Re: Chaplains Corner
What is it with the word "adult"?
There is adultery, which no one over 21 wants to be associated with.
There is adulterated, which means polluted and impure.
As if this weren't enough, there are all those sleazy movies being made that are called "adult", or "mature", when in reality they are designed to attract only the most juvenile of customers.
Why doesn't this bother us? People get offended for ANY kind of insult, real or imagined, for being stereo-typed in any way, for ANY association wrongly made between them and something distasteful, and yet here we are as adults, not saying a thing about what is being called "adult" entertainment. All of us adults ought to be ticked off that the word "adult" has come to be used in this manner.
Let them find some other name for this garbage, something more honest.
How about "Garbage"?
The Word of God tells us that we should not follow the world:
Romans 12:2 (KJV);
"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
And it tells us that we should grow up, and cease acting like children:
1 Corinthians 13:11 (KJV);
"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things."
Finally, it tells us that these times we are in were foreseen and recorded two thousand years ago:
2 Timothy 3:1-2 (KJV);
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,"
Isn't that the unadulterated truth?
God bless you, guys!
