"The Simple Basics"
There are no simple solutions to society's problems
To try and
address these problems one must start with the Basics.In the beginning,God created mankind to have a relationship with him
and each other that is beyond what the natural man could ever understand. Adam and Eve chose to abandon this relationship
by disobeying the basic rules God had set forth for them to follow for a perfect relationship. In their act of disobedience,they
cut off this perfect relationship for something less.It was of their own choice that this happened.
make choices daily to either draw closer to God or to move farther away from Him.
The Bible states that the natural
man cannot understand the things of God. It is my belief that our society (in general) has moved away from the BASICS .This
is not an easy subject to cover without offending some people but it is not my intent to do so.The basics of any socitey to
prosper,and flourish begins with the basics of CARE and RESPECT for the rights of others. God is Love and without care and
respect for others God cannot be honored in our behavoir as a society. For several years, the projected attitude has been
an ( IN YOUR FACE) attitude.Be anything you want to be, which some may have interpedted to mean ( I can be a mobster,or a
professional thief,a hit man for hire,a prostitute,a pimp,a car jacker,a professional scammer, a porno film maker, and the
list goes on) everything that uses and degrades the dignity of another human being.These are the basics that causes a society
to fall as they did ROME.
The Bible states that in the last days the governments will be perplexed as to how to
deal with all the problems in society.The reasons for that perplexity in my opinion will be due to the violations of the
basics that makes a society function namely care and respect for one another.

Love of Money !
LOVE of money according to the Bible is the root of all evil. It also states that we wrestle ,not against flesh and blood
but against Spiritual Wickedness in high places. In my opinion, Love of Money and power are the reasons for the Spiritual
Wickedness in governments.
It is my opinion that if the heart of our government officials and Corporate America were
right with God, There would be no poverty in this country. I am not saying that the rich should give all their money to the
poor by any stretch of the imagination,but there would be an opportunity for everyone to work and make an American dream living.
Paul Harvey Writes:
We tried so hard to make things better for our kids that we made them worse. For my grandchildren, I'd like better. I'd really
like for them to know about hand me down clothes and homemade ice cream and leftover meat loaf sandwiches. I really would.
I hope you learn humility by being humiliated, and that you learn honesty by being cheated. I hope you learn to make your
own bed and mow the lawn and wash the car. And I really hope nobody gives you a brand new car when you are sixteen. It will
be good if at least one time you can see puppies born and your old dog put to sleep. I hope you get a black eye fighting for
something you believe in. I hope you have toshare a bedroom with your younger brother. And it's all right if you have to draw
a line down the middle of the room, but when he wants to crawl under the covers with you, let him. When you want to see a
movie and your little brother wants to tag along, I hope you'll let him. I hope you have to walk uphill to school with your
friends and that you live in a town where you can do it safely. On rainy days when you have to catch a ride, I hope you don't
ask your driver to drop you two blocks away so you won't be seen riding with someone as uncool as your Mom. If you want a
slingshot, I hope your Dad teaches you how to make one instead of buying one. I hope you learn to dig in the dirt and read
books. When you learn to use computers, I hope you also
learn to add and subtract in your head. I hope you get teased
by your friends when you have your first crush on a girl, and when you talk back to your mother that you learn what Ivory
soap tastes like. May you skin your knee climbing a mountain, burn your hand on a stove and stick your tongue on a frozen
flagpole. I don't care if you try a beer once, but I hope you don't like it. And if a friend offers you dope or a joint, I
hope you realize he is not your friend. I sure hope you make time to sit on a porch with your Grandpa and go fishing with
your Uncle. May you feel sorrow at a funeral and joy during the holidays. I hope your mother punishes you when you throw a
baseball through your neighbor's window and that she hugs you and kisses you
at Christmas time when you give her a plaster
mold of your hand. These things I wish for you--tough times and
disappointment, hard work and happiness. To me, its the
only way to appreciate life. Send this to all of your friends who mean the most to you. We secure our friends not by
favors but by doing them.
Paul Harvey...GOOD DAY
