“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” – Isaiah 5:20
The Bible warns us to not do evil and call it good and yet it’s been happening for all of mankind. There are probably many things that the above passage of the Bible can refer to but I want to talk about human sexuality, traditional procreative marriage, and the results of failing to adhere to God’s plan for humankind.
Back in the 60s the sexual revolution began which changed the way many people view sex, marriage, and contraceptives. Was this the beginning of our problems? Not by any stretch of the imagination. Remember, Margaret Sanger began the Birth Control League about 100 years ago which later became Planned Parenthood. She was a eugenicist who wanted to control what she viewed as inferior races, mainly the Black Nation. She wanted to use sterilization and birth control pills as a means of accomplishing her eugenic philosophy.
The use of birth control fueled promiscuity because people could have sex without the consequences of pregnancy. Soon casual or recreational sex became accepted by our society.
Following the acceptance of “free love” which was actually casual sex, the natural progression was for men to have sex with other men and women to have sex with other women. And that too is now being accepted by many in our society.
This misplaced compassion to say that people should be able to love whoever they want is a stumbling block; not taking into account what God said about homosexual relations. And now many like the President of the United States and NAACP have come out in support of homosexual marriage. Same-sex marriage is anti-natural marriage and procreation. Homosexual couples cannot procreate. They cannot obey God’s command to “be fruitful and multiply.”
The next step will be for those who want to live in polygamist relationships to demand their rights to do so. Oh yeah, I forgot, that’s beginning to happen already. Recently in Sao Paulo, Brazil a notary has accepted a civil union between three people. This has sparked a controversy for now. Soon it too will be accepted by our society and they will be fighting for their right to get married.
In a recent movie, Savages, the main actors, two men and a woman, were in a sexual relationship. In the trailer, after introducing the two men she proclaims, “and yes, I’m with both of them.”
We are sliding down a slippery slope and there seems to be no end in sight. We need to find a way to stop the descent before there is no way to turn back, before we self-destruct. God is the answer. He, and only He, is able to help us to return to being a moral society. Yes there will always be some element of sin in our society as humans have a propensity towards sinning but as a whole people can make good moral decisions with the help from God.
