This is in response to Leon Ceniceros’s letter of Dec. 7, entitled “Was it always this bad?” The answer to that question, of course, is no, it was not. The main reason for all the negative changes in our great land is the substitution of the bible and its guiding principles with a liberal secularism in most facets of public life. Where the Eternal Creator and His creeds were once revered in this country, one now finds a relative moralism.
What feels good is the new directive. It is more common for a teenager to be exposed to drugs, guns, violence, alcohol, casual sex, and cigarettes than a bible or anything holy. Not only is the bible missing from schools, television, music, movies and government, God & Jesus are often mocked in those same forums. In fact, in many areas of the country, Christians are mocked more often for their beliefs than homosexuals are for theirs! Kids in public schools are taught that we likely evolved from apes and that man determines what is right and wrong. There is no divine code of ethics for these vulnerable young minds to adopt.
So, is it any wonder that our nation is falling apart, much as ancient Rome did centuries ago? A major revival in this land is our only hope for redemption.
