Would you want God to be sick or you or of your culture or of your country? That’s what happened in the days of Noah and that same corrupting process can happen again. How? Today’s devotional will explain. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Genesis 6:1-7 (ESV)
1 When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.
5 The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the Lord regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
“What was once unimaginable becomes thinkable and then fashionable. What used to be abnormal is now normal. Where we were once shocked, we are now indifferent. What started as soft-core ends as hard-core. Where before the definition of deviancy slowly became more limited, now, in the mad scramble for ratings and market share, there is an all-out race for the bottom in the name of the ‘daring’ and the ‘edgy’ ― which always turns out to be the violent, the vulgar, the explicit, and the tasteless. Each transgression builds on the last one and binds us to the next one.” [Os Guinness, Unspeakable: Facing Up to Evil in an Age of Genocide and Terror, (San Francisco: HarperSanFrancisco, 2005), p. 104]
