Camp Vegas

In addition to encountering death this week (see previous post), we've encountered alot of brokenness with couples we know. It's hard for me to not just get angry at folks,. . . . my past has alot of this kind of brokenness in it, and so I have a bit of quick trigger on some of these issues.

"Camp Vegas" doesn't help (anyone else sick of this one??) . From the makers of the ubiquitous "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas", we get more morally bankrupt advertising. Now, I'm not expecting an ad campaign from Las Vegas to be spiritually edifying or anything. The writers are brilliant advertisers, to be sure, and I wouldn't expect much different.

But, since this is my blog, and since I'm a little angry about it this week, I'm going to let everyone in on the secret at what you'll find, should you attend "Camp Vegas", (not Las Vegas in general. . .but the stuff that they're selling). This is top secret stuff, the only place to find out what you get there is if you look at the best-selling book in the history of the World, written by the Author of Time and Space, and given to the wisest person who ever lived. If you had trouble finding it, here you go:

Proverbs 5:3-9 (New International Version)

3 For the lips of an adulteress drip honey,
and her speech is smoother than oil;4 but in the end she is bitter as gall,
sharp as a double-edged sword.5 Her feet go down to death;
her steps lead straight to the grave. a]">[a] 6 She gives no thought to the way of life;
her paths are crooked, but she knows it not.7 Now then, my sons, listen to me;
do not turn aside from what I say.8 Keep to a path far from her,
do not go near the door of her house,9 lest you give your best strength to others
and your years to one who is cruel,

Proverbs 7:22-27 (New International Version)

25 Do not let your heart turn to her ways
or stray into her paths. 26 Many are the victims she has brought down;
her slain are a mighty throng.27 Her house is a highway to the grave, c]">[c]
leading down to the chambers of death.

Proverbs 9:13-15 (New International Version)

13 The woman Folly is loud;
she is undisciplined and without knowledge.14 She sits at the door of her house,
on a seat at the highest point of the city, 15 calling out to those who pass by,
who go straight on their way.

Proverbs 6:25-27 (New International Version)

25 Do not lust in your heart after her beauty
or let her captivate you with her eyes,26 for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress preys upon your very life.27 Can a man scoop fire into his lap
without his clothes being burned?

Have fun at Camp Vegas Loafy!

BTW what does 'archipeligianness' mean anyway?
