O. K.


"Do not be deceived: God is not mocked. A man reaps what he sows" (Galatians 6:7, NIV). So do Nations! Let's see. . .

I think it started when Madelyn Murray O'Hair complained that she didn't want any prayer in our schools.

And we said O.K.

Then someone said, "You had better not read the Bible in school-the Bible that says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself."

And we said, O.K.

Remember Dr. Benjamin Spock, who said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem?

And we said, O.K.

Then someone said that teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave. And our administrators said, "Whoa, no one in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we don't want any bad publicity, and we surely don't want to be sued."

And we said, O.K.

Then someone said, "Let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and we won't even have to tell their parents."

And we said, O.K.

Then someone else said, "Let's give our sons and daughters all the condoms they want, so they can have all the "fun" they desire, and we won't have to tell their parents."

And we said, O.K.

And then some of our top officials said that it doesn't matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs. And we said, "As long as I have a job and the economy is good, it doesn't matter to me what anyone does in private, it's nobody's business."

In short, it's O.K.

So now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with "we reap what we sow."
