My Personal Christian Blog

Thanks for sliding into my blog site. This blog bog is a spin-off from my website at Call me a Night Owl, as my full-time mission and hobby are jabbering from midnight until 8 a.m.ish with chatter bugs across the world. Hoot, hoot! Being a retired newspaper guy and a Curious George, I've written and assembled a whack of stuff that I hope you'll find interesting and thought-provoking. Check out the Stories bar on the right side, below, for all my articles - from my web site and this blog.

Our priorities are nuts

Are some of our laws absolutely nuts, or what?

A pregnant women in Florida may choose to have an abortionist terminate a life inside her any time of day.

Let a pregnant woman get nabbed using crack cocaine while pregnant and she can be charged with "child abuse."

There's more!

A school nurse in the same state cannot dispense an aspirin to a child without written permission from the parents.

But, a pregnant girl at the same school can get an abortion without notifying her parents.

Ever feel like tossing your hands in the air?

Absolute is truth fading fast.

What was considered absolute truth is taking a kick in the teeth by non-biblical relativism, which allows for the ridiculous notion that truth can shift.

What was considered non-negotiable truth yesterday is open for change today. Non-negotiable truth? No such thing anymore.

In 1991 the Barna Research Group reported that 67 percent of all adults said that there is no such thing as absolute truth.

In 1994, the figure climbed to 72 per cent.

In the same year, 62 per cent of those who called themselves born-again Christians said they doubted the existence of absolute truth.

Many religious leaders counted themselves among those who deny absolute truth.

In many denominations it is common to hear spiritual leaders speak of their own faith as tradition rather than belief. Pastors can be as open-minded as the rest of the culture.

Even though bearing the symbols of Christian ordination, many are more committed to the doctrines of relativism than to the doctrines of biblical faith.

This has led to the diabolical teaching that one religion is as good as the next, prompting many to lose their fear of God and discount the biblical truth that salvation is solely through Christ.
