Has there ever been a generation that did not have some form of "Rebellion" within its makeup ... in some form or another?  We see it with Adam and Eve when they chose to believe their abiliy to "see" instead of following what God said.  We see it in the second generation in Cain and Able in which Cain chose to define worship in his own way instead of following God's plan.  

We can fast-forward to the Israelite slaves in Egypt.  It took four hundred years of captivity to even begin to make into a nation a people who were not a nation.  Add to this their forty-year wilderness wondering to the Promised Land in which we see rebellion played out throughout the entire journey.  

Would any succeeding generation of any culture have made the journey in any other way?  I don't think so.  How many of us would have died in the Wilderness thus being prevented from entering our Promised Land because of our own rebellion?  How many of us in this generation will spend entire lives in our own Wilderness Journey and thus miss our Promised Land as well?  

I cast no aspersions toward anyone ... or any generation.  Each generation seems to have inherited and then expressed in it's own way that sense of rebellion against someghing ... or someone ... even God.  

In today's broadcast, I will look at what rebellion is, where it comes from and the ways that it manifests and impacts us and those we love the most ... and, of course, what we can do about it.
