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 ( https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/2780949/we-take-a-first-glimpse-at-fifty-shades-darker-which-is-far-kinkier-than-the-original-and-almost-pornographic-at-times/ ). “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.
