In an age where we try to push the envelope too far one might ask, “Where are the brakes”?
In a day when once you get to the top you can’t stay there unless you keep on pushing… until you have gone too far.
You might say in what area is this happening and the answer is everywhere and in everything.
The present day activities of politics are an area where we find that lying is just the way business is done. It starts at the bottom and has been perfected at the top.
Accepting responsibility is the “In Thing” for it comes without accountability. They are accountable to no one due to the fact they know where all the bodies are buried and those who should regulate wrong behavior walk in fear of being exposed themselves.
An area where we have gone tooooo far is substituting the righteousness man for the righteousness GOD.
With GOD that which is right is clearly stated and understood but the righteousness of man rides the wave of popularity as demonstrated by the old traditional conventions being dissed upon in favor ideas put forward by unseemly attitudes.
Psalm 2:1 puts forward a question; “Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing”?
The answer is because they have thrown all restraints and consider it to be a desirable thing.
As always, eating forbidden fruit produces a degree of death.
