June used to be known as the “wedding” month when a man and woman came together in holy matrimony, usually in a church, to demonstrate the God-given origin and covenant of marriage.
Our wedding, though not in June, took place on October 10, 1976, before 300 people at Harper Church. The wedding announcement stated: “We believe that the wonderful God of the universe has called us to serve him together in the beauty of holiness.”
Today the month of June has become “Pride Month” with numerous parades and celebrations around the nation. Some members of the current administration want it to become “Pride Summer.”
Pride is usually a sin.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27).
The assault on biblical sexual morality began in America a generation ago– and has been relentless. It started with Hollywood stars casually committing adultery and normalizing it in the culture. Then the youth rebellion of the 60’s popularized sex before marriage, which eventually collapsed the God-given institution of wedlock in the early 21st century.
The final piece of sexual confusion/destruction comes from the transgender movement: We don’t even know if we’re male and female anymore–which is a state of madness.
Here’s the simple truth: “Male and female God created them.”
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.
