Be Ye Ready


A fairly prominent American was interviewed on the Early Show recently and the interviewer asked, “How could God let something like this happen?” (In regards to the attacks on September 11) Click Here to see complete interview

An extremely profound and insightful response was given:

I believe God would be deeply saddened and grieved by this just as we are but for years we have been taking the basic teachings of the Ten Commandments of God(the one written by God's own finger not the one altered by manExodus 31:18out of our schools, out of the government and out of our livesand by doing so have forced these basic guidelines of love out of our lives. Please see Matthew 19:17 & Revelation 22:14.

How can we expect people to respect one another if they do not know why they should do so?

In the light of recent events…school shootings, terrorist attacks etc, I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered and her body found) complained she did not want prayer in our schools. And we said OKAY!

• Please see what the Bible says about this – Psalms 91:11-16. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in schools… And we said OKAY!

• Please see what the Bible says about this – Exodus 20:12-17. The Bible says thou shalt not steal; thou shalt not kill and love your neighbor as yourself.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we should not spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should certainly know what he is talking about. So we said OKAY!

There is a big difference between DICIPLINING – smacking and ABUSE - beating, kicking, thrashing, etc...). Then someone said principals and teachers better not discipline the children when they misbehave. The school administrators said no faculty member in the schools should touch a student when they misbehave because we surely don't want to be sued and we don't want any bad publicity. The Bible says: “Spare the rod and spoil the child. And we said OKAY!

• Please see what the Bible says – Proverbs 10:13; 13:24; 19:18; 22:6; 23:13-14 & 29:15.
Then someone said we should let our daughters have abortions if they want and they won't have to tell their parents unless they want to. And we said OKAY!

• Please see what the Bible says about this – 1 Corinthians 6:18-20.
Then some supposed wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and they are going to do it anyway, we should give our boys all the condoms they need so they can have all the fun they desire and we won't have to tell their parents they got them at school. And we said OKAY!

• Please see what the Bible says about this – 1 Corinthians 7:1-2, 9.

spare the rod Stop and think true love waits

Then some of our top elected officials said it does not matter what we do in private as long as we are doing our jobs. Agreeing with them, we said it does not matter to me what anyone, including the President, does in private as long as I have a job and the economy is going good. Then someone said let's print magazines with pictures of nude women and call it wholesome, down-to-earth appreciation for the beauty of the female body. And we said OKAY!

• Please see what the Bible says about this – 1 Thessalonians 4:3-6.

And then someone else took that appreciation a step further and published pictures of nude children and (then went even further again by) making them available on the Internet. And we said OKAY, they are entitled to free speech!

• Please see what the Bible says about this – Matthew 5:28

Then the entertainment industry said, let's make television shows and movies that promote violence, profanity and illicit sex. Let's record music that encourages drugs, rape, murder, suicide and occultish themes. We said it is just entertainment, it has no adverse effect, nobody takes it seriously anyway. So go right ahead!

• Please see what the Bible says about this – Galatians 5:19-21.

Now we are asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it does not bother them to kill their classmates, strangers and even themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out! I think it has a great deal to do with the fact that “WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.” – Be not deceived;

God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. - Galatians 6:7.
