What’s right and what’s wrong? How do we know how we are supposed to act and what we are supposed to believe? The Bible warns us that as the years pass, good will be called evil and evil will be called good. Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5:20
For those who don’t believe in the Bible, things get even more confusing, because you are already following the laws of the Bible. Do not murder, do not steal, do not commit adultery, etc…originate in the Bible. If you have even the slightest feeling that these are wrong things then how can you pick and choose what laws from the Bible to follow and what laws from the Bible not to follow? If there is any part of the holy book that is true, why wouldn’t the whole book be true? And why could every person be able to pick and choose which parts he/she would choose to believe? If every person is able to choose whichever parts he/she wants to obey, what prevents someone from choosing that they don’t have to follow the 10 commandments; that it is okay to kill, steal and cheat…?
Our country was founded by God fearing men and women (yes, I am aware of the controversy trying to prove this not to be, but the documents speak for themselves). Our country’s roots are based on the Bible. While some would like to say that the Bible would change with the times, I would have to refer them to the paragraph above. How do we pick and choose what should last through the years and what should fall to the wayside. Are we all really willing to risk allowing people to choose evil and tell them they are making good choices? I do emphasize choices, because just as we guide a child down the right path, we still love that child, even when they do wrong. We still love children even if we disagree with them. People haven’t changed so much over time that they aren’t still people. We should love everyone and help them to have light and be light in the world. I think that some people equate love with agreement and it is far from the same. My heart breaks most for some people I disagree with the most!
I am not always eloquent in my writing, especially when I am trying to get points across..haha! But the following videos are amazing and I urge you to watch them. Whether or not you agree with them, or me, just give them a chance. I think they will at least stretch your mind regardless of what you believe. It is not hard for you to know that I believe in the Bible, that I believe our country needs to return to its roots, that I believe in Jesus as Savior! But watch these videos and make your own decisions. 🙂
