SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS
By Coach Dave Daubenmire

The world seems to be getting crazier and crazier everyday, and as I look out my window at the fresh covering of snow I am having trouble focusing on a hard-hitting commentary for today.
There are so many thoughts running through my mind.
So, rather than write on a particular topic, I thought I would take this time to dump some of my random thoughts onto the paper today. I could easily do a commentary on every one. I pray they stimulate your soul.
1. America’s problems are not political, they are spiritual. After two generations of teaching our kids that we evolved from apes, that life has no meaning, and that there is no right or wrong we have reaped the whirlwind of that folly.
2. Evil really does exist. Sometimes it manifests itself in obvious ways, but more often than not the advancement of evil travels like carbon monoxide…invisibly invading even the most safest of environments. Evil is subtle, it doesn’t always wear horns and carry a pitchfork. Jesus warned us that even “the very elect would be deceived.”
3. Self-identified Christians are some of the most deceived people in America. Instead of trusting in Jesus and the precepts that He laid out in the Bible, we have trusted instead in the wisdom of man. Very few “Christians” can quote the Word, defend the Word, or obey the Word.
4. Can anyone tell me anything about John Rolls, the recently killed Judge in Arizona? While all of the attention has been given to a still-alive Congresswoman very little information has appeared in the media regarding this judge who was killed. I find that odd. Where was he wounded, does he have a family, did any bystanders administer care to him? Who decided that a living Congressman was more note worthy than a dead Federal Judge?
