a friendly reminder

cb829a6cbc3721c9d726906f7ab5dcb2.jpg (650×650). Billy Graham is quoted as saying...'46% of the and attend with you every Sunday are NOT Christian."

Mainline Protestant churches are in steady decline, and rightfully so. It is a heavy indictment against evangelical leaders when the vast and overwhelming majority of evangelical church members openly support someone whose morals and actions are diametrically opposed to Jesus Christ.

Not only is such a degree of Biblical illiteracy simply stunning, the complete unawareness of who Jesus was and His basic message is beyond my comprehension. Even more damning is the fact that most evangelicals do not care about Trump’s racism, lying, greed and basic immorality.

Churches filled with members who openly support the exact opposite of all Jesus did and taught are no longer churches of Jesus Christ. Call them whatever you wish. They deserve to be closed, and the sooner the better.

lest we forget

This is an deeply dangerous and intensely ugly time in the history of our nation. It is not a time for business as usual, or waving your political party’s colors. All of us need to come to the defense of our nation and get to the bottom of these issues.

When the leader of the free world whores himself and pimps the United States to pay off  his outstanding loans, it is time to take action to restore a semblance of decency to our country and democracy. It is perfectly fine for the #BLOTUS to get in bed with Putin and his pals. But, he is selling, or has already sold our country to cover his debts.

Today is  Memorial Day, I, for one, remember the sacrifices of those that fought and gave their all to protect what the #BLOTUS is now giving to our enemies. It’s a disgrace. It’s dangerous. And it has to be stopped.

the wages of sin

I have blogged about the 7 deadly sins before. However, I felt the time was right for a gentle reminder.

These words of Gandhi are especially meaningful at this point in our country’s history. We are fully embracing and living out all 7 of these deadly sins, and there’s a terrible price to be paid.

The consequences for our nation are already being felt, and they will only get worse. We continue to create a dark future for ourselves and our children. And the price grows ever higher.

The wages of sin don’t go down…and there’s no defaulting on the payments.

as long as there is life…

We imagine that as soon as we are torn out of our habitual path all is over, but it is only the beginning of something new and good. As long as there is life, there is happiness. There is a great deal, a great deal before us."  — Leo Tolstoy (War and Peace):

The only constant in life is change. We’ve all heard that, but few of us have internalized it to the point where change is no longer threatening.

Embracing change rather than fearing it is the first step to understanding that our life is meant to be an adventure. Tolstoy has it absolutely correct. We need to live on the edge, always looking forward to the next opportunity to see and experience what is on the other side.

As long as we live we will be immersed in change. And that’s o.k. That’s as it should be. Accept it.

As Tolstoy reminds us, “As long as there is life, there is happiness.”  And that is the one thing that doesn’t change
