Hotel Replaces Bible With '50 Shades of Grey' - Yahoo! News

Hotel Replaces Bible With '50 Shades of Grey' 
"In this secular age it seems distinctly odd that anyone would expect to find a religious book in a hotel bedroom."
So what are guests who are not the book's "target audience" supposed to read on a visit to the Damson Dene Hotel? Denby isn't banishing the Bible altogether. Instead, he plans to keep a few copies behind the reception desk in case someone asks.
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20
I wish that I could say that I am shocked by this, but in reality - he is correct.  This is a secular age, a "post-Christian" society.  How sad!  We are in an age where right is wrong and wrong is right - everything is upside down.
We must decide what will be our standard.  How will we chart our path through a world that is twisting and turning?  How will we decide what is right and wrong?  One thing is very clear: we cannot depend on culture or mainstream to make those choices for us.  We cannot even rely upon our pastor, parents or friends.  We must make and individual choice.
You cannot allow your morals and values to be based on a sliding scale, they must be firmly rooted in something unchangeable.  I know where mine are rooted.  Do you?
"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."  Joshua 24:15
