As wickedness increases, love decreases

cold heart We are warned. As sin goes exponential in the end times, it will wear away on the once-sincere love of many believers. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold — Matt. 24:12 NIV.

It would difficult to argue against the explosion of sin we have seen since the 1960s: drugs, free sex, redefining sin, massacres, crime waves in Latin America, terrorists worldwide. Standards are continually becoming looser. What was once the vilest subgenre (snuff movies) is now standard fare on cable TV (True Blood). What’s most disturbing is that nothing is disturbing any longer.

And Christian standards have slid. The line between acceptable and unacceptable behavior has been pushed back. I’m not point fingers though. I myself am susceptible. If anything, I am warning myself (and others) about the dangers of living in Sodom. Let’s not let our heart grow cold.

  1. As Peter said, judgment begins in the house of God. We need to allow the Holy Spirit to shine His light into every corner of our lives and hearts.

    I couldn’t agree more. And raising children to be wholesome in this unwholesome generation is certainly a battle, I can tell you.

  3. That is why as we live in this world we need to keep our focus on our Holy GOD.

  4. God is love. Love cannot decrease. But I understand what you are trying to communicate.

  5. We must live our life as if a person never reads a Bible but looks to us as we live and Love our God and Thank him for all the blessings we have received. I might be the only Bible that a person might ever read. Always Always do what is right and don’t be afraid to show how we feel. The world has too many choices and they are not choosing the right one. Pray for a turn around.
