The problem is a 30 year campaign to destroy the true meaning of marriage and male/female relationships. Also, some of the current generation and the Baby Boom generation has decided they will no longer endure sound doctrine.
- Introduction of The Pill, for birth control.
- Hippies, Radicals and Anarchists advocate “Free Love” which means sex with anyone with or without marriage, and the promotion of living together without marriage.
- Abortion made legal. Sex education is made mandatory in Catholic schools.
- The National Organization of Women warns women that they are being “oppressed” by the men in their lives. Adult bookstores proliferate. No-Fault Divorce is moving east from California.
1980s. Porn in hotels and motels and on cable. No-Fault Divorce completes its move across the country.
1990s. It is no longer possible to tell Christians fron non-Christians. The sons and daughters of the Hippies, Radicals and Anarchists are adults and take up the lifestyle. Jay and Silent Bob are two sex obsessed, profanity spewing drug dealers that attempt to achieve cult icon status. Aging Baby Boomers decide to 'eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you die." Parents decide to stop raising their kids and leave that to Day Care, TV, books, and “experts.” Kids openly push mom and dad around and some adopt a ‘slacker’ lifestyle where mom and dad feel restrained from interfering with due to years of propaganda from ‘experts.’
The present. The less we model Christ in our lives, the more we model the behavior of the world. Divorce, which began as a use in case of emergencies only, has become No-Fault Divorce. Abortion, which began as use in case of emergencies only, has become Abortion On Demand. Shacking Up has gone from a bad thing to “What are you gonna tell the kids nowadays?” Aren’t you their mother and father? When did it turn into a split between parents and children where the moment they turn 18 they can do whatever they want, even if you know it’s wrong and bad for them?
Wake up. Model Jesus Christ and not the world. Do you have to go to the Mall every weekend? Do you need all those new gadgets? Where are you with your relationship to Jesus Christ? Do you only visit Him on Sunday? Do you think about HIM while you’re in Church or about going home and the things you want to do later?
Jesus said, “If you love me keep my commandments.”
