The voters of our fair state recently rendered a well deserved set back to the foes of common sense, decency and what were once commonly understood to be "traditional values." I am certain that even if the most liberal ones of our culture could be transported back into time only a scant few decades ago, they would be appalled by the caliber of issues that have gained respectability in our culture.

But the frog in the kettle went belly up years ago in the boiling waters of social degradation when the settled question over when life begins suddenly became a scientific enigma. Since then, we are no longer certain when a male is a man and when a female is a woman. Because of our collective, social insanity, we are having to open bathrooms to anyone who perceives themselves to be a particular gender, anatomy and physiology not withstanding.

So now, future generations--called "children" are being indoctrinated into the mores of a culture whose ideologies were, once upon a time, at least informed by, if not grounded in a book called the Bible. Now those ideologies are informed by nothing more than personal preference.

Never-the-less, as secularism took hold, we were still governed by the rule of law where Lady Justice wore a blind-fold indicating the administration of her craft was without fear or favor, regardless of money, power, race, or prestige. But everything has changed. The new values of America have no objective mooring to anything outside one's personal convictions and the future of America is being squeezed into an amoral vacuum devoid of reason.

In the words of the Book which once informed our political, social and scientific foundations, the children of our nation are being "stumbled;" tripped up in their God given opportunity and inalienable right to be taught inviolate truth. For everything else gone wrong, this may be the most egregious infraction of the culture at large. Why? Because the God of the Bible, not the god of one's creation--promises severe repercussions to anyone who puts obstacles in the way of the most impressionable of our land. These are the ones with immature minds and who lack longevity--who are prohibited by cultural, legislative and judicial decree, from meeting and establishing a friendship with the very Creator who made them. And the Creator does not take that lightly.

"…whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea." (Matthew 18:6)

The assault on Christians in this land-of-the-free has become routine. Children for whom Sunday school and church are part of their family pattern are singled out in the classrooms of our "public schools" for ridicule by teachers or staff and are often judged by a separate standard of performance than other students.

It is treated as the height of bigotry to "impose" the morality of a God-informed world- view on students who have been shaped to question their sexual identity despite what their anatomy clearly reveals. Yet imposing the immorality of a godless culture on students who are Christian, is deemed tolerant and sensitive. But the God many wish to ignore has the last say.

"Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes!" (Matthew 18:7)

At the end of the day there will be a time when consummate justice will not be mediated through human agency, but through the Law Giver Himself and those who stumble the little ones will be dealt with as only God can.
