"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2
One of the questions I always ask in Discovery 1 is “Do you think morals change?” Most of the older people will answer yes, while younger ones will often have a puzzled look on their faces. I then give the following example of one of the many changes I have seen in my life. In 1963 when I joined the police department, if you were married and had a girl friend, you would be fired immediately for conduct unbecoming of an officer. In 1995 when I retired, if you were married and did not have a girlfriend, you were considered odd.
If we ask ourselves how this corruption of morals could happen the answer is simple. Television, movies, and the media have slowly promoted sinful life styles into our homes. In society, we are being told we have to be tolerant of everyone and their beliefs, with the exception of Christians. Laws are being made that allow and even promote biblically immoral activity. God’s word tells us not to conform to the world, but to be transformed. The question is how do I do that? The answer is simple; join us for 40 Days of Transformation, starting tomorrow!
