This is a letter to our friends –


Suppose your teacher puts a chalk line on the board. She asks the class, “How long is that line?” Answers come quickly – 4 inches, 5 inches, 3 ½ inches, …

Then she holds a ruler next to the line and the class suddenly agrees – 4 3/4 inches.

My point – Without an accepted standard, there is chaos. Members of the class will pridefully argue that this or that opinion is correct, though in truth, they may be wrong. With an accepted standard, unity results.

Suppose the ruler being used as a standard is warped and another is straight. It would be unwise not to use the best ruler available. But suppose a class member refuses to accept the best ruler as a standard. That has no effect upon what is true.

America’s society is founded upon “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.” These laws have been accepted as the best standards since our founding. Not to accept them would be unwise – unless a better, more proven standard can be found. I agree in advance to accept such a standard!

For several generations, our society has drifted away from knowledge of these God-given laws. They have been replaced by lies and opinions. The doctrines of men.

We accept abortion as a valid choice rather than murder. We accept homosexuality as normal rather than sin. Now we are being asked to accept transgender as a normal lifestyle. These are examples of the chaos that results from ignorance, or rejection of a proven standard.

How do we stabilize and return to unity? We do it one person at a time, starting with ourselves. Begin by admitting the truth. We have drifted into man centered, rather than God centered reasoning. We no longer measure things by common sense and Biblical doctrine. Part of this may be that we have not studied and thought about such doctrine.

I suggest sitting yourself down and reading something from God’s word (the Bible) every day. Then forcing yourself to sit for a minute and be alone with God.

A story – Joe wanted to have a quiet time with God. The only time he could be sure not to be interrupted was from 3 to 3:15 every morning. Joe had no preconceptions about what would happen, he just wanted to be available to God.

Morning after morning for several weeks, Joe sat alone, available to God. Had we been watching, we would say, “Nothing happened.” One night, Joe became aware Christ had entered the room behind him. Joe continued to sit quietly. Joe felt hands resting upon his shoulders. Then he felt moisture.

“Lord!” said Joe, “You are crying. Why?”

“Because,” answered Christ, “I so appreciate our time together each morning.”
