I've come to notice of late the incredible boost of my community on Facebook. Not so much the numbers but the level of what they post. It's gone from incidental stories about their cats or dogs to inspirational quotations that indicate to me a learning organization. There are spiritual inputs, government watchdogs, and motivational quips that frankly are not only appreciated, but pretty darn informing. There is one young man who is a freshman in high school and the son of a dear friend who puts out John Maxwell quality inspirational thoughts. Now that's outstanding! It's a serious sign we are changing the culture in this country and the message is spreading like the flu. Here's the great part...that young fellow hasn't even hear of the Team or the Life business. He's simply expressing himself and influencing his friends.
Don't get me wrong, there are still the miniscule minority that stand on the other side of the fence. I was sent a suggestion to watch a video from TED the other day, there's 8 min. of my life I'll never get back. It consisted of a self proclaimed "intellectual" who mocked the idea of creation, but that was all he had to offer. No facts, no reason, just poorly attempted humor aimed at the opposition with nothing but his ire at the non believers of evolution to use as evidence of his aloof position of "know it all." Sadly the individual who posted this dribble likely thought the stance made him appear educated. We do have work to do my friends. Presenting an opposing world view is paramount to changing the culture of this great nation. The secular has to become informed and deprogrammed. Atheist and philosopher Bertrand Russell put it so well...
Without God, man has no purpose.
It's like playing hockey without a net. No philosophy that rejects Him can hope to stand. You cannot arrive at life's purpose by starting the focus on yourself. You have to begin with God, your Creator. You exist by the will of God, for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense. It is only through this realization we have purpose.
