“With the Lord’s authority I say this: Live no longer as the Gentiles do, for they are hopelessly confused. Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him. They have no sense of shame. They live for lustful pleasure and eagerly practice every kind of impurity.”
Ephesians 4:17-19 NLT
"The Gentiles" were the heathens and pagans of the time. They were either godless or worshipped false gods. Their lifestyle was wicked, immoral, and completely without conscience. There was no respect for life or sexuality. "Anything goes" was their way of life. Sounds like our society today doesn't it?
Where there is no fear of the One true God, there is every evil known to man. When this mindset infiltrates the family, churches, government, and schools we see complete disrespect for human life, confused sexual passions, disrespect for authority, and much more. Isn't this where we are today?
Something to think about.
