Progression of Sin’s Acceptance

That which was
illegal because of its immoral nature
becomes something which is legal but morally condemned.

That which was
morally condemned
becomes something which is acceptable, albeit less than ideal.

That which was
less than ideal
becomes something which is equal in value, if still a little morally questionable.

That which was
questionable morally
becomes something which is accepted as morally good.

That which was accepted as
morally good
becomes something which it is immoral to oppose.

That which was
immoral to oppose
becomes something which it is immoral to fail to endorse.

That which was
immoral to fail to endorse
becomes something government must endorse.

That which was
what government must endorse
becomes something which the state church will be compelled to endorse.

That which was
what the state church much endorse
becomes something which all must endorse.

That which was
what all must endorse
becomes something which it is illegal to fail to endorse.

And so that which was illegal, because of its immoral nature,
has become something which it is illegal to fail to endorse.

Tyranny.

For evil will eventually be unsatisfied to merely coexist with good.

What is true of a society is true in the human heart.
If we let evil become acceptable to us,
it will want to rule us.
Evil accepts coexistence with good only for as long as it takes it to gain dominion.

    Succinct!……and sadly so true! Very well said!

  2. And when any society legally requires the endorsement of that which is immoral by nature, it will experience the fierce judgment of our Lord God’s fiery wrath against it.

    Isaiah 5:18 — “Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope!”

    Isaiah 5:20 — “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

    • Jon Gleason says:

      Amen. The fearful thing — those verses don’t describe the end of the progression. By the time a society reaches about the middle point of the progression, those verses tell us it is under judgment.

      And our societies are rushing past the middle point of the progression….
