Pride Goes Before a Fall

Would someone like to explain to me what is happening in this world?  I am still overwhelmed with the insanity that I see all around me.  I cannot speak about most of the world, but I can definitely speak about the US and the UK, and Western Europe.  

Everywhere I look, I see signs of madness:  People having literally lost their minds (I am constantly reminded of the Gadarene demoniac here), and running to and fro, trying to tell the rest of us that evil is good and good is evil.  Christians have been warned about this, many times over.  We KNOW this is going to happen, and in fact, has happened repeatedly in history.  But it is always shocking, I think.

Today, I was doing my online grocery order at Asda (a subsidiary of WalMart, for those who don't know), and I suddenly realised that the ASDA logo at the top of the page was rainbow coloured.  Sigh.  I hovered over it, already knowing what it was:  "PRIDE" it said.  Shortly thereafter, I was on the Argos website looking for a lamp.  And I realise, the ARGOS logo at the top of the page is rainbow coloured.  

So, I look it up in the news, to try to get a handle on what is going on.  Mercifully, I had somehow not realised that June is "pride"month (fill in the blank for whatever LBGT initial you happen to be, I guess).  I found a HUGE list of companies in the UK who are not only supporting LBGT whatever, whatever, stupid, stupid, stupid -- but they are also donating money to these people.  For crying out loud!  What on earth is there to be proud of?  And let us not forget:  Pride does indeed go before a fall.  ALL of humanity's sins can be traced back to pride, starting with the fall of Lucifer and the episode in the Garden.  

The silent majority -- or maybe we really are just the silent and too trusting minority now -- has been silent for too long.  These "pride" people can scream and yell in your face (whether we're talking BLM or gay pride, it all comes down to the same thing -- evil), and we are supposed to just acquiesce and tolerate things?  No.  NO NO NO.  I will not engage, nor will I scream and yell, and I will not attack any single person.  BUT... I spend money, too, and I WILL boycott the "pride" businesses.  When have they ever done anything for me, other than take my money?  I have had enough.

Here is the list:
  • Zenni
  • Fabletics
  • Banana Republic
  • Adidas
  • Doc Martens
  • Apple
  • Asda
  • Argos
  • Converse
  • ASOS
  • NIke
  • Bonobos
  • Sephora
  • Diesel
  • Visa
  • Charles Schwab
  • Uber
  • Ikea
  • Microsoft
  • Paypal
  • Coca Cola
  • Gap
  • HP
  • Harry's
  • Absolut
  • Disney
  • Starbucks
  • Lush
  • Listerine
  • Reebok
  • Calvin Klein
  • Rosetta Stone
  • Levis
  • H&M
  • Target
  • Ralph Lauren
  • Smirnoff
  • Megabus
  • Sperry
  • Fossil
  • Macy's
  • T-Mobile
  • TopShop
This is by no means an exhaustive list.  What in the world are we coming to?  And don't tell me that this is an indication of everyone becoming friendlier and more inclusive.  I don't buy that for a minute.  The people supporting this perversion are definitely NOT inclusive of me or people like me.  In fact, they are often quite aggressive and abusive, and love to tell us how stupid we are.  So I repeat, what is there to be proud of?  That you've fallen so far off the track that you can't even tell right from wrong? 

I am over it.  And I am not silent.  Even if I stand alone, I will not be silent when I see things which are abberations and are abhorent, and are steam-rollering right over the top of us.  

Even my little list is pretty extensive.  It makes you think, doesn't it?   If one is not vigilant, all things evil seep in through tiniest little cracks in covert ways until, before you know it, all of society has been changed and evil is dominant.  Look around you.  It should be obvious.

Indeed, pride does go before a fall. We can oppose it, and should, but at the same time, as we read Bible prophecy we understand this is how it will be till Jesus comes for His Church.

I guess the big surprise for me is that although I knew the world would go this way, I didn't think it would happen during my lifetime. We've literally got "front row seats!"

Your homeland is hot now, summer has arrived, so I'm grateful for air conditioning. The TV weatherman says "This is just Florida being Florida." He's right.

How warm do your summers get in Scotland?
