10 Things that have changed since I was a child
« on: April 30, 2015, 05:24:00 PM »
When I was a child:

1. Sodomy (homosexuality) was a crime, but today it's a federally protected right.

2. Marriage was between a man and a woman, but today the federal courts have said that it can be between a man and a man or a woman and a woman.

3. It took 3-4 days to mail a letter across town or across the nation, but now it can be instantly emailed (with attachments and photos).

4. Typewriters were state-of-the art, but today they are obsolete and are replaced by computers.

5. Encyclopedias and Cliff Notes were used to find quick answers, but Google has replaced them for instant information.

6. College degrees could only be achieved by attending in-resident, but today can be obtained online without ever setting foot on campus.

7. Blue laws forced stores to close on Sunday, but today most stores are open all weekend.

8. TV only had 13 channels and only 3-4 of them had working stations on them, but today youtube can be watched 24/7 on your phone.

9. American births outside of marriage comprised 6% for Caucasians and 24% for blacks, but today illegitimate births comprise 35% for Caucasians and 71% for blacks. Abortions keep those percentages artificially low.

10. Less than 500,000 Americans collected Social Security Disability payments, but today it's over over 9 million and it's been growing by 29-44% each year since 2003.

"So then, stand firm and hold to the traditions :o which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

Interest9ng facts.  Thanks for sharing.  Back in the '30s, a loaf of bread cost 8c and a gallon of gas 25c a gallon or less.  Children were spanked by parents for being disobedient, while today, you will be yanked into court for abusing your child.

Indeed, things have changed!  Most of which for the worse, ever since WWII.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
