Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

That Was Stupid

I think I almost completely reject what I wrote in my last post. Not sure where the balance can be found. All I know is that as a Christian, I cannot stand silently and allow things like human trafficking, child porn etc. to progress unchallenged.

Yes, we do get the world we deserve. Yes we do need to leave people to live the lives they want to live. But no, we live in a democracy and in a democracy people get to voice their opinion, hack away at ideas they think are bad for society and allow the chips to fall where they may.

I also think that homosexual marriage or common-law relationships while absolutely wrong from a Biblical perspective will not destroy what God meant for marriage because our society has already passed that point. Even in the Church, the next generation is profoundly ignorant of what constitutes a Biblical marriage. That battle is lost. Those who follow Jesus and His guidelines for their lives will reap the benefits of that obedience. Those who reject that advice will also reap what they sow.

Anyhow, the evolution of thought is sometimes a messy process and my last post was an example.
