Over the years and decades, a lot has been written with regard to the "moral decay" of society in the United States, and even other countries around the world.

This question came yesterday:
I know evangelical Pat Robertson is a proponent of the legalization of marijuana and against the War on Drugs.
Does the Christians Against Prohibition Addicted to Love, support the legalization of marijuana? Remember Genesis 1:29, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” This in itself promoted marijuana.
Yes or No???
Yes, this is from Genesis.
“I [God] will bless [your wife Sarah] and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.”
Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?” And Abraham said to God, “If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!”
Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. [“Isaac” means “he laughs.”] I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.”
Then one of them said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.”
Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him. Abraham and Sarah were already very old, and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, “After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I now have this pleasure?”
Then the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”
Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.”
But he said, “Yes, you did laugh.”
Social Objection to Ending Prohibition (Actually a Religious Objection)
“[Someone] told me the Devil made marijuana. Is that true?”
Below are comparisons showing some similarities and differences between a few well known mindsets — and sorry to say, entities — which embody and act out on those mindsets.
God gave us plants to eat, herbs, and fruit trees. God saw that it was good. — Genesis 1:11-12, 29-30
Paul prophecies that in the later times some will abandon God’s love. Hypocritical liars will deceive them and forbid others from partaking in foods God created, to be enjoyed by those who know The Truth.
Everything God made is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is sanctified through God’s word and prayer.
Be a good minister and point this out to fellow believers. — 1 Timothy 4:1-6
- Read a little about the United States Constitution.
- Learn where the number 666 is written about in the Bible, in the book of Revelation.
- Read some of the symbolic meanings of the numbers 6 & 7.
- Learn how Jesus was, and is, a whole lot nicer than the beings written about in Revelation that force their wills on others.
- Finally a joke using UNIX permissions which has a convenient coincidence.
Here is some from the introduction...
The number 666 has long been considered a bad omen, a bad sign, an evil number, standing for an evil force. A number that somehow indicates evil. Many theories have been put forth as to why. I have discovered another possible explanation, or two.
Adding interest to this theory are some symbolic meanings attached to various numbers, in particular 6 and 7. The number 6 is believed to be the number of “man.” The number 7 is believed to be the number of “perfection” and “completion.”
Read Revelation chapter 13 and one thing is clear. The beast is all about forcing its will on others. Please note, this is the opposite of our savior, Jesus, Yeshua, the Christ, the Messiah, Wonderful, Counselor. He asks us nicely. He said whoever comes to him, he will not drive away. How many people did Jesus push his will on? None! How many people did Jesus kill? None! Others begged him to do things for them.
