For the Record

I'd like to go on record with this statement: The biggest challenge we (the world community) face is disobedience to God's commandments, NOT climate change.

I was reading another blog about someone attending a conference in Maine where the guest speaker was some greenie superstar from England and I got to a line that said something about the greatest challenge facing this generation is climate change. WRONG!!!

Climate and weather have always changed, sometimes quickly, other times slowly. It is a dynamic force, ultimately controlled by God.

No, folks, disobedience to God's commandments, with immorality topping the list, is our greatest challenge. The acceptance of activities that were once anathema is proof enough.

Think for a moment about what your city (town, village, neighborhood) would be like if everyone obeyed the original Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:3-17). Life would be calm and peaceful. Our health would improve simply due to less stress! Then there are the blessings that would be poured out on us from a loving God as we honor and obey Him.

I believe that part of our earthly stewardship is to take good care of the earth, using resources wisely and not polluting. We will be held accountable for what we did during our time on earth. But I believe it is arrogant to think that puny humans and their actions control the weather or the climate.

A Different Kind of First Lady

I'd like to see a different kind of First Lady in the White House. 

Wouldn't it be refreshing to see a woman with a large family who practiced the principles of Provident Living. I'd like to see a wife and mother who lives within her means and shows an example of frugality with taxpayers money while in the People's House. I'd like to see a woman who teaches by word and example that the United States of America is a great nation with an eternal destiny to stand as a shining city on a hill. I'd like her to teach that knowing the Constitution and history of our founding is some of the most important knowledge you'll ever learn. I'd like her to be an example of graciousness and kindness, serving others in quiet ways without fanfare or media press conferences. I'd enjoy a woman who teaches virtue and morality, who explains the need for strong families in order to have a strong nation. It would be totally refreshing to have a First Lady who is more interested in what she can do for her country than in what she can get out of her country. I'd like a First Lady to promote Liberty and Individual Responsibility.

I'm rather tired of the First Nanny/Queen who currently occupies the White House.
