Michael Brown on Not Enough Fingers to Plug Up All the Holes in the Dike

If you are actively involved in the culture wars, trying to stem the tide of moral decline, you can often feel like the boy who tried to plug the holes in the dike with his own fingers. Soon enough, you run out of fingers. Or toes. Or people who can help with their fingers and toes. There are just too many holes to plug. A total collapse seems inevitable.

A case in point would be the recent Gallup poll indicated that 70% of Americans now support same-sex “marriage,” including 55% of Republicans. So much for pushing back against the redefining of marriage.

As Gallup noted, “U.S. support for legal same-sex marriage continues to trend upward, now at 70%—a new high in Gallup’s trend since 1996. This latest figure marks an increase of 10 percentage points since 2015, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that all states must recognize same-sex marriages.”

As for Republicans, the shift in support has been especially dramatic, from 16% in 1996 to 55% today. And this is the so-called conservative political party?

Do you remember the day when it made sense to boycott a company that supported gay activism as an expression of your moral convictions? To do so today—really, for many years now—would basically mean not using a major credit card, not using a cell phone, not using a computer, not flying, not driving a car, not watching sports and so on.

Then there’s the extreme sex-ed curriculum in our children’s schools, along with radical LGBTQ+ activism on their college campuses—not to mention Big Tech’s censoring of opposing ideas. The list is almost endless.

And this is just one aspect of the culture wars. I haven’t said anything about a host of other important issues that are impacting our nation in negative and destructive ways. Who has enough fingers to plug all these holes? Who has the emotional fortitude?

That’s why I tweeted, “If you feel like it’s your role as a believer to stop the spiritual & moral decline of society, you’ll quickly become discouraged & worn out. But if you concentrate on advancing God’s kingdom purposes by positively impacting one life at a time, you’ll be encouraged & renewed.”
