Secular "progressives" have been tearing down the moral foundation of civil society, the concept of absolute, divine truth, especially the last 50 years. Instead, we are reverting to the biblical days of the Judges when "everyone did what was right in his own eyes." Absolute, divine truth is spoken of in Romans 1:18, "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness." Rom. 1:25, "who exchanged the truth of God for the lie...." Rom. 2:2, "But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things." Rom. 2:8, "but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth...indignation and wrath." Such absolute, divine truth was passed down from generation to generation in our churches, our homes, and even in our schools. The sexual revolution has destroyed most homes and government policy enables sexual immorality and out of wedlock births. Hosea 8:7 says, "They sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind." There can be revival and healing in the land when God's people pray and proclaim the Truth of God's Word. By the way, justice and truth go hand in hand, "For all His ways are justice, A God of truth..." (Deut. 32:4). "No one calls for justice, Nor does any plead for truth" (Isa. 59:4). "Justice is turned back... For truth is fallen in the street" (Isa. 59:14). (Note the Hebrew poetic parallelism). Wake up America!
