The first round of debates among twenty of the Democratic Party’s candidates for president is over. As today’s Wall Street Journal notes, Joe Biden was the focus of much of last night’s debate as the candidates sparred over “the role of government in health care and other issues.”
In other news, the United Methodist Church appears to be moving closer to a formal split four months after the denomination strengthened its ban on LGBT clergy and same-sex weddings. The House Committee on Education and Labor discussed this week whether religious freedoms should be curtailed with regard to sexual freedom and other “civil rights.”
And San Diego, known as one of America’s most beautiful cities, is also making news because of a Department of Justice study estimating that its underground sex trafficking economy exceeds $800 million a year.

I would like to offer you some really good news today. But to get there, we need to discuss the bad news.
Political vitriol, sexual immorality, threats to our religious freedoms, and the escalation of sex trafficking are just some of the challenges we face today. If you’re like me, reading the news can be discouraging on two levels.
One: Our culture’s incessantly immoral trajectory can drag us along with it.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
