Has It Always Been This Bad?

Rebecca Droeger

Every day, no matter where you get your news, it seems like humanity is growing more and more perverse.  You can’t even watch the evening news without hearing about rape, child molestation, murders, theft and violent “protests.”

Lately, I have to watch the news without my daughter in the room.  A 9-year old shouldn’t have to hear of the utter depravity taking over man-kind.

Yesterday, Nicole happened to come into the room right as the newscaster was interviewing a victim of her own father raping her and making pornographic videos of her.  The victim stated that at one time, her father impregnated her and she had to have an abortion.

Nicole asked me what an abortion was, so when I explained to her, she was incredulous.  “Someone actually kills a baby while it’s in their tummy?”  How do you comfort a child who just learns how sick and twisted our World is?

Then you have to wonder, “has the World always been this bad?  It seems to get worse all of the time.”

It’s not that these heinous deeds are anything new.  The Roman empire of the early Christian world was replete with atrocities.

Christians even partook in some of the debauchery.  Paul referenced the struggles of the early Church in his letters.

So, mankind has always experienced wickedness.  The difference nowadays is it seems to be increasing with quantity and intensity.  Or, so it would appear.

Now that information is available instantaneously, we are able to witness news as it happens.  Whether it’s news print, TV, internet, talk radio, we are bombarded by information.

Since there is such a wide selection of where you can receive your news, they all have to compete for your attention.  So, the more outrageous, filthy and scandalous the story; the better chance it will have of capturing the public’s interest.

What is really disturbing is some of these horrific behaviors are now tolerated or celebrated.

Things like sex-scandal videos seem to launch otherwise obscure celebrities into stardom.  HBO programs like True Blood show often violent and explicit fantasy; Game of Thrones attempts to shock its viewers with incest; while Boardwalk Empire delves into the creation of gangsters in the Prohibition era with a combination of all of the above.

While these shows are meant for entertainment and shock value, it also desensitizes the public into accepting the behaviors as a new normal.

All of these things wear our society down.  While it’s disconcerting to watch it all unfold this side of the Rapture, we can take comfort in knowing that our Lord predicted it all in His Holy Word.

Jesus warned us perilous times would come just before the return of His Church (2 Timothy  3:1).  Take heart, for it is near, even at the doors.  He reminds us to:

“…when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke  21:28
