We were created for a purpose.  The purpose was to be in relationship with the God of the universe.  We were made in his image, we were given signs of his design ad presence,  and we were imprinted with aspects of his nature that would reveal his true nature to us.  But, as Paul describes man’s tendencies in Romans 1, we see that we are always susceptible to pulling away from God and attempting to do life on our own.

The pattern always spirals down the same way.  first men ignore God.  Next they replace God, then they abandon the very basic human principles that make them great and replace them with behaviors and thoughts that not only drive them from God, but it also draws them in to Chaos and ultimately their own demise.

Our nation is in the midst of that spiral.  We have purposely removed God from our Governance and our schools. We have approved every form of non traditional behavior ad condemned most traditional values.  We have abandoned traditional family norms and behaviors and replaced them wit non stop entertainment and addiction to every form of media.  The result is Chaos.

As his chosen, we are to be different.  We need to live in a way that brings order into our lives and our families.  We need to embrace the principle design God created and pass it to our kids–if we are successful, we will bring order into our lives–right in the midst of a chaotic world.

God Bless You

 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
