Quote of the Day by CKB

CK-Barrett--007

But the trouble comes when a human being becomes so devoted to
the exercise of his gifts that he becomes their slave. He no longer rules his environment,
his environment rules him. This is the real fault of a permissive society. How
many a young man and a young woman thought that sex would be fun, and went on
and on until they found themselves the slaves of it, always having to seek for some new

twist, some new position to stimulate and titillate? How many a person thought a bit
of drugs would be fun, and found himself the slave of a habit he could not control?
How many a person, how many a church member, set out to get himself a comfortable
life by buying and selling so as to make money, and in the end found himself the slave
of the money he had made? The horror of permissiveness is that it ends in bondage. — CKB
