Generations of believers have allowed America's decline. When Christians slide back into the world rather than present a life-preserving influence, our culture suffers as a result. This should not come as a shock to discerning, informed, mature people of faith. Many of us are disappointed, yes, but not surprised. The natural man lives without moral restraints and accountability, while the spiritually regenerated man, the Spirit-filled Christian, lives according to the Bible's moral code. It's easy to see which side is winning.
