In our current culture, those who don’t know Christ wander through life with no moral compass. Proverbs 21:2 states, “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes.” As mentioned in last Sunday’s message, their behavior falls in line with the second law of Thermodynamics. This simply means everything tends to wear out, run down, or stop working. Things move from order to disorder and from organization to chaos.
People with a great deal of life experience can look back and compare the culture today with that of 50 or 60 years ago. The difference is significant. The behaviors and values of people today would have been appalling years ago.
The culture is blind to the values of God. They walk to the drumbeat of a different god. The pathway leads to moral decay. They are blind to the truth of God.
That is sad. However, something that is equally disturbing, maybe even worse, is that Christians follow the culture at a distance. They seem to be blind to the desires of God. The truth is that the behavior of many Christians today would surpass the behavior of the culture 100 years ago.
Who is leading? It appears that the blind culture is leading many of the Christian culture. Both could be called blind to the clearly marked path God lays out in the Bible.
We need to have our eyes open to influences lest we, too, become blind.
