Nature abhors a vacuum, and when people have no strong religious beliefs and standards, when their values are, at best, flexible and relativistic, and “anything goes” when it comes to morals, two things will happen.
First, as people seek to fill the void which only God can fill, they flock to the dangerous cults. Think Jonestown. Second and even more scary, this vacuum of decency and goodness opens the door to allow radical Islam to flood in. After all, aren’t we all the same? Don’t all religions point to one God? Isn’t “multiculturalism” the answer? Aren’t we all “politically correct”? How dare we criticize Sharia Law? And, seeing that we are so weakened, that men have become so androgynous, metrosexual and fearful, why shan’t we rather sign up and become Muslim than risk their violent displeasure?
In this article from The Telegraph of April 16, 2016:
“The Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, claimed the “social and sexual” revolution of the 1960s had led to a steep decline in the influence of Christianity over society which church leaders had failed to resist.
He said that in its place, Britain had become gripped by the doctrine of “endless self-indulgence” which had led to the destruction of family life, rising levels of drug abuse and drunkenness and mindless violence on the streets.
The bishop warns that the modern politicians’ catchphrases of respect and tolerance will not be strong enough to prevent this collapse of traditional virtues, and said radical Islam is now moving in to fill the void created by the decline of Christianity.”
This isn’t going to happen sometime in the far off, hazy future, either; it’s happening in Europe already and Justin Trudeau, posing as the Prime Minster of Canada, is doing his very best to follow their lead, eagerly laying financial rose petals at the feet of the Trojan Horses of “refugees” in the vague hope of buying votes for future elections while pleasing and pacifying his socialist, pot smoking electorate.
It is more urgent than ever that Christian churches stand together, regroup, link arms, and stop watering down the Gospel and lowering our standards to accommodate the world. People are not impressed with the almost, the not quite, the “kinda,” and weakness. Situational ethics and elastic values only attract those who seek a cheap, sleazy social club that will overlook and allow their wanton behaviour, perversion, and lack of decency.
