More religious reading needed
To the editor:
Do you remember William J. Bennett’s “The Book of Virtues” written 25 years ago, followed by “The Moral Compass,” published two years later? Said virtues would include but not be limited to self-discipline, compassion, responsibility, work, courage, perseverance, honesty, loyalty, and faith. Might it be helpful that our D.C. politicians read these books?
For over 40 years the public schools have been indoctrinating students in the self-esteem hoax using faux psychology. Children are taught they’re just animals (evolution). Meanwhile, reading, writing and arithmetic scores keep declining. However, although in the minority, both good parenting and home schooling are still turning out wholesome offspring.
In Zeph 3:1 the prophet says of Jerusalem “Woe to her that is filthy and polluted … her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law … the unjust knoweth no shame.” This could be said of America today.
Also 2 Tim 3:1-5 states, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
In other words, there will be little distinction between the secular world and the religious world in the last days. Are we there yet?
My good fortune is to have found a Bible-believing local church where every message sounds like a mini-revival and the parishioners are not only spiritually fed but also encouraged to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others.
