A Sin Against The Nation

January 11, 2017 Save Article


Clearly and plainly God says in His word, “Thou shalt not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14). Adultery is a sin against one’s self. It’s a sin against one’s home. It’s a sin against one’s nation.

Edward Gibbon, who wrote The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire, said that the sin of immorality was the number one thing that brought that empire crashing down. Historians tell us adultery was the sin that also destroyed Greece, Egypt, and Babylon. I believe it may well be the sin that will destroy America.

Even now the raging waters of God’s wrath are pounding furiously against the dam of His mercy. One day that dam of mercy will give way to the waters of God’s wrath. The Bible says in Proverbs 14:34, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” The enemy of the home is also the enemy of society.
