Towards the end of the age society is to decline in morals, values, etc. There will be a huge rise in immorality, hedonism, humanism, situation ethics, and more. Men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, brutal, disobedient to parents, etc. See Matthew 24, II Timothy 3, Jude 18, and II Peter 3. Love will grow cold. Family values will be mocked. Entertainment will be perverse even for children. It will be “as the days of Noah.” And that describes the 21st Century.
Public school performs 'gay' play mocking Bible, laughing at bestiality
A public charter school in Massachusetts turned a deaf ear to protests last week and followed through with performing a pro-homosexual play that mocks the Bible and has been blasted as “blasphemous.”
We know now how he felt. We were watching the Super Bowl in the annual American moment of frenzied sports worship and suddenly an eerie half-darkness descended on the stadium. More humiliating yet, the TV producers did not have enough spare beer commercials to fill in for the action.
A great gloom descended on the stadium and the land. America stood befuddled at home around the onion dip, or sat on the couch befuddled. All anybody knew was that something deeply, psychically disturbing had taken place.
The president of one of the world's largest seminaries vigorously defended traditional marriage at a recent conference.
“We have the only message that is running counter to the wisdom of the age” regarding human sexuality, said Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. “We have to get over the idea that we somehow have a private message without public consequences,” he said at the Together for the Gospel conference in April. The conference, which met this year in Louisville, KY, is a biennial gathering of pastors committed to preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ as the church's central message.
The Decay of Society: Schools as a Mirror
By Dr. David R. Reagan
The best way I can think of to summarize the decay of American society is to consider the results of a public school survey that was conducted in the mid-1940's and again in the mid-1980's. The survey was taken by the Fullerton, California Police Department in conjunction with the California Department of Education. The purpose was to determine the major disciplinary problems in the schools. The comparative results speak volumes (see the comparative chart below).3
People in politics talk about the right track/wrong track numbers as an indicator of public mood. This week Gallup had a poll showing only 24% of Americans feel we're on the right track as a nation. That's a historic low. Political professionals tend, understandably, to think it's all about the economy—unemployment, foreclosures, we're going in the wrong direction. I've long thought that public dissatisfaction is about more than the economy, that it's also about our culture, or rather the flat, brute, highly sexualized thing we call our culture.
Now I'd go a step beyond that. I think more and more ...
