Upside Down

It’s becoming more and more obvious to me that our society is totally upside down.

A young person shared with me the other day that they came completely off Facebook. I commented how I missed seeing their posts and pictures and they replied, “I can’t do it. I just can’t stand it. Adults that I believed were good people –  Sunday school teachers, Bible study leaders, Deacons in our church when I was a child.…they’ve all flipped a switch and I don’t like what I see. I am trying to keep some amount of respect for them intact. The only way I can do that is to not read their comments on Facebook.”

Regardless of our personal beliefs, if we cast Bible teachings aside in order to feel like our side “won,” we are not being the witness that Christ asked us to be when He left this earth.

How can we hold an actress to a higher level of accountability than we held a Presidential candidate?

How can we criticize and belittle an exiting First Lady who was kind, faithful to her family, and devoted to her children in order to support the new First Lady who has her own set of skeletons in the closet?

Plain and simple, the majority of church goers in American will uphold their political beliefs before they will witness for Christ. They will fight for their party’s elected official before they will fight for souls headed to Hell. They will turn against family members and friends instead of unifying under Christ to impact the world.

If vulgar remarks from a man can be seen as “Locker Room talk,” why don’t we just go ahead and accept that an acceptance speech at an award show is “Hollywood talk,” and move on down the road?

The next generation is watching.

Let's be honest, does any of this really matter?
