Like most mornings, I was out before daylight on Friday. Driving down the Interstate, I saw a bright light streak across the morning sky. The weather man had told us to watch for a meteor shower. Partly cloudy, with fog, black ice and intermittent meteor showers. At least I took solace knowing that it was probably not the North Korean satellite that is reportedly tumbling out of control.
I am awestruck by such sights. Not the North Koreans firing multi-staged rockets into space, but flaming pieces of stone originating from who knows where in a vast universe that men will never totally understand. Still, there are many who insist that our planet earth, by happenstance, ended up at precisely the right spot in the universe that would keep it from either burning to a crisp or become a dead chunk of ice.
There are scientists out there, some of them at American universities, who theorize that our universe might just be a computer simulation. Wonder what that does to the Darwin worshippers? Probably nothing. They willingly glom on to any theory. Problem is their scientific curiosity ends right at the point where one might wonder that if we are a simulation, who wrote the computer program? Oh. I know! I Know! Ancient aliens. Saw it on the History Channel. I think it was right after one of those programs debunking Biblical myths.
Flaming stars in the night sky always give me one of those peaceful feelings that I am unable to explain. I was still feeling that when I heard about the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. There are twenty new Angels in Heaven. Innocent babes, everyone, lovingly embraced by the One God and creator of the universe. May He wrap his arms around the grieving families and provide them with the peace that only He can provide.
In our country, known throughout this world as the largest Christian nation, for decades the Godless left has been at war with Christianity. Sadly, most Christians have remained passive. It always bubbles up at this time of year. All of the nattering is about the war on Christmas. I become nauseated at those, especially media types, who twist themselves into contorted messes trying to keep from saying the word Christmas. Stores will not use the word anywhere. Cashiers will not wish it to you for fear that the anti-Christmas cops will swoop down on them. But, if you wish it first it is usually met with a cheerful reply. Try it. We get all wrapped up in Christmas and lose sight of the fact that the war is on Christ and Christianity. You will notice that there are no attacks on Easter, because they successfully turned that into chocolate bunny day. No, this is about a war to remove Christianity from this country and completely destroy our cultural foundation.
I remember saying the Lord’s Prayer in school. No school child in America today, except for those attending private Christian Schools can say that. Unless they hid and did it silently.
But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” – Luke 18: 16-17 (NIV)
And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come! – Matthew 18:5-7 (NIV)
The war on Christianity began in earnest when the atheists managed to remove prayer from schools. Then not too many years after, men said that women could choose to kill their unborn children. Many, many millions have made the choice to commit that act.
I do not know who amongst my readers have strong Christian beliefs. Some do, I know. They are familiar with Romans 1. Please go read it and contemplate it.
When a young man is raised in a Godless society, given heavy doses of violent computer games in place of a Christian foundation and sees daily glorification of immorality on television, on the Internet from which he is never unplugged and in the movies he watches, it is no wonder that something like Newtown happens? It is not the guns. It is the moral breakdown of our society. There is only one way to fix it.
As the Bible promises, if we choose evil God will let us be consumed by it. If we turn back toward Him and choose good, he will keep evil from us.
