When the commandments of God are no longer taken seriously– Honor your father and your mother; you shall not murder; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not give false testimony—moral chaos will erupt. With shows depicting children ridiculing parents, movies and music presenting casual sex, entertainment thriving on murder and violence, should we be surprised that news stories abound with sexual violence, bullying in our schools, organizations crying when the government ceases funding abortions, or even mass killings abroad and some here at home. When people “do that which is right in their own eyes” (Judges 21:25), instead of learning and taking seriously God’s commandments, this or any nation will become a fearful place to live. Furthermore, there will be no repentance.
Only those who know God’s commandments, take them seriously, and repent when they break them, will be able to hear that “God will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:7). Come to Peace Lutheran Church for this good news. Sunday service time is 9:00 a.m.
