Purity vs. Immodesty

Our world is in the middle of a "culture war" that apparently does not spare even the healthy juice aisle at the grocery store.  In the left corner, at 16.0 fluid ounces each, is "purity"!  In the right corner, at 15.2 fl. oz. each, is... umm... a juice that should be wearing more clothes. ;)  While the name of this particular product was, no doubt, tongue-in-cheek, it does reflect a continuing deterioration of what our culture perceives as acceptable.  I grow increasingly disgusted at how the world (the entertainment industry, in particular) pushes lewd appearance and behavior as attractive.

[Let not your adorning] be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price (1 Peter 3:3-4).

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Is. 5:20)

Crushed and Melted

I took this picture outside a Chili's restaurant in our area.  I love it when businesses use (clean) humor to add a little fun to their atmosphere!  But along with a chuckle, a Biblically-minded Christian (is there any other kind?) may also get a reminder of what Jesus said will happen to those who refuse His precious gift of salvation.

And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner? Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder (Luke 20:17-18).

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire (Rev. 20-15).
