When it’s easier to go along with the crowd


Isaiah 59:15
 There is no truth-telling anymore, and anyone who tries to do right finds he is the next target. It’s true. The Eternal One saw it all and was understandably perturbed at the absence of justice.


When you stand for #truth and against
 #deception and wickedness, you become the bad guy in the eyes of many. – Pastor Adrian Rogers #quote


I’ve been mulling over this blog post until I listed to Pastor Adrian Roger’s sermon titled “A Nation in Crisis.” We are a people who are falling away quickly, and most of us are going along for the ride.

When the Lord changed my life, I resisted because it meant leaving the comfort zone of my own perfect little world. It meant allowing God to show me the things I needed to change. It meant changing the things I believed and the things I did that weren't in God’s plan. 

It also meant stepping out for Biblical truth and stepping on lots of toes.



The fact remains: It’s not okay for two men or two women to get married. It’s not Biblical, and since the Bible is my Book of the Law, then I stand by it – albeit alone. I'm not compromising God's word and I'm not going along with the crowd. I did that for far too many years.   



No more.


I’ll take the road less travelled.

Houston - we have a problem
I confess that before the 2016 presidential election, I wasn’t interested or concerned about participating in government or politics.  
That changed on Nov. 8, 2016.  
It’s now painfully clear how important it is to know what our elected politicians are doing on local, state and national levels. It’s time to shake ourselves out of complacency. We must be involved in directing our basic American rights, our policing, our healthcare, our financial lives and more. Our families depend on us.
The best way to do this is to get to know your elected officials and to vote.
Consider running for office or supporting someone you think has the gifts to be a politician. Our families are in crisis, our healthcare is in crisis, immigrant families are in danger and law enforcement may not be serving the interests of people of color   We need people who serve the interests of the majority of our communities
These are my recommendations: Get together with your family, friends and…
