1 House of Prayer - LAUS DEO

Changing the culture - Scriptural literacy

November 27, 2012

Since the election, I've been pondering the problems we are facing as a nation. I've always believed that all the problems we face can be fixed if we turn to God and live our lives the best we can in accordance to what He has taught. That can be problematic because we don't live in a culture condusive to that. I've been praying in my heart a lot on the issue.

It seems to me that we face a huge problem with our society because as a whole our society is very ignorant of the scriptures. I want to do something about that. But quite frankly, I am not sure where to start. Brethren, I propose we pray on this and seek the Lord's guidence in how to reignite the fire of the scriptures in people's lives. Even if we can only help a few more people, we will be doing a great service to our nation.

I also think we should pray on writing the Word on our heart. Particularly the Ten commandments. The government and the radicals in our society may succeed at taking them out of public life, but that doesn't mean we can't write them on our heart. I think writing them on our heart will have a much more powerful effect on us than displaying them in our courthouses anyway.

Lon, no matter what we say or do can we make another choose God and His word. The scriptures do speak to those that believe. What I have found in my latter years is the scriptures are the word of God written through His people. The first book of the scripture genesis speaks volumes if we believe. God created the heaven and the earth and the following verses reveal All within it. If we believe that God is the Almighty Creator then we do not have to doubt where He is.

Is it time to try to develop a prayer vigil--- try to get our many groups together?

Thanks, Neil, I'm joining you in your invitation to spiritual life, which is a journey into the fullness of life and love in God and one another. We have been on that journey together in this past year and are continuing on.
In this year, I have been reading bits and pieces from the writings of Thomas Merton. Following is an applicable quote.

Maggie, this is why we must elect virtous people to speak for us.
Prayer is the force which compels the hammer to hit the nail on its head. Keep your prayers strong and true Neil and teach what it is that you learn.
Man can take away select freedoms from an individual. It is when man takes away an individual's conscience that an individual becomes a citizen to slavery.

Kind of sad that blasphemy of Christ doesn't create the same reaction of this "blasphemy" against Obama.
