Dr J B Chapman once said it…

Dr. J. B. Chapman once said, “it is better to build a fence around the top of a cliff than a hospital at the bottom.” We’ve all heard the same truth a thousand times expressed in an American proverb – “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Nevertheless, it seems that what we do in practice, falls far short of what we say in principle. While our prisons are overcrowded we see to it a New Testament is provided to every inmate on death row, but it is illegal to hand them out to elementary school children. Does that make any sense to you? It doesn’t to me. America is stumbling about in a spiritual fog and moral twilight. Traditional religious and moral values that have provided safeguards and prevention for generations have been shredded and tossed to the four winds. The result is we are reaping the rotten fruit of trees gone bad – AID’s, pedophilia, divorce, teen pregnancy, crowded prisons, pornography, drugs, abandoned children and much more. It is the direct result of saying one thing and doing another. Fence in the cliff and after awhile you can shut down the hospital. This is Just-a-Minute with Ed Boggess
