HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH


Articles by Joel Hendon

"Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way" (Proverbs 23:19)


PROGRESS OR DECLINE?

I worry, and pray, a lot about the things that are creeping into the church, the ultra liberalism, modernism, humanism, or whatever you may want to call it.

It is like everything else, it shocks us at first, but then as we see more and more of it, we begin to become more tolerant. That won't work. God doesn't allow innovations in his church today any more than he did anytime since it's inception.

I recall some 35 to 40 years ago when television was relatively new and highly moral compared to the present day porn and filth that they show. I watched a show once of "Father Knows Best", truly a family type show. The teen age daughter had a girl friend who had decided to start living with her boy friend. The mother asked the daughter how she felt about that and the daughter replied that such an arrangement was not her own cup of tea but that , if the friend was comfortable with it, so be it.

I felt that this high moral show and the very high moral mother would certainly straighten this high moral teen-age daughter out. She didn't. I was crushed. I thought to my self, if children see this high moral show and hear acceptance of such immoral activity, what is television coming to?

Well, we all now see where it has gone. Unfortunately, I fear that we are seeing the Lord's children becoming more and more permissive. We need to pray more and talk more.
