THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Sometimes, it pays to compromise.
For their first New Year's together as a married couple, his wife offered him a choice of pumpkin pie, cheesecake or orange-date cake.
"Pumpkin pie," he requested.
"We've been eating pumpkin pie since Thanksgiving," she said. "Can't you choose something else?"
"Okay," He replied, "how about cheesecake?"
Making a face, she said, "After all that rich food you ate over Christmas, surely you don't want cheesecake."
Recognizing his limited options, he then selected orange-date cake.
"Oh, I'm glad you chose that one," she said. "Orange-date cake is a New Year's tradition in our family."
He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Sometimes it does NOT pay to compromise!
The Boy Scouts of America teach “survival” tactics.
Unfortunately, they are going to NEED them!
Though the BSA has maintained its stand for moral rightness,
many who formerly supported them are now dropping that support.
In July, the BSA announced it would maintain a ban on homosexual leaders.
Since then, some corporate sponsors have begun “condemning the just,” and calling “evil good!”
For the Scouts, integrity is the manner in which to maintain security.
For over a hundred years Boy Scouts of America has sought to instill character and integrity in boys.
However, several times, the BSA had to pay lawsuits for boys who were victimized by same-sex predators.
Banning those kinds of leaders is a moral stance that secures them from those type claims.
More than security, though, is the fact the BSA is standing to ensure that young boys are no longer
subjected to this immoral behavior and emotional trauma.
When moral rightness is compromised for social correctness, then “darkness” is put forward for “light!”
I’m going to stand with those who oppose traumatizing young boys.
Where will you stand?
