Sin kills the soul when unforgiven. It also has a numbing effect on other people’s morals, particularly the younger generation. It creates an acceptability of immorality not existent in the former. The result is: the younger ones grow less offended by greater immorality. What offended the previous generation becomes the accepted normal of the one following.
That’s why James Russell Lowell was right in saying, “They enslave their children’s children who make compromises with sin.” That’s also why we can’t take comfort from saying we aren’t as bad as Genesis 6:5 when “every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.” Immortality doesn’t have to be that bad. Indeed, it cannot be that bad. God’s truth in Biblical Judaism and Biblical Christianity powerfully resists it becoming that bad. His word has too deeply impacted western culture to allow our return to Genesis 6.
However, we don’t understand that it isn’t necessary for us to revert that deep in sin for God to judge nations, even if he doesn’t presently end history with Christ’s second coming. All we need is to fall FROM the truth Moses revealed to the world and Jesus Christ personally perfected in his ministry. THAT sin America has committed. And therefore we’re ripe for Judgment. – Fini –
