Brave Enough to go Forward???

Have you ever wondered why you were born to live today–in this moment, at the place you inhabit, with the circumstances you have? Is it an accident you are here, or were you born for this time and place?

It is no accident. There is a part each of us plays, and each part is important to the whole–God’s plan. Each of us has been given certain qualities to advance that plan.

How are we doing?

Maybe not so good.

Sometimes we ignore that we have a part in helping our world be the best it can be. Sometimes we are weak, or lazy, or without courage enough to stand strong against those things we know are wrong, and even participate in them ourselves.

Sometimes we don’t think for ourselves, but let the current political correctness cower us into corners meant to shape our thoughts. And sometimes, we are just plain scared to be labeled as intolerant, when intolerance is actually necessary to maintain a spiritual and moral code.

America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance-it is not. It is suffering from tolerance. Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos. Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broadminded. . . .  The refusal to take sides on great moral issues is itself a decision. It is a silent acquiescence to evil. The Tragedy of our time is that those who still believe in honesty lack fire and conviction, while those who believe in dishonesty are full of passionate conviction.
― Fulton J. Sheen

In an article in Crisis Magazine, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of The Ruth Institute, says this: “There can be no doubt: The sexual revolutionaries have infiltrated the churches. They are using the resources of Christianity to promote their views. The revolutionaries occupy the same buildings, wear the same vestments, and use the same labels. But they have invented a new religion, without ever admitting it. The sexual apostates, both Catholic and Protestant, are counting on no one noticing that their newly invented religion bears no relationship to historic Christianity.” http://www.crisismagazine.com/2017/nashville-statement-matters-catholics#.WcOmIDfQCCY.facebook  https://cbmw.org/nashville-statement/

Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?–The Book of Esther, 4:13-14

This is such a time, make no mistake. Your time and mine. Our world needs us now.
