A public Christmaswouldn't be theend of the world

(Continued)

Or, could it be so simple that a public belief in Christ and God, and the adherence to his teaching, means there is a higher power than government? With a God, there is an absolute, not a relative right and wrong, and judgments on that behavior. Furthermore, the consequences of bad behavior must be borne personally.

Would Christ have approved of single parenthood, legalizing drugs, pornography, living beyond one’s means, foul language, abortion on demand, (need I add more?)

WWJD? What would Jesus do, in 21st century America? I don’t profess to know, but I’d bet “the Carpenter cleared the temple” would be an understatement.
