Decay of Conscience & How School Has Changed
You can only change a person, situation, or even nation if you properly analyze the problems and then apply God-given solutions to alter or transform them.
In the Bible the key word meaning “change” is the word repentance. It literally means to “re-think,”–to change your heart and mind.
Last week we looked at two factors in the decay of conscience in our nation–divide and conquer (the destruction of marriage and the family), and moral subversion–the crippling effects of sexual sin.
Here are the final three factors in our 21st century decay of conscience.
Truthful Knowledge in an Era of Deception
One of the greatest problems in our rapidly changing world is finding the truth due to government coverups, Big Tech censorship, and the erosion of biblical principles.
Fake News is becoming the norm.
Starting with virtuous hearts, we must personally turn our attention to the mind. 2 Peter 1:5 tells us:
“And to your virtue, add knowledge.”
How do we find truthful knowledge in a era of deception?
The Pilgrim Legacy
I hope you prayed for the Dobbs v. Jackson abortion case that was argued today before the U.S. Supreme Court. After fifty years of the greatest holocaust in human history, this Mississippi appeal provides an opportunity to limit abortions in our nation or possibly reverse Roe v. Wade.
The decision will not be announced until June 2022, but between now and then we must intercede for our justices to do right according to the U.S. Constitution, the laws of God, and the consciences of honest human beings.
The right to life in America–the most basic of human rights–goes back to the Pilgrims of Plymouth, Plantation. Here is the Pilgrim legacy we must renew in our day.
