I've been using Norton Internet Security now for at least 10-years and have never had a problem. I've watched this product evolve over the years to it's present form. It does background scans so you can continue doing what you're doing. It warns you of threats. It even provides a map of your home network, complete with IP and MAC addresses. I tried McAfee once, and I'll never go back! I've also tried CA (Computer Associates), but nothing beats Norton Internet Security for ease of installation and use.
Norton Antivirus sets the standard in Antivirus programs, and works great! You really need a good powerful antivirus program to protect against the many viruses on the internet that can easily damage your computers. It scans constantly for any viruses and spyware and warns when there's any problem or a potential issue. And at this low price you can protect up to 5 computers or tablets for a full year.
Understand, this is most definitely a book based on Christian values and teachings (a very good thing, especially in the world we live in today). But Christianity is not the sole focus, in fact it is far more dialed in on the American Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and how we have strayed from how we were intended to live, and protect our freedoms. I will be honest, the first half of this book had me worried, depressed, and scared for my family, friends and myself. I am very active in politics, and do plenty of research both on politicians and on issues, and frankly this book exposed things about our government, and our so called public servants that in years past would have gotten them thrown in prison for treason AND it gives you all the reference points you need to hunt up the facts yourself should you choose to do so. The solution, which I won't spoil for anyone that is thinking of reading this book, was a very pleasant surprise, and one I intend to pursue within my community. I do believe this is an important piece of writing that anyone that loves God, Country, Freedom and Family should take the time to read, and read again. Fantastic work.
We bought this Britax B-Agile after searching all brand and after reading lots of review. Even we are ready to pay much more for the best stroller for our first baby... we pick up this stroller and feel really happy we did.
It's light weight make it a winner. Excellent design and very good function
It should be the best stroller for the money
Book Review of David Platt's "Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream"
I have to say that I truly enjoyed reading this book by David Platt. I honestly was hesitant to read it at first, because I knew that Platt would challenge me to go against the status quo in my faith. I heard about the book from friends, and so it came highly recommended.
Platt makes a strong case for our compromise in the North American church with the values of American culture. That value is of course the American Dream. The term "American Dream" actually has an interesting history. The phrase was first used by a writer and historian by the name of James Truslow Adams in his 1931 book "Epic of America". He defines the American Dream in this way:
"It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position."
So of course the American Dream concerns wealth and material possessions, but it also includes the opportunity to succeed. There is the freedom to "attain to the fullest stature". In other words class does not define the American man or woman, but each one takes responsibility for his or her success.
I think Platt rightly criticizes our acceptance of the American Dream uncritically. We fail to filter out those excesses that have come to define what this means. There are actually good parts of the American dream. Part of that is working hard. The Bible certainly endorses hard work. There is also the idea of working to support one's family. We have responsibilities to both family and society as a whole.
The problem comes in when we take these normal, Biblical responsibilities and make them more important than our relationship with God. It happens when we put material comforts above our duty to our fellow man. It happens when we fail to give God what he asks of us. It happens when we put the priorities of the American Dream ahead of our discipleship. The Lord demands all of our lives - our time, our talent and our treasure. He commands us to give up our rights for the sake of the Kingdom of God. We are called to make sacrifices for God's kingdom.
Discipleship does make demands of us. It does require radical obedience. It does require us to take up our cross and follow Jesus. This is the main message of this book. Platt calls us to consider carefully our discipleship. As it says in Hebrews 12:1, we must cast aside every weight of sin and run the race set before us.
This book has the potential to help the church to refocus on the kingdom and make it our number one priority. What are some ways we can do this? We do this through personal piety, doing good works, caring for the poor and proclaiming the gospel both at home and in the world at large.
Platt attempts to challenge the status quo in this book, and he certainly succeeds. I won't spoil the personal challenge that Platt lays down, but suffice it to say that I think the implementation of these things will indeed change us.
