I have watched thousands of movies over my many years on earth. Depending upon your personality, people tend to create lists like classics, favorites or worst ever. While I have seen some pathetic films, none were more disturbing than The Last House on the Left. This 1972 horror flick was an obvious sign of a changing world, but I missed it. I couldn’t convince myself that this was the direction and path America was on, yet I shouldn’t be surprised.
Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law, Proverbs 29:18.
Compromise is a painful reality that people usually don’t grasp until it’s too late. No society is immune to the pitfalls of history. Like a vicious cycle, civilizations tend to reject morality over a period of time. In it’s place, evil, lust and violence is embraced. No matter how noble one’s beginning, there will always be a fall from grace that shouldn’t be a surprise.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, Hosea 4:6.
Past winners of the lottery wake up millionaires over night. Unfortunately, many of these individuals end up far worse than living a normal life. I recently read a case study of former winners. Many follow the path of the prodigal son, blowing their pay out quickly with lavish gifts and wild spending sprees. The Bible warns souls of this possibility, but greed has a way of blinding individuals from the truth. Subsequently, those who attempt to live life without vision will soon perish. Take heed so you won’t be surprised.
