Where is the line?

We are all watching in astonishment, and bewilderment, the events engulfing our nation as many try to “rewrite” history.

Well, ok, where do you want to stop?

If there is legitimacy to the claim that a confederate statue “offends”; then so also there must be a legitimate argument for any who would say a Martin Luther King statue/monument offends.

Then certainly one could find at least a few who have a real issue with:

Presidential statues/monuments

Veteran statues/monuments

Native American statues/monuments

Etc. etc.

Sadly, what is being overlooked in all these cases is not the actual statue or monument. The core issue is the arbitrarily assigned decision to remove the statue or monument for no other reason to appease a small group stirring up the masses.

Well, here is a lesson in life – you can’t please everybody!! And you should not try to.

Good or bad, our history is our history. If you can’t live with it, then there are plenty of countries in the world to choose from. Pick one!

In a recent message this pastor pointed out the following passage of scripture and the actual content of it-not what we think it says! The audience was astonished and also amazed. God says we should have NO IMAGES – period!

Exodous 20:4  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 

Note- any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:  That includes likeness or images of people.

So, let’s just get rid of ALL statues and monuments. Problem solved!

Though of the Week

When you remove a bur of someone’s saddle, if they really just want to fight-they’ll find another “bur” to harp about!
