The LORD judges the peoples; judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and according to the integrity that is in me.

READER'S DIGEST once ran an article on automobile repair shops. When 226 garages were randomly selected to repair a car with only a missing sparkplug wire, 74 percent (167) repaired something not broken or did nothing and charged up to $500. What is happening? The loss of personal integrity is reaching critical mass.

Some say it began it began in the 1960s when social morality began displacing personal morality. There was a reaction during the sixties to smug Christians who said they were moral people--who kept the Ten Commandments--but were insensitive to the plight of African-Americans, women, etc. So the pendulum swung from personal accountability to compassion--from keeping the Ten Commandments to having a strong social conscience. And the results were predictable. Divorces soared, as did out-of-wedlock births. Meanwhile ethics in business turned south. Much of the conservative political tide in our nation is the result of the perception that as a nation we are headed toward moral chaos. But, fortunately for all of us, there are still people who stand for personal integrity.
