“Believe it or not, the breakdown of character in our society has actually caused us to be more legalistic.

The decline of character is being compensated for with more laws. So now you can’t say something is wrong anymore if it’s legal, no matter how morally wrong it may be.

The focus then has shifted to making better laws, because as a society, we’re losing the ability to make better people.

That’s what society used to look to the church for.”

  1. That will preach because it’s so true. As a Church, we must never lose our ability to be the light of the world or its moral compass.
