We are living in a time unprecedented in the lives of our forbears dating back to the start of this nation. Our Declaration of Independence stated a firm belief that truths (self-evident and otherwise) were established by God. No matter how broken these courageous men may have been (and, yes, they were sinful men) they held that the standards of good and evil were ultimately decided by God.
Yet, today, much of our nation has turned its back on God-given truth to favor a system in which we can choose to determine what is good and evil for ourselves. It is no longer considered courageous or righteous to stand firm on what God has declared, it has become something now considered backwards and essentially uneducated. This is truth being redefined.
We Christians, at least in part, own some responsibility for this perception. We have allowed some to speak loudly and irresponsibly about what the Word of God says. We sometimes sat on the sidelines when Christianity was used as an excuse to demean/enslave/oppress other people who are created and loved by God. We sometimes have not raised our voices to condemn those voices and defend the ones who are attacked, even if it is to cost us something.
