The Age Of Unreason

It is much easier to be in the crowd screaming the fate of the gladiator.

It is much easier to succumb to than resist temptation.

We live in a world where bullies are the victims and mere facial expressions implicate wrongdoing; where innocence is a crime and the crime is virtue, where people double down in defiance rather than turn from it. Our world is heading in a steady trajectory to the point of no return – where transgression nears the height of its full measure.

God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;  they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Romans 1:18-32

“God gave them over”  is a reference to people and their FREE WILL. God did not make them “that way.” People choose to do and be what they are.

“Seek the LORD while He may be found;

call on Him while He is near.

Let the wicked man forsake his own way

and the unrighteous man his own thoughts;

let him return to the LORD,

that He may have compassion,

and to our God,

for He will freely pardon.

Isaiah 55:6-7

  1. Aaammeeennn! Sis! Amen!!!!
    I heard the statistics that (un) Planned parenthood boasted of for 2017-18…
    332,757 babies murdered!
    That’s not counting the number of babies that had their lives cut off in other abortion venues…. I am not exaggerating when I say I am devastated by this…. 😭😭😭💔💔💔

    1. ❤️ I am in no way judging anyone that has had one- God forgives those that ask 🙏🏻 So happy you did not have to go through the grief of that robbery ❤️

      The fact that we have to fund these through our tax dollars is very disturbing to me, too..

    1. It has been weighing on my heart since I heard about a movie that is or did come out about a woman that worked for planned parenthood called Unplanned. The actress that played the main part was explaining the movie… well it tore me up 😔 ( I have since read that article you are talking about and almost posted about it- I chose not to- I saw the un- Godliness of it.. then it sparks the question in my heart: “Are we ONE NATION under God?” Really? I can’t truly say we are.

    1. It’s okay. It is good to take the time to look at stuff no matter how harsh it may be (*part of “Testing all things”). People have rushed to conclusion over things when it comes to condemnation especially with the Kentucky teenager in the MAGA hat without knowing the whole story.

      Our country is being torn primarily because of misinformation/disinformation.

    2. I just read up another article from a liberal source about the NY Abortion law that “softens” the situation by adding “if the mother’s health is at risk” on the headline.

      Abortion is the termination of life. Plain and simple. I have lived this. The only thing that can truly change a person’s stance on Abortion is if God gives the person a new heart.

      While people are still alive, there is hope for everyone, but the Bible warns us things will only get worse…

    3. Yes! That’s what I say to people all the time- new hearts are what is needed! The gift of an
      undeserved-new heart is what changed my life and stance on so many things that at one time I could have gave 2 hoots about!!!
