You don’t live in a bubble…

UnknownThere’s this meme getting around that goes like this:

Don’t like gay marriages? Don’t get one.

Don’t like cigarettes? Don’t smoke one.

Don’t like porn? Don’t watch it….

You get the picture, right? Anyway, this got me thinking about society and the choices we make. One thing I have learnt over the years….people don’t live in little bubbles, not even one person living on this planet has their own little solitary bubble! EVERY choice you make will directly or indirectly affect another person even if you think your choice is yours and yours alone to make…. AND even if that choice seems to be a HIGHLY personal choice. We are social creatures and there is no way around that. I think this is called the butterfly effect or something like that. We really must consider others when we make our own “so called” choices.

I can’t think of one thing that you could do in secret or in hiding that won’t affect another person, EVEN if other people don’t know about it, your secrets will cause of behaviours that will have repercussions for others.

The question about NOT having your rights taken away, is null and void. As people living in society our rights aren’t really ‘our’ rights at all. It’s all about what is best for society as a whole and for the individual. Porn destroys relationships and marriages, abortion destroys the child and the woman more often than not suffers with depression and grief that needs to be addressed as soon as possible, gay sexuality is counter-productive in its natural sense, also it’s a lifestyle that is wrought with problems.

  1. Thank you Virginia for highlighting the ultimate lie of ‘my rights’, this is where societies past and present have pressed the self destruct button which I think scripture warns of. Jeremiah 17 9 ‘The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked: who can Know it’ Evidently our Lord and Father does and has built consequences into our fallen universe that lead us into repentance or destruction. Oh that we would open our eyes and see our Redeemer!
