Follow playbook of life


March brings the NCAA tournament. To be successful in sports a team needs a good plan, a playbook, to guide them how to respond to any situation that may arise.

The Bible is the playbook of life. In it you will find people dealing with many situations in many different ways. Those who live with moral character and righteousness are rewarded.

The Constitution is the rule book for American government. As with sports there are reasons for rules, and when the rules are broken, there are consequences. Unfortunately the players in government interpret the rules to suit themselves. John Adams said “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people; it is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

This is why the progressives want to change or ignore parts of the Constitution and for the church to abandon their moral standards. They need society’s morals to decline so they will be closer to the mainstream. They attack those who believe in personal responsibility and a historical definition of a moral life by calling them politically incorrect, racist, homophobic, etc. Most people with a higher moral standard pray for society. Unlike progressives they don’t compel those who disagree to condone their beliefs or lifestyle.
