No Wonder Things Were Bad
| "In those days
there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his
own eyes," (Judges 17: 6). Nobody respected right or wrong except as
they determined it. No authority ruled over them. They "did their own
thing" and lived as they pleased. They were forerunners of the modern
liberal contentions that dismiss the authority of God and say everybody
can do whatever they want.
The period of the Judges was the "dark ages: for Israel. Degenerate conduct was dominant. The nation languished in their defiance of God. There are people today who contend for the same right and show no respect for divine authority. They want their own way regardless of what it does to themselves or society.
Humanism teaches this. Liberalism practices this. Atheism grows this. Humanity suffers from this. But Christians know better and still respect God's will. On which side do you stand?
