I've always admired your posts and never questioned your commitment to God and our Christian based republic. However, as Sherman wisely noted, those other battles are lost (I'll add: "for now"). Before we can return to those battles we have to defeat the current one: the homosexual agenda, as if we don't, ALL will be lost.
By all means start holding up fellow Christians and our churches to higher standards, but don't get involved in too many battles, as the entire war will then be lost.
I'm in agreement with you. The homosexual deluge on society is the most insidious, destructive spirit attacking humanity today, although most FReepers here would deny it.
But we can walk and chew gum at the same time. To strengthen those other supports for what is good, our own marriages and our own sexual purity, we have to look, ironically, elsewhere - other than to our own marriages and sexual purity. We MUST stop consuming popular culture like water; it is deadly poison and we deceive ourselves if we think we can continue wallowing in it and emerge unscathed. My television has been "unplugged" for over a year, since the digital conversion, and I don't miss it one bit. In the off chance that I do see a t.v. broadcast somewhere, I am horrified by the content and presentation. And to think that most people spend hours of every day in front of this manure pile.
I haven't been to a movie in over a year and know I'm not missing anything. In that time, I've read several very good books that provoke some much-needed thinking - something that t.v. and movies virtually never do.
