Why is lawlessness surging in America? The blame game is being played. Guns, drugs, mental illness get the headlines but what are we really witnessing?
Here’s the cold hard truth.
A latter day sign of the return of Jesus is lawlessness. He said, “And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12
When lawlessness grows hot, love goes cold. The thermometer on our society has changed for the worse and we blame everything but the source of lies and hate.
Of course this is laughable in a post Christian world where absolute truth is offensive, the Bible is shelved and rejected by “seminary trained spiritual leaders” and their sheep.
Paul points out the source and power of lawlessness and where it finds its home. It’s in the heart of people without faith in Christ.
 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins  in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. Ephesians 2:1-3
Jesus said to the religious leaders that Satan was their father. He was a liar and murderer from the word go just like those hypocrites. (John 8:44) They are still among us.
His spirit is alive and well and working in the hearts of the religious, the irreligious and especially clergy who speak like the world and reject the word of God.
We have a serious spiritual crisis in America. Lawlessness is growing but the cure for individuals is still the same. It’s a heart issue and we need a transplant.
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. Romans 10:9-10
