Mamaw Got a New Tattoo Part 2

“And be not conformed to this world…” Romans 12:2a

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” I John 2:15

“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.” II Timothy 4:2

“These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.” Titus 2:15

James Dobson has reportedly said that we have lost the culture war and our nation is “awash in evil”.

I’ll go one step further than that, the average American does not know what the word “evil” means.

The average young person today doesn’t see anything wrong with getting a tattoo.

The average young person today doesn’t see anything wrong with being “gay”.

The average young person today doesn’t see anything wrong with shacking up.

The average young person today doesn’t see anything wrong being dishonest or crooked in their business dealings.

As a matter of fact from what I have seen and heard, the average young person today does not see anything wrong with anything. They have been brainwashed by the public school system, the universities and the television.

…And the older people aren’t much better.

Author Karl Priest has noted in his book, Protester Voices–The 1974 Textbook Tea Partythe “Textbook war” was the first shot fired in the culture war. Many of those protesters are grandparents and great grandparents now. Many of those who pulled their children out of public schools and protested because of the rotten content in the textbooks are guilty of listening, reading and watching much worse every day.

The problem is not a political one…it is a spiritual one.

The problem is not congress… it is our churches.

The problem is not our politicians…it is our preachers.

Dr R.L. Hymers points out in his book, Today’s Apostasy; “…many preachers in our day have become “boneless wonders”, too cowardly to preach against sin, too spineless to insist on conversion, too blind to see that the enemy is Satan.” I believe he is exactly right. {I believe Dr. Hymers would also point out that a majority of Americans have made some type of decision or commitment to Jesus Christ.}

Or as Dr Martin Lloyd Jones said, “Present-day preaching does not save men. Present-day preaching does not even annoy men…”

One reason Mamaw has got a new tattoo and Papaw is shacking up is because preachers are afraid of preaching against sin.

Please understand that right is right and wrong is wrong even if I or my own children go into grievous sin.

God hasn’t changed His mind about sin. The wages of sin is still eternal death. {Romans 6:23}

The Bible is true.

Hell is real.

Heaven is real.

Jesus came into this world to save His people from their sins.

  1. Brother Shawn, I commend you on these two articles. Very interesting and up front. Keep up the good work Charles

  2. Henry L. Thaxton says:

    Several years ago in a meeting of Christian School Pastors and Principals in Dallas Texas, Dr. John R. Rice took the pulpit to preach to us. The first thing he said to us was, “You look like a bunch of sissies”. I looked around and included myself as I agreed he was so right. Most were well groomed, with hair in place and appeared to be well fed. They and I winced at the truth of Dr. Rice’s statement. Time has proven that the wimps have reproduced. “Having done all to stand, stand therefor”. THANK YOU Henry L. Thaxton, Charleston, WV
