In 1821, Daniel Webster defined the rules of longevity with "If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity."
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, high minded lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
September 11, 1777, [note the date] Congress (Continental Congress) then approved 20,000 Holy Bibles to be imported as there were shortage of Bibles, the Bibles were imported from Scotland and elsewhere into different parts of the States of the Union. (1)
Dr. Benjamin Spock said, We shouldnt spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self esteem. By the way Dr. Benjamin Spocks son committed suicide.
Some say it does not matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs. Sin but dont get caught.
Many believe it is ok to publish photos of nude women even nude children on internet as they are entitle to free speech.
TV and movies promote profanity, violence and illicit sex and many enjoy watching them.
There is a new generation that does not know right from wrong, does not know God. They have no fear of God. The teenage sexual activity and pregnancy have increased 400%. 70% of unwed teen mothers will go on welfare. Of teens who marry because of pregnancy, 60% will be divorced in five years.
Malachi 1:6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honor? And if I be a master, where is my fear? Saith the LORD of hosts unto you..
There is no reverence to God in todays society as many do not believe the authority of God and therefore sadly God has no honor. When you say God has no authority then it is substituted with mans authority, humanism. The result is mans opinions and we see the pro-abortion, pro-gay, taking the 10 commandments out of public places, sexual immorality, violence, disobedience and all in all the decline of a nation.
The nation abandoned God. We have abandoned the absolute truth of the Bible. When you abandon God and the truth of the Bible, then man makes the rules. Every man decides what is right and what is wrong in his own perspective. This is called moral relativism.

Since 1960, there has been a 560% increase in violent crime. Lawlessness is everywhere. Children are disobedient to their parents, you hear children killing parents, parents killing children, husbands and wives killings, parents dumping their new born into dustbins, these were unheard of.
Television may be responsible for doubling our
crime rate in the United States, suggests Brandon Centerwall, psychiatrist at
the University of Washington, in a recent study reported in the June 1992
Journal of the American Medical Association. Centerwall analyzed crime statistics
both before and after TV was introduced in several communities. Those
comparisons cause him to conclude that prolonged exposure to violence on TV has
increased the number of murders in the

The media or the world does not called homosexuality but Gay or an alternative lifestyle. But God said it homosexuality.

In discussing Romans 1:26-28, 32, Jay Adams states it clearly: "In verse 26 Paul speaks of homosexuality as a "degrading passion," in verse 27 as an "indecent act" and "an error," in verse 28 the improper activity of a "depraved mind," and verse 32 declares it is "worthy of death." One is not a homosexual constitutionally any more than one is an adulterer constitutionally. Homosexuality is not considered to be a condition, but an act. It is viewed as a sinful practice which can become a way of life. The homosexual act, like the act of adultery, is the reason for calling one a homosexual (of course, one may commit homosexual sins of the heart, just as one can commit heterosexual sins of the heart. He may lust after a man in his heart as another may lust after a woman). But precisely because homosexuality, like adultery, is learned behavior into which men with sinful natures are prone to wander, homosexuality can be forgiven in Christ, and the pattern can be abandoned and in its place proper patterns can be reestablished by the Holy Spirit."

C. Everett Koop, M.D., formerly the Surgeon General, states that during his 35-plus years of practicing medicine, "Never once did a case come across my practice where abortion was necessary to save a mother's life."
Now it is all right. It is all right to pull a baby three-fourths of the way out of its mother's womb and stick a pair of scissors in the back of its neck and kill it.

Internet and video stores are openly promoting pornography. Nude women and men are exposed with their sexual behavior many are involved in this secret sin. Immorality is destructive to your soul. Remember the secret sin of Achan in Joshua chapter seven.
The media, and the average public school textbook today present atheistic (perhaps subtly rather than overtly) evolution as fact. Students are taught that the universe and all life arose by strictly material causes. God is not given any place in the origin of anything. Over the years, the teaching of evolution has intensified in our school systems and through the media. So much so that the average person believes that scientists have proved the earth is billions of years old and that the different forms of life arose through an evolutionary process of death and struggle.

Today many are calling themselves Christians but not doing the will of God. These people who call themselves Christians are illiterate in the Bible. They do not read and study the word of God. The majority of all born-again Christians read the Bible once or twice a week, or not at all yet 93% of Americans own a Bible.
Many are being poisoned by wrong doctrines. As a
result A majority of citizens cannot name the four Gospels of the New
Testament. A woman said that she thought
Nearly three out of four Americans believe the Bible teaches that "God helps those who help themselves. There is no scripture like that. Many say they are Christians but deny the existence of the Holy Spirit, Satan and the physical resurrection of Jesus.
Repent of your sins, turn away from your sins and turn to the true living God of the Bible. Realize when you sin you have offended God directly. God requires satisfaction. How can you satisfy God? Not by the traditions of religion taught by men not by God.
Jesus said, These people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Mark 7:6-7)
Jesus satisfied God by being obedient to the cross, he fulfilled all the commands where we have violated, he was obedient where we were disobedient and took the punishment of sin. Gods wrath will fall upon all those who are unsaved and living in sin. Salvation is found only in Jesus and he is the only way to heaven. Salvation is only by the grace of God for undeserved sinners and not of works which anyone can boast.
