"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:"
I'd like to tell everyone out there in cyber-land that during these upcoming months, I'm going to be focusing almost exclusively on two series that focus on issues & matters that have been in my heart and mind for some time now. Thus, it's time for a change.
The summer months are especially busy for almost everyone, my family included. So, with the exception of updating you all about Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani's situation in Iran and abortion-related news, I will be blogging less this summer due to the time constraints related to conducting the necessary research for the upcoming series that I'm excited about.
As you all know, the general election is underway in earnest and the United States of America is at a critical juncture. In what will certainly be the most expensive, most divisive and most contentious election in a generation, the American people will be assaulted with lies, damned lies and prevaricated statistics so as to confuse them and mislead them.
In my humble opinion, the choices this Nation faces couldn't be more stark. It will be a contrast between over-regulation and freedom; a handout and a hand up; opportunism and opportunity; racial division and National unity; restriction and liberty; ruling bureaucrats and rule of law; immorality and morality; godlessness and Jesus Christ. The list could go on, but everyone out there gets the picture.
The path this Nation takes will have unintended consequences for a long, long time, both here Stateside and abroad. To be sure, other countries will feel the impact of this presidential election cycle. The implications couldn't have more gravitas; the stakes can't be any higher for America.
And, to the international readers (you know who you all are!), there are timely lessons for you and your nation as well.
Without further ado, I'd like to summarize the upcoming series -
1. The All-American Series will focus on the things that make America great, both historically and presently, as it revolves around a particular holiday or day of observation. The first post to roll out will be on Memorial Day and continue through the remainder of the year.
2. The Ideas Have Consequences Series will focus on the ideas shaping today's polical and cultural climate. It will vary from the language people use to the thoughts that drive people in their political, economic and spiritual transactions. This series will conclude on Election Day 2012.
Once again, thank you for your readership and kind words. I really do appreciate them. My hope is that these series will be a blessing for you and yours. May the Lord richly bless you in these times because it is times like these that we need a Saviour! In times like these we need the Bible. His name is Jesus Christ, the Eternal Word, the Son of the Living God!
Have a blessed summer as well as a blessed winter, for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere!
