“…Today, one could say that ‘Apathy’ is our most important by-product…”

Apathy: Think nothing. Do Nothing. Care nothing.  W-O-W…. what a condition to be in.

Think about this a moment: If you just sit back and “let it happen,” I’ll guarantee it will happen. If you want to prevent “it” from happening, then get off your duff and do something. If someone is pointing a gun at you, are you just going to sit there and let it happen? If someone is stealing from you, are you just going sit there and let it happen? If sales and profits are going down, are you going to just sit there and let it happen? You may have inherited the job; appointed to it; or elected…..it makes no difference…if the ship is sinking…than do something. In-action is guaranteed failure. ?

If your “rights and freedoms” are being restricted, eroded, or compromised…. Then, what are you going to do?   Progress is our most important product. That slogan was used by General Electric in the 50’s and 60’s, and Ronald Reagan used to host the General Electric Theater on Sunday nights in the 60’s.

Today, one could say that “Apathy is our most important bi-product.” Purposeful, or not.  It would fit well with the attitude of America today. It just seems like “we don’t give a darn” anymore. What’s gotten into us? We’ve been on a “slippery-slope” for a good 10 years; and it’s not getting better, but worse.

To me…it looks like “the fall of the Roman Empire” all over again. If God had not promised that He would not flood us out again, then I’d be looking for the water to rise.  It is said in Genesis 9:11-12 “I establish My covenant with you; and all flesh shall never again be cut off by the water of the flood, neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth.” God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations.

I’m sure that He is on the “war-path” again, with all that is happening to us.  One does not “kick God out” of the Board Rooms of America, the schools, and society….and “get-away-with-it.”  One does not “mock God.”  We are told in Galatians 6:7-8 – Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. 8For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

It’s pretty simple reading…wake up America!  Care Enough…Vote!  Demand “term limits.” Return America to the Republic. ….Blessings…cjlb…5/27/15.
