“Moral free fall”
by Art Sadlier   
August 10th, 2008

Our society is in a moral freefall, incredible moral decline is underway and there is not enough moral conviction to lodge serious objection. It seems to me things that months ago would not be accepted, are now today going unchallenged. Let me give a few startling headlines.

"RCMP TO JOIN GAYS IN VANCOUVER PRIDE PARADE" ..... "LEGISLATORS TELL SCHOOL KIDS TO CELEBRATE HOMOSEXUALITY" ..... "SAN FRANCISCO FEATURES PUBLIC SEX WITH NO ARRESTS"..... "PRO-LIFE DEMONSTRATORS ARRESTED IN MARYLAND"....."OBAMA PLEDGES 'TOTAL EQUALITY' FOR SAME SEX FAMILIES"....."PELOSI BACKS OBAMA ON REPEAL OF DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT"

On August 7, World Net Daily showed a picture on their website of nude men who they reported were engaging in sex acts on the streets of San Francisco, the picture showed a nude man with the police looking on. One police officer was reported to have said that municpial authorities told them not to intervene. If I had not seen the picture myself, I would not have believed this report.

By way of contrast, on August 6, OneNewsNow reported that 18 people were arrested for carring posters with actual pictures of aborted babies. They were on public property and were well within their rights.

In California, only a year after banning all negative messages about homosexuality in public schools throughout the state, the California Legislature now is ordering school children to celebrate "gay" lifestyle choices.

"If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"...Psl.11:3. The answer comes ringing back in the next verse. "The Lord is in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold the children of men." God's payday doesn't come on Friday, but it will come.

God has given to men instructions in His Word as to how they are to live and act, and not only in His Word, He has also written His law in man's conscience. In Pslam 2, the Lord has told us how men would react to His law in the last days. "Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his annointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision".

The danger for our society is that at some point we will cross the line of God's patience and mercy and our society will be beyond hope. At that point only judgement will await our two nations. Perhaps we have alreaady crossed that line. In a similiar time, they put Jeremiah in jail for saying the same thing.

There is a time, we know not when, A point we know not where, That marks the destiny of men, For glory or despair.

There is a line, by us unseen, That crosses every path; The hidden boundary between God's patience and His wrwth.
