God must be deeply saddened by the way we have treated his creation.
For years, we have been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.

And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly but sadly backed out.

So, how can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection, if we demand He leaves us alone?”

I think it started when people complained,
they didn’t want prayer in our schools and public places.
And we said OK.

Then someone said, you better not read the Bible in school.
The Bible says “thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbour as yourself”.
And we said OK.

Then Dr. Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped, and we might damage their self-esteem.
We said, an expert should know what he’s talking about.
And we said OK.

Then someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave. The school administrators said no faculty member in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we don’t want any bad publicity, and we surely don’t want to be sued (there’s a big difference between disciplining, touching, beating, smacking,
humiliating, kicking, etc.).
And we said OK.

Then someone said, let’s let our daughters have abortions if they want, and
they won’t even have to tell their parents.
And we said OK.

Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and girls will be girls
they’re going to do it anyway, let’s give our sons & daughters all the condoms they want, so
they can have all the fun they desire, and we won’t have to tell their parents.
They can get them at school.
And we said OK.

Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn’t matter what we do in private,
as long as we do our jobs. Agreeing with them, we said it doesn’t matter to me what anyone, including our elected leaders, do in private as long as I have a job and the economy is good.
And we said OK.

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 OK.

And then someone else took that appreciation a step further and published pictures of nude children and then further again by making them available on the Internet and called it free speech.
And we said OK.

Then the entertainment industry said, let’s make TV shows and movies that promote profanity, violence, and illicit sex. Let’s record music that encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes.
And we said it’s just entertainment, it has no adverse effect, nobody takes it seriously anyway.
And we said OK.

Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and 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 “WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.”

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

And we said OK.
