Times have really changed.

When I was young, growing up in Canonsburg, Pa., home of the Polish King, Bobby Vinton and the Crooner, Perry Como. We had fun indoors at night. Parents would go out on weekends and have a good time while babysitters made us kids popcorn and sat us down to watch Chilly Billy on WIIC-TV, Pittsburgh with a show called Chiller Theatre. We’d watch Vincent Price and all the spooky guys back then. We weren’t out like the kids today, screaming and yelling at 10-11:00 at night. And not only do the kids cry and scream, the parents do it as well now.

The innocent old-fashioned people have to lie in their beds or sit in their homes listening to the sounds of the weak who consider their kids as friends and sometimes nuisances. “Aw let ’em run!” they say. “Their just kids!” “Billy behave yourself! I’ll count to three!!” Really? Did that ever really work anyway? Those same kids today are the ones flipping the bird in the faces of police. Theres so much violence anymore.. And at 11:00 at night? It sounds like the parents are the kids. There is so much disrespect. And everyone is heated at the littlest startling.

(Father God forgive us for our trespasses?) Folks do you know what a trespass is? Knowing that you are doing wrong and not correcting yourself. This is why Jesus said, “Forgive us of our trespasses AS we forgive those who trespass against us.”

Sometimes as human beings we just don’t know when we are doing it but there are a lot of times that we do.

Times have really changed.

Good Friday Morning! 9/4/20

The Enticement of Sinners
Pro 1:8  My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
Pro 1:9  For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
Pro 1:10  My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
Pro 1:11  If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
Pro 1:12  Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
Pro 1:13  We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
Pro 1:14  Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
Pro 1:15  My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:
Pro 1:16  For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
Pro 1:17  Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
Pro 1:18  And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their ownlives.
Pro 1:19  So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
