65 years ago today, the U.S. Senate voted 65 to 22 to censure Sen. Joseph McCarthy, the Republican from Wisconsin, for “abusing” colleagues during his four-year anti-Communist crusade—a witch hunt that ruined the careers of many writers and artists. It was U.S. Army counsel Joseph Welch (pictured, left) who finally confronted McCarthy six months earlier, during the Senate hearings investigating Communist activity in America, by saying, “Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” At that point, the Senate gallery erupted in applause for the only brave soul to have finally stood up in the Congressional hearings against the “Red Scare” that had paralyzed the nation’s psyche.

When we commit our lives to God, then we become His beloved children. Part of being a child of God, is living like a child of God. God is not like the world, where we live in. He is not perverse, wicked, unrighteous ad selfish. He is the opposite of all that: loving, honest, pure and righteous. As our Father He asks us to learn to live like He is. He is light and calls us to walk in His light, as His true children. There is no greater joy than to walk in holiness, free from the oppression and perversion of sin and darkness. Walking in the light of Jesus Christ gives us great joy and peace.

"You shall make a window for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from the top; and set the door of the ark in the side of it; you shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. Scripture Art

Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people, and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. ...
