Moral Absolutes Ping.
Hey, it's the weekend! Aren't these sick stories supposed to wind down on Saturday???
I don't know about you, but does it seem as though we're reaping the whirlwind? Reject moral absolutes as too old fashioned, too strict, fanatical, too religious, and this is what we wind up with. But it's not even as bad as it's likely to get. All kinds of people and professional organizations are advocating "inter-generational" sex and have been for some years.
Fight it! It's better to fight it and lose than give up. One day we'll have to answer for everything we've done.
Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.

You have that right! A lot of people don't think we need God any more, but that's just not true. This is the kind of perversity that happens when people try to be their own gods. Yes, some people are strong enough to live relatively pure lives without God--not being pure enough to win salvation, of course--but most people will fall deeper into sin.
When I look at our society and see large majorities who no longer believe fornication or homosexuality is sin, I'm convinced we are fulfilling end-time prophecy. No one knows when Christ will return, of course, but he did predict a world like Sodom and Gomorah at the end of the age. Even 20 years ago, people hid their shame, but now they parade their sins with pride (another end-time prophecy). Then, they call us Christians evil for saying their sins are evil.
I only hope and pray others will read the Bible and come to know the Lord before it's too late, because I agree with little jeremiah--it's going to get REAL bad if this is the end of the age. Believe me, there will come a time when you won't be able to shield your kids from the perverts, because they will be in the schools, on TV, and in your neighborhoods (in much greater numbers than they are today).
Perhaps this isn't the end times. Perhaps God's patience hasn't run out. If so, we might just be able to join together against the perverts and restore morality in America. May it be so! For without God, we are indeed lost.
