Subject: There was a time


There was a time when the state and federal government—except for maybe in times of war—pretty much stayed out of our way.


In those days the church helped reinforce community standards and the integrity of government.


Not anymore, that time is long gone...and increasingly as I view our society and how the church and our communities are responding, it seems pretty FAR FETCHED to think the great experiment that made America so great is coming back.


There was a time when we respected, not feared government...but that was a long time ago.
