Where are we going?!

Reports, to day, that the 13-year-old boy to whom I referred in the post “It’s that prayer thing – again!” (see below) may not, in fact, be the father of the little girl, Maisie, do nothing to make the situation any better. This is because the reason is that two other, slightly older, boys have now claimed that they each had full, penetrative, unprotected, sexual intercourse with the mother – now 15 years of age – and they claim that it was with the consent of her parents!

It was the Old Testament prophet, Hosea, who stated, concerning the people of Samaria, that “They have planted the wind, and will harvest the whirlwind.” ( Hosea: 8:7). It is surely only those who suffer from the well-known “ostrich-syndrome” who are unable to see that the same thing applies to our own society, and culture. The “permissive society” of the 1960s; the breakdown of the traditional family unit – assisted to some degree by successive administrations; the disappearance of old-fashioned respect, for oneself, for one’s peers, and for one’s elders - encouraged by the “expert” writings of Dr Benjamin Spock; and the generational growth of a benefit-dependency culture – based on the simple fact that successive governments have seen fit to use the taxes of the rest to fund and support the lifestyle of the careless and feckless; have all conspired to produce a society that is ripe for meltdown.

Underlying all of the above is the simple fact that, in the United Kingdom at least, we have largely turned our backs on the God of our fathers, preferring to offer our adulation to so-called “celebrities” of one sort and another. Of course, to suggest that the country needs to apply the words of II Chronicles 7:14 – “… if My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land.” is still to invite criticism and ridicule from some. Indeed, those words really apply only to those who are God’s people – and that, certainly from a Christian perspective, involves only those who have made a genuine commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ, and accepted the salvation that He has provided through His self-sacrifice at Calvary. However, since the brave new world of the proponents of liberal thinking has so obviously failed, and done so to such a high degree, perhaps it is time for all to seek the face of the Living God, and cry out for mercy.

As the great apostle, Paul, wrote to some of his Christian friends “Don't be misled. Remember that you can't ignore God and get away with it. You will always reap what you sow!” (Gal.6:7). Now that’s a lesson that an awful lot of people still need to learn!

Saddly they may only learn the lesson when it is too late.

on the subject of 'benefit dependancy' as quoted. So, what about America - they do not have a benefit dependancy and all the 'god mongers' there do not seem to have made much diffference either

Thank you for your comment. However, I am not in a position to make any informed decision about the situation in the USA and, hiding behind your badge of anonymity, I can't be sure that you are! One thing that I have learned throughout my lifetime is that it is not always wise to place one's trust wholly on media reports!
