Daily Reading
« on: May 21, 2018, 08:12:45 AM »
Watched part of the news this morning, then my daily reading.  From the NIV Bible - Deuteronomy 32:5 and I quote --

   ----"They are corrupt and not his children; to their shame they are a warped and a crooked generation". -----
 
Maybe it time to wake up     ::realitycheck::
All Gave Some -- Some Gave All
                                           Humbled to be one of the 33 original members of the Coast Guard Honor Guard, started in 1962.

Great verse. The book of Romans addresses this "perverse generation" further:

Romans 1: 24-30

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power & of love and of calm, a well-balanced mind, discipline and self-control.

Amen.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson

And God said "Get woke!"  And sent Jesus, and those who believed in Him became woke!
