We Reap What We Sow
[COMMENT: This pretty much speaks for itself. Anthropologists who
dig up our remains some centuries hence will surely conclude that the 20th
century was the most dismal and misguided century of all time, a second Dark
Age, with no excuses, just lots of pseudo-rational rationalizations.
A decade before these events below had even happened, we had already produced
the most massively brutal and deadly century in history, having by the 1950's
already killed a greater percentage of the human population than any other
century. The roots of this disaster go back to the failure of
Christians to (among other things) clarify the Biblical roots of our
Constitution. We then proceeded to lose the whole rest of the public arena
-- politics, science, education, entertainment, the media. And now even
creches in the public square.
We can retake Western Civ., but it will get harder and harder as time goes on
unless we go on the offensive very soon. It will cost our children and
grand children much more than it will cost is today.
I received this email passed on by a Jewish conservative. E. Fox]
Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson
asked her "How could God let something like this happen?" (regarding the
attacks on Sept. 11).
Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, "I
believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've
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 backed out. How can we
expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us
In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think
it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found
recently) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, 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 neighbor as yourself.
And we said OK.
Then Dr. Benjamin 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 (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an
expert should know what he's talking about. 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.
Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire
but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice
