Still Can Be Shocked

December 14, 2011

I am almost 54 years old. I thought I was at the stage in my life where nothing in this world would shock me any more.

I was wrong.

When I read a story entitled “Girl Scouts’ admitting of boy draws backlash” posted by Baptist Press on Dec. 13, my mouth fell open. I discovered quickly that I can still be shocked by what is being allowed to happen in the nation in which I live. How can rational people allow things like this to occur.

Read the story for yourself. You will probably be shocked too, but in reality we should not be surprised by news such as this. And, what’s more it is our own fault. We (Christians) have allowed our nation to fall into such depravity because we have remained silent far too long. We are reaping what Christians have sown for the past 50 years.

May God forgive us.

Pray for our nation. I thought we couldn’t drift any further from God. I was wrong.

The one thing I do know for sure is that God is still in control. And, His Son, Jesus Christ is our only hope.
