They Keep Killing the Culture

Image result for images of culture rot

My Bible-reading today took me to Leviticus 18, one of the grimmest chapters in the Bible: “After the doings of the land of Egypt… shall ye not do, and after the doings of the land of Canaan… shall ye not do…” (v. 3). Those “doings” refer to a wide variety of sexual sins–I need hardly to list them here–and the practice of offering up children as human sacrifices to false gods.

We in today’s Western world, which once was known as Christendom–we do all these things, and have invented additional perversions which never occurred to our ancestors.

I put it this way: Kill the culture, and the culture will kill you back.

F’rinstance: now being released, Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey ( ). “The Sun” (UK) has given it one star for quality and five for sexual content. It is, they say, “far kinkier than the original” movie devoted to a particularly incomprehensible perversion.

Now, there is a fair to excellent chance that this movie might bomb at the box office–but no one makes a movie to lose $100 million on purpose. No, this is Hollywood, doing its thing–its own campaign to fundamentally transform America and every other civilized country.

You cannot maintain a republic, a free country designed for sane and responsible adults, with a population stripped of God and family and devoted to heaping up sin as high as it will go. No amount of electoral victories can save us from the consequences of this, if we keep on doing it. People have to have strong families, orderly lives, and decency if they are also to have prosperity and liberty. A nation cannot separate itself from God and hope to thrive.

Again I pray: O Lord our God, please remember, when you judge this nation, that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections.

  1. What has happened to sex as an expression of love between a couple that are committed to one another for life?

    I have heard women complain about the things their husbands expect from them, but no one seems to want to call these things out for what they are: perversions of God’s most lovely gift to the human race.

    Satan knows our makeup and he knows just what will undermine our character. What would have been considered shocking pornography fifty years ago is mainstream entertainment these days. Cable has allowed the distribution of materials that are not allowed over the airwaves. The Internet has turned every connected computer into a potential porn shop, without having to drive into a questionable part of town.

    We now have the term “sex addict”, but such a thing was all but unheard of when most Americans at least attempted to live by biblical moral standards. As I type, The Rolling Stones are on the restaurant radio singing “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction”, which is really a symptom of what is wrong. No one can be satisfied if they abandon the good things of life in favor of cheap thrills.

    I do t seek to judge or condemn anyONE, but there are harmful behaviors that are destroying civilization. God had always preserved the remnant of those that adhere to Him faithfully. Those that practice these things may yet learn or the error in their ways and many of those whom do will become bold in speaking out against the evil practices they once embraced. In the final analysis, God will vindicate His name and people will make an informed decision regarding their loyalties.

    1. There remains hope for repentance and regeneration. As Paul put it, “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:11)

  2. Yes, it is deplorable, disgraceful and also scary to see what is happening to our culture, remembering the Lord’s words in Matthew 24, Luke 17 and 21, and remembering the consequences of those times.
