a bit of a rant...
I told you this was a bit of a rant. Blame my pregnancy hormones.
The thing that got me was that in the debate going on in the comments someone used a scritpure and basically said that "everything is permissible" so why not do whatever...essentially that is what I read in a ton of what people were replying. It made me wonder if people actually read their bibles anymore. I mean...the scritpure reads "Everything is permissible for me, but not everything is helpful. Everything is permissible for me, but I will not allow anything to control me." 1 Cor 6:12 That is so much different then "everything is permissible" Any decision you make in this life you could somehow justify in the end. That is the problem with making decisions based on the moment and current need instead of on your values. This applies to so much more than money matters. I realize we live in a post modern culture where truth is relative but I don't buy it. I think truth is truth and you live your life from what that truth is.
I mean. Ug.
Sorry. I am getting it out of my system blog style. The crazy thing is that the issue talked about on his blog isn't what got me riled up. It was the logic people were using for their arguments either way. Clearly post modern is taking over the worlds thinking. How can we possibly communicate truth and values that don't change with circumstances in this day and age?
I am a fan of making decisions based on my beliefs not the other way around. okay. deep breaths. I haven't eaten in a while (which means I haven't puked in a while...) so maybe that explains my rant to an extent.
on to my next meeting!
(ps. I have had some better moments with this pregnancy...I can't say better "days" yet...but moments...it's a step up and for that I am grateful. Thanks everyone for praying for me. That is the most help it seems.)
