A Long Time Ago In This Increasingly Decadent World

SEE HERE In a decadent world, growing more decadent each day, many years ago now, my sister through her heroic action saved a child's life. We are still in the grip of Satan as our citizens are propagandized that somehow a little person is of less worth before they are born and can be summarily executed. The sickness of promiscuity and the lack of virtue is sickening in our world today. But there are still those who will stand up for the unborn, for the weak, for the old, for those who the modern world deems less valuable. What makes a person valuable? It isn't the Nobel Prize or a great job or a political position. What makes a person valuable is the image of God stamped on their souls. What makes them saints is obedience to God. We live in a society that is a wreck because it serves only Satan.

I always liked Mark Twain's defense of Satan though.  He said,"We may not pay him reverance, for that would be indiscreet, but we can at least respect his talents. A person who has for untold centuries maintained the imposing position of spiritual head of four-fifths of the human race, and political head of the whole of it, must be granted the possession of executive abilites of the loftiest order."  As more and more of our fellow citizens serve that dark spirit that C.S. Lewis styled the "bent Oyarsa" we see our society sinking into a quadmire of degradation.  

It is important to be mindful of heroism and to try with all our might to motivate it in ourselves and others.  Satan was a murderer from the beginning. Shun evil and strive always to do good.
