Concerning the Future Consequences

An ad came on television the other day by a physician who was advertising a “deal” for in vitro fertilization.  That got me to thinking how strange our world has become.  Let me expand upon that.  Imagine that you were time traveling into today's present era from, say, 100 years to 150 years ago and think about what you would find.  I am only going to discuss a few things.

You would find massive amounts of abortions by physicians in clinics which back in your world over a century before was not only unlawful but sinful and immoral.  And, on the opposite end, you would find physicians and fertility clinics where women were being assisted to have children!  Think what you would think about how strange these two “developments’ are?

Remember, now, that you come from a past where homosexuality was, in fact, “in the closet.”  Now, you would find men marrying men and women marrying women.  And, these same sex partners are allowed by law to adopt children. Again, what you think about how strange that is?

Now, you go back to your own time and tell your contemporaries about the future just about these two social events and not about any of the technological develepments which would be a whole different matter.  What would the past think about such social strangeness of the future?  
In addition, there is the huge turning away from marriages not because of the lack of ministers as on the frontier but from a disdain of the real legal commitment to the other person.  And, there is the huge disconnect from viewing unmarried pregnancies as wrong and not to be encouraged.  The lack of marriage and the increasing unmarried pregnant women has drastically removed the social anathema for bastardy.
So, here were are in this new modern era.  I, for one, do not approve of it nor like it and am very concerned about our future.  Did God flood the world or destroy Sodom and Gomorrah for these same immoral and dissolute behaviors?  He might not do that again but I am concerned.  

Let me know what you think.

Let the light of our Lord shine upon you!

  1. Comparing this country now to 100-150 years ago as to marriage, sexual mores, etc is indeed shocking. Also, when comparing the issues of slavery, woman's and children's rights, workplace conditions, etc, etc. you'll find it worse back then. Cultures have been killing babies since forever. Men and women have corrupted the God given sanctity of married sex since forever. What really bothers me is how the professed Christians, especially Catholics who do not live their lives according to what they profess as regards the sanctity of life and all the aspects of procreation as proscribed by the Church. This, I think, is what perturbs God more than what the heathen may be doing.
