Is Our Country Falling Apart At The Seams?
Date posted - March 28, 2013
I have always maintained that when we as a society experience social, cultural, and moral decay, our society over time will eventually fail.
Now if you say our civilization is not experiencing any such decay, let me ask you: Do we respect the sanctity of life any more? How about the morality of what marriage ACTUALLY is. (call me narrow minded, but throughout history those cultures not adhering to the principle of marriage between a man and woman, have not endured, Egypt, Greek, and Roman civilization to name a few)
Then there is the whole debate on killing of babies vs the rights of a woman. Nobody ever talks about the rights of the baby. Why? I would challenge anyone to tell me we as a society have not lost many of the morals that hold a society together. Then lets go to the greed and laziness of our society. It is becoming more and more socially acceptable to take what we have not worked for. So many today want what is ‘owed’ to them. (entitlements) It has become so easy for people to manipulate the system. And we just let it go on. We soon become so reliant on the gov’t that we become complacent and apathetic. So, is our society on the decline of our doing? Or lack of not doing?
Yes, I check out MSNBC, CNN, FOX, but I also do my own extensive research. I come to my own conclusions. This is not intended to support any political party, religious affiliation, or even Fox News or MSNBC. I love this country, it is the best in the world, but we are not perfect, we have problems.
You may not agree, but convince me if you think I am wrong. I was prompted to write this because of an article I read. Before you respond please read it, ALL of it. http://bibleblender.com/2012/biblical-lessons/how-declining-morals-cause-civilizations-to-die
