Today we still hold the notion that there is something called immorality, but that is changing. Very soon we will enter a philosophical mindset where nothing is immoral. Today, it is immoral to call an action or behavior ‘immoral.’ One day, morality won’t be a consideration.

For a background, the commandment “Thou shalt not commit adultery,” was not defended in our recent history nor its transgression censured, and as a result we have a host of other sexual behaviors which are no longer considered immoral. Of course these were spelled out in places where hundreds of God’s laws were cited, including things like homosexuality, bestiality and incest. But the point is, these are not considered primary indispensable commandments.

Once we eased up on the adultery command, it only followed that other sexual behaviors would follow. Now we are getting soft on something called ‘transexualism.’ We are going this route because we ourselves have lost our moral compass, so true north – so to speak- keeps shifting and will soon disappear. Then the new normal will be no norms at all.

We are of course still holding on to old relics of morality, like ‘gay or straight,’ but that won’t last long. Why? Because ‘straight’ implies ‘correct,’ so ‘gay’ must mean something that is not correct. Even ‘transgender’ implies a departure from plain ordinary ‘gender,’ so that is a variant that must be discarded too.

What we will be left with is a society where there are no sexual restrictions – imposed and antiquated moral standards, and where there will not be gender – just individuals, and in reality, not even humans – just living things. Anyone can have zero, one, or any number of partners, either temporarily or permanently. And, everyone and everything will have equal rights, even animals. I am not even going there. But, society will – a society where self is the smaller but greater god. The word ‘blush’ will be lost to philological history.

Thus, an amoral society will be worse than an immoral one.

If every drop of water from every sea

were changed into a writer’s ink,

and every blade of grass were a pen

If the sky above were an empty page

and every person from every age a scribe,

they could not begin to convey

 

How deep and how wide, how long and how high

is your love – the love you gave us

How rich and how pure, how strong and secure

your covenant, and the blood that saved us

The wisest man could not explain

The universe cannot contain your wonders

 

If each grain of sand on every beach

stood for one promise you are faithful to keep,

and every star an act of your grace

And if every schoolchild stood up to count

for a thousand years, the final amount,

though it fill the vastness of space would fail to say

 

How deep and how wide, how long and how high

is your love, the love you gave us

How rich and how pure, how strong and secure

your covenant, and the blood that saved us

The wisest man could not explain

The universe cannot contain your wonders, Lord!
