The Right Stuff

July 6

"obey ... in the LORD: for this is right."   Ephesians 6:1

"The attempt is to not merely blur the lines ... but to question their very existence."  

 

Absolutes are an increasingly preposterous thing to a world teeming with relativists ... and obedience is an equally awful concept to a race of rebels against GOD, and all that HE stands for.  Ours is indeed a day where evil is called good, and good is called evil!  The attempt is to not merely blur the lines between right and wrong, but to question their very existence.  The press is on to relegate "right" to the mind of a few twisted zealots down through history, not the least of which is JESUS of Nazareth.  "Right" is under siege in our schools, in our courts, in our government, on our streets, and most disconcerting of all, even in our churches. 

"If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"  The Word of the living GOD is not the last bastion of right, it is the only bastion of right!  "Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way."  Apart from the rock of DIVINE revelation, we are adrift in a sea of opinion where: "every man did that which was right in his own eyes."  You see, the truth is, right, and thus wrong, must exist mutually distinguishable, if life itself is to survive.  Were not "right" alive and victorious from the dawn to the present of human history; the Cain's, or Pharaoh's, Hitler's, or Hussein's, would have long ago carried the 'survival of the fittest' to its logical conclusion.     

"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only HE who now letteth will let, until HE be taken out of the way." 
The CHAMPION of right is the HOLY GHOST, WHO holds the restraining order from Heaven against wrong.  Soon though, HE, and we HIS Church, will leave for home, taking right with us; leaving wrong behind to run its damnable course. 

"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved:"


For Love of Country
Rutherford Birchard Hayes  (1822-1893)
(19th President of the United States)
"Looking for the guidance of that DIVINE Hand by which the destinies of nations and individuals are shaped."

(Inaugural Address, March 5, 1877 )
