It couldnâ€™t have been a more beautiful morning in Kansas. Grandad and I had just finished a walk together, and we were sitting in a couple of lawn chairs out in front of their house. In making conversation, I shared how there were a couple of people who reacted to our including the mention of aborted babies in our Memorial Day post. I asked Grandad what he thought about it.
Grandad is a eighty-year-old, decorated, retired Army officer, and he was wounded in Vietnam. I had asked him a few minutes earlier if he would like me to put the U.S. Flag out. He said yes, and that he missed having it out every day. He loves his country and served his country with all he had. With that background, he looked at me, gave me a thumbs up and said, â€œGreat idea! It was good to mention them.â€
We believe God has called Titus2 to â€œequip, exhort and encourageâ€ believers in the Lord Jesus Christ to a walk that is pleasing to our Lord. As we endeavor to do that, we have seen that there are those who disagree with what we share. While our flesh would have everyone like us, we know what we share will not make everyone happy. As a result, we have at times received negative and even harsh criticism from those who disagree with us. It is especially troublesome to those who disagree with us and want to express their views on our blog that we choose not to approve their posts.
We feel that the Lord will hold us accountable for what is shared via our website. This is a blog and not a public forum. The purpose is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and be salt and light to a lost and dying world. Our heartâ€™s desire is to please Him. Will we make mistakes in the process? Iâ€™m sure, but the only way to make a mistake is to do something. We believe itâ€™s worth the risk.
â€œNo man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldierâ€
(2 Timothy 2:4).
