“What’s Missing?”

All this rhetoric from “Conservative Media” is nothing but shouting    In a hurricane.  All their efforts are well-intended, but make very little impact.  Fox News, Newsmax, The Blaze, all the Forums, Huckabee, Hillsdale, Liberty and even the brilliance of Mark Levin and Victor Davis Hanson are missing the point. America has never truly lived up to the intent of our founder of freedom and today we are much closer to being “unGodly” than “Under God”. Missing?

An open Bible!

Phil Robertson is one voice “crying in the wilderness” with God’s Holy Word open in his lap.  The Bible is much more sacred than the United States Constitution,  The Bill of Rights or The Declaration of. independence.  All of the latter will pass away, but God’s Word will never Pass away!  We are conditioned into thinking that the preservation of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness is the most important,  but we are, as a nation, totally ignoring the real source of life, liberty and happiness!  We treasure our life on earth much more than the promise of eternal life in Heaven. We should be less concerned with what goes on in Washington than what goes on in our own life. We go to church to be entertained rather than worship. We pray for peace rather than piety. We sing pop tunes rather than sacred hymns. Everybody who is somebody is writing a book today.  Professing Christians spend more time reading words about living a better life than meditating over scripture-led Holy Spirit. We are simply wasting precious moments in futility focused on bettering this life than living in faith of an eternal life. We don’t need “world peace”, we need the Peace that passes understanding. We need to pray more for our neighbors than our nation.
As a Christian, we need not be ashamed of being saved.  We must  let our light shine for all to know by walking the walk and talking the talk.  Beginning each day in an open Bible is the key.

And that’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my little corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.
