Mandate to Morals

Clear Fog

In the aftermath of the election folks, mostly demos, are saying, "what happened?" Amidst threats of supposedly thousands of lawyers ready to contest local and state election results, and the sepctre of thousands of "new" voters for Kerry, the nation voted in "W" for a second term. Now only was he voted in but the results were overwhelming on several fronts. The question being asked is, "Is this a mandate from the masses?"

I say "YES"! The major point of interest (on one side) or contention (the other side) was morals. It wasnt' the war, economy, education, medicine, medicare, social security; it was/is morals. In spite of what is presented as normal fare from the media and liberal left, the majority of the country still has morals.

When will the democrats realize that lies, deceit, attacks against people and institutions of faith, especailly Christians, and the the mocking of ideals of decency, manners, integrity and honesty will never put them into the seat of leadership.

Bottom line is that God is in control. He is not a republican nor a democrat, but He does honor His Word. He promises to vindicate the righteous whether they be an Elephant or a Donkey. No matter how folks try to change this country it WAS founded on Biblical, Christian Christian principles. Those that honor God will in turn be blessed and protected by Him. I don't believe in the saying that "God is on our side", but rather one is "on God's side".

It's ok to have different opinions, ideals and attitudes about politics, etc. But, when they vilolate GOD's Word, then they are in trouble and will come to no avail.

Values Worth Fighting For

Being an original "baby boomer" I am becoming more and more frustrated with the loss of values, morals and good old fashioned manners in the general populace of today. I don't mean to impose my values on any one but I certainly don't want anyone to push theirs on me either.

What some believe is right or wrong is obviously their right. Folks have the God-given right to make choices and decisions that they feel will best benefit them and theirs. The problem I have with that is some of the choices and decisions infringe on my rights and choices. There we have the problem.

An example: "If you don't like what is on TV, turn it off!" Good advice and I often follow it. But, what about those that don't turn it off and who copy the behavior and values that they see portrayed on the "tube"? Their behavior again infringes on my "space", etc. Then I have to deal with it one way or another.

So, how do we get along? Do we just hide out in our own caves; find those of like attitude and commune together, or do we try to adjust so as to not be offensive to folks and live as the Scriptures say by hot being a "stumbling block to others"?
