Satan Sowing Seeds

While looking around for new material to blog about, this jumped out at me. If it had been a snake, it would have bitten me. I couldn’t believe my eyes and just stared at it for a few seconds before determining that this would be a worthy topic to ruminate upon. 

I’m often surprised by the things that are occurring in our world. Some will say that things have always been this way; it’s just that these scandalous tidbits were whispered about and kept from the public eye, or that the internet has brought them out into the light and we’re discussing them more openly. Perhaps this is true, or perhaps not. 

It seems as if something is different these days, compared to how things used to be. It’s almost as if we’ve returned to the mentality of the 70’s and the “if it feels good, do it” of the laid-back hippies of those times. This was hedonism at its finest, without fear of the consequences. The boomers learned the tough truths of what can happen due to this kind of immorality, though, and some of us paid for our hedonistic pursuits the hard way. 

We’re on a strangely different path now, in my opinion. There is something more sinister about traveling down this road. Never before has anything been so “flagrant,” is what I would call this difference. At least in the 70’s, we were aware we were breaking taboos, but we were rebellious and doing it for a good cause. The mood and feeling of today is more of a “just don’t care anymore,” “nothing is sacred,” and reminds me of the attempt to see how low we can go as a society before someone screams “stop!” It’s infected everything around us, which is something else that is strange.  

At any rate, let’s have a look at the ad: 

“Life is short…Have an affair. (shhhh).”  

This tells us to taste the forbidden, to dare to deceive our spouse, or partner. Just lie, keep quiet, hide what you’re doing through deceiving your significant other — no one will know, no one gets hurt, and there’s no morality standing in your way to even wince about, much less engage in guilt over. It tells us not to worry about the future because life is short; this is all there is. Don’t worry about your eternal soul. There will be no “Judgment Day.” God isn’t there and watching. Live for the now! Who cares who gets hurt? We’ll even help you and make money off your effort! Join us. We’ll help you cheat!

When have we ever seen something so “in our faces” in all its glorified, sexualized encouragement to do wrong?

Is God behind this?

"Satan Sowing Seeds" by Felicien Rop...

Satan sowing seeds

I think we know inwardly that He is not, and that only leaves the other guy. What does he have to gain by encouraging these kinds of immoral, thoughtless, reckless actions?  

Well, the American family continues to dwindle. Legal marriage sustains yet another blow to its validity, as does the meaning of the vows we take with one another when we marry. God’s preferred way of having a relationship is mocked and demeaned, and our society’s most respected method of commitment loses more and more respect and legitimacy.

The casual is encouraged and all moral structure is toppled and broken down. There is no more real security for our children within these unions because couples bound are tied by flimsy bonds of nothingness that can be broken frivolously without even a backward glance or thought.

If you cannot see the workings of Satan behind what’s occurring all around us within our beautiful country, perhaps it’s time for a corrective check up in perception. The changes are right in front of our eyes. Some of us see them and are very concerned, and others of us shrug these off nonchalantly, accepting the downward spiral as part of the change and growth of society moving into the future.

Well, allow me to say that we are moving in the wrong direction. 

I think this advertisement above makes this more than clear.

  1. Awesome, totally agree. The moral values is more and more on the decline. Unfortunately, I believe it will get worse. Just as the Bible tells us, evilness will increase. Great post, thank you. Blessings, Freddy.

  2. That is horrible. Sadly, I’m not shocked. It seems that the level of sexual immorality continues to grow and, as you said, the acceptance of it.

    Lord, have mercy! Come, Lord Jesus, and shine your light on the darkness. Show it for what it really is: corruption, slavery and death. We need you, Lord! Rescue all those trapped in sin! Use us for your purpose. In your mighty name – Amen.

  3. It really is getting worse, Freddy. I’m just wondering how much worse it can get. We already have the polygamous attempting to marry and demand their civil rights with the help of gays’ who are assisting them legally, and now those who are into a host of other perversions are beginning to crawl out under the rocks and demand their civil rights.

    We have bloodlust galore all over the internet and spewing forth from the television, aimed at our children. We’ve got a secularist public school and university situation that pushes antitheism on our children legally. We’ve got countless sites that openly encourage adultery, pornography, and countless perversities.

    We’ve got child molestation in the classrooms, in our sports arenas, and I could go on and on. How can things really get much worse, I wonder?

    God bless you for your comment and interest here, Freddy.

  4. Beautiful prayer, WP…..

    I must tell you, I’m no longer able to believe what is happening to our country and our world, nor can I conceive of the blindness of many of the populace who just take it all in stride and don’t even question it.

    Satan is diligently at work on Planet Earth, WP. And yes, all we can do is try to wake people up and shine the light of Jesus Christ upon the darkness.

  5. Great post! It may be true that adultery has always been around (or at least for a very long time), but I believe you are correct that it is much worse now. And what makes it worse is that for many people it is no longer taboo, it’s just the way things are. I am thankful, though, that even though Satan appears to be winning on this front, and he will appear to win on my more before Christ’s return, ultimately the victory belongs to Jesus! Peace, Linda

  6. John 3:19 And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.

    Jesus said, “people loved the darkness” and their actions, “were evil”.

  7. John 8:12 Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”

    Jesus said if we follow Him, we won’t have to walk in darkness.

  8. John 12:46 I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark.

    Jesus said this is a dark world. You put your trust in Him and you no longer remain in the dark my sister.
