Society spinning ever further from God

Two recent statements in the media says "What was once acceptable is now obsolete" and "Children belong to the community." Both reflect the atheistic attitude of communist-type governments over the past century. They not only don't believe in God but even try to eliminate people who do.

People who use drugs are now referred to as having a sickness and that they need help. Nothing is mentioned about the real cause of the "sickness." Violation of God's laws is accepted as a new understanding or technology. It's never mentioned, but Sodom and Gomorrah is the new dream world that modern progressives advocate.

The morals that were prevalent (in the days that they were acceptable and now obsolete) were taught to most children in Christian or Jewish families and churches. Rape, incest, drunkenness, drug addiction, robbery, murder, theft, etc. were not common because of the simple fact that children were taught properly by their parents and their churches. Schools taught reading, math, spelling -- not all sorts of socialistic ideas to build a godless society.

Starting with the government program called Head Start, children have been gradually taken from the care of their parents into government-controlled programs. To promote Head Start the government campaigned for its acceptance by saying such drivel as "Many children don't even know how to use a fork," as if they never learned without Head Start. The program was advertised as being for poor children (as not being able to afford forks?) Before the program got under way, the schools put on a telephone campaign to get all children possible to enroll. That's how you get lots of government money. It's also how the government gets control of your children.

All this stuff is predicted in God's Word, the Bible.
