We live in an era of an ever increasing forced insanity to establishment a type of delusional SOCIAL CONSCIENCE.

We are taught rational thinking as in realizing one key will not fit all locks. This same rational thinking requires the conceptualization of boundaries for firm measurable guidelines, such adherence to traffic laws, medical standards and other required specifics necessary to healthy and safe civil social foundational principles. Certain issues require specific steps to meet the needs inherent for realities that all are to follow.

Let's take traffic laws: these were established to insure an efficient flow for THE MAJORITY not merely for a few. If you or I drive like idiots as in hogging the left lane which is for passing, turn without using blinkers, pass on the right on a two lane roadway, purposefully block traffic, go slower or faster than the posted speed limit, are we not putting others at risk?

If you or I concoct our own potions then get others to consume our elixir as some medical miracle cure without accountability to a quality standard and void of responsibility, are we not putting others at risk?

Say we dump our unfiltered sewage into creeks or rivers, are we not polluting and putting other's health at risk?

Rational thinking requires absolutes that adhere to guidelines. Social chaos grows in a culture void of rational absolutes.

The Church is to be a lighthouse without apology as it is to shines forth (promotes) a standard of moral and ethical behavior. The resulting SOCIAL CONSCIENCE conviction into a culture is based on absolutes from an Absolute God, at least that's what Christ absolutely came to do by dying on The Cross, John 3:16. (Answer this question with absolute conviction: Was Christ who He said He was or is the Gospel merely all some sentimental fairy tale?)

Today is no different than any other time in human history. The Church is NOT the judge, it's the messenger on authority of it's Founder, Jesus Christ. The Church's influence has been a part of the USA SOCIAL CONSCIENCE since those first Pilgrims knelt at Plymouth Rock. The Bible was the foundation of European morality and ethics which influenced those who arrived and established this USA. (For argument's sake, I invite you to research the founding of Harvard, Yale and Princeton by as many historically accurate sources that can be found.)

When The Church looses it's bearing it looses it's voice as surely as it looses it's ability to fulfill it's Divine Purpose. Most of us can say The LORD'S Prayer so do you remember the part where we pray, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven"?

SOCIAL CONSCIENCE that is void of absolutes is an asylum ruled with delusional expectations.

"CONSCIENCE" simply is that part of the mind that makes us aware of our actions as being right or wrong morally and ethically. In it's most basic form, even a dog knows if it's allowed to be on the couch or not! Surely, we have evolved to a higher level than a pack of running wild dogs!

To adapt a familiar slogan, "What's in your conscience?" (hrg)
