Hollywood actor, Robert De Niro, had the audacity to curse our president on stage, on air, at the 72nd annual Tony Awards. Those in the audience should have walked out on such a vulgar and blatant display of disrespect. The unbridled hate that so many in Holly wood have toward this president is a sign of the great moral divide in America. Truly, a battle is being waged for the direction and future of our nation. Truly, there is a battle between the good (Christianity) and evil (globalists).
We are rapidly reaching a tipping point in the USA with irreparable schism between the left and right over the great moral divide. Those on the right in policy circles didn’t like as the left redefined marriage and then human sexuality. They bitterly went along with this charade of calling a man a woman. Such moral and intellectual bankruptcy is reflective of enveloping half of our country.
This great moral divide reached a fever pitch a few weeks ago over the most basic principles of right and wrong with Hamas vs Jews in Israel. This great moral divide is seen by the left trying to keep our borders open so that criminal aliens like MS-13 and drug cartels can come in. The MS-13 violent street gang’s motto is kill, steal, rape and control; and radicals on the left say, “We stand with you.”
A similar great moral divide gripped the country in the lead-up to the Civil War. Those on the left felt the political and economic benefits of slavery were so valuable that the institution and all of its evils had to be defended at all cost. Those on the right, including President Lincoln, saw very clearly a divide that could not be sustained.
Our country cannot continue like this with one side shedding crocodile tears over waterboarding but unflinchingly champions the practice of dismembering babies limb from limb while their hearts are still beating! We cannot continue to have one side (left) that violently opposes capital punishment for murderers but embraces murder for babies. We cannot continue to have one side supporting illegal immigration to support their voter registration program. We cannot continue to have one side coddling criminals while ignoring law-abiding citizens. There is an irreconcilable difference in our country when one side is insistently merciful to those who are cruel (Muslims) and cruel to those deserving mercy (Christians.)
Our country is divided on social issues and the role of government in our lives. The bottom line is we have reached the tipping point. As long as one side believes that a man is a woman, right is wrong, a border is a doorway, criminals are civil rights groups, abortion is sacred while interrogating terrorists is evil. The animosity between the other side gets worse with this great moral divide. We are living in a time when people are saying that there is no universal right and wrong, but that it varies with the circumstances.
We are living in a time when people seem to be pleasure-mad, constantly seeking some form of entertainment rather than some worthwhile work. We are living in a time when drunkenness and excess are called gracious living, while cheating, deception and lying have come to be regarded as smart maneuvering.
We are living in a time when moral and ethical values are blurred and confused. We are living in a time when the words of the Old Testament prophet Isaiah are especially appropriate concerning the great moral divide in our nation: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).
Some people in our topsy-turvy society cannot tell right from wrong. It reminds me of what takes place when the head of a chicken is cut off. Its body is in a state of complete confusion. It does not know what it is doing or where it is going. The world today is full of wicked people, like that chicken with its head off, who are in rebellion against God, who think that drunkenness and illicit sex are a mark of freedom. Their spiritual chaos is unimaginable.
The answer to what is right or wrong and the solution to the great moral divide lies in the word of God -- the Bible (Psalm 119).
