I believe author, Reb Bradley, hit the nail right on the head in an article he wrote for WORLD NET DAILY, and I quote,
The simple truth is that the individuals who have contributed to America’s moral decadence are lacking one specific virtue. They are deficit a certain character quality necessary to maintain a civilized society. That key ingredient is SELF-CONTROL. We as a nation have moral problems today, because our individual members do not have the ability to adequately restrain themselves.
In modern America most individuals are ruled by their passions---- their lack of self-restraint----they cannot say “NO” to themselves. If they had the virtue of SELF-CONTROL, they and our society would not be so OUT OF CONTROL. “ (end quote)
REB BRADLEY, WORLDNETDAILY.COM
If you are a student of GOD’S WORD you understand that the moral and social climate of the world is going to continue to deteriorate as the time for Christ’s return draws ever closer.
Yes these are PERILOUS TIMES, but if you’ll pardon my grammar, “We ain’t seen nothing’ yet!”
How should you and I as Christians respond to these PERILOUS TIMES? Should we just give up? Should we wave the white flag of surrender? Should we dig a fox hole and jump in?
ANSWER: NONE OF THE ABOVE!
In Hebrews 13:5 the Lord promised He would never leave or forsake us. That means no matter how perilous life becomes….no matter how difficult it is to live in this wicked
world……the LORD’S presence will always be with us!
