Information and communication available at your fingertips. Instant gratification. Living in the moment dulls any sense of the thought of eternity....the utimate Big Picture. "Life in the fast lane". "Freedom of choice". Thinking "out of the box" (nonconformal, creative thinking) is being slowly dissolved. God's Truth is still considered a "right to believe" but no longer considered a mandate on behaviour. The Christian beliefs this nation was founded upon are being compromised. Have you noticed? These cowboys know what life is really about.
MAN is a moral creature by virtue of
transcendent wisdom intrinsic to a moral code that is immune to the instincts
and impulses of any one generation — instincts that hold animals captive, but
from which man is free to escape. However, when humans abandon absolute morality
in favor of the rights and wrongs relative to their own time period, they
voluntarily constrain themselves to the instincts and impulses of one
generation. They thus partake of the same circumstantial basis to which animals
are in bondage and, in so doing, conjoin themselves to animals, i.e., to a form
of life that is incapable of moral behavior. As we have seen, animals are
incapable of moral behavior in an absolute sense. They have knowledge provided
only by their immediate environment; and in the absence of human intelligence,
as they store, retrieve, and process this knowledge, they do so with an intent
and expectancy whose only thrust is immediate gratification.
Psalms 92: 1-9
1 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep . 6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this. 7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish ; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:8 But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.9 For, lo, thine enemies , O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish ; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
