12-16-19 Stealing

My wife and I were buying shoes at Famous Footwear recently when a young man (early 20’s) walked right out the front door with two pair of shoes. The clerk said, “He just stole those.” I said, “Do you want me to chase him down?” She said, “No, I’m just glad he didn’t pull a gun.” She had been robbed before.

Most of us were taught the Judeo/Christian ethic that stealing is wrong. If we were ever caught stealing we would be required to apologize and make restitution. That’s not true anymore with the so-called “Woke” culture. They do not consider stealing wrong as long as it suits their agenda. Their motto is: “What’s yours is mine, and I’ll take it.”

Did you know that in some of our liberal cities petty theft is not even prosecuted? Squatters rights are, in effect, given to the poor and indigent. I’m sure if these people camped out in front of the posh homes of these liberal officials, they would do something about it. Giving the poor a right to steal is not the way to help them. It will only lead to chaos and violence.

The best way to help the poor and needy is through Christian ministries like Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago. They provide basics like food, clothing, and shelter. They also provide for spiritual needs by sharing the message of redemption through Christ, and offering Bible study and counseling services. Thousands have been helped since 1877. These life-changing stories can be heard on a radio drama called Unshackled, which airs on KREJ 101.7 FM at 9:30 AM and 7:30 PM M-F.

In truth, we are all thieves, stealing from God what He has given to us and requires from us. His love, mercy, and grace, however, call us to a new lifestyle: “Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give to him who has need.” (Eph. 4:28)

12-9-19 Time

Time is a curious thing. It consist of past, present, and future, but is always experienced in the present. As created beings we can perhaps conceive of eternity future, but not eternity past. Where did God come from? The answer is: God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) has always existed; He is eternal. That’s what makes the incarnation so amazing. Eternal God (the Son) enters time like all of us through conception and birth, bringing eternal life to all who believe (John 3:16).

Interestingly, the elites (those who think they’re smarter than God) tell us the earth is millions of years old, yet we only have decades before it’s all destroyed by man-made global warming. I think their numbers might be a little off. Recorded history only goes back about 5,000 years to the early Mesopotamian civilizations; beyond that is just speculation. The elites speculate from an evolutionary world view. Christians speculate from a Biblical world view.

Some find a six-day creation 6,000 to 10,000 years ago simply unbelievable. Well, no more unbelievable than molecule to man by mutation over millions of years. Since none of us were there in the beginning, allow me a little sanctified speculation. It could be that God spent many years (even light years) conceiving and planning His awesome creation and then produced in only six days to serve as a pattern for our week. Those in manufacturing know that the real work is in the planning and preparation. Once that’s done, you can turn out the product in relatively short order.

So, how long do we have, or how long does the earth have? Jesus said in Acts 1:7, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.” Do the math: a few short years here compared to eternity there. That’s why we are admonished to redeem the time and give heed to the one who said, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him that thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God.” (Revelation 21:6-7)

12-2-19 Chick-fil-A

I choked on my chicken sandwich when I heard that Chick-fil-A had dropped their support for the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. These ministries are considered hate groups by the politically correct left for simply believing what Christians have always believed about sexuality and marriage. They don’t hate anyone, but they do love the Truth that can set people free, and they’re sticking to it.

I’m guessing that this was a business decision. If Chick-fil-A can shed its Bible-believing image there would be more opportunities to expand into the liberal big city markets. Principles, sad to say, gave way to profits. How often have we seen solidly Christian institutions taken over by unbelievers and lose their witness.

In I Cor. 8, Christians had to decide whether or not it was right to eat meat that had been sacrificed to idols. Some said yes, and others said no. Is Chick-fil-A’s chicken now tainted, since they have sacrificed to the gods of political correctness and profit? I don’t know; you decide. As for me, I will put an extra dollar in the Salvation Army bucket and eat one less chicken sandwich. I like hamburgers better anyway.

More than reflecting poorly on the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, two excellent ministries, this decision reflects poorly on Chick-fil-A. They will soon discover that there’s no satisfying the godless left, and all they’ve done is offend the Christian faithful.

Judas Iscariot chose money over Christ, but wasn’t happy with his decision in the end.

11-25-19 Fake News

Where would we be without leakers and whistle-blowers? One could argue that it’s unethical to leak the content of private conversations; maybe so, but it sure is interesting. It exposes what people really think and what we suspected all along.

Case in point: ABC’s Amy Robach’s private comments about a Jeffrey Epstein story back in 2016. ABC spiked the story for two obvious reasons: Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton. Both men frequented Epstein’s establishments, where underage girls were always available. ABC did not want to offend the royal family and lose coverage, but even more important, they did not want to hurt Hillary Clinton’s chances to win the 2016 election. Who wants a sex-offender and enabler in the White House? I know we’ve fallen as a culture, but not that far.

We use the term “Fake News,” and sometimes it is true that a story is completely fabricated, but more often it’s just selective reporting. When over 90% of the mainstream media coverage of President Trump is negative, you know something’s wrong. Thank God for alternative media like Fox News, talk radio, and a few internet sites where we can hear the other side, the right side.

Trump’s phone call will pale compared to what Attorney General Bill Barr will eventually reveal about the corruption of former President Obama and his cronies at the highest levels of government, and they’ll have real, not fake, evidence. Have fun covering that, mainstream media. You’ll have to borrow some of Trump’s language, like unfair, political, bias, and witch hunt.

Walter Cronkite used to close his broadcast of the evening news with, “And that’s the way it is.” More properly, that’s the way they (the left) would like you to think it is. Sorry, but we’re not buying.
