Consequences of the knee jerks

From Jerry Todd

Seeing that good things come in threes, I’m seeing love of God, Country and Competition as the combination that moves a people along to greatness in all fields of endeavor. Toss in the hate and unbelief the progressives have been hammering for 100 years, and the fabric of society starts to crumble.

St. Paul covered it well in 2 Timothy 4:

"For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

6For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. 7I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."

Ed. "What their itching ears want to hear."  I couldn't have said it better myself.
