The developing scandal that began in Hollywood with Harvey Weinstein and is now rippling through the institutions of the Left, provides a vivid reminder of what happens when a society abandons Biblical standards of righteousness and goes its own way. It does not end well.
Recently I saw a post on social media in which the writer opined that he did not see that the self-evident truths of the Declaration of Independence were in fact self-evident. While the truth that God has endowed men and women with unalienable rights is self-evident to those of us with a Biblical Worldview, as it was to the Founders, it is not self-evident to those that are influenced by the secular, or any other, worldview.
Taking a knee would be a good thing, if people were bowing humbly before a holy God and acknowledging that He alone is sovereign. This is not what the protests in the NFL are about. They are about pride, selfishness, attention-getting, and political agendas. There is nothing in this that demonstrates civic virtue.
