Safe Place with Ruth Graham

Safe Place with Ruth Graham

I am intolerant!

The word “tolerant” is used a lot these days. We are supposed to be tolerant of a wide range of things and if we aren’t were are deemed “racist” or some other ugly label. Well, I’VE HAD IT!

We are in a mess in this country because we have tolerated too much. We have tolerated the government spending more than it takes in…we have tolerated disrespect of authority…we have tolerated foul language…we have tolerated our borders being assaulted…we have tolerated bad behavior in public figures…we have tolerated the 10 Commandments being removed from halls of  justice…we have tolerated prayer being removed from our schools…we have tolerated immorality…we have tolerated “dirty” politics…we have tolerated immodesty….we have tolerated double standards….we have tolerated revisionist history…

I am intolerant of the intolerable. I am not ashamed to say it! Oh, I know there are those that would argue that everyone interprets things from their own paradigm. Phooey! We used to have standards that everyone understood. Having standards today is “intolerant”.  I, for one, miss the standards. It is like having  the painted lines on the highway. You know in which lane to be so things don’t get chaotic. What if the Olympics said everything is relative and we want to be “inclusive”? The games would soon be irrelevant. Our society is becoming irrelevant. 

We need standards. We thrive in that enviornment – our society is dying in this “tolerant” and “inclusive” age. We can stop it but it’s up to us – we need to become more intolerant.

Mystery
I love a good mystery. When I travel I always take one along to read - it's a form of escape for me. Some of my favorite mystery writers are Ted Bell, David Baldacci, Clive Cussler, John Grisham, James Paterson. As a matter of fact, last night I ...

Our Future
I think I shared with you last year that I decided to read through the Chronological Bible in 2015. I did. I heartily recommend it. The year's reading ends in Revelation. With all the tragic news of 2015, all the uncertainty, all the ...

New Year Plans
We are entering a new year. We may have plans, goals, and resolutions but have we stopped to invite God into the process? It is good to plan the year. Ask Him meet us in it – to dwell with us there. That’s not only a good thing but a wise ...

When God is Silent
It had been a long 400 years of silence. Malachi had been the last “official” word from God. Now the silence was deafening. Life went on but where was God? Did He care? Did He leave them? Did He forget them? Had He washed His hands of them? ...
