Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and host of the 𝘉𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘔𝘢𝘯 broadcast, is reminded of how Western governments, mandated by God to ennoble life, promote justice, and restrain sin, are instead leading a charge toward social chaos. This denigration of civilization is evidenced in the crushing of the foundation and quintessential building blocks of civil society: marriage, government, and church, all of which rest atop the foundation of human life. Consider marriage, once believed to be “the unique, permanent, and comprehensive union of body, mind, emotion, and soul, the proper end of which is the bearing and rearing of children.” But not only has the United States Supreme Court redefined marriage, it has opened Pandora’s grizzly box. How? If there is no special virtue in gender differentiated parenting, is there any magic in the number 2? And why arbitrarily assign 18 as the magical age of consent? Once Western civilization abandons the biblical definition of marriage, there is virtually no limit on where our unsanctified passions will inevitably lead—even to the eradication of gender distinctions ordained by God from the beginning. And today, the lives of children have become expendable. Moreover, the Church has become a microcosm of the culture rather than being a change agent in the culture—the Church has largely succumbed to the onslaught of illiberal liberalism. The Church must once again take the task of Christian education seriously.
