I Long for the day when….


  • I Long for the day when….

    Oh I long for the day when TV shows positioned the father as a hero and knowing what is best and not being the goat, and when dysfunctional families where like single parent Andy and his boy Opie, who offered thanks to God for the food on the table and went to church on Sundays and sang in the church choir -- and gay meant happy and cheerful countenance.

    Oh I long for the day when flying on a plane, I didn’t have to strip down into my skivvies and take off my shoes to walk a few hundred more feet to board a plane.

    Oh I long for the day when political ads where about what the candidates ideas were and not about the dirt of his challenger.

    Oh I long for the day when people could leave their front door open without fear and that the house alarm was the family dog.

    Oh I long for the day that I could openly discuss the Lord’s work within the workplace and it was common talk instead of asking for permission to discuss because it might offend.

    Oh I long for the day when drugs were used as medicine and not as a question in the hospital emergency room if I used recreationally.

    Oh I long for the day when Made in America was a badge of honor instead of a marker of rarity.

    Oh I long for the day when those who wrote the US constitution understood it to preserve religious freedom instead of containing it.

    Oh I long for the day when folks offered respect instead of anger; a turning of a cheek instead of a road rage chase scene; a thank you instead of a 'give me that'; grace given to one another instead of entitlements taken.

    Oh I long for the day when unborn babes were allowed to be… enough said.

    Oh I long for the day when church was the major focus for the family to gather around, that God was God and man humbled.

    Oh I long for the day when prayer was not only allowed, but was encouraged, in schools, in the work place, in the halls of government.

    Oh I long for the day that the 10 commandments within the halls of US government be deemed allowed based on the values they convey and not as historic artwork that we now declare that they are.

    And I long for the day when my Lord and Savior returns for His bride and reigns as King… come Lord Jesus. Come.

  • The Electric Nature of the Universe

    Conventional teaching is that the sun and stars obtain their energy by nuclear reaction, that is: atoms splitting to become a less complex elements, thereby releasing energy. However there are several things about that theory that cannot be explained, such as: how can this continuing reaction be controlled, so as not to totally explode? Why isn’t the sun just a dead ball of helium by now, or at least showing signs of degeneration? Why do the stars have coronas – something not associated with nucle...

  • The Incredible Story of the Goldsmiths Miracle
    by Cyberseeker
    Once upon a time, before politicians and economists were born, life was somewhat simpler. The only money in existence were coins. You either had it or you didn't, and that was about the sum of the matter. But times were bad. Highwaymen and robbers helped create an environment that prompted the townspeople to leave their money with the local goldsmith. They were the logical choice - they had the best vaults, by virtue of their trade. In return, the goldsmith would issue a receipt, which was ke...

  • Werther and the Rise of Romantic Melancholia
    by Carl Halling

    Most students of world literature would surely agree that Goethe's famous epistolary novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther, has exerted a quite incalculable influence on the evolution of the Western mind from the date of its publication in 1774. And that it did so principally through Romanticism, that great movement in the arts of which it was a prime antecedent, would be disputed by few. And while the notion that melancholy is a feature of sensitive and creative youth was not new at the

    by Carl Halling
    Yet, his inner turmoil proved an asset when it came to his acting career, and he provided some extraordinary performances in the second half of the '80s. The first of these took place at the University of Cambridge, where he studied for a term in the winter of '86 as part of their teacher training unit, before typically taking off in the early part of the new year. While the second was at Notting Hill's famous Gate Theatre, where he received some fair reviews for his acting from various periodica...

  • Leitmotifs from an English Pastorale 1.
    by Carl Halling
    One thing is certain. Paul Runacles had not been born into a typically privileged upper middle class family, and so by the time he arrived at his college, he was bereft of a frame of reference; unlike the majority of his fellow pupils, weaned on the gilded sports of the British social elite. And he escaped from his college once, like some kind of hysterical gymslip schoolgirl...just the once it was...around 1971 or '72 to avoid being punished for something stupid he did. It was an utterly...

  • Occupy This
    by Sojourner
    I agree with the a point. I agree that it's not fair for a handful of individuals to control most of the wealth in the world, while the majority of people barely get by--and some actually do without. But such is the way of the world under the system of man's governance. That some live in luxury while others live in abject poverty is not what God intended when He created man. Adam chose to rebel against God in the garden of Eden, and to rule himself--thereby bringing a curse upon both...
