Biblical Values

The Bible has been the standard of moral behavior for the Western world for nearly 2,000 years.  As the influence of Western nations has grown, that same standard has been picked up all over the world.  Thou shalt not steal.  Thou shalt not bear false witness.

Lying and theft are considered immoral acts.  Murder is an immoral act.  Many cultures did not recognize those acts as immoral until Christian influence was strong enough to overcome their traditions.

In my lifetime, these standards have fallen away.  People steal and others rush to their defense, claiming "fairness" or some other standard, rather than the Biblical standard.  People lie and we are told it was okay, because everyone lies, or that there is no objective truth.  People murder innocent babies in the womb, and we are told it's not murder, because it's the right of the mother to kill her children.  Our great nation needs prayer, and a return to Biblical values; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
