We love to categorize ourselves. What “season” are you? What is your “personality type”? What is your “love language”? Ever noticed that some women’s magazines have some sort of “test” in every issue that promises to reveal a new niche into which you can comfortably settle. We like to think we are distinct, unique…along with all the others in our group. Ironic, isn’t it? As a probing observation from the character “Syndrome” in The Incredibles [Pixar is the extent of my Hollywood exposure these days] states, “When everyone’s special…no one will be.”
We now have an administration that is attempting to blur all sorts of lines of distinction in humanity. Is it viable life or a mass of cells? Is he male, or male behaving as female, or male preferring both male and female, or male insisting to be altered into female? We of many skin colors are thrown into the “melting pot” and stirred around until black culture, Asian culture, Italian, German, and Swedish cultures dissolve into a one-world ooze. All religions should embrace one another, regardless of creed or practice. Individual constitutional rights should fade from view as we teach ourselves to trust that the government knows best when it comes to our children’s education, our parenting practices, and the protection our homes.

“And that, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed.” Romans 13:11
It is time we put our thinking caps on. Most of us just need to wind our propellers a little tighter…but there may be some (none of my readers, I’m sure) who need to dig in their dusty attics among the mothballs and cobwebs to find theirs. The Bible has very much to say about what we think and how we think. We are not to conform to this world. The only thing we are to conform to is the image of the Lord Jesus.
If you do that right, it should keep you occupied for a very long time.
ps Okay, so obviously I can’t stay away from writing. I have trimmed down many responsibilities this week; but writing to encourage others in the Lord is something I love too much. 😉
