Proverbs 24:3 says, "Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established." Wise men started the United States of America. They were civilized men taming a wild frontier. Today we have wild men in a civilized country. In America today, wisdom and insanity exist side by side.
Our beloved nation is a social schizophrenic—inspiring law-breaking in popular culture while increasing law-making in political culture. We can't have it both ways. For example, we often punish rapists at or near the full extent of the law, then merely slap the wrist of the pornographer whose immoral material motivated the rapist in the first place.
America is morally myopic—near-sighted in seeing clearly the crime of the criminal, but blurry-eyed in seeing how the background culture is in partnership with crime through feeding unlawful desires. As long as we build with one hand and tear down with another, America will trouble its own soul.
Pray daily for a return of common sense and spiritual understanding in rank and file citizens.
