Cult of Victimhood, Part 2

There are many reasons why you would not want to glory in your own victimhood. Some I mentioned from part one:

Most healthy cultures lived by the idea, "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger."
Forgiveness is a healthy trait, whether you are a Christian or not, and we Christians are commanded to forgive one another. Focusing on being a victim pretty much rules out having forgiven the person.
Christians are told to count it all joy, whatever trials we go through.

Cult of Victimhood

Today I would like to address this new cult of victimhood that is becoming so prevalent in our society. People are scrambling to become part of a victimized class -- women, black, gay, etc. etc. etc. The more victimized groups you can belong to, the more special treatment you can receive. This is a problem in many ways. If you go through life viewing yourself primarily as a victim, it stunts your growth.

Grievous Billboards

These are real billboards that I have seen in the Dallas area recently that caused me to grieve. Are we really so narcissistic? Have we really become this pathetic? Come quickly Lord Jesus!

Abortion is Self-Care

It's all about the question, "Who is God?"

On a world scale, the question dominating world events is: Who is God?

Will the answer be God and His kingdom: TRUTH, justice, mercy, love, forgiveness, humility, family, generosity.

Will it be Satan and his kingdom? Satan's kingdom consists of: LIES, deception, hatred, greed, revenge, lust, perversion, murder, envy, false religion (i.e. Islam, Buddhism, New Age, Hinduism, alien worship...). It is all designed to separate you from the one true God, the Creator, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. It is all designed to keep you part of Satan's kingdom.

A Funny Thing Happened Today

I was sitting at a traffic light in a small town in Indiana today. A car pulled up next to me, and ahead of me a bit. I saw through the open window the man in the car passenger seat had oxygen tubes, and looked real sick. He was quite an older man. I started praying silently for healing for him. Immediately he turned around and stared at me. He wasn't moving around very easily and turning around to look at me was hard for him. I smiled at him, but he wasn't friendly at all.

Everything is Stacked Against Us

Whenever someone comes to believe the Truth of the Bible, it is an honest to goodness miracle. There is so much stacked against people seeing the truth, especially here in the US. We are inundated with lies. Schools indoctrinate us into evolution, and globe earth, and billions of years, and scientism. The television reinforces what the schools teach, and show you how you can have your best life now, and sin without repercussions.

God Gives Time

Noah was a preacher of righteousness. He was the only one in a wicked world. The world had become so wicked, that God was sorry he made mankind and decided to destoy them. But Noah found favor with God -- thankfully for us!! Noah listened to God and built the Ark and he preached righteousness, although no one apparently listened. Only Noah's family got in the Ark with him. It took Noah 120 years to build the Ark. God gave mankind 120 years to repent, but they did not. They did not listen to the warnings and they did not cease from their wickedness during that time.
