Pornography Destroyed Us and is Killing YOU – Part 1

Pornography warps and twists the minds of everyone that it touches. It degrades relationships. It damages marriages. It ruins our ethics and morals. It unravels the bonds that bind our society together. And, the Internet has made the foulest kinds of pornography available to the whole world.

For free.

Worse, we have become so desensitized to the evil of pornography that it is no longer considered evil, filthy and shameful. Yes, shame. We’ve lost a sense of that. We don’t even know what it is, anymore.

In short, pornography destroyed us, and it’s killing you.

Willful Blindness – Redux

Our ability to deceive ourselves is so great, that it is almost beyond comprehension. It’s as if we decided that the looming disasters that we face, are too much trouble to think about – much less, talk about or even do anything to avoid.

To even attempt to warn the thundering herd of their insanity, is to risk bodily harm and even death. If you stand in the way, you will certainly be trampled. And, it seems to have everything to do with an observation by David Dunning and Justin Kruger.

The truly incompetent think that they are capable.

The truly capable worry that they are incompetent.

You see this everywhere, and it is an utterly amazing defect in our nature.

Patriotism vs. God

Can you be a Christian and a Patriot?

Before you answer that question, let me remind you that you cannot be a follower of Christ, if you love ANYTHING more than God. In fact, the best definition of idolatry is the love of something, more than God.

So, are you a patriot?

Of course, your answer might change a bit if that nation is truly following God. The problem is that there isn’t any nation today that follows God, so the issue is moot. And, I’m afraid that I haven’t dealt with this question as well as I should, in my own life.
