An American Tragedy


It is tragic when Evil is rejoiced as Good and Good is attacked as Evil. Then again, who really believes in absolute morality anymore?  

The sad reality is many Americans base their morality and decision making on emotion and feeling.  We tend to all hold our own morality compass.  Truth has become relative to the person holding it.  What is perceived as the greater good of the people is actually an attitude of what is best for me.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, [because] they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn [their] ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. – 2Ti 4:3-4 NKJV

A gallup poll was done not long ago, the statistics speak for themselves:

Not only has Church Attendance been on a steady decline, the church is steadily losing its influence:

We are in the midst of an American tragedy.  If this trend does not begin to reverse itself then the church will lose its influence and its freedoms torn away.  We must ask ourselves the tough questions if we ever want to turn this thing around.

Let us not forsake the Gospel of Jesus, nor water down our message to accommodate the shifting sands of cultural norms.  The culture and public opinion will always change, remember most do not believe there is an absolute truth, they can be swayed to and from by the slightest change in wind direction…

14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, – Eph 4:14 NKJV
