Male and Female He Created Them
“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.”
Decay of Conscience
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.

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.
