Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Heb. 13:8; Matt. 28:20b ... I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
I was wondering how I could explain why I share Bible verses in my letters. An idea came to me at church and the songs we sang about light. Before electricity, street lights had to be lit at night by a “lamplighter,” casting light into the darkness of the night. That’s what I’m trying to do, cast light into the darkness of this world and show God’s truth, love and justice, which his people don’t represent very well at times. We’re fallible. God isn’t. Amen.
Today some liberal educators are teaching “fuzzy math.” If a student makes an effort at trying to figure out a math problem but doesn’t get it right, they get the credit anyway. Gives new meaning to “A for effort.”
Fuzzy truth has been around since the garden. You can always tell fuzzy truth because it’s so inconsistent. For instance, if a woman drives to an abortion clinic and kills her baby in her womb, it’s an abortion, however, if she’s hit by a drunk driver and the baby is killed, it’s manslaughter. If a doctor has a patient die because of negligence, it’s malpractice. In Oregon and Washington state, a doctor can kill a patient and it’s euthanasia.
You see, the author of fuzzy truth, the devil, is called “the father of lies” and the “god of this age.” The God of the universe, in giving us his son Jesus, says in John 14:6a, “I am the way, the truth and the life...” On this I’ll leave you with Matt. 10:28. And that’s the truth. Amen.
Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend and had a great summer and God bless and protect our schools, students and faculty from harm this year. Amen.
