Exclusive: Greg Laurie sees U.S. going way of Israel, punished by God with takeover.
I think that our culture in the United States seems to be turned upside down. It seems that, in the perception of many, what was once considered good is now perceived as bad. What was once perceived as bad is now thought of as good.
We even see this reflected in our use of words. A long time ago, people used expressions like holy smoke or hunky dory. My generation said things like Far out, man! and Whoa, that is really heavy! And one word that has always stayed current is cool.
Another popular word today is hot, as in That is so hot. And something can be cool and hot at the same time.
Then, if something is really cool or super hot, we will say, That is bad! If you have a fast car, someone might ask you, How fast does that bad boy go? That is because good is now bad, and bad is now good.
If something is really bad or good, we might say, That is wicked! We mean that in a positive way. We might even insert the word killer. Then, if it is really great, we say, That is sick! It is just sick! So good is bad. Really good is killer and/or wicked. And really, really good is sick.
There was a time when, if someone was doing something immoral, we might say, That is bad. If someone was living with a girl or a guy, it was said, That is bad. If you were married, that was good. Nowadays, of course, that has been turned upside down. If you think marriage is between a man and a woman, then that is bad
not right, narrow.

This was really written in like 1972, right? I heard all this right after it was deemed passe’ to express surprise at the length of The Beatles haircuts. I’m expecting outrage at ‘$5.00 records and $1.00 cigars’, next.
I see rather, a revolt coming.

You need to lighten’ up, man...And quit bogartin’ tha
This *has* been going on for many years and it’s only been getting worse. Sin is accepted as though there’s nothing wrong with it and there won’t be a day of reckoning where we all have to give account of ourselves to the Lord. It’s easy to laugh now when we have a lot of control over ourselves and our lives, which God has given us so He may see what we choose, but it won’t be when all of our control is taken away and we are completely and totally at His mercy. The whole Bible tells us that God is only long-suffering, not wanting to see any perish if they might be saved. Many have gone beyond the fear of God, and have been lulled by Satan’s messages into thinking they don’t need to fear His wrath and everlasting Hell, and instead believe that God is blind to sin, but if they don’t repent they will find out the truth. May God bless you for posting this warning.
Thank you. May God bless you as well.
