Last Saturday Shirley and I drove through one of the established suburbs of our town called “Parkwood.” When we attended school adjacent to it in the late 1960s, the lawns and yards were neatly cut and tidy.
Today, half of the lawns are weed infested and overgrown. Same is true of many other areas. Post-Covid blues? Another problem with the supply chain (lawnmowers)?
I think not.
We are experiencing an amazing decay of conscience in America.
Another tragic school shooting this week reminds of a great decay of conscience we face in America and the Western World.
There are practical solutions that can help. But we need a full-blown revival of conscience to truly stem the tide of evil.
Here are some insights from a great American revivalist–Charles Finney. He tells us what brings a decay of conscience to a once-godly nation.
The mass shootings in three states this week point to a deadness of conscience that is rising in America. Victor Davis Hanson is so concerned he wrote “Imagining the Unimaginable” in his weekly column.
To encourage hope, for the next few weeks, I will focus on each of us awakening our God-given conscience to be an answer to the problem.
