I hate to remain skeptical but I'll believe it when I see it. Society continues to slide towards permissiveness. This isn't meant to sound pessimistic but realistic. This happened to Israel time and again and many other societies throughout history. And with Israel's case there where many prophets time and again warning them to no avail. I don't see anything that has changed.

My first religion professor at BYU had much the same observation. He said as civilizations went, there would be cycles of righteousness and unrighteousness. However, America as a civilization was just a little different. The cycles are like a graph, Righteous, unrighteous, then righteous again. Except the righteousness never comes up to the level of the previous rightenousness. And it is leading to the last days and the second coming of Christ.
And I agree society is becoming more permissive generally. however, you will find pockets, some very large pockets of people who still have the "old-fashioned" values, who listen to the word of God. We can create sanctuaries in our homes, teach our children the difference between right and wrong, and arm them for what they face today in the world. And I for one, won't keep quiet, I will stand for what I think is right. I may not make much of a difference with a lot of people, but I might make a difference with a few. And that is quite important. Anyway...
