If she’s lucky a judge will let her have option to marry him or go to jail.

I'm a little confused here. Are you saying that the rape victim should go to jail or marry the rapist?

Sarcasm doesn’t translate well. In these countries they actually may stone to death. If it goes to court judges will the women those ridiculous options.

Prayer requested for my nephew who got pulled into the gay culture years ago. A couple of days ago, we got a post where he thanked his friends for their support during his 2 weeks in the hospital. Whatever the cause was, he had a lot of muscle breakdown, but the doctors got his internal chemistry in balance.

Today we got a post from one of his friends who said he's a raging alcoholic, abuses drugs, is homeless and was picked up off the street while cutting himself. Just maybe that's what the cause for his hospitalization was. What a wonderful lifestyle he chose.

I happened to be in the church service when he walked forward for salvation at the age of 12. Lord, make it crystal clear to him that he's hit rock bottom and needs to turn back to you.

Sorry to hear that Bruce. At least the Roman empire was over 500 years old before the LGBTQ PEDO PAN INCEST POLY illness took over. We’re only 242 years old and about near reached the point he has to judge us collectively or apologize to Sodom and Gomorah.

Well, it finally happened. For years, I've been telling my wife that I was close to quitting WalMart (because they're squeezing out the non-WM brands). But it was something else that went over the line.

At the self-checkout, there was a huge monitor showing all the customers in that area. Well, that's not new. What caught my attention: every time a customer moved, a box appeared over that part of the body. In other words, there's no longer a couple of guys in a dark room, scanning multiple cameras for any suspicious activity. It's all computerized, and Big Brother focuses on movement and alerts security when parameters are exceeded.

An assistant manager admitted as much to me in a civil but unsatisfactory conversation. I told him I was a long-time honest customer who felt offended that they were actually showing us what they were doing. And that I'd never come back.

What a crappy world our culture has created.

For the first time in 30 years, the GOP grew a backbone. As a result, the Supreme Court tilts in a constitution-based direction, as it should. Perhaps judicially-accelerated culture rot has been stopped for now. But the fight is far from over.

It is about time.

I think the Democrats shot themselves in the foot with their disgusting smear attacks on Brett Kavanaugh. They pushed too hard & now the nation is pushing back. Polling is starting to show that. Democrats are losing ground to Republicans in many House & Senate races.

Keep talking Democrats, you are talking yourselves right out of your desperately hoped for blue wave. lol!

Lack of logical reasoning and rationality is a major symptom of, "Trump Derangement Syndrome". Cure is even more Trump for 6 more years will either cure them or eradicate them.

Some of them are starting to learn though. Have you heard the audio of them saying not to admit certain things so they can get elected? Been on the talk radio shows lately.

I seem to remember people threatening to move out the United States if Donald Trump was elected. I wish they would make good on their word and follow through on their promises.

So I'm sitting in the school superintendent's office this morning, after we've dealt with the umpteenth crisis (just this week), and I ask him if he's seen a particular Jack Nicholson movie. Jack is sitting in a circle with other people who have a variety of neurosis, and he asks the therapist, "What if this is as good as it gets?"

I then ranted that kids and parents are not the same as they were 20 years ago, or even 5. Too many of them are whiny, entitled or just plain beat up. I hate this culture and what it's done to them. As hard as we are working, and it gets harder every stinkin' year, "What if this is as good as it gets?"

Ready for the Rapture.

I often wonder about this, but without time travel it might be impossible to know. And even then, would we "get it" if we did observe youth in a bygone era?

The Bible says there's nothing new under the sun. Sin has been in the world since the beginning. Rebellion, disrespect, selfishness, hatred, laziness, etc. etc. I'm sure it [sin] has taken on different forms of appearance throughout time, but it has been here all along. If we were to be a fly on the wall in an early 20th century school, would we recognize comments students made as being disrespectful, or would it go over our head because we're unaccustomed to that culture (terms, expressions, etc.)?

Is it truly worse? In my opinion culture goes through waves just like the climate. Warming trends lead to cooling trends. I believe there were times when the culture was in fact more closely aligned with Biblical truth. I also believe there have been times that were even worse than what we're experiencing now.

What's my point? I believe that there has been a battle since the beginning of time. Sometimes the war rages hotter than other times, but it has always and will always be bad until the trumpets sound and Jesus splits the sky.

Feeling like the culture is on a steady decline since beginning to now can bring a feeling of frustration and even despair that we're losing ground. The war has always raged and will continue to do so. It may come with different terminology and styles, but it's still the same root.

Recognize the father of lies and call him out as such. The Prince of Peace is still on the throne and this war will be won. Don't lose heart my friend!

Great video Mark!! Thank you for sharing that. I do agree that what was said hits a lot of the nail on the head. I see things even in my own home that are exactly what he was saying. Things that have caused me frustration that I recognized as somehow being related to electronics, but not being able to totally understand that "why" of it. He did a great job of that.

I was talking about this to one of the backpacking guys last night at dinner at his house. He said he noticed his youngest son would get mean and aggravating people after he played a bunch of electronic games. He told him about it and the young man got angry and yet he said when I take him out away from all this electronic stuff he is the best. So we know it affects them in many ways it's a good thing to have them unplug set some rules up and say its an addiction. It's affecting you socially so we can help fix this by just putting it away. There will be some friction from it. Yet we know it will be for the good.

Yes, sin has been around almost from day one. And in God's eyes, sin is sin. To him, one sin is no less or no more abhorrent than any another. At different times throughout history, God's chosen and redeemed have occasionally strayed away and paid a price for their rebellion.

I've been around for awhile and my own eyes have seen what the culture has become and what it has done. I have something to compare it to. Younger people don't see the difference, because it's always been that way for them. They've been desensitized to the culture, much like gamers and their violent video pasttimes.

Our culture has fallen so far, and so fast, that's what scares me. What will God allow to happen in order to get our attention? Churches were full on 9-12. Not so much today. There's a denomination up in Canada that was about to hold a trial to deal with a pastor-ette who announced that she was now an atheist and wanted to keep her church and flock. A couple of days before the trial, the controlling authority said "Whatever. She can still lead that church." God will not be mocked.

The Catholic Church is facing its biggest crisis since the Reformation...The culture is what it is....Far-left liberals are on the rise....The media and the courts are working to marginalize and then destroy Christianity....Islam has over one billion adherents and is taking over Europe....American demographics are on the verge of being impossible for conservatives to overcome....and Trump will be the last GOP president.

The perfect storm is on the radar, and when it hits, there won't be much left. I envision another "Dark Ages". And just like the last one, it will be outposts of faithful Christians who keep the lights of civilization on.

My pastor is "woke" to the culture. He asked me and a buddy to team-teach a new Wednesday class at church. Basically, we'll take topics from the headlines and teach the biblical response.

Sounds like a good thing. I think too often Christians "know" something is wrong, but might not know how to accurately explain why it's contrary to scripture. Of course there are probably many that don't even know that it's wrong too...

Early in the week one of our church members posted on Facebook they are telling us to take down the Cross in the middle of all the Christmas Decorations and light show.  

Church Rallied.  Talked to the Mayors office.  Went on social media and the cross stays.  Just because someone is offended does not mean it has to come down as long as it's put in the middle of a whole lot of other decorations.  When it is placed by itself then that is cause.  However The Cross stays for now.  

Mayor was reminded by two previous Mayors that he couldn't do that on a whim...it takes a council vote.  


So often we laydown as Christians.  Simply put the devil does stuff we know is wrong and we just roll over and look the other way.  This week this community did not do that.  I am proud of our community.  

Culture driven people to me are like people that are driven by the wind.  They always end up places they don't want to go. All the while missing the mark of where they are supposed to be at.  


We have a guideline. It's called the Bible God's Holy Word.  If it says something and we think we can do it better or not live up to it...well that wind of culture is about to blow again.

"An offended brother is more unyielding than a fortified city..." Proverbs 18:19

The culture has done much to ingrain entitlement into the psyche of young people. To the point that they are offended at anything that is outside their personal and very small box. Universities do much to reinforce it, to the detriment of our nation. Inclusiveness, tolerance and diversity? They use these words like weapons to get everyone to line up and obey.

Yes, we need to resist. Even Christians. I read a powerful letter this week from a pastor in China who is imprisoned. Without resistance, we could end up like his country.

I take no joy in the misery of another. Scouts USA (formerly known as Boy Scouts) is on the verge of bankruptcy and has hired a law firm to pave the way. How quickly a once universally respected institution has fallen. Only 5 years since they opened the door to openly gay boys, followed by gay scoutmasters, transgenders and then girls. But there was no stopping the bleeding. They compromised their core values and betrayed their constituency.

It's a sad reminder and lesson to the rest of us. In Galatians, Paul wrote, "I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a new gospel..." When making a decision to win the approval of human beings or of God, it should be easier than the guy who picked the wrong chalice in the Indiana Jones movie. "He chose poorly."

I expect that the 23,250 troops that landed on Utah Beach, the 34,250 that landed on Omaha Beach, and the 15,500 Paratroopers that jumped into the darkness on June 6 were "offended" by the German mortars, artillery, and machinegun bullets, but they didn't cower in their "safe space".
