WORLD CRISIS FORETOLD –CIVIL AND DIVINE LAWS ENDANGERED-part 14-

TO UNDERSTAND WHERE THE PAPACY IS LEADING, LOOK AT HER PAST HISTORY-part 8

LAW AND ORDER THE REAL ISSUE-part 2-

SIN NO LONGER SINFUL

WHEREVER the divine precepts are rejected, sin ceases to appear sinful or righteousness desirable. Those who refuse to submit to the government of God are wholly unfitted to govern themselves.  Through their pernicious teachings the spirit of insubordination is implanted in the hearts of children and youth, who are naturally impatient of control; and a lawless, licentious state of society results. While scoffing at the credulity of those who obey the requirements of God, the multitudes eagerly accept the delusions of Satan.  They give the rein to lust and practice the sins which have called down judgments upon the heathen.

SOCIETY IN DISARRAY

ALREADY the doctrine that men are released from obedience to God’s requirements has weakened the force of moral obligation and opened the floodgates of iniquity upon the world. Lawlessness, dissipation, and corruption are sweeping in upon us like an overwhelming tide.  In the family, Satan is at work.  His banner waves, even in professedly Christian households.  There is envy, evil surmising, hypocrisy, estrangement, emulation, strife, betrayal of sacred trusts, and indulgence of lust.  The whole system of religious principles and doctrines, which should form the foundation and framework of social life, seems to be a tottering mass, ready to fall to ruin.

The vilest of criminals, when thrown into prison for their offenses, are often made the recipients of gifts and attentions as if they had attained an enviable distinction. Great publicity is given to their character and crimes. The press publishes the revolting details of vice, thus initiating others into the practice of fraud, robbery, and murder; and Satan exults in the success of his hellish schemes.  The infatuation of vice, the wanton taking of life, the terrible increase of intemperance and iniquity of every order and degree, should arouse all who fear God, to inquire what can be done to stay the tide of evil.

SCRIPTURES NOW REJECTED

THE iniquity and spiritual darkness that prevailed under the supremacy of Rome were the inevitable result of her suppression of the Scriptures; but where is to be found the cause of the widespread infidelity, the rejection of the Law of God, and the consequent corruption, under the full blaze of gospel light in an age of religious freedom? Now that Satan can no longer keep the world under his control by withholding the Scriptures, he resorts to other means to accomplish the same object.  To destroy faith in the Bible serves his purpose as well as to destroy the Bible itself.  By introducing the belief that God’s law is not binding, he as effectually leads men to transgress as if they were wholly ignorant of its precepts.  And now- as if former ages, he has worked through the church to further his designs.  The religious organizations of the day have refused to listen to unpopular truths plainly brought to view in the Scriptures, and in combating them they have adopted interpretations and taken positions which have sown broadcast the seeds of skepticism.

Clinging to the papal error of natural immortality and man’s consciousness in death, they have rejected the only defense against the delusions of Spiritualism.  The doctrine of eternal torment has led many to disbelieve the Bible.  And as the claims of the fourth commandment are urged upon the people, it is found that the observance of the seventh-day Sabbath s enjoined; and as the only way to free themselves from a duty which they are unwilling to perform, many popular teachers declare that the Law of God is no longer binding.  Thus they cast away the law and the Sabbath together.  As the work of Sabbath reform extends, this rejection of the Divine Law to avoid the claims of the fourth commandment will become well-nigh universal.
