I Know You Are...But What Am I?...

A Commentary

"A group of nine Hawaii senators held hands, bowed their heads and sought God's blessing Wednesday, signaling that they'll still pray despite a vote last week to abandon official invocations.
Fears of court challenges compelled the state Senate to end prayers, making it the first legislative body in the nation to do so."

We hear much about so called tolerance on a daily basis from the pop- psychiatrists to the talking heads on the nightly news. After reading the above story about the Hawaii senators, I had to pause and say a few things. As most Christians realize, society at large is "tolerant" of almost everyone except the true Christ confessing Born Again Christian. When someone is allowed on one of the so called news programs, the liberal-progressives try to shout them down sounding like Pee Wee Hermon and his, "I know you are, but what am I routine!"

I am reminded some of the facets Wesleyan Quadrilateral when considering the Christian history and background of our great nation. The Bible clearly outlines the consequences of nations and kingdoms that ignored God and continued in their pagan practices. History also paints a clear picture of nations who rejected God.
Sadly our nation persists in continuing down this path that leads to nowhere at warp speed. Abortion on demand, same sex "marriage", spending like drunken sailors. I am thankful this group of senators had the backbone to stand up for what they believe. I hope and pray the rest of us will join them.
