      Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:
      Except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

What is going on in this crazy world? It seems as if the whole world has gone crazy and our country is no exception. Today is Sanctity of Human Life Day and I think everyone can agree that God wants human life to be sanctified and set apart from all other forms of life. We were created in the image of God and that makes us different, special, and set apart. Which no matter what anyone says makes abortion, murder, suicide, and assisted suicide wrong. A couple of weeks ago Tammy and I went out to eat, and as we were eating, she got dizzy and when she stood up to leave, she passed out cold, I mean she went down like a sack of potatoes. Obviously, this caused a ruckus in the restaurant, everyone wanted to try to help her. Each person was trying to figure out what had caused her to pass out. It seemed that everyone understood that passing out was not the problem only a symptom of an underlying problem. I submit to you today that the crazy actions of this world are not the problem but rather the symptoms of a world that has turned its back on God and the plans that He as for them. Please know that if people ignore God and His willed designed for their life, there will be a break down in the family, the Church, the country, and of course the world. The result will be people living perverted lives, men with men, women with women, kids rebelling against their families, a break down in marriage, rampant crime, murder, and lawlessness. If God is not honored in the family, nor will He be honored in the Nation, to fix the world we must start by fixing our families. You may think that the problems in our country are so big and that you have no control or way of making a difference, but I suggest that if we will do our part by leading our home and fulfilling our Biblical responsibilities then we can find healing for our sin sick world.
