The Tide of Our Times
“LeadershipAs Diana West points out in The Death of the Grown Up, the most prominent cultural response is to try to be like the emerging generation in fashion, attitude, and level of maturity. But frankly-that’s creepy. It’s weird to see middle-aged women wearing belly-revealing shirts, senior citizens sporting nose rings, or forty-somethings mimicking teen jargon. It’s embarrassing to hear adults try to curry favor with the emerging generation by excusing its excesses or imitating its style. Not only is it embarrassing, but it rings hollow to a generation that craves authenticity and thus wants adults to be adults, not knock-off versions of themselves.”
[In one of the amazing twists of our post-modern world, Pravda, the old Russian news agency, formerly known for being the journalistic arm for Soviet Communist propaganda, has published a scientific-based article contradicting the popularly accepted Theory of Evolution.]:
“Millions of high school and college biology textbooks teach that research scientist Stanley Miller, in the 1950’s, showed how life could have arisen by chance. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Miller, in his famous experiment in 1953, showed that individual amino acids (the building blocks of life) could come into existence by chance. But, it’s not enough just to have amino acids. The various amino acids that make up life must link together in a precise sequence...If they’re not in the right sequence the protein molecules won’t work...
In the midst of arguments over evolution and intelligent design, it is amazing how many in society, including the very educated, believe that scientists had already created life in the laboratory. No such thing has ever happened.”
“According to George Barna, ‘Fewer than one twentieth of churched households ever worship God outside of a church service or have any type of regular Bible study or devotional time together during a typical week.’”
Holding Fast “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works; Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much more, as you see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:23-25).
