Redefining and Rediscovering

Daily Reading: Deuteronomy 12-13


Scripture Focus: For every abominable thing that the Lord hates they have done for their gods, for they even burn their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods. (Deuteronomy 12.31b)


Devotional Thought: How quickly morality has been redefined! We live in a culture where "anything goes!" The only boundaries, it seems, are boundaries that prevent decent people from having boundaries, from living out their moral and religious convictions. Nowhere is this seen more than it is seen in the current confusion surrounding sexuality and gender identity.

We have a new god in America. We serve him or her or cis or whatever at the altar of political correctness. When we unleashed the sexual revolution back in the 60's, we had no idea where it was headed. It has become clear. Every decent thing, every accepted truth, every Christian notion of morality is to be rejected with vehemence and retribution. We have replaced decency, modesty, and chasteness with "every abominable thing." And the god of this age will not be satisfied until all bend the knee.


But, there is trouble in paradise. The sexual revolution has come back upon the heads of those who fomented the confusion. The free 'pass' once given to abusive men has now demanded payment. Feminists, who once cried out for reproductive freedom, are now finding it necessary to join #MeToo. The pendulum has swept so far that many mothers' innocent sons (and husbands) will be crushed as collateral damage. "That's OK," says the new god. It is the necessary cost of controlling the demon released in worship of sexual freedom and gender fluidity.


Truth is at stake. Real truth, not relative truth. May God help us in the Church to rediscover the ancient paths.


Prayer: Lord God, who has given us your Word to guide us, forgive us for rejecting, ridiculing and persecuting your ways. Help us to live holy, loving, and good lives so that the name of our God will not be impugned. Amen.

Psalm of the Day: Psalm 16.1-6

1 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. 2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”

3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.

4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names on my lips.

5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. 6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
