“THE MARK OF A DOOMED
SOCIETY” – I
“And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth,nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Adamah and Zeboi, which the Lord overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath.” Deuteronomy 29:23 From these words we can understand that Moses writing about 500 years after the destruction of the cities of the plain, had left very apparent results upon the face of the earth, and he was able to draw the attention of the people of the day to the evidence of the judgment, by them who are passing through that area.
“…….. as it was in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah so shall it be…”
Have you noticed, how the world is changing before our very eyes, and society continuing in its downward spiral of greed and selfishness, at an unprecedented speed? The moral value and care sit at an all time low. Compared to just few years ago, we have completely a different set of ideas about what constitutes acceptable behavior. Only look back, Fifteen, Twenty years ago when people had a much tighter grip on their moral fabric and would hold themselves and each other to it.
“Gay Rights Activists Demand Open Housing.” “Church Torn Over Ordination of Homosexuals to the Ministry.” “Gays Seek to End Job Discrimination” Such are the headlines in our papers today. Surely even Twenty years ago anyone would be scoffed in unbelief if someone had told them that such things would be happening today. Yet we find virtual Sodom and Gomorrah developing right before our very eyes.
What is it like to see the sights and to hear the sounds of Sodom and Gomorrah? Did you ever imagine that 4th grade boys sit for training sessions on how they could have intimate relationships one another? And someone trying to justify such a thing?we are witnessing how militant these LGBT activists have become in forcibly inserting gender into every imaginable field, regardless of how inconvenient or ridiculous that is. Consider these deep, slippery slopes that have taken place only the last two decades:
– Initially, the homosexual lobbyist groups said, “All we want is to be left alone.”
-Then , a few years later, they said, ” We just want our lifestyle to be accepted.”
– Not longer after that it was , ” We want our lifestyle to be legally recognized as a civil union.”
– And then it went all the way to , ” We want nothing less than marriage.” Which since the creation has been defined and accepted as a sacred union between a man a woman.
– Soon after that they started to demand, ” that we teach children in schools to uphold, homosexuality as a virtue.”
– When one thought there was no line to cross we are subjected to yet another level of low! Today we are faced with the bizarre of the so-called, ” gender liberation”; which seeks to eliminate “male-female distinctions.” altogether.
According to this new perversion, not only are there not genders anymore, but it’s almost even a daily thing – how one feels from day to day, and that nobody has the right to tell you you should not feel like that.” We have moved from the idea of male and female into five genders. Now we have entered the world of trans genders. People are called in some biological gender that the world calls male and female; but they are really male, but a female in a male body or a female in a male body!! We have come to a day when the unnatural become natural-the ordinary!! This is the “tidal wave” that is spreading throughout the nation and is having a disastrous consequences.

How to be Saved …and KNOW it – your most important stop on this site.
The Bible reveals two ways which people are following to get into heaven. One way, the true way, is God’s way. God’s way into heaven is the way of peace and truth and righteousness. It is the only way approved of God. This way centers in the Lord Jesus Christ who said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6). The Bible declares that there is another way. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov. 14:12).
There are so many popular ways today filled with lost multitudes all over the land, such as the way of morality, the way of respectability, the way of religion, the way of churchianity, the way of baptism, the way of christening, the way of confirmation, the way of penance, the way of confession, the way of “doing the best I can”, the way of self, the way of education, the way of philosophy, the way of false isms and cults that crowd the street. Little wonder then when we speak to people about the way of salvation, that so many have asked, “How can I know which is the true way? There are so many different ideas and so many religions.”
But there is ONE difference between God’s way of salvation and man’s way, and that difference is found in a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. You will notice that man leaves Christ out of the center of his way. You will discover that the modern false cults and isms demote Christ to a mere man and add something to what He has already done for your salvation and mine. We become children of God through a supernatural birth. Jesus said to Nicodemus: “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Jesus also said, “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” (John 3:7)
