I’m sitting in my new recliner (It’s an early Christmas present.) with carols softly playing, and hearing the sounds of my children happily playing while I read theology.

What’s not to be thankful for?

And,if my circumstances changed, God remains immutable in His gloriously holy goodness.

I must give thanks at all times and in all circumstances. Psalm 136;1Thessalonians 5:18

Why does Paul tell us to think on true, virtuous, and honorable things (Philippians 4:8)?

Because our thinking often leads to becoming.

Lot thought on the things of Sodom and became terribly compromised.

We can look on the glory of God in Christ as revealed in Scripture and become like Jesus (2Corinthians 3:18).

And if we meditate on the lowly, fleshly, and corrupt things, and indulge in envy and division, we will become envious, divisive, and corrupt people (See James 3:13-4:10.).

Thinking tend toward becoming.

There were those of us who stated that abandoning Biblical moral standards in order to legalize and normalize homosexuality would lead to pedophilia being normalized.

We were castigated as crazy and/or immoral.

We were told that the argument committed the slippery slope fallacy.

We were correct. We were not arguing fallaciously.

You cannot base morals upon an arbitrary standard and not expect mores to change.

Thus it is that we find that our soldiers have been told to do nothing about child rape in Afghanistan. 

Thus it is that those who disobeyed an immoral order to protect children from homosexual pdeophiles are being punished.

No, I’m not thankful to be proved correct.

It’s damning to us as a nation.
Update: It is reported that the Pentagram  Pentagon has issued a statement of denial that expresses disapproval of the pedophilic rapes, yet essentially says that nothing will be done about it.

Christians Standing For Their Rights

Posted: September 10, 2015 in Social
Tags: ,

It isn’t required that a Christian assert his rights in every situation.
It is a given, since Christians still have the capacity to sin, that Christians will sometimes assert their rights in a wrong spirit and tone.
These things will not change the fact that Christians can stand for their rights, and they have a Biblical example in the apostle Paul.  Acts 16:35-40 It is time that those who say that Christians are wrong to stand up for their rights see the truth: we can do so, and we have a Biblical example.
