The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Paul Warned Timothy that the world would wax worse and worse (2 Timothy 3:13). His prophecy is certainly being fulfilled in today’s time. However, there is still some good, and for it we are thankful. We see the good, the bad and the ugly in today’s America.

There is usually a mixture of the good, the bad, and the ugly in most situations that develop from time to time.

However, there are other hidden things that have not been brought to light. In my opinion, and others, this may be only the tip of the iceburg. From what I’m hearing there may be more to come. When power is abused, especially the waste of taxpayers dollars, this constitutes the bad.

Error in Last Week’s Article

anity is not fading.  Christianity, by the way, is the only true religion.  All

others are man-made.

Sometimes silence is wise. Job speaks of the wisdom of silence (Job 13:5). Solomon wrote that there is such a thing as too much talk (Eccles 5:3). We can sum it up by saying what Solomon wrote in Proverbs 10:14: “A wise man holds his tongue.”
