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.
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.
ABC News is mainstreaming the practice of polyamory—that is, group marriage—with a story titled, "Two Moms, One Dad, Two Babies Make One Big Happy Polyamorous Family."
The video (which you should watch at your own discretion, it includes discussions of three-way sex) profiles a self-described "triad" or "throuple"—a three-person couple.
The cover reads "The Right to Die: Why assisted suicide should be legal." Inside the magazine, the article began with the following words: "It is easy to forget that adultery was a crime in Spain until 1978; or that in America, where gay marriage is allowed by 37 states and may soon be extended to all others by the Supreme Court, the last anti-sodomy law was struck down only in 2003. Yet, although most Western governments no longer try to dictate how consenting adults have sex, the state still stands in the way of their choices about death. An increasing number of people—and this newspaper—believe that is wrong." Wow.
Compared to just a few years ago, we have a completely different set of ideas about what constitutes acceptable behavior. As Caitlyn Jenner puts it in her new reality show, "I'm the new normal."
Graham said he finds it "very unfortunate" that Wells Fargo has chosen to start promoting – using shareholders' money – the lifestyle of "a real small group of people" in America. Consequently, BGEA is going to move their accounts that could total in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
"... We're closing our accounts at Wells Fargo and we're moving to another bank here in North Carolina ... that is a good bank," he explained. "We've done business with them at Samaritan's Purse for many years."
The four Colombian high school students were brought to the emergency room two weeks ago screaming and babbling.
There was nothing physically wrong with them. Instead doctors diagnosed a case of 'mass hysteria'.
The cause? They had been trying to summon a 'Mexican demon' with two pencils balanced on a piece of paper, like a modern version of the ouija board.
'Barring a miracle, the family will likely crumble'
Dr. James Dobson, who founded the highly influential groups Focus on the Family and Family Research Council and now runs Family Talk Radio, is warning that if the U.S. Supreme Court redefines marriage as analysts predict, the ruling will presage the "fall of Western civilization."
So who is responsible for placing society's body over the bottomless pit of moral decay?
I, for one, place the entire blame at the feet of some church leaders—those who actively worked to obliterate the biblical moral code, and those who, by their silence, essentially acquiesced to its destruction.
Warren and John laughed as they held hands, and as Warren told him jokingly if they kissed it would be "the kiss heard 'round the world."
John, the founder of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, said gay members were marginalized in some African nations, which hinders distribution of much-needed drugs for HIV/AIDS.
"They go underground, and the disease is spread even further," he said.
It has been called "The History-Making Gay Kiss," as The Fosters TV show, which airs during prime time on the ABC Family network, featured the "Youngest Same-Sex TV Kiss Ever." Yes, on a so-called "family friendly" network, two 13-year-old boys locked lips, and gay activists and their allies are celebrating the moment.
