Our Nation is Losing Its Understanding of Morality

A recent Gallup survey found that a majority of liberals deem abortion, "gender transition," and pornography "morally acceptable."

What can people of faith do about it?

First, realize the gravity of these shifts. These changes don't just threaten our nation's shared understanding of virtue, but also our nation itself. As founding father John Adams said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Second, don't pretend that this is anything other than a strategic effort to destroy the role of religion and morality in society. Consider the evidence from our own vice president of public policy, James Gottry:

The Ten Commandments once graced the halls of many public buildings; now they are targeted for removal. Public prayer was once expected and appreciated; now it is mocked and frequently banned from public events…. The Bible was once taught in public schools and esteemed in the public square; now our societal devotion to Scripture has been replaced by the gods of sexuality, self-fulfillment, and salvation through socialism.

Suffice it to say, our once-shared acknowledgment of morality and absolute truth has disintegrated. Those who advance this new vision of America are determined to see its fulfillment. We can no longer take for granted that our government officials will embrace the First Amendment and defend the freedoms of expression and belief.

Freedom-loving Americans have two choices. Will we sit quietly by and witness the disintegration of our once-great nation? Or will we remember that ours is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, and use our voice to turn these United States back toward the principles upon which it was founded?

Bible-believing Christians also have two choices. Will we wash our hands of this culture, lamenting what it could be but losing the courage to stand for truth? Or will we embrace the charge to be salt and light in our communities, and prayerfully advocate for what is good, true, and righteous in our communities?

We have long had a national conscience…it's time for that conscience to awaken.

Darkest Day for Religious Liberty in America

Yesterday was one of the darkest days for religious liberty in America. Forty-nine out of 50 Democrat senators and 12 out of 50 Republican senators turned their backs on the institution of marriage and voted “yes” to pass the misnamed Respect for Marriage Act (RMA). The legislation now goes to the House, where it will likely be passed, and then onto the President for his final signature.
