Thatís what Christians do now.

  In 1973 the Supreme Court said it was OK to kill unborn babies. Since then, we have killed more than the entire population of Canada. And it continues. A womanís choice? they didnít have a choice. It is called abortion.

  Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. Thatís what Christians do now.

  First it was dingy, dirty theaters. Then, convenience stores than grocery stores than on television. Now is in the home of millions via the Internet. It is called pornography.

  Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. Thatís what Christians do now.

   They call it no-fault. Why should we blame anyone when something so tragic happens. Havenít they already suffered enough? Half of the marriages in America end this way. The children suffered. The family broke down. It is called divorce.

  Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. Thatís what Christians do now.

  At one time it was a perversion. We kept it secret. We secured help and hope for those who practiced it. Now is praised. We have parade celebrating it, and elected officials give it their blessing. Now it is endowed with special privileges and protected by special laws. Even some church leaders and denominations praise it. It is called homosexuality.

 Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. Thatís what Christians do now.

  It used to be an embarrassment. A shame. Now a third of all births are to mothers who arenít married. Two-thirds of all African-American children are born into a home without a father. The state usually pays the tab. That is why we pay our taxes, so that government can take the place of parents. After all, government bureaucrats know much better how to raise children than parents to. It is called the illegitimacy.

 Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. Thatís what Christians do now.

  At one time it was wrong. But then the state decided to legalize it, promote it and tax it. It has ripped apart families and destroyed lives. But just look at all the money the state has raised. No longer do we have to teach our children to study and work hard. Now we teach them  they can get something for nothing. We spend millions encouraging people to join the fun and excitement. Just look at the big sums that people are winning. They will never have to work again! It is called gambling.

 Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. Thatís what Christians do now.

 Not long ago, Christians were the good guys. But now any positive image of Christians in movies or on TV is rare. We are usually depicted as the bad guys Ė greedy, narrow-minded hypocrites. The teacher canít have a Bible on her desk, but can have Playboy. We donít have Christmas and Easter holidays- just winter and spring break. We can use foul language. Itís called being tolerant.

 Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. Thatís what Christians do now.

 Yes, all these things came to pass within 30 years. Where were the Christians? Why, they were in church. All these things are for someone else to deal with. Times have   changed. Involvement has been replaced with apathy.

<>  But donít blame me. I didnít do anything. I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. Thatís what Christians do now.
