The Sins of the Flesh are probably one of mankind’s worst flaws next to hedonism, vanity and arrogance. Unfortunately, due to the continuous development of technology, the attainability of sexual overtness is at an all-time high.
In the 1950s, Americans were living in this protected Christian-predominant and conservative society in which everyone followed in the accordance of God. There may have been some individuals who deviated from the righteous path, but most people remained obedient and decent.
Let us take a brief gander at the immediate future of the ideal family from the 1950s and jump into the 1980s. This was the time when the happy households began to take a turn for the worst. Married couples began divorcing at such elevated rates, making this decade notorious for the onset of marital annulments.
The couple decades that followed, leading to the present-day, showed the divorce rates decreasing steadily until remaining at a constant yet almost nonexistent rate. Why are the divorce rates at an all-time low currently? It would help if more couples were actually marrying. Instead, people are out being promiscuous, with multiple partners within a short period of time, with no plans of marriage at all.
With the dissipation of the morals, values and decency of the American people, much has changed since the early-to-mid 1900s. Sadly enough, the generations to come will only worsen. Today, there is no need for marriage, and in fact the sanctity that once surrounded this act of love, has been tarnished from the lack of God in our everyday lives.
“Why get married? What point is there to marry when we can live together?” These words are uttered too much by these newer generations of young people. Actually, the concept of marriage is to a point, completely absent from the minds of young Americans.
Even cohabitation for young, unwed couples is looked downed upon as a waste of time. Males today not only get free milk from any cow they choose to farm, but it does not even take much effort to obtain this milk anymore. Women give up themselves too quickly to the opposite sex, that there is no need for even a courtship or formal union between two people.
This obsession with sexual promiscuity has become an incessant issue in this current epoch. And for those who cannot find a female willingly, he can just go home and watch something off the Web to better please himself to his liking.
‘Sexual immorality’, as the Bible refers to, is not strong enough to describe this generation’s way of being in the present-day society. In fact, being sinful does not quite do it either. There are no words in the English language, strong enough, to accurately depict this generation of wolves and lions.
The only words that can conclude this diminutive exclamation is: May God have mercy on mankind. Amen.
