How much farther can our society go?
After yet another young, wholesome singer embraces her rebellious sexy side, perhaps even gets video taped in inappropriate pictures or videos…. then what?
After other young artists engage in constant “party mode,” indulging in excess of alcohol, drugs and immoral behavior… then what?
After our society willfully accepts sexual activity at younger and younger ages, with no expectation of accepting the consequences of such behavior… how much younger can that behavior begin?
After our society dismisses the value of monogamy and marriage, of father/mother parenting and of defining universally accepted moral truths… what behavior will ever be considered bad behavior?
After our society ignores basic scientific proof of the existence of life at all stages of human development and thereby dismisses the value of any life within certain areas of societal comfort… where does that end? If some life is expendable today, what life will be expendable tomorrow?
What is left for our society to offer the next generation?
The answer is… nothing.
No amount of drinking, drug use, illicit sexuality and relative definition of behavior will make us truly happy. There are no products we can acquire nor food we can consume that can fill the void within all of us.
America has turned from a materialistic society to an orgiastic consuming society.
What’s left after that?
We have two options. Destruction. Or Salvation, from Jesus Christ.
Christianity began in the moral cesspool that is the Roman Empire where the value of life was non-existence and sexual immorality common place. It can certainly rise above the decadence of the United States.
Jesus Christ is the answer to our questions, to the voids in our lives, to the sense of emptiness with which we try to fill with every excess.
At the end of the day, either our society will disintegrate from its own internal moral decay or it will be resurrected by the shining light of Jesus’ way of life…
It either ends for good or begins again.
Because our society has nothing left to offer us, nothing that will really make us happy.
Only the love of Jesus Christ and following his hard, demanding teachings can give us the true joy we’re missing in our lives.
