What is wrong with our society? We are destroying historical monuments to erase our history. We allow men, dressed as weird, gross caricatures of women, to read to our children in public libraries in order to confuse them about the distinct line between the gender boundaries. We allow men dressed as women, many who are sex offenders, to enter into women’s restrooms. People are mutilating their bodies and claiming to be some gender other than their biological gender. We are legalizing vices that were once off limits to any decent society. What is wrong with us?

What is wrong with the church? We are replacing a thus saith the Lord with movies, theater, plays and exercise classes and other social events. Churches that wear the Lord’s name are using translations that once would have been avoided. Things are happening today, both in society at large and in the church, that we never would have believed could have happened just a few, short years ago. It is as if we are witnessing the methodical and purposeful erosion of our culture. It seems to be spiraling out of control. How could this have happened?. . . .

Digital Library

The Mt. Vernon Church of Christ is building a digital library to aid serious Bible students in their study.  When possible, we will be adding new volumes.  We are grateful to the many sources from which we draw these volumes for making these available.  We take no credit for them ourselves.  We do not necesarrily endorse everything in every volume.  We simply provide them as aids to Bible study.  This week:

Book of Bible Geography

To be insensible to public opinion, or to the estimation in which we are held by others, indicates anything, rather than a good and generous spirit. It is, indeed, the mark of a low and worthless character; devoid of principle, and therefore devoid of shame. A young man is not far from ruin, when he can say without blushing, I don't care what others think of me.

But to have a proper regard for public opinion, is one thing; to make that opinion our rule of action, is quite another. The one we may cherish consistently with purest virtue, and the most unbending rectitude; the other we can not adopt, without an utter abandonment of principle and disregard of duty. . . .

Golden Thought

"We often miss opportunity because it's dressed in overalls and looks like work" 

--Thomas A. Edison


Old Pharaoh said, "Who is the Lord,
That I should hear His voice?"
He refused to let God's people go,
In pride he made his choice.

And Naaman plagued with leprosy,
With the prophet he did chide.
In anger he refused God's will,
And he left, unhealed, by pride.

Then proud Haman took offense
At the Jew named Mordecai.
Who sought to do him evil.
But by the gallows he did die

So when pride cometh, then cometh shame.
It's true with one and all.
Pride goes before destruction,
Haughty spirits before the fall.

Eric L. Padgett - Nov. 14, 2019
