    Rampant crime rates, out of control children, rampant divorce rates, corrupt politicians, rampant immorality, etc,etc,etc : What in the world has gone wrong with our society today ? A society must have some sort of set standards of right and wrong to maintain order in the society , otherwise everyone would just do whatever was right in their own eyes , and we would then have anarchy ! Right and wrong is determined in our society today by whatever the majority wants through the voting system . If you can get enough people pushing for something , even though it may be wrong, if you can get enough people pushing for it , it can be made to be the right, or law of the day, EVEN THOUGH IT REALLY ISN’T RIGHT! Simple numbers now determine what is right in our society, not any TRUE sense of right. All laws , no matter how right they may be, can now be challenged , simply ere wal by numbers Thus anything can now be made to be O K , there is no wrong anymore, there are no controls of any kind , the whole society becomes lost, adrift ! Sicker and SICKER things over time become acceptable in our society under this system : just take an honest look around you today ! THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES LOSE THEIR OWN SENSE OF RIGHT AND WRONG under this system , and FIND THEMSELVES BEING MANIPULATED INTO ACCEPTING THINGS THAT THEY NORMALLY WOULD NOT , and this happens on a society wide basis ! To make matters even worse : so called hate laws have been passed forbidding any criticism of these evils in our society under threat of prison, in the process COMPLETELY TRAMPLING ON OUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH RIGHTS ! GOVERNMENT NOW TELLS US EXACTLY WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT SAY UNDER THREAT OF PRISON JUST LIKE THE OLD SOVIET UNION : SO MUCH FOR A FREE SPEECH SOCIETY : WE DEFINITELY DO NOT NOW LIVE IN ONE ! And so if we are not even allowed to identify the problems in our society under threat of prison for so called hate , we certainly can never rectify the problems, if we are not even allowed to identify the problems ! AND THERE YOU HAVE THE SORRY STATE OF OUR SOCIETY TODAY ! How did we get into this mess you ask : Well I will tell you ! Previously our society had a set standard of right and wrong to maintain order : They were called THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ! But then our society became so called modern and progressive and discarded God and his laws, claiming that they were outdated old repressive beliefs from the dark ages etc . And so with THE CONTROLS OF OUR SOCIETY , GOD’S LAWS , discarded, there was nothing left to prevent our society from sliding into an anything goes , anything is O K , out of control state . And so of course crime rates, divorce rates, etc all spiral out of control because again THE CONTROLS, GOD’S LAWS , have been discarded for so called progress ! You can spend all the billions of dollars you want on more police, more jails, more courts etc : But these are just temporary bandaid solutions that will not last because they don’t address THE ROOT CAUSE OF OUR SOCIETIES DEMISE : LEAVING GOD AND HIS LAWS ! Most people think that this situation in our society occurred on it’s own through natural degeneration , but the shocking truth is that destructive philosophies were deliberately introduced into our society by someone with full knowledge of the damage they would cause as part of a deliberate plan unknown by the blind general public. The plan is to deliberately bring the society to such an out of control state that the people will accept and even ask for laws that will totally enslave them , in order to bring an end to the chaos, the people being totally unaware or unable to believe that THE WHOLE THING WAS ORCHESTRATED FOR THIS VERY PURPOSE ! The bible referred to this as THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY working in the world. These are the evil antichrist forces at work in our present world working towards setting up the end time antichrist world government long ago forecast in the bible for the end time . Order would automatically be restored to our society simply by returning to God’s laws ! The only person in history , and this is recorded historic fact, not belief : The only person in history to rise from the dead PROVING THAT IN HIM AND ONLY IN HIM IS THE POWER OF ETERNAL LIFE , AND ALSO PROVING THAT HE IS THE ONLY TRUE MESSIAH : IS OF COURSE ” JESUS CHRIST ! ” No other religious leader conquered death , only JESUS CHRIST ! Ask him to come into your life and make you a new spiritually born again creature and then ask for his Holy Spirit to teach and guide you . MOST IMPORTANT : WHEN WE SAY CHRIST WE DO NOT MEAN ORGANIZED RELIGION WHICH GIVES GOD A BAD NAME , BUT WE MEAN CHRIST’S ONE TRUE SOLELY SPIRITUAL CHURCH !

    1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. "

    " c. Why did Jesus give Himself for our sins? That He might deliver us from this present evil age. In many ways, the Galatians were battle with and sometimes losing against this present evil age. They needed to know that Jesus had come to save them from this present evil age.

    i. The particular word for evil denotes someone who is not content in being corrupt themselves; they also must corrupt others, and draw them into their same destruction.

    ii. The idea behind the word deliver is not deliverance from the presence of something, but deliverance from the power of something. We will not be delivered from the presence of this present evil age until we go to be with Jesus. But we can be experience deliverance from the power of this present evil age right now."

    You mean God's Peace?

    Matthew 7:12
    In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the prophets.

    Galatians 5:14
    The entire Law is fulfilled in a single decree: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Luke 6:31
    Do to others as you would have them do to you.

    James 4:17
    Therefore, whoever knows the right thing to do, yet fails to do it, is guilty of sin.
    (And whoever does not, is not)

    John 9:41
    “If you were blind,” Jesus replied, “you would not be guilty of sin.
    But
    since you claim you can see, your guilt remains.”

    2 Peter 2:21
    It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than to have known it and turned away from the holy commandment passed on to them.

    Romans 14:1
    Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on his opinions.

    Romans 14:14
    I am convinced and fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for him it is unclean.

    Romans 14:20
    Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a man to let his eating be a stumbling block.

    Romans 15:1
    We who are strong ought to bear with the shortcomings of the weak and not to please ourselves.

    1 Corinthians 8:9
    Be careful, however, that your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak.

    1 Corinthians 9:22
    To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men, so that by all possible means I might save some of them.

    Romans 13:1-7
    Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.

    Sometimes it's hard to live in a fallen world; but then, imagine if the world was perfect. We'd be so bored that our brains would ooze out of our noses. As it is, there's lots to do: we can shout to the Lord and make a joyful noise; we can praise the Lord in the streets unashamed of His Gospel; we can pray for a world that so needs Jesus; we can share Christ with everyone; we can get persecuted, beaten, ostracized, and imprisoned for Christ; we can do God's work, overcome evil with good, and store up much treasure in heaven. WooHoo!!

    You speak of a set standards of right and wrong and identify the 10 commandments specifically while at the same time ignoring your own standard as you present false witness.

    you said: "so called hate laws have been passed forbidding any criticism of these evils in our society under threat of prison" This is a lie. your freedom of speech remains the same as it was 50 years ago. You are free to spread horribly lies about gays, you can call black people disgusting names. You can deny the holocaust all day long. and it is perfectly legal for you to do so. Of course there will be consequences to choosing to say horrible things. Good people will decide they want nothing to do with you. you might get shunned, people may not want you around their children. But you wont be arrested.

    What could be worse than being condemned already because of unbelief ?

    Thieves, idolators, adulterers, those who serve demons, gays, liars will not enter heaven.

    No one greedy even, nor anyone covetous, will even see the Kingdom of God.

    So then , who is telling lies about anyone ?

    Romans 6:14
    For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

    Ephesians 2:8
    For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,

    Galatians 5:18
    But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

    Ecclesiastes 3:7 A time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

    Proverbs 10:32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked, what is perverse.

    James 1:19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;

    Psalm 141:3 Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!

    1 Peter 3:10 For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit;

    Proverbs 10:11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.

    Brother : I am not saying that the law can save us : but the law was given to keep the worldy people under some kind of control : it was never meant to give salvation , but just to try and keep some kind of order in the worldly society : For the law was not made for a righteous man , but for the ungodly !!!

    you don't have a foot to stand on at all.

    It is totally untrue what you are saying : If you try any if those things you mentioned you will be arrested : You must be living in a cave or something !
