Some complain about the state of the world and why it is that God let it be this way. Well let us consider how often we have been telling God for years to stay out of our schools, government and our own lives. How can we expect God to give us blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?
In light of recent events (terrorists attacks, school shootings, etc.) I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (atheist) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school (the book that teaches thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbour as yourself), and we said OK. Then Dr. Benjamin Spock (whose son committed suicide) said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem … and we said OK.
Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell; how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says; how you can send jokes through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing; how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing? Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think, of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
