It is America in year 2050
It is America in year 2050. Fads come and go. Society changes with time. Outlooks, attitudes and values change. Mankind changes. One thing comes into fashion and then another. Things that were once unacceptable become acceptable. Want to hear the latest fad? In a public place, some person will take a stranger by surprise, throw a pail of gasoline over him, then ignite him. Crowds gather to enjoy the grand spectacle presented by this writhing human torch. It is the latest amusement. Do you tell me that I am being ridiculous? Don’t underestimate what shifting attitudes and outlooks can do in a society. Never underestimate man’s capacity for depravity and degeneracy. Social norms change. What is unthinkable at one time can become the latest fashion at another. Remember: At one time homosexual marriage would have been totally unthinkable in this society. Do you think that human beings could not enjoy the spectacle of a burning human torch? Don’t forget how the masses of ancient Rome received great entertainment from the sight of Christians being torn to pieces by lions in the great Roman circuses. Times change, fashions come and go. The basic nature of man, however, never changes. He is capable of reaching the greatest heights but also of sinking to the greatest depths. And the truth is: descending is far easier and more pleasurable than ascending. It is the lone, struggling man who ascends. The masses all compete with one another in descending.
America — captivated and enslaved by badness, immorality, wickedness! America — unbelievably shameless! Shockingly bold! America — always pushing the limits! Always pushing the boundaries! Wicked men everywhere flaunting their wickedness! A population in love with wickedness! What is happening? Think about it! How do you explain it? A country possessed by the spirit of Satan? Do you understand?! What other explanation can you give for America’s great romance with lust, depravity and Evil? Do you understand the seriousness of the sins of fornication, adultery, homosexuality? Do you know what happens to people who engage in these high sins? Punishment in a hell that lasts forever.
Consider the following words of Jesus:
Matt 13:47-50 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
Bold America! Godless America! Shameless America! What can one say?! How can people be so totally devoid of any fear of God?! How can a population be so corrupt? How can a population be so bold as to scorn every moral law? Don’t they intuitively know that there has to be divine consequence for such conduct?
Can you imagine what a society would be like that loved goodness and virtue instead of evil? Think about that. What would such a society be like?
