Mathew 13:15-16 "For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear." I guess some things never change.
The people chose Barabbas, a murderer instead of Jesus Christ, the Messiah. (Luke 23:18-19). AND so it is today. People still chose satan, a murderer over Jesus Christ, our Salvation.
But, WatchDog, it's not God or God's fault. People have done evil things in God's name forever and it only harms people.
A mom in Los Angeles was just sentenced to three years for mentally abusing her child. Ready for this? Her crime...mental abuse of her 14 year old daughter. Her daughter complained to her school counselor that her mother was going against her views of God and causing an unstable relationship with her and the poor daughter just couldn't take it anymore. The school helped her file the complaint. The mom made statements that included... God is going to punish you for your sins. God doesn't like ugly. God doesn't want you to have sex at this age. God doesn't want you running the streets after dark, etc. God wants you to go to church.
The daughter, peer pressured with friends that didn't believe in God, ruled the day.
The court agreed that it was mental abuse on the child.
Welcome to the new world.
I agree with the guilty verdict. Just not to happy about the sentencing part of it. It was to weak.
But it is what is! This is the reality world we live in today...kids, schools and Government involved with their control...who needs parents, discipline and God? The days of family values and moral is very rare today.
Kozy sweetheart, the path this country is on...I say in another 50 years, the mention of God will be on the hit list as a bad word. Government intrusion has set that course.
Therefore, I agree with ladybugs statement.."We ain't going to turn to God as a nation."
The Atheists are growing stronger and stronger. Religious fanatic groups with their own versions of God and their driven beliefs will weaken it more and more and more. Those like the Westboro Baptists...those types are growing.
Sunshine...who are you referring to?
Just like the Pharisees, I see a whole lot of legalism instead of compassion. They learned their lesson, when will we?
1. Love God 2. Love your neighbor AS yourself 3. Whatever you do to the LEAST among you, you do to me.
This is the Bible in a nutshell. Follow these and the rest will fall in line.

notSocialist: "Yup. Need the Big House, two cars (at least), the flat screens, the smart phones for all the kids... no parents at home"...
And these are just the folks on food stamps and welfare.

God gave all people, simple rules to follow but people think they are so special that we try to push Him aside and do evil things like aborting babies or killing or lying or stealing or as little as refusing to worship Him.
You see, He will not be mocked and if you take the time to just read Revelation you will find God wins. So, now that you know God wins...do you want to line up with Almighty God and what He wants and win, or, do you want to back those things He is apposed to and lose? Seems simple to me.

Who got greedy...most of us. It's one thing to improve, but to obsess with wanting everting if another has it, even when it will break the ecomony, is sin. Greed created jobs lost to foreign countries. Greed led to companies closing. Greed led to marriage notbeing enough or waiting to have sex until marriage or cheating on your spouse. Greed led to the mess in Washington.
What's left...to recognize that we are in need of God's leading and we have to turn away from the sin that got us to where we are.
Who got greedy ???

Moral decline started with job loss,=family breakdown = decaying cities= drugs = gangs == on and on
What I've done...I guess not nearly enough. I love God with all my heart and work at pleasing Him.
Have I made a difference...it's not about me.
I guess p o r n o g r a p h y is a bad word here. I would be happier if it just disappeared.
Our moral decline has very little or nothing to do with a lack of jobs. We have fewer jobs because we got greedy...
The moral decline is a result of people believing they are better and smarter than God. Then lying, stealing, abortion, ***********, killing, robbing, lust, demands to be taken care of, and on and on become ok.
The most important thing you can do is read the Bible, share with others what it has to say and stay true to God's leading. If each one of us does that, we will see a revival in America...and you can believe it. If we just say it is what it is...we lose.
You don't make sense Kozy.Where have you been for the last 2 decades? This whole country has been on a moral decline once we started elimanteing all the jobs in this country .

Anything that is mentioned locally ,,is met with resistance,critizism and complaing
And what would you suggest we all do ???
The country as a whole is sinking.And the only results we see coming from washington is more of the same .Finger pointing,name calling refusing to comprimise etc It's all about getting re-elected,money ,power and control.
And, concerning politics...it has much to do with what we believe. I believe that unless we turn to God as a nation, we are on the road to destruction.
So which political party and political movement is closer to that and which is more apart from that?
ladybug, what I said has nothing to do with whether I know it's happening...I hear from so many liberals that it's happening. I ask, why are you letting it? What are you doing to stop it? Why just say it is what it is? How can you complain and not lift a finger to stop it?
I know you were a good parent who's kids are doing well, but, it just can't stop there. So many kids are left to find ways to cope and they make terrible choices and when they see older people act and even say, it is what it is...they keep doing what they're doing and worse.
Are you really satisfied with the moral compass in the US and even Salem right now? At this rate of decline, what's going to happen to our Grandchildren ans Great Grandchildren? If you say, that's the way it is...you are really saying you don't care, and I know better.
I guess it's easier for some to pretend. Until they get that phone call at 1am. or knock on the door.
And i didn't insinuate "all " eiether . And it has nothing to do with politics or beliefs,But you can't post without insinuating otherwise,
