Marriage Down; Morals Down
The fact that so many cohabitate (shack up) without benefit of marriage, that so many come into this world as illegitimate children, and that many push for same-sex unions as "marriage" bespeaks ill of our entire civilation. America is spurning what was created for our good and God's glory. And we call it "freedom."
But the Wisdom of God declares:
35 For those who find me find life
and receive favor from the LORD.
36 But those who fail to find me harm themselves;
all who hate me love death." (Proverbs 8:35-36)]
