Pure

About 40 years ago I memorized Psalm 119:9, 11.  Purity, holiness, is not valued much in this culture anymore.  We have since the 60’s entered into a cultural death spiral that is at best alarming.  Jim Dobson documents the details in his blog today.
In the midst of a culture that does not value purity, how do we stay pure?  Thoughts at DTTB.
I know of at least two unmarried young people who are professing Christians who are living with their significant other’s.  One of them is active in one of the programs in a large church in our area.  These are “good” kids.  But as professing believers they are not following what their Lord has commanded.

At least part of the reason is that they are not in the Word and allowing the Word to inform their behavior.  They have embraced the world’s definition of what is right and good.  They have allowed the world to squeeze them into its mold, Romans 12:2, Phillips.

Psalm 119:9, 11, is still true.  40 years after I memorized it and several thousand years after it was penned by David, the Word is the only way that we will be able to live a pure, holy, life.

You can try other things.  They won’t work.
