A recent mid-fifties photo showing New York skyscrapers lighting up with images of the Cross on Easter, comparing it with pictures of this year’s gay pride parade in the same city, pretty well reminds us of the moral state of the union.
Of all the things that threaten our nation: financial chaos and debt, racial unrest via the race baiters, home-grown terrorism, government out of control, a fifth column of anti-Americanism etc., our moral demise is the cornerstone of all of the above.
While never a bastion of righteousness, our people regardless of religious beliefs had a basic sense of right and wrong, instilled in their children as well. Today, we find at least, soft-core porn in every form of entertainment and advertising, with many parents having no consideration of protecting the innocence of their children.
Maybe even worse, many of those claiming salvation in Christ are so caught up (again) in end times and rapture foolishness, they see no need to be the light and salt we were called to be.
Do people believe that the explosion of violence, sexual assaults, teachers engaged in sex with students, child pornography, abortion, infanticide, homosexuality not just accepted but honored, all of this just happened by chance?
Consider the truth and simplicity of these words from the Bible; “be not deceived, God is not mocked, whatsoever a man sows, that shall he reap.”
And its harvest time in America.
