First Point
Remember your
Creator.
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
“But if I were asked today to
formulate as concisely as possible
the main cause of the ruinous
Revolution that swallowed up
some sixty million of our people, I
could not put it more accurately
than to repeat:
Aleksandr
Solzhenitsyn
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Men have forgotten
God; that's why all
this has happened.”
Aleksandr
Solzhenitsyn
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Ecclesiastes 12:1
Remember also your Creator in the days
of your youth, before the evil days come
and the years draw near when you will
say, "I have no delight in them"
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Second Point
Remember your
greatest challenge.
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
“The concepts of good
and evil have been
ridiculed for several
centuries; banished from
common use...Aleksandr
Solzhenitsyn
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
It has become
embarrassing to state
that evil makes its home
in the individual human
heart…”Aleksandr
Solzhenitsyn
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Jeremiah 17:9
The heart is deceitful above all
things, and desperately sick;
who can understand it?
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Third Point
Remember what’s
truly important.
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
“Our life consists not in the
pursuit of material success
but in the quest for worthy
spiritual growth.
Aleksandr
Solzhenitsyn
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Our entire earthly existence is but a
transitional stage in the movement
toward something higher, and we
must not stumble and fall, nor must
we linger fruitlessly on one rung of
the ladder.
Material laws alone do not explain our
life or give it direction. The laws of
physics and physiology will never reveal
the indisputable manner in which the
Creator constantly, day in and day out,
participates in the life of each of us,
unfailingly granting us the energy of
existence; when this assistance leaves
us, we die.”
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Matthew 6
19 “Do not lay up for yourselves
treasures on earth, where moth and
rustdestroy and where thieves break
in and steal,
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Matthew 6
20 but lay up for yourselves treasures
in heaven, where neither moth nor
rust destroys and where thieves do
not break in and steal.
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Matthew 6
21 For where your treasure is, there
your heart will be also.
Three Lessons to Cling To
Throughout Your Life
Ecclesiastes 2
26 For to the one who pleases him God has
given wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to
the sinner he has given the business of
gathering and collecting, only to give to one
who pleases God. This also is vanity and a
striving after wind.
Philippians 4
11b for I have learned in whatever situation I
am to be content. 12 I know how to be
brought low, and I know how to abound. In
any and every circumstance, I have learned
the secret of facing plenty and hunger,
abundance and need. 13 I can do all things
through him who strengthens me.

Editor's Notes

  1. The Christian share of the population is declining and the religiously unaffiliated share is growing in all four major geographic regions of the country.
  2. Religious “nones” now constitute 19% of the adult population in the South (up from 13% in 2007), 22% of the population in the Midwest (up from 16%), 25% of the population in the Northeast (up from 16%) and 28% of the population in the West (up from 21%).
  3. In the West, the religiously unaffiliated are more numerous than Catholics (23%), evangelicals (22%) and every other religious group.
  4. More than a quarter of men (27%) now describe themselves as religiously unaffiliated, up from 20% in 2007. Fewer women are religious “nones,” but the religiously unaffiliated are growing among women at about the same rate as among men. Nearly one-in-five women (19%) now describe themselves as religiously unaffiliated, up from 13% in 2007.
  5. While the mainline Protestant share of the population is significantly smaller today than it was in 2007, the evangelical Protestant share of the population has remained comparatively stable (ticking downward slightly from 26.3% to 25.4% of the population).
  6. As a result, evangelicals now constitute a clear majority (55%) of all U.S. Protestants. In 2007, roughly half of Protestants (51%) identified with evangelical churches.
  7. The share of the public identifying with religions other than Christianity has grown from 4.7% in 2007 to 5.9% in 2014. Gains were most pronounced among Muslims (who accounted for 0.4% of respondents in the 2007 Religious Landscape Study and 0.9% in 2014) and Hindus (0.4% in 2007 vs. 0.7% in 2014).12
  8. First Point Remember your Creator.
  9. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: Templeton Address “But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous Revolution that swallowed up some sixty million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: 
  10. Men have forgotten God; that's why all this has happened.”
  11. Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near when you will say, "I have no delight in them"
  12. Second Point Remember your greatest challenge.
  13. “The concepts of good and evil have been ridiculed for several centuries; banished from common use...
  14. It has become embarrassing to state that evil makes its home in the individual human heart…” (Solzhenitsyn)
  15. Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?
  16. Third Point Remember what’s truly important.
  17. “Our life consists not in the pursuit of material success but in the quest for worthy spiritual growth.
  18. Our entire earthly existence is but a transitional stage in the movement toward something higher, and we must not stumble and fall, nor must we linger fruitlessly on one rung of the ladder.
  19. Material laws alone do not explain our life or give it direction. The laws of physics and physiology will never reveal the indisputable manner in which the Creator constantly, day in and day out, participates in the life of each of us, unfailingly granting us the energy of existence; when this assistance leaves us, we die.”

  21. 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  
  22. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
