Finally Friday!

2 Timothy 4:1-5
1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at[a] His appearing and His kingdom: 2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

I watched Niteline last night. They are doing a series on the ten commandments. Last nights show was about Adultery. The question- Are we born to cheat?
They had Pastor Ed Young of the Fellowship Church in Dallas, a recovering sex addict, Ashley founder and CEO Noel Biderman, and author Jenny Block. Don't know what Ashley Its a dating website of sorts, like E Harmony, but serves those who are searching exclusively to cheat on there spouse. Openly on the website, perhaps not so openly in their marriages though. And Jenny Block is an advocate for open marriages. She herself has been married for 13 years I believe she said and now has a ten year old daughter and a girlfriend on the side, that her husband knows about. She not only has a lover on the side but is also engaging in a same sex relationship.
Obviously the Pastor had the proper view on these things and defended the sanctity of Marriage, the biblical definition of Marriage, another words God's definition.
The two panelists that were defending redefining marriage just made me so frustrated. Some of the things they said, were so, offensive to everything that God has created for us. The Author, Jenny Block was so blasphemous it was almost laughable. She said she had a wonderful relationship with God, yet rebuked anything in the Bible that didn't agree with her own selfish wants as not really being the word of God. Both the "pro Adultery" panelists repeatedly showed their ignorance of what the bible says. But really these two are just a couple of the examples of the moral decline in America. There is no two ways about it. Marriage was created by God. Therefor Marriage is defined by God. God also made grass green, we can't just (because we want) redefine grass and say its purple when its really green no matter what we say it is. I suppose science could some how produce a seed that made a purple grass but...oh just never mind. My point is that the Word of God says that marriage is a covenant between one man and one woman and that adultery is wrong. Period.
People have got to start living a better life, leading a better life. Americans are rejecting Christianity, and even those who still practice Christianity don't even understand the basics of the Christian faith anymore. As the above examples so clearly show. These people really believe they are Christians, yet they say adultery is okay, what?! Am I the only one who sees the disconnect there?
