Introduction:The reasons are varied. Pride, no doubt, plays a part. (Doesn't it always?) People want to decide for themselves. Education is another, Americans who were publically educated have been taught, for the most part, that truth is relative; there are no absolutes. Then there's the media, in collusion with the powers that rule us. Nonetheless, the following are five things that I believe against the tide of popular thought, to be true.
There is a God, and there is only one, true God. Jesus Christ is Lord, God incarnate, the only son of the living God. "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'" John 14:6
Homosexuality is a sin, like any other, like pride, gluttony, abortion, stealing, and murder. If a person is born a homosexual, (debatable) he has not sinned until he has practiced homosexuality. If a person is born an alcoholic, he should not drink. Everyone has a cross to bear. We are all responsible for our choices before God.
Guns are a necessary means of self preservation against evil men. Guns are a great equalizer. They permit a frail 75 year old woman to defend herself against a young and healthy thug who broke into her home because he thought she'd be an easy mark. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Guns in the hands of the law abiding are used successfully to deter crime on average, every 13 seconds, a fact the news media does not report.
Abortion kills a human being that God created and intended to be born. When a woman has an abortion, she is committing murder. There is a gigantic shortage of babies to adopt in America. If a woman did not intend a pregnancy, the only moral, unselfish solution is for her to carry the child to term and give it up for adoption.
The public educational system almost exclusively promotes the liberal point of view, thereby proselytizing little children to be compliant with the powers that be. Academia at the college level will complete the process, producing, as Lew Rockwell so aptly put it, people who will assist those who would enslave them by willingly fastening the chains to their own feet.
Wanted to come back with another h5. I like the action you take with your great lists.
One great thought provoking list H5
Lew Rockwell is such an intelligent man. You are a very intelligent woman and I whole heartedly agree with your points made of this great list.
This list makes too much sense for some Americans to believe. Well thought out.
