There is something dark that lies within. So subtle, so reclusive, and so deceitful many never fully acknowledge its existence, nor the power it wields over their lives. It feeds thoughts to the mind, and when credence is given to those thoughts it then drives actions. You’ve seen its working in your own family, our nation, and the world. You’ve seen the wake of its destructive path both recently and throughout history. You’ve seen it spare no mercy on those it takes prey, whether young or old. It never tires of tempting mankind with its lures of pleasure and power because its sole desire is to destroy, conquer, and rule. It is evil that lies within each of us.
Bristol Palin, along with her boyfriend, feel prey to its influence, but they are only one couple among thousands in our nation. Teenage pregnancy, along with many of the social ills of our day, is only the outward manifestation of that which works within. May our nation take heed to this reality, and reject the sensual culture that we have become so intoxicated with and have on constant display before our children everyday!
Gal 6:1 Brethren, if any man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
