Great Information Kevin, Good information today, it's good to know there is an organization to help parents with Social Services investigations.. If I might offer a little perspective of why investigations are at an all time high it might bring some clarity to the issue. Many years ago laws were passed to make health care workers, police, firefighters, school teachers and administrators mandated reporters of suspected child abuse in most states. These laws came about as the result of some legitimate cases going unreported where children were caused further harm or death. Ther penalties for not reporting include jail time, firing, and civil liability if you suspect abuse. They went so far as to mandate reporting if the child was home during a domestic dispute among the parents or guardians. This is the law of unintended consequences hard at work. Now the masses pay for the mistakes of a few. As you stated 80% of reports are unfounded. If the laws were written better and people didn't panic when a mistake is made we'd be better off. Unfortunately in a highly litigious society lawmakers run scared. Until discretion is given back to the professionals this will only get worse.
Great Series! A well thought out and faithfully taught rendering of the Book of Proverbs. Dr. Mazak faithfully administers the Word of God in this series. I've listened to all the messages a few times and they never get old.
Thoughtful and Insightful. I appreciate how you defined the terms before getting into the message. This is a great challenge today, too many Christians feel like they are missing out on some part of life if they don't see the latest movie, television show, songs, etc.. If they could understand how, as you laid it out, worldliness defiles and destroys perhaps they would be less interested. The guidelines are great and "We don't need as much entertainment as we are inclined to think we do."The choice is clear, love God or love the world.
