In light of
the many perversions and jokes we send along to one another for a laugh,
this is a little different:
This joke today
is not intended to be a joke, it's not intended to be funny, it's intended
to get you thinking.
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.
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 alone?"
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.
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.
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,

said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and they won't
even have to
parents. And we said OK.
Then some wise
school board member said, since boys will be boys and they're going to
do it anyway, let's give our sons all the condoms they want 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 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 the President, does in private as long as
I have a job and the economy is good.
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 we said OK, they're entitled to free speech.
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, so go right ahead.
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.
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."
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 about
lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace,
but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing?
