Week 10 Day 1
Finding God in the Mysteries of every day
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Have you ever actually felt the “fickle finger” of ridicule for your Christian faith? Have you ever turned down the radio at a stop light when you are blasting praise music through your car’s sound system? Have you ever thought seriously about a T-shirt’s Christian message before putting it on? Have you ever simply backed away from family or office discussions that seem to constantly move toward mocking and calling into question the Christian faith?
Today, various groups seem “hell-bent” (literally) on expunging any trace of Christian faith from the public forum. Most recently a group called The Military Religious Freedom Foundation swung it’s vicious public opinion threat and anti Christian scorn to coerce the Marine Corp in to preventing Air Force veteran and Christian from speaking to reservists on the topic of Leadership lessons from the Battle of Gettysburg. This little tidbit was buried deeply in the news feeds of conservative sources and totally absent from the rest of the gaggle of mangy morons who clam to be the “free press”. (If this is a little too opinionated for you I can only say, “Get over it.”)
The fact that bothers me the most about this story is that according to the report from the Fox News website, it took only sixty four minutes before the Marine Corps caved to the demands of this lunatic group.
Ashamed indeed. Help us Jesus.
