Lost the plot!

Have you seen the latest? It has probably been going on for years but it is certainly on the rise. Dog buggies, they used to be for dogs that couldn't walk, but I have seen them walking along the prom with their dog buggy and the dogs are running around. While doing some research on these (i googled it) I came across doggy back packs, if you don't want to push your dog around you can stick it in a doggy back pack. The world has lost the plot, at least the Western world has lost the plot, and nowadays they don't have just one dog they have two or three, well you don't want your dog to get 'only child syndrome'. PDSA, Cat Protection, The Donkey Sanctuary and various other charities, all supporting animals, now if people want to support animal charities that is their choice, but then they claim Gift Aid, which means tax money that should be going to support humans, is going to animals and the tax payer has to stump up. We seem to be getting more and more animal orientated, everywhere has to be dog friendly, (one pub near us is 'super dog friendly' too bad if you don't have a 'super dog') they even take their dogs shopping, they take them in for coffee, into restaraunts and even into churches. We have three regular dogs visit our church although it has to be said Roger hasn't been for a while, somebody probably offended him. Back in the day you wouldn't have dreamed of taking a dog to church, they are animals for goodness sake. Meanwhile, you never seem to see middle eastern people walking about with dogs, and they certainly don't have them in buggies. They have children, lots of children, they are family orientated and to them family means humans. Even when they have been in the UK for generations you seldom see them, or black people, with dogs. It is time we got back to being family (humans that is) orientated. We will regret it in years to come, children will grow up to vote, cats and dogs can't vote (yet!), different cultures vote for their own culture and while we share a lot of shared values, western values are different from eastern values, not always in a good way, but in a way that allows freedom to make our own choices, good or bad, that is the way God has made the earth to be, the Christian God that is. The God with a Son named Jesus, has given us all freewill to make choices, good or bad, in order that we can choose life and love. Just the same as you can't force someone to love you, that could never be love, God will never force you to love Him. Being a Christian is a choice, you can't be forced to be one, you can't be born one, you are not one because you were born in a Christian country, you can only be a follower of Jesus, a Christian, by choice. God has given us the freewill too choose Him and when you do, you will be 'Born Again' a new creation, in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:17 New King James Version

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

No offense Franky and Alfie, but your not a patch on the grandsons, Rufus and Axel.
