My son found a crack pipe! As a property manager removing a wall in a rental home, he found numerous interesting items, including a lovely, hand-carved, marble, crack pipe. He brought it to me…”Perhaps Mom would want this?” It was two days later when I had time to check on the legality of possessing this item…hmmm…it’s illegal everywhere in the US! After snapping a quick photo, I threw it in the garbage.
Too many today are ignorant of important truths. Our President claims to have been unaware of many issues…too many to list here. Our Society refuses to acknowledge the dangers of Islam. Even many Christians claim to be unaware of the clear biblical directives for a God-honoring people.
Ignorance has been said to be “bliss”…but not these days!…not when Islamic terrorists set bombs in our streets…and when women deliver their offspring into the hands of murderers. Blissful, is not how I would describe Christians pretending that God is not horrified by our silence, acquiescence, and inaction!
Not long after God gave Ten Commands to His Special People, they formed a golden calf and called it Yahweh…praising it for saving and preserving them. The calf could not save them from God’s anger, which wiped out 3000 by the sword, and more by a plague to follow.
Americans have knowledge of God’s commands…we are not ignorant! Christ-followers especially, must walk in truth and lead others to understanding His way of true bliss!
“But the Lord said to Moses, ‘Whoever has sinned against me, I will blot out of my book…in the day when I visit, I will visit their sin upon them.’ Then the Lord sent a plague on the people…” (Exodus 32:33-35/ESV)
The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
