When law and morality collide
By A.J. Castellitto

Discernment: the ability to see and understand people, things, or situations clearly and intelligently

Discrimination:

-the ability to recognize the difference between things that are of good quality and those that are not

-the ability to understand that one thing is different from another thing

Discrimination stresses the power to distinguish and select what is true or appropriate or excellent


Today's culture has bought into the acceptance, legitimization and glorification of false desires leading to normalization of deviant behavior. Unfortunately, it's been a long time coming.

Look at Bruce Jenner and pray for widespread clarity and truth-based charity. We are male, with the 'equipment' (for lack of a better word) to be with a woman and vice versa. It's how we've been designed.

Once you get into inner desire to drive social standards, you get deviant and defiant against natural order and created purpose. Ultimately, only misery and confusion will ensue......

Core biblical, moral principles and foundations must drive secular society – not in terms of punishment and force, necessarily – but as civil standards for health, dignity and respect for self and neighbor. Unlike my well-meaning, libertarian-leaning brothers and sisters, I don't necessarily see the mutual exclusion.....

Small Government can only be born and maintained via the Judeo-Christian mindset, but tragically, we are too fallen and rebellious to see the light.....especially in our day.

We have become so open and free that we must be controlled. Soon the bondage will come......

1 Corinthians 6:9 – Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind

Jude 1:7 – Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

1 Timothy 1:9-10 – Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine

Romans 1:28 – And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient
