WHO DO WE THINK WE ARE

As we look at our world today, we see change everywhere.  People have altered their opinions about religion.  They’ve given way to political correctness to the point of zero tolerance.  We’ve seen a change in the roles of men and women.  We’ve been exposed to a sexual revolution that tells us anything goes.  Our foods are pasteurized, loaded with steroids and additives and things we once thought were good for us are now labeled as causing harm to our bodies.  Still every day we hear of recalls of foods containing e-coli or salmonella poisoning.  The medical industry has become more of an industry than the original care givers who swore the Hippocratic oath, pledging to uphold ethical standards.  The right to life has become a joke and not a very funny one at that.  Babies are being destroyed while activists praise illegal entrance into our country.

Our young people in universities across the land, are learning all about Socialism as a possible alternative to democracy.  They’ve never seen the results of such a choice.  They never experienced the holocaust.  They don’t truly know about Fascism or Marxism.  Much of history has been written out of the reference books. The idea of helping others is a thing of the past.  Unfortunately the last couple generations have been pampered and spoiled by parents who want them to have a good self image, giving way to the All About Me concept.

History certainly does repeat itself.  We should learn from our past and adjust our knowledge to determine our future, but humanity thinks they can handle it.  Mankind has always put itself at the top of the food chain.  Each society thinks they’re better than another.  They brag about accomplishments and discoveries, but things change, yet there is really nothing new under the sun.

So what are we to do?  I read Proverbs 30, this morning as part of my Bible study.  In it is the reassurance that God never changes in spite of all the mistakes we make along the way.  Can you even imagine the omnipresence, omnipotence and omniscience of our God?  It’s described right here.

The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy: the man spake unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal,

The man declares, I am weary, O God;
    I am weary, O God, and worn out.
 Surely I am too stupid to be a man.
    I have not the understanding of a man.
 I have not learned wisdom,
    nor have I knowledge of the Holy One.
 Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
    Who has gathered the wind in his fists?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
    Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is his son’s name?
    Surely you know!

What a description!  “Gathered the wind in his fists,” “wrapped the waters in his garment.”  How great is that?  Our God is awesome.  He is alive and active in our lives and our world.  He hears us.  He communicates with us through His holy Word.  He loves us without end.  He provides for us.  He is our Redeemer, comforter and deliverer.  He knows our every need before we do.  He has a plan for each individual on the planet.  It’s time for us to return to the One who is consistent – who never changes – never fails and wants only the very best for us.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  2. Forty-eight years ago this coming March, I graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. I considered it a great privilege to receive a liberal education. I had just taken a course taught by a socialist professor and had written a paper on the “Economic Underdevelopment of the Agua Caliente Indians.” He gave me an A+. I had no idea what I was going to do with this liberal education until the last quarter of my Senior year until I did an internship with the City of Palm Springs. I had the pleasure to work with one of the preeminent City Managers and Finance Directors in their respective fields. I was hooked and immediately enrolled in the Master’s program for Public Administration. Long story short, it did not take long for me to learn that my liberal thinking was stinkin’ thinkin’ and I became a die-hard conservative with a tender heart for the underdog. Seems to fit better with my walk with the Lord.

    Unfortunately democracy is a stepping stone to socialism and Marxism. It’s been the subtle system of tyrants since the day of Lucifer deceiving 1/3 of the angels in heaven to dethrone God.

    We aren’t a democracy, this is just the problem. We’ve traded a Constitutional Republic for democracy and clearly we’re suffering because of it.

    Surely if satan deceived the angels in heaven, we’re subject as well. But Americans should have been diligent and had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

  5. I don’t know. This morning a young man volunteer walked with me to help me find my room (for an appointment I had) at our beautiful new VA medical center in Orlando, FL. He saw me, a silver haired 50 something woman as a human. He didn’t judge me for being straight or Christian, though he could have when I blessed him for volunteering. I picked up cues that he might have been gay. But, I didn’t judge him for that. The point is, he didn’t just direct me, he walked with me, just as Jesus would have done (to help me find my way).

    Those public schools of which you speak are socialized. A lot of older people that don’t have children pay taxes to support their operation. I’ve heard people grumble about that since I was a kid.

    I think we all need to take a step back and view the broader picture.

      You’re right about stepping back and looking at the broader picture. We’re all human and need someone much wiser todo that. My point is that we have One who never changes and will eventually judge all of us. I’m glad to hear your experience with the kind hearted soul who helped you,
