There is rightly much lamenting these days about the decline of American culture and Western civilization. Victor Davis Hanson writes about it almost every week.

Turning away from the God of love.
What the world needs now is love, God’s love.
The infamous meeting of global elites in Davos, Switzerland, just concluded. It’s easy to take lightly the WEF gathering of the rich, famous, and powerful due to their hypocritical use of private jets (over 1000 lined up on the tarmac) while promoting climate change hysteria.
But we mustn’t ignore their lust for power via globalism or one world government.
There were some other signs of lust in Davos–a huge uptick in “escort girls.”
Which brings me to the lie of a Strange Woman.
The National Day of Prayer is this Thursday, May 5. I encourage you to spend special time talking to God.
The more you pray, the more you’ll understand God’s burden for people and nations. And you’ll learn that God is love (1 John 4:8).
The world understands little about real love. For some, it is equated with sexual desire and lust. For others, it is a mood that you can fall in or out of. The confusion exists because we’ve separated the definition of love from its author and greatest expression, Jesus Christ.
Love is the key to our 21st century problems. But how must we live it?
