Adam and Eve lived in a time of innocence. There was no shame in their world, no immorality, no darkness.
No sexual undertones, no bawdy jokes stepping on the line of inappropriateness, no snickers and side-ways glances.
Sometimes, when I look around at our culture, it really feels like the innocence is gone. I happened to catch about 3 seconds of the Star Trek crew watching Miley Cyrus’ video on somebody’s post on Facebook. I bet I don’t even have to say which one – if you have seen it, you know what I’m talking about.
Apalled. That was my reaction. Our culture has hit a new low.
It reminds me of how I visualized the Baal worship in the Old Testament when they had temple prostitutes. After the Baal worshippers became desensitized to all of this sexual activity, they started sacrificing their babies to their gods. What’s next for our culture?
The continuing saga of Sodom and Gomorrah.
How marvelous it is to turn away from all of that and dive back into our Father’s word to us.
Where his light shines through the darkness and his grace covers the rotting smells of our culture’s immorality.
Jesus has already triumphed over evil. It just doesn’t always look like it here on earth.
Thank you, dear Father, for helping us stay focused on you through your word.
