Moral Decay in America is in High Gear

By Ron Graham

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; …Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away,” 2 Timothy 3:1, 5. Paul lays out nineteen items here in his last letter to Timothy which exactly describe our society today. In the very first sentence he tells us that these things will all come to pass in the last days.


Our society’s decay is festering and accelerating at a phenomenal rate unlike any other time in the history of the U.S. It’s a simple, easily provable fact that should actually come as no surprise to those of us who study our Bibles since we have scripture verses like those which Paul wrote to Timothy.


“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution,” 2 Timothy 3:12. This, of course, is a verse none of us really want to see come to pass, but in all actuality it is coming to pass all over the globe. Even though the persecution of Christians has been ongoing for almost two-thousand years now, here in the U.S. it’s really just getting underway. Individually Christians have been persecuted in the U.S. for some time now and on occasion as a group. Currently, though, we see this persecution coming on the whole of Christendom in America. The reason for this is the decay of morals in our society. Moral decay didn’t just happen, but it is a symptom of a much larger problem. As a nation that was founded on God’s moral code of decency we’ve lost that foundation. Brothers and Sisters, we have watched as the liberal left has taken picks and shovels, broken the moral foundation, and thrown it away. People, we will not survive as a nation without our God given moral precepts. That’s a promise.


As decay enters into any object that’s perishable deterioration is ever so slight at first, but over time the process escalates in its scope and becomes so invasive that the item infected with the decay needs to be thrown out with all the other garbage. A society that is in decay because of its lack of morals will eventually be completely overtaken by the decay process if not halted in time. People, there will come a time when our society will be too far gone in immorality and it will need to be purged – completely destroyed. Think about it, what nation has ever endured long life after turning its back on God?


The second law of thermodynamics is entropy. Entropy is a fact not a theory. It happens and it happens everywhere in the known universe. Basically, entropy means that everything left to its self sooner or later will fall apart. Without God in our lives and in our country our society will continue experiencing entropy but at a highly accelerated rate. Is there any turning back, can we reverse the process of decay in this country? No! At least not at our current rate of descent, but nothing is impossible for God. Oh yeah, we kicked God out of every vestige of our government arena, our public schools, and we can even see God being replaced in our Christian churches with a feel good gospel of indulgences and materialism.


We are in freefall mode here in this wonderful country of ours. I’m not the only one who sees this phenomenon happening; I read comments on the web which confirm my prognoses. These comments aren’t the ramblings of wacky conspiracy theorists but are the views of some of the most venerated theologians of our time who are speaking out about the decay of our morals and the inevitable fall of our once great society. 


Let’s think about what’s happening currently here in this once great nation of ours. We can now see the production, promotion, and distribution of pornography in this country as a major economic player. There are literally billions of dollars being made off this perversion. Just fifty years ago who would have thought that the United States of America – the foremost country in the world in manufacturing and distribution, the greatest nation in terms of our humanitarian efforts and giving to faltering nations, and the number one nation in the world in terms of evangelism of the Christian Gospel – would now be almost completely consumed with the proliferation of pornography? If you think this immoral societal degradation isn’t a slap in the face of God, then you are part of the problem.


My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, that stigma alone is responsible for much of the immorality we see in our society today. People are becoming so entwined with this perversion that their minds are being warped and diluted. Many no longer see a difference between right and wrong. I’m constantly confronted with the news of the immorality of teachers in our public school system and what they are doing to the young students whose very lives they have been entrusted with nurturing and teaching. has a huge and growing list of female teachers who have been arrested and some imprisoned for sexually abusing the students in their charge. Something that was unheard of twenty-five years ago is now so prevalent in our society that it has become common place. After one of these instances with a female teacher, I read on, where a professor of a University disparaged the authorities for arresting these female teachers. He actually argued that those women teachers who entertain their male and female student in this way are only providing a needed service, a teaching lesson if you will. Condoning such sick and misguided behavior is only another sign of the decay that’s growing by leaps and bounds in our society today. By the way, most of these female teachers walk away with a slap on the wrist, while the male teachers who fall into this temptation are imprisoned for twenty years or more. Male or female the imprisonment should be the same. A child who is molested and abused is just as deeply scarred by women molesters as they are by male molesters. “He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but [he that is] perverse in his ways despiseth him,” Proverbs 14:2. This nation is becoming a despiser of God.


In my estimation, the real landslide of the decay of our society began years ago when we allowed the Bible to be taken out of our public schools. Soon after that we had the legalization of abortion and the teaching the lie of evolution as a fact not as a theory, even to the exclusion of any other possible scenario for life to have occurred on earth. Then, more recently, we’ve seen the teaching in our public schools of the abomination of homosexuality as being a fully acceptable and normal lifestyle. This teaching begins in kindergarten and in some instances pre-school. Also our students are being taught that the world’s religions are good and acceptable, all the while excluding Christianity.


The name “Jesus Christ” is becoming a bad word, which is nothing new to those who’ve used it for years as profanity, but to many it seems Jesus Christ is such a hateful name that they wish to see it eliminated from the world scene. Our Bibles are next on the list to be completely eliminated. Of course all believers know that this will be impossible. Why? “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away,” Matthew 24:35. Impossible task? Absolutely! I’ve recently read that Colorado and Minnesota are looking into condemning the Bible as hate speech, something that has already come to pass in our sister country to the North.


There are those who will continue to try to eliminate Gods word and any vestiges of His “antiquated morals” from society. They have gotten their way for a long time now and it’s time Christians began to stand up for God’s truth. 


Now these evil and perverse promoters of filth are going after our children. It’s not just teachers but the pornographers are after them also. Our children are now being exploited on film as well as on the street. Child pornography and prostitution are running rampant right here in this once beautiful and loving country of ours. Yes, these two evils are still illegal but for how long? In America, as well as other countries, there is a movement underway which is promoted by “NAMBLA”, the North American Man Boy Love Association. Their agenda is to eliminate the societal norm and legality of age requirements for their sexual pleasure.


Laws of the land that were voted into existence by the majority of the electorate are now being dismissed as unconstitutional by little evil men in long flowing black robes who have their own agendas. Doesn’t it conjure up visions in your mind of those dark minions belonging to the satanic realm? It’s like a Hollywood movie that has come horribly to life.  



“Alas, sinful nation, A people laden with iniquity, A brood of evildoers, Children who are corrupters, They have forsaken the LORD, They have provoked to anger The Holy One of Israel, They have turned away backward.” Isaiah 1:4 God can do wonders with His people, but His people must turn back to Him first. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14  We born again believers in Christ are His people, we must humble ourselves and pray and seek His face, we His people must turn from our wicked ways for God to heel the land.  


God shield us from what’s coming. 


God bless you all,
