Good and bad, right or wrong and acceptable verses evil, how can you tell the difference? At one point in America, this wasn’t that difficult. However, ever since liberal ideology took over public education, schools have slowly eliminated moral principles from classrooms. Subsequently, its been like a run away caboose going down the wrong side of the tracks.
And Jesus said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person,” Mark 7:20-23.
Two Supreme Court Cases set this all in motion. On June 25, 1962, the United States Supreme Court decided in Engel verse Vitale that a prayer approved by New York Board of Regents violated the first amendment. A year later, Abington School District v. Schempp disallowed public Bible readings in classrooms for the same reason. While groups like the ACLU celebrated these two decisions as a victory, the foundation of education was removed.
But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men,” Acts 5:29.
When the words of Peter were rejected by the leaders of the United States of America, this opened the door for the political correct movement to be born. Now alive and well, this invisible book is the new Bible, dictating what is appropriate and inappropriate. The media is the judge, condemning the guilty through smear campaigns while shining the spot light on those who play ball, usually the Hollywood elite. Until this trend is reversed, I fear that this train will continue to go down the wrong side of the tracks until a spiritual awakening leads people back where God wants us to be.
