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.

2019 – The Difficult Year

At the beginning of January, it is a tradition to try and forecast the events of the coming year. And, I’ve tried to do that, every year, with limited success. Timing is not my strength, as I have demonstrated over the past few years. Having said that, there aren’t many who have done any better. So, I’m in good company.

However, there is one thing that I can predict with a great deal of confidence:

2019 will be difficult.

My fear is that this will be a great understatement. I certainly hope that it will be smooth sailing with perfect sunsets and fields of green. But, don’t bet on it.

The Boiling Frog

Our fall from grace has happened so slowly that we must look at it in terms of decades and even centuries. What was outrageous in the ’90s, is commonplace today. And, what we did in the ’90s was only whispered about in the ’70s. Oh, and we never talked about THAT in the ’50s.

This slow creep of all things immoral has been happening so slowly that it’s hard to see it, unless some ‘half-alien’ points it out to us.

I’m that ‘half-alien’.

The problem is that there aren’t enough ‘half-aliens’ out there to make what we say remarkable enough to be believed.

Taiwan is Falling

For decades, Taiwan has been losing a struggle against the corruption flooding in from the United States and Europe. Abortion has become cheap and easy. American movies, music and pornography have become ubiquitous. Anything and everything American has been idolized in one form or another. Taiwanese parents have chosen careers over children. And, those same parents sent their kids to universities in the US and Europe. Those kids came back with leftist ideas that are now bearing an ugly fruit. We are seeing this fruit in a homosexual campaign to gain more and more acceptance in Taiwanese society. And, it’s … Click here to read the rest…

Why Must We Be Morons?

If you want a serious case of depression, read history. No, really. Nothing makes you despair about the future of humanity than a nice, strong dose of the past – which is a demonstration of just how evil and stupid we all are. And yes, I count myself as a member of the evil and stupid.

In fact, I wince at the foolishness in my own past, so don’t think that I’m not leveling the finger at myself. I’m just as much of a drooling idiot as anyone else. The only difference is that I can SEE that I’m a drooling idiot.
