Name one institution in our society that’s working as it should. Just one.
Let’s see… Education? Don’t make me laugh. The press? Don’t make me gag. Congress? (Falls to the floor with pink foam frothing from the ears)
Tens of millions of us send our kids every day to schools run by over-the-top lefty loon teachers’ unions, to be taught “You can be a boy one day and a girl the next, depending on how you feel.” And also that the Bible is hate speech and Science is absolutely always right and if we don’t give the government lots and lots and lots more power over our lives, we’re all gonna die of Global Warming. And if that doesn’t finish them off, we send them on to college.
The de facto religion of our ruling class is atheism; or, to give it its softer label, humanism. Man is god. Man’s inventions are to be worshiped. There is nothing real but what they tell you is real. And so on.
I find myself at a disadvantage when called upon to discuss anything with an aggressive atheist. There’s no model in the Bible. Jesus talked with an awful lot of people, but every single one of them at least claimed to believe in God, or some god. He is not reported as having ever spoken with an atheist. I wonder if that’s because there weren’t any. The pagan Greeks and Romans would sometimes brand a public enemy an atheist, but that’s about as far as it went.
Anyhow… If you want to drain the swamp, it becomes impossible if the place fills up again as quickly as you can pump it out. This is what our corrupted culture does to us. We get rid of the snakes, and there are only more snakes to replace them. Our ruined post-Christian culture cannot generate good people. Whatever goodness they are born with, by the common grace of God toward all, gets vigorously suppressed.
Give your children a Christian education. Gather together and exhort one another. Live by God’s commandments.
Come out of the swamp. Come out of Babylon. And show the world there’s a better way of doing it than the way they’re doing it.
