds and flesh. The Spiritual War is ongoing daily ... if we only know of evil, and stand against it pushed by the media weapon against the history of God.

Great Post, Jim.  Thanks.

Hi Ed,

Trust you and Evelyn are well and living happily in your new home. Hope to see you one of these days.

Great post, Jim. I thought with a new president we'd begin a recovery but we continue to slide down the slippery slope. How to acquire a return to morality and civility? I thought an amending convention would be a good first step but now I'm thinking that something more catastrophic might be in order. Something to slap humanity upside the head to remind everyone of our purpose here. Maybe North Korea should do the unthinkable. Seems strange to even consider such a move.

 

President Trump is surrounded by reprobates. The GOP is every bit as bad as the DEM's!  It seems as though society does not know right from wrong, good from bad. Wisdom is knowing God's word, wisdom has turned to foolishness.

I've wondered about the DPRK doing the unthinkable to Congress. The state governments could sure do much better job of governing!

Can you hear the Silence???

That is a riveting photo, Pilgrim, proving that a picture is worth 1000 words. The few short words there tell the entire story.  Where are our churches. My church acts like politics is just a nuisance they don't want to be bothered with.

The people in the pews have become an audience?

I always enjoy the inspirational messages you post here each week.  It makes me think.  Thank you for doing that and thanks to AFA for giving you this forum to help us all wade through these treacherous waters.

THOUGHTS

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.

At present, most persons decide to act on whatever happens with their thoughts. But doing so puts them in competition with one of the creator's natural laws first identified by Richard Wetherill.

How?

The answer is not complicated. People must stop basing their behavior on their personal thinking. Instead they have to act on the creator's thoughts, here being described in the English language as rational, honest, and morally right.

No longer should people reason from their concepts of good and evil, right and wrong, likes and dislikes, or whatever else comes to mind. Instead, mankind must think the creator's thoughts. That enables them successfully to do what is rational, honest, and morally right.

That may seem incredible until understood. But, consider that it is the way that mankind can escape the death penalty everybody has been paying since the days that people were created.

Join the survivors who have stopped their personal thinking. They now base their behavior on the creator's guiding thoughts to act in a way that is rational, honest, and morally right.
