Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
Every Christian has her or his own perspective on Biblical interpretation, and it is not the purpose of this article to get into the differences about which is better. However, there are certain fundamental principles that are increasingly overlooked, and this has eternal implications for each of us. It seems as though there has developed an a la carte attitude toward Biblical admonitions, as though if one is simply a “good” person, salvation will be achieved.
For Catholics, this attitude arose after Vatican II, with theologians saying simply to “let your conscience be your guide.” Thus, one could find pro-abortion rights Catholics who were not excommunicated, even though The Holy Bible clearly forbids the shedding of “innocent blood.”
For Protestants, most agree that one must “accept” Christ in order to be saved. However, preachers today don’t remind their church members that Christ is not only the Son of God, but also the Word of God. That means when one “accepts” Christ, one also accepts the Word of God (Biblical teaching of right and wrong). Preachers then don’t emphasize the acceptance must be 100%. One cannot “accept” Christ, for example, and be a fornicator (whom The Holy Bible says will go to Hell). One’s “acceptance” must include Christ as Lord of one’s sexual life as well as other private and business activities. This lesson is brought home in Matthew 25:44 when Jesus is speaking to those who believe they accepted Him as “Lord,” but who didn’t minister to those in need.
Regarding those few who read my earlier NewsWithViews column and decided to help with a medical need, I want to express my sincere appreciation. Specifically, my mother broke her femur in five places. Because of the stress in caring for her, I was hospitalized for two days, during which time my mother fell at night trying to go to the bathroom and suffered a compression fracture of the back. She is now having expensive 24-hour-a-day care.
If it weren’t for my mother’s research and diligence all the readers of NewsWithViews could have been under the horrors of socialized medicine and paid thousands of dollars more in taxes for the past 25 years. If you think this is hard to believe, just look at the article reproduced here which I wrote in 1979 based on my mother’s information.
The newspaper referred to me as a “leading opponent” of the New Generation Act, the federal HEW model for child health for the nation. (Mrs. Andrew Young, working with President Carter, requested copies for each state.) All families would report to a “health care home,” not your local doctor’s office. We all have my mother to thank for preventing this expensive socialist nightmare from being imposed on us.
[Special note from the friend who typed in this article for Dr. Cuddy while he is at home caring for his mother:
Peggy Cuddy has been one of the premier researchers on the New Age movement. Her research has impacted the lives of thousands of Christians and Americans, warning them of the multifaceted dangers of the occult. You can see her fascinating lifetime project chronicling the intricate web of the Aquarian Conspiracy.
Peggy has influenced the work of Charlotte Iserbyt, Berit Kjos, Sarah Leslie and a host of other conservative writers and researchers. She has given us her eagle eye for editing, has been generous with her time and research archives, and has served as a walking encyclopedia on the history of the government’s intrusion on the family. It is not an exaggeration to say that this lady has saved all of us from many socialist nightmares.
May God lead you to help this dear saint in her hour of need.]
