Cultural Meltdown

The Western culture is a relatively short-lived mindset in terms of prosperity, government and freedom, and it seems as if we are determined to keep it that way! From the America’s to the European nations to the “Land of the Down Under” a shift is taking place of tectonic proportions. We have forgotten how the west was won!

We are more concerned about the rights of children than we are with raising them right. We are more concerned with houses than we are with homes. We are more concerned about melting icecaps than we are with melting morals. We are more concerned with giving handouts than we are with hands that do not want to work. We are more concerned with people having their freedom from religion than we are with people having freedom of religion. We are more concerned with abortion rights than we are with abortion wrongs. We are more concerned with living it up than we are with living.

According to one brother in Christ who did the math, the West doesn’t know how to be happy because we’re too worried with people being gay…those are my words not his. But his numbers did reveal that Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, and Sweden have all “legalized” homosexual marriage. His research also revealed that laws allowing gay marriage have been proposed, are pending, or have already passed in at least one legislative house in Andorra, Columbia, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Nepal, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and Uruguay. Sadly, since he did his number crunching New Zealand actually legalized homosexual marriage too. On top of that, none of the previous examples include the nine American States (the beacon of the western culture) who have “legalized” homosexual marriages. In less than 10 years America has gone from approving none to approving homosexual marriage in nearly one out of every five states! Do you see how fast a nation and culture can fall down a slippery slope???

If our culture paid less attention to supporting faux families and more attention to supporting the types of families that build strong foundations maybe we would have to worry less about the sinkholes that are swallowing up our identity as a culture.

Unfortunately a cultural thermostat set too high on prosperity has led to cultural thermostat set too low on a spirituality that recognizes our dependence upon the one God of the heavens and the Earth. And my prayer is that the western culture would soon realize that the meltdown we are experiencing is not due to the world getting warmer – it’s due to hearts getting colder! EA

Article Update: As of April 23, 2013, the nation of France “legalized” homosexual marriages as well, and as of May 2, 2013 the American state of New Hampshire “legalized” homosexual marriages raising the percentage of American States to 20% that have done so. As of May 7, 2013 the American state of Delaware “legalized” homosexual marriages sadly raising the number of American states who openly approve of abominations to 11. As of May 13, 2013 the American state of Minnesota “legalized” homosexual marriages sadly raising the number of American states who openly approve of abominations to 12. How fast one falls down the slippery slope! As of October 21, 2013, New Jersey will “approve” of legalized lust. As of December 15, 2013, the state of Hawaii will become the 15th state to join the not-so-United-States in their open approval of closed spiritual hearts…and the state of Illinois’ sun is setting quickly on the horizon as well; and the sun did indeed set in November of 2013 making it the 16th state. As of 12-19-13 and 12-20-13 the state supreme courts of New Mexico and Utah struck the state’s ban on homosexual marriages thus opening another lust filled closet door to sanctioned sin.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.” (Romans 1:18-21)

  1. Excellent Bro. God Bless For Telling The Truth. A very sad tale indeed,”OF HOW THE WEST WAS LOST” Wake Up America!!! Godspeed My Friend!!

  2. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools … Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: (Romans 1:22, 24). When I see this going on, it reminds me that our Lord’s return is just around the corner! :)

    • Hey Ernie. If it’s not the universal day of the Lord around the corner it will unfortunately be a cultural day of the Lord if there’s not some genuine repentance, and the rest of Romans 1 doesn’t bode too well for us when it comes to the chances of that happening any time soon. Thanks for chipping in.

  3. With everything going down the tubes in this world, you think whether or not two men getting married is what we should be concerned with? How they live their lives is their business. I don’t care. If we as Christians want to protect the sanctity of marriage, then we need to Stop – Getting – Divorced.
    As for the decline of our society, we have been working hard on that for decades now. Long before “Gay Rights” was even an issue.

    • Mornin, Hayden.

      It’s not what I say we should be concerned with, it’s what the Bible says we should be concerned with because it’s a sin that will send a person to Hell. I’m 110% with you on the abuse of marriage by “straight” people and I make sure to mention it from time to time to stay balanced with my teaching and preaching…I actually referenced it in my previous post with Matthew 19:1-19 and what Jesus said about the issue. I also have to deal with issue personally as I help people prepare for marriage and help them avoid getting a divorce here in my “neck of the woods.”

      As for the decline of our society that you mentioned, you’re right that we’ve been working hard on that for decades now, but the “Gay Rights” issue is proving to be the symptom that can’t be swept under the rug. It’s a symptom and not the source. The source is our culture, a very large part of it, out right rejecting God and common morality. Rampant homosexuality is a symptom that’s akin to an aggressive and fast moving cancer that’s destroying our nation when you compare the last ten years of “legalization” to our 330+ official years as a nation. That’s why Romans 1:24-27 says, “Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful,….” When a society gives in as a whole to homosexuality it’s very very likely because God has given up on that society as a whole.

      I’m a Christian who tries to stay focused on Heaven, but like you I have people that I care about and a child who, Lord willing, will grow up with the results of our choices, and that’s why I pray for our culture as a whole, particularly when it comes to this topic and the judgment that it can bring upon us.

      Thanks for commenting mi amigo.
