Proverbs 20:1 ESV
Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.
Mercy Me- Hold Fast- Recovery Video
Before I became a Christian I lead a decadent life with few constraints; ultimately this lead to several negative challenges in my life – I failed to correct my faults. Finally admitting I was a sinner unable to control my sin nature without help. I turned my life over to GOD through Jesus Christ. Sure life became better but consequences still arouse and occasionally I needed to remind myself what my weaknesses were and that it was GOD not me that made the recovery possible.
Finally after more than thirty-five years my most difficult battles seem to be in the past.
Lisa Scinta – Addiction Lyrics Video
I must not drop my guard: In a culture that seems to be challenged more and more by substance abuse, depression and declining morals my only hope for a better life, the resistance to temptation is my trust in Jesus and the Word of GOD as my guide.
Like minded Christians can be of enormous help
Hebrews 10:25 ESV
Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Help one another, study The Bible together and encourage each other. If one stumbles prop him or her up.
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
Excerpt from a secular blog of mine: Odd Thoughts (with Christian influence)
What is a Realistic Education (Biblical Stewadship; resonsibility)
Somewhere along the way Americans seem to have lost their understanding of what a useful education really is: A realistic education prepares a student for becoming a productive citizen with realistic expectations, skills for industry and in home life and, an understanding of right and wrong. Knowledge of our political system with its checks and balances with accurate expectations as a citizen. What do I believe about this topic?
First there is no one route to success, second few people will achieve recognition for some esoteric or exotic invention. The overwhelming majority of our citizens will work for a living and mange their affairs in a responsible way which yields satisfaction (contentment and happiness). What kind of knowledge and training do people need?
There is more than one (or just a few) paths
A. Basics: Language – reading and writing and, math skills.
B. Advanced Basics:

- Detailed knowledge of our political system with checks and balances and relationship of majorities to minorities; our economic system.

C. Advanced Studies: in compact programs, vocational schools, military service and then Colleges or Universities.
