Interests

By Steven Levy 


The following was written by Steven Levy and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.


My confession:


I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat...


Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we under-stand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are  wondering where these celebrities came from and where the  America we knew went to.


In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not  funny, it's intended to get you thinking.

In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings,  etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she  didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then  someone said you better not read the Bible in school... The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.


Then Dr. Steven Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our  children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about.. And we said okay..


Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it  doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and  themselves.


Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'


Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.  Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.


Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit. 

If not, then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

 


Journal History

History is Important

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their mistakes.
Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it.
Those who fail to learn from the mistakes of their predecessors are destined to repeat them.
Those who do not know history's mistakes are doomed to repeat them.
Remember 9 11 and Solidarity and learn from what is going on in the world today. Change is coming

Thanks to all my Visitors

I would like to thank all my visitors for stopping by.
I wish the list would show more than 5 because I often do not get a chance to see who has visited when I am not online. So thank you all and leave a message if you can so that I can know who was here and hopefully visit your site also.
