We live in an age where anything goes;
Absolute truth is no longer in vogue;
Society’s values have hit new lows;
Relativism is the status quo.

Our country had a conservative base,
Firm foundations where God’s Law was embraced,
Sound moral codes once sat firmly in place;
In recent years, they’ve been largely replaced.

Why has this happened? Why change what worked well?
Things were going fine; the country excelled;
The change is not good; it’s easy to tell,
It’s a downward spiral; it smells of Hell!!

The truth is: - By man-made legislation
No country is a God-fearing nation:
Lawlessness is the manifestation
Of humanity’s degeneration.

God gave man truth, which Satan dared deny;
Our first parents fell for the awful lie;
The result being, that every man must die;
Cursed by sin and death, all the world’s awry.

This, the ultimate case of “truth and dare”
Was no game, brought mankind untold despair,
Which only Calvary’s cross could repair---
The Gospel Truth which His people declare.

All need His redemption, all are depraved,
To sin and death are completely enslaved;
“Perilous times will come;” don’t be amazed;
Believe the gospel of Christ, and be saved.

Very powerful poem. Most of the world don't want to hear about absolute truth anymore. To stand for absolute truth in the eyes of many is to be labled judgemental and self-righteous.

We need to walk in love and compassion, but there is a time for tough love because eternity hangs in the balance. On any battery that has a positive, there is also a negative. This is just my thoughts. God bless and thanks for sharing this...Randy Gene
