Let Your Light Shine!

I often wonder if we all realize just how important it is that we need to change the culture in the United States? The decline of civilization hangs in the balance! The good news is this is easily reversed! It's simply a matter of understanding where you are now is not all there is. We have to be cognizant of the idea that we can be transformed by the renewal of the mind, at any time of our choosing. We do not have to conform to the decline of society, but can act out by reminding ourselves what is good, acceptable, and honorable.

You see our mind is already undergoing a transformation. We are bombarded with media daily that leads us in one direction or another. How about we take charge of the input we are influenced by? A day never passes without a reminder that credibility is a lost art, and the push toward a secular society, free of the binds of morality, is what is cool and trendy.

Wouldn't it be a hoot is we turned the tables on them? How about we demand credibility, and influence society through our actions? What if we, "Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father in heaven."- (Matt 5:16), and that became the model of society?

It's simply a matter of knowledge. The counter culture uses ignorance as their tool. They engage in debates with unarmed, well meaning, representatives of what is good, and slaughter them with preparation. We all need to be capable of defending what we believe and why we believe it. We have to understand the tactics of the secular credentialist and use knowledge to rebuke them. You'll find when they are engaged they have little in the way of substance, because they have nothing to stand on. It's all a matter of being better informed. To that end, it's our responsibility to seek out the information and use the knowledge. Drink deeply of good books, be the example to others, and learn to defend what you know to be true. This is how we win back the culture.

Final thought, we have them on the ropes. Now is not the time to let up! Society is fed up with the status quo and knows in it's heart we need a change. Be that agent of change!

God Bless!
