According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), 3.5 of every five Americans are now infected by a STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease). If this is true then the future consequences of this trend is staggering. Considering the ongoing sensationalism of sexuality in the media it would seem that this will only get worse. We are actually talking about an epidemic. This is further proof of the devastating consequences of the sexual revolution.
For the wages of sin is death… Romans 6:23 (NKJV) There is a very good reason that God instituted absolute moral boundaries in Scripture. When we fail to give heed to God’s commandments we face the consequences of our own making.
Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the Lord, They would have none of my counsel And despised my every rebuke. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, And be filled to the full with their own fancies. For the turning away of the simple will slay them, And the complacency of fools will destroy them; But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, And will be secure, without fear of evil.” Proverbs 1:29-33 (NIV)
Sexual immorality caries with it many very dire results that can last for many generations if not brought under control by the precepts of God’s word, the Bible.
Consider that we have aborted over 50 million babies in the womb, primarily because people refuse to take responsibility for their sexual behavior. Now thanks to human greed and selfishness Planned Parenthood and others, are pushing to legalize the killing of babies that are born alive as a result of a botched abortion.
Human sex trafficking is making merchandise of women and children all over the world. Hundreds of millions of innocent victims are submitted to the most unspeakable perversions because of unbridled sexual immorality.
Pornography is absolutely destroying the moral fabric of our society, and producing thousands of pedophiles, along with sexual addicts that the government has absolutely no idea of what to do with. Many of these people are multiple offenders.
Marriages and families are torn apart and lives are devastated, all because sexual immorality is allowed to find its way into people’s lives primarily via the internet and television. In the name of freedom of speech, and freedom of expression, porn has gone mainstream, and is driving fashion, entertainment, and political policies.
As a result of moral failure millions of children are growing up in families without either a mother or father, and a majority of grandparents in some states are raising their grandchildren, just because their children are too inept to take responsibility for their progeny.
In addition to all of this, we now have a growing number of people who want gay marriage to be sanctioned by the government, and considered to be equal with heterosexual marriage. This is in spite of the fact that most gay men have up to a thousand sexual partners, and according to the CDC are at a substantially higher risk of contracting Syphilis. Who would have ever thought fifty to a hundred years ago that we would ever be actually considering the idea that this abnormal behavior would one day be considered normal?
The dictates and moral principles found in the clear teachings of the Bible formed the fabric of the United States of America. It is upon the foundation of biblical morals that the family and the foundation of this nation were established. It doesn’t require a PhD to see that the erosion of this nation can be traced directly to the removal of biblical absolutes from public education, our judicial system, and legislative policies of our government.
Evolution, materialism, moral relativism, and Postmodernism have been dismal failures in serving to restrain the most base impulses of human depravity. While America has never been a perfect nation, we can easily see that we were much better off when the teachings of the Bible served as the driving force of our nation rather than the shifting sands of humanistic intellectualism.
It is time to challenge this social experiment and demand that enough is enough! If this nation hopes to survive we need to return to the God of the Bible, and honor Him by restoring the righteous godly morals that sustained us these many years.
The Lord is known by the judgment He executes; The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten; The expectation of the poor shall not perish forever. Psalm 9:16-18 (NKJV)
Supreme Court Decision, 1892; Church of The Holy Trinity -vs.- United States…the court said, “Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon the teachings of the redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian…This is a religious people. This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation… we find everywhere a clear recognition of the same truth…These, and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.”
Charles Malik, one time Ambassador to the United Nations from Lebanon, put it this way: “The good (in the United States) would never have come into being without the blessing and the power of Jesus Christ…I know how embarrassing this matter is to politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen and cynics: but, whatever these honored men think, the irrefutable truth is that the soul of America is at its best and highest Christian.”
Noah Webster, “The religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and His apostles…to this we owe our free constitutions of government.”
