Moral Rot

Thoughts by Pastor Brad...

November 19’s reading from the One Year Bible Online in Proverbs 28:2 says; When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability.  History reveals that moral decay is a precursor to the fall of kingdoms in this world.  What is moral?  Morality is defined in the Word of God especially in His ten commandments.  Our world is falling apart morally and many of us are caught up in the trap.  Our nation will go down someday before the coming of Jesus like all other powers before us.  Pornography, the degradation of the divine institution of marriage, homosexuality, human trafficking, pedophilia, and the promotion of fornication or sex before marriage is killing our homes and lives.  Sex sells in this world.  Does immorality on TV or in the movies bother you or have you become immune to it?  God forbid that we allow the moral rot of this world to taint our purity in Christ.  We must make a stand as individuals, families, and the Body of Christ to go against moral rot that is killing our nation today.  This Proverb ends by stating that wisdom brings stability to a nation.  True wisdom comes from the fear or respect for God.  Let’s focus on the Lord and He will give us stability and a sure foundation as the world is rotting away.   God bless us on our journey to purity in Jesus Christ.
