Like you I read a lot about the current financial mess. Experts are all over the place in describing what should be done and whether Treasury Secretary Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke are doing the right thing. With the experts divided it is s sign we are in uncharted water. They are making it up as they go.

What would happen if the U.S. dollar was no longer the world”s reserve currency?

I have been thinking about that question this week in light of the Russian and Chinese calls for a new world currency to replace the dominant role the dollar has had since the end of World War II. This is all we have known. We have enjoyed the world’s highest living standard due to the stability and wealth created by America’s dominate economic role in the world.

A new survey indicates a rise in secularzation among those age 21-45. They are increasingly irreligious and not interested in attending church.

Secularism seems to be on the march in America. This week, a new study from the Program on Public Values at Trinity College found that the number of Americans claiming no religion now stands at 15%, up from 8% in 1990 and 2% in 1962.

I arrived late last night at my hotel room and could not sleep. Television is a poor substitute for sleep but it was the only thing available. CNBC had one of their specials about the financial crisis.

The way the Marines take care of their business is a refreshing tonic in an age where few are held accountable for their actions.

I wrote a few days ago about the movie, “Taking Chance” that tells the meticulous care and honor the Marines give to their fallen. Here is another story about how the Marines take responsibility for their own mistakes.

I recently read Max Boot’s “War Made New” as background for a Beyond Today telecast called “And Wars Shall Increase”. The book is a survey of five hundred years of military technology. Near the end Boot makes a statement about the impact of American naval technology and power projection that clicked with a Biblical prophecy.

Tonight I watched the HBO movie Taking Chance. I knew it would be a powerful movie when I saw the trailer a couple of weeks ago. It was that and much more. When you watch it you will never think of war and sacrifice the same as before.

Wow Robert you have gone through a lot! I am so sorry. I cannot imagine having to bury a child or a grandchild. I am hoping the rest of your years will be filled with much joy. BTW 50 was hard for me as well. But I can honestly say the last ten years have been the best.

An excellent article! Thank you very much. Already a mind set for or against anything or anyone can alter our thinking about a person or thing. Very well put, Steven. Everyone of us needs to have an open mind, especially when it comes to God's Word. It could be that we have heard or read something that sticks in our minds...

Thank you Mr. Kubik for a wonderful blog. This is one of the areas that I struggle with daily in my spiritual life. I just don't seem to know how to pray properly, with the heart and attitude that God expects from me.

This is a great start to inform us of the truth. I feel expounding more deeply on the man maid holydays, such as their origin would help us understand why we should not honor them.
