Culture Threat #6: The Attack Against Morality
Today many obvious violations of God's absolute moral code are not only committed openly and without shame, but even enshrined into law. And lawmakers are being urged to enact laws legitimizing even further violations.
The consequences will be impossible to imagine.
While many Americans may participate in gambling, prostitution, abortion, pornography, and other legal behaviors that soil the American conscience, most seem to realize there's a disconnect between what is legal and what is truly moral.
The loss of a moral compass in society at large is troubling, but it is even more troubling when followers of Jesus Christ - those who are called to be "salt and light" in the world (Matthew 5:13-16) - lose theirs. We need to draw a line in the sand and close the "morality gap" - the distance between what we know God expects and what we are willing to allow as acceptable behavior.
The most concise summary of God's laws for those who claim to follow Him was given by Jesus in Matthew 22:37: "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind."
I never thought I'd see the day when America's moral compass would lose its orientation. But it has happened. Let's create a thirst for God in those whose lives we touch by living lives that demonstrate His nature to a wayward and searching world.
What you can do:
Read Matthew 5:3-16. Know how to defend the attacks on morality in our culture by doing what you can to positively affect the legal process. Read Chapter Five of I Never Thought I'd See the Day! that examines the consequences of morality in decline. Now a #1 New York Times Bestseller!
Ask God to convict people of their sin and for them to respond in repentance. Pray for our nation to return to her moral bearings rooted in God's Word. Pray for Christians to be "salt and light" as we live in the world but are not of it (Ephesians 5:8-11).
Get involved in reversing attacks on morality that impact your community. Diligently study God's Word and understand His call to holiness in your life. Listen and watch I Never Thought I'd See the Day! on
