Can you believe it?

Surely that’s “fake news” -right?

Well… I heard it on the local TV news.  (Of course, the weather-forecaster(s) there predicted rain twice this week, better chances the second time, but instead we got a severe dirt storm, so…, really…, I don’t know.)

Back when I moved here, we led the nation (the NATION!) in STD’s.  (They call them STI’s these days (unless that has changed again since last I heard).)

Yeah, and we are about as “Christian” as it gets here in Lubbock.

Think something is broken in our self-image?  (I mean something more than the bones of infants???)

(Yeah, cheap shot, huh?)

Well, if your wife works in the PICU, one of the main places where small abused bodies go for healing, and you see her struggling with PTSD from it, then it doesn’t seem like such a cheap shot.  (Just imagine how cheap it seems if you are her, and you don’t have to imagine the things she sees.)

Come on, Lubbock.  We can do better than this.  I think it’s time for some confession and repentance.  We are not representing Jesus anything LIKE we think.  Repent and trust in the Gospel of God.  The kingdom of God is at hand.

(Somebody give that sermon the AMEN.)
