Going soft on sin is like shooting yourself in the foot because of its inevitable destruction. We can’t be soft on sin and still be free. Sin is enslavement. “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin…. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed (John 8:34-36). We either choose to be a slave to sin or accept God’s freedom through Christ. No one is allowed to be on both sides at the same time.
In this editorial I want to touch on a very outrageously sensitive subject that is breaking my heart. It is the exploitation of innocent children for money, prostitution and all kinds of perverted sexual activities of deviants among us. What does it say about a society where these practices are on the rise by leaps and bounds?
Every generation has its difficult challenges. Right now, in America it is the General/Presidential election of November 3rd. Everything that has made America the most powerful and prosperous country in human history is on the balance. That is not hyperbole, it is fact.
The socialist agenda is in full force out in the open and isn’t even trying to hide what their aim is any longer, which is to destroy this country and remake it into their own image. They have believed the Marxist lie of creating a so-called “paradise”.
News around the country is beginning to report that Christians are waking up and mobilizing to fight for the soul of America. That is music to my ears! Pastors, churches and para-church organizations are awakening to the reality of the precarious times we are living, and they are doing something about it.
In the riots in Portland, Oregon antifa rioters set a bonfire in front of the federal courthouse but they stepped to a new low. They decided to burn Bibles. I kid you not! They threw copies of the Bible in the fire. Does this surprise me? No, because I know they are not God-fearing people. Otherwise, they would not be hurting innocent people, destroying public and private property and carrying on in so many lawless ways. They have become emboldened because not even the laws of the land are being applied to them at the moment. They are not being held responsible for their disastrous and shameful behavior so they feel that they have arrived at a new level in their power grab and will be allowed to continue. They seriously think they are in control of the entire country.
Our world is definitely changing at a neck-break pace and we must stay very alert to not get sucked into this whirlwind that is taking our culture in the wrong direction. More and more, the perverted ideas that were clearly not socially acceptable in our country are rapidly and openly receiving abundant social acceptance. Make no mistake, we are definitely living life upside down and we were warned about these trends a long time ago. Isaiah 5:20-21 says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!”
Since I was a young girl, I have heard a mantra that the world is becoming more and more overpopulated, and that everyone should not plan on having a large family. We have been told to use contraceptives to avoid getting pregnant because the planet cannot withstand a growth in population. Then to top it off, in 1973, abortion was legalized in America and since then to now 62.1 million unborn children have been murdered in the mother’s womb. A mother’s womb is supposed to be the safest place for a baby; however, it has become the most dangerous place of execution for millions of them.
In 2019, Pew Research did a global survey asking if people could be moral without God. It is interesting that the answers vary according to the economic development, education and age of the individuals being surveyed.
Growing up in America, as children, we looked forward to the enjoyable parades and patriotic celebrations to commemorate meaningful events in our history. They were joyous occasions that swelled our hearts with patriotism and love and appreciation to be living in this great country. But the recent marches of people we have seen on the streets of our cities these days are intended to gain support for what some believe are injustices committed against them. We do not deny that there are injustices being committed. But in America we have been provided with processes to get justice and change what needs to be changed for the greater good. However, these injustices are now being blamed on everyone from the government, police, business owners, homeowners, to everyone with white skin or a different skin color who is alive today in this country and even in the past.
