To Think On

Find two hours this weekend to watch the following. It's that important.

Ephesians 5: 6-17 "Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things Gods wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them. For you were once darkness, but not you are light in the Lord. Live as children of the light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible - and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said: 'Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.' Be very careful, then, how you live - not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is."

Also, read this article and fully consider the implications. The crisis extends beyond chaplains. Beyond pastors and ministers. Follow the implications of this and consider how it impacts "neutral" careers - accounting, banking, medicine, education, sales. I think you'll see there is no neutral ground - believers will either bow to the government or bow to God. The risk is great and our choice is limited.

  1. Found a few chunks of time yesterday and today and finished the AGENDA movie. Very alarming and disturbing and a lot to think about as we consider what to do...thanks for posting. I've shared it with several friends and family.
