We live in a world in which personality is everything. Exposing ourselves in social media has become so important that people now believe that the worst of their lives is more likely to get them noticed. Personality at its extreme can bring notoriety and even riches.
When personality is wealth and character is cost, the direction is downward. A society’s strength is its shared moral values. There is no strength in personality. Every failed culture first slid slowly into the characterless abyss of moral foolishness; which turned into a free fall. At what point are we?
It was once thought that as we neared the bottom, we would come to our senses and turn back to the values of the Bible. It may not be too late, but make no mistake about what must happen; to change we must first seek God. The Bible clearly demonstrates that people and cultures must repent or be destroyed. The history books are a testament to this biblical principal and in our foolishness, history will record our demise. We will one day be a historical record that the future will mock and revile as we now ignorantly mock and revile our forefathers who understood the values of the God of the Bible.
