Weakening Moral Values
The weakening of moral values signals society’s compulsory return to the basic Orthodox Christian teachings or there could be no “healing of our land.” President Donald Trump viewed the problems of the Americans as solvable only through draining the swamp (as Social Media describe it) that was reasonably devised by the Liberals and the open border politicians. Trump, whose parents were Presbyterians, talked a lot about his concern for the Jewish people and one reason could perhaps be traced by his “Jewish grasp” (Bible knowledge aside) since Ivanka, his daughter, was married to a Jew (real estate developer Jared Kushner). Anyhow, Trump is a more Bible-quoting president than Obama who was one compelling leader of the Americans’ weakening moral values.

The Weakening Moral Values Vis-à-vis the Heavy Dose of Christian Morality
“Draining the swamp” is equivalent to giving the Liberals a heavy dose of Christian moral values and other teachings like the truth that God “…determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.” (cf. Acts 17:26) “Build the wall, Trump,” is the familiar rallying cry of the Trump’s supporters on Social Media.
The Liberals, on the other hand, are relentless on their campaigns and advocacies for gay marriage, abortion, divorce, open border policies, political correctness, twisted human rights concepts, including all those new normals such as gender reassignment (that most conservatives aptly describe as gender insanity), the crushing-men-to-raise-women-up feminist movement, the pro-terrorism-in-the-name-of-human-rights conviction, the free health care and other benefits to the illegals, etc.
The Weakening Moral Values vs. the Sword of the Radical Allah
The so-called highly civilized societies of Australia, Europe, and the United States are now facing the challenge of chronic Jihadism and Muslim “invasion” through immigration and the open border policies of the United Nations, the European Union, Barack Obama, Chancellor Merkel of Germany, and other liberal global leaders. The weakening moral values, liberalism, and gender perversion should be the primary causes of the possible collapse of the Christian nations (in the coming years) and the global takeover of Islam. European history is one proof that the real Christianization (through Calvin, Luther, Edwards, Wesley, et al.) of the people is the only sure antidote to the fast-speed advances of superstition, fanaticism, including the notorious Jihadism. Brigitte Gabriel said that the advances of Islam (“first gained a foothold in continental Europe in 711 AD.” 1) in Europe were finally halted, and the Muslims pushed to the Middle East because of Europe’s Industrial Revolution that allowed the Europeans to build a much stronger military force. [Link: Brigitte Gabriel: Must Watch: 1400 yrs of Islamic History in a few minutes … Video] True Christianity, however, built Europe and not just the advent of the Industrial Revolution. (Islam could never build any type of “European Civilization” even up to the present times given the Muslims’ rich oil fields. Christianity built Yale (Harvard in the U.S.)—Islam’s backward civilization, a brutal theocracy, and fanaticism could not establish such great institutions of learning!) All Christians, therefore, must repent and return to Christ, our Lord; must unite and pray with importunity—or surrender to the sword of the radical Allah! “Build the wall, Trump!”—a shibboleth that is so relevant given the Islamists’ current “terrorism” of Europe (and the U.S. and other nations!)
Political Correctness: The Side Effect of Our Weakening Moral Values?
Cambridge Dictionary defines the phrase “politically correct” as “disapproving avoiding language or behavior that any particular group of people might feel is unkind or offensive: The politically correct term ‘firefighter’ is used instead of ‘fireman.'”
This was how President Trump viewed political correctness:
The Weakening Moral Values and the Chaos of Gender Insanity
Ms. Elizabeth of the YouTube Channel titled “The Activist Mommy Official,” published a video clip named “LGBTQQIAAPP?? Gender Insanity!” In my opinion, she pointed out on this material one truth that requires our mature consideration. For she said, in relation to political correctness, that the “pronoun police” wants us to be “politically correct” in addressing people “to accommodate the .001% of the population.” (We mentioned above that we need to say “firefighter,” to be politically correct instead of “fireman.”)
Now, here is the “gender insanity” as discussed by Ms. Elizabeth: the .001% of the 7.5 billion global population wants us to follow the so-called pronoun police idiocy! Hillary Clinton, Obama, the Democrats, the mainstream media, and most educators in the academic world wanted President Donald Trump to be “politically correct” in running the United States. As mentioned above, Trump said, “They have put political correctness above common sense, above your safety, and above all else….I refuse to be politically correct.”
On Gender Definition
A website was set up according to Wanda Skowronska of crisismagazine.com 3 to teach people how to address LGBT and other gender identities. To “help us understand gender fluidity,” wrote Skowronska, “some of the genders read like delusional thinking on steroids. There are genders such as Affectugender—a gender that is affected by mood swings; Glimragender—a faintly shining, wavering gender; Mascfluid—a gender that is fluid in nature, and restricted only to masculine genders; Quoigender—feeling as if the concept of gender is inapplicable or nonsensical to one’s self; Subgender—mostly no gender (‘agender’) with a bit of another gender; and Trigender—the feeling of having three simultaneous or fluctuating genders.
“Why be restricted,” added Skowronska, “by any gender definition? There is always the option of being ‘Agender‘ which entails ‘the feeling of no gender/absence of gender or neutral gender.’ An Australian called Norrie won the right to have no gender in the High Court. I must confess, after gazing at these pronouns given on the Gender Fluidity Support website for quite awhile—‘thon/thon/thons/thonself ve/vir/virs/virself’—my inner farcical, comic bent called out for an Orwell to put this lunacy into its proper perspective. I mean what happens if a Glimragender wants to ‘marry’ a Trigender and they change genders the next week, or indeed the next day. Any budding Orwells out there?” (Emphasis supplied)
The Perversion of the Truth-Is-Absolute Reality
I want to call this gender madness the perversion of the truth-is-absolute reality. Some called it “moral relativism” and the following paragraph by Greg Laurie [oneplace.com] is relevant to our discussion: 4
The Graveyard Movement
“The Democratic Party,” said Larry Holmes, “is the graveyard movement.” I don’t know from what context of the Party’s movement did Mr. Holmes see it as a graveyard flux but that the Democrats are always branded as being more liberal-minded than the conservative Republicans. To put it simply, while most Democrats support abortion or gay marriage, most Republicans don’t. (Now we have a glimpse already as to which US Party do we cast our Facebook like—Democrats or Republicans?)
The Modern Liberal Philosophy in Layman’s Terms
“The American modern liberal philosophy [from which the US Democrats primarily based their platform and advocacies] strongly endorses public spending on programs such as education, health care, and welfare. Important social issues today include addressing inequality, voting rights for minorities, affirmative action, reproductive and other women’s rights, support for LGBT rights, and immigration reform.” [en.wikipedia.org] 6
Liberalism is not just moving into the threshold of political parties and their government campaigns and agenda. It is also the dominant and resolute guiding principle of most people in academia and those holding control in the United Nations and other global institutions.
The open border policies of the European Union and even of the United States during the time of President Obama is one demonstration of the Liberals’ ideology of giving all people human rights’ protection, including those of the LGBT and other gender groups that may be invented soon.

Of Existentialism, One of the Foundations of Liberalism
Truth is absolute. Fire is always hot even if you believe it is cold. The biological male is always male even if he is transgendered. Said Martin Luther King, Jr: “I’m here to say to you this morning that some things are right and some things are wrong. Eternally so, absolutely so.” Gay marriage is wrong morally (eternally so, absolutely so!).
Existentialism, a thought that spruced up liberalism (primarily expounded by Soren Kierkegaard), “is a philosophy that emphasizes individual existence, freedom and choice. It is the view that humans define their own meaning in life, and try to make rational decisions despite existing in an irrational universe. It focuses on the question of human existence, and the feeling that there is no purpose or explanation at the core of existence. It holds that, as there is no God or any other transcendent force, the only way to counter this nothingness (and hence to find meaning in life) is by embracing existence.” [philosophybasics.com] 7
Gender perversion, for example, is one liberalists’ agenda that is founded on the existentialists’ “view that humans define their own meaning in life.” The absoluteness of the male and female genders from the chronicles of God’s creation is one Orthodox Christian teaching being perverted by relativism or liberalism that resulted in the “gay, the LGBT, Affectugender, Glimragender, Mascfluid, Quoigender, Subgender (agender) Trigender” confusion.
“Our youth culture,” said Elizabeth, the Activist Mommy, “is drowning in an identity crisis. We got grown men saying they identify as a six-year-old girl; men identifying as aliens, even dragons; women, identifying as cats.” One video clip posted by ASKDrBrown stated that “If perception is substituted for reality, there is no end to the social madness that follows.” Watch the following identity crisis gone so wrong and bizarre—the demonic side of liberalism:
Morality Does Not Emanate from Human Opinion
Dennis Prager, the founder of the Prager University, said that the one God (monotheism) is the source of the ethics of morality. What is morality? It is “an objective code of right and wrong and does not emanate from human opinion. It emanates from God and therefore transcends human opinion.”
I linked here Prager’s video on the Ten Commandments but learned later it was censored by YouTube. Here is the new link to this very informative presentation on the truth that God authored the Ten Commandments. Godless government leaders may redefine murder based on their opinion, but God’s commandment against murder, for example, overrules all attempts by the Liberals to humanize God’s precepts against sin.
The weakening moral values, liberalism, and gender perversion of humanity accurately fulfill the apostle Paul’s statement in 2 Timothy 3:13: “But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
Perception and Feelings and the Weakening Moral Values
“Moral values,” said Gaurav Nartam, “refer to a set of principles that guide an individual on how to evaluate right versus wrong. People generally apply moral values to justify decisions, intentions and actions, and it also defines the personal character of a person.” [quora.com. Nartam, Gaurav] 8
One of the guiding principles (of morality) is that truth is absolute, in contrast to the liberalist’s belief that truth is relative. Our weakening moral values is caused primarily by relativism and man’s existential notion that the code of right and wrong is subject to human opinion.
One philosophical thought I found on the Internet is that “the notion of how we ought to behave and the reality of how we do behave are varied and real morality behaves in accordance with one’s perception of morality.” [allaboutphilosophy.org] 9
Real “morality behaves in accordance with one’s perception of morality”? Well, it is but plain toxic relativism—since morality is God’s and is, therefore, beyond “one’s perception” or opinion.
The truth-is-absolute matter is subjected to attack by modern thinkers, and the apostle Paul’s observation is really God’s word: “Professing to be wise, they became fools” (Rom. 1:22)—they became atheists; they worshiped idols or even Lucifer directly. (Link: “Vatican Worships Lucifer – The Satan!” Video)
Fortifying the Christian Morality Given the Perversion of Liberalism and the Gender Insanity
Our weakening moral values cover not just the liberals’ idiotic gender confusion but also other forms of relationship or administration (illicit sex, divorce, abuse of women and children, corruption in the government, etc.). Truth is the answer to it all. Morality belongs to God, who is the Truth—Jesus Christ is Truth—He is the Truth! (John 14:6) But people love perception or feelings more than fact and substance. Christ is both fact and reality. He claimed He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He rose from the grave to prove His claims. For over 2000 years the deniers of His resurrection failed to prove that Christ is untrue—that He is just a myth!

It requires genuine Christianity, indeed, to remedy and stop the dive of our weakening moral values from sinking any further. “Set your mind on the things above,” urged the apostle Paul, “not on the things that are on earth.” (Col. 3:2) Or, set your mind against liberalism that is equivalent to a mental disorder of deifying man and humanizing God.
Some so-called Christians Amidst Our Weakening Moral Values
What Christianity we are confidently endorsing as the cure to the madness of liberalism, gender insanity, identity crisis, and other perversions deceitfully termed as new normal such as same-sex marriage?
Taught the apostle Paul that liberalism and other similar anti-God moral teachings are caused by our choice to rebel against the truth. Since God is Truth, all anti-God teachings like Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, are deceptions and caused by our understanding being darkened by sin and unbelief.
Here’s one illustration of the dangers of liberalism (particularly in the Christian denominations):
Scriptures said homosexuality is wrong, but here are some so-called Christians who are endorsing “homosexual conduct as morally valid” and thus approving “of homosexual ordination.”
While the God of the Holy Bible hates liberalism, most nominal Christians, on the other hand, love, support, and practice it. Observe this Pauline teaching against immorality, liberalism, and gay crookedness:
False Christians endorse unchristian values. The apostle Paul wrote that in the last days difficult times will come because the people will become haters of good and God. (See 2 Tim. 3:1-4) In the U.S., for example, confused “Christians” voted for Joe Biden, a staunch supporter of abortion and open borders. The collapse of the great American civilization is looming on the horizon given the people’s support for everything un-American. What can we expect from a largely middle-class society blaming the system, White Supremacy, Xenophobia, global warming, and other issues instead of preserving their weakening values from the complete satanic takeover? Someone said that first came the homosexual revolution, then the politicians protecting this deviation by legislation, and then the court’s romance for what is evil. Big Tech and social media are now conniving to kill freedom of speech in the U.S. and the Christian principle that produced it.
Some Scriptures Against Anti-God Liberalism
17 So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind,
18 being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart;
19 and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness.
20 But you did not learn Christ in this way,
21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus,
22 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit,
23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
24 and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
25 Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
26 Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,
27 and do not give the devil an opportunity.
28 He who steals must steal no longer; but rather he must labor, performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need.
29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.
30 Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.—Ephesians 4:17-32
Is Liberalism is a Mental Disorder?
One Facebook Group has this title: “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.” It posts satirical comments and videos about the inconsistencies of the Liberals in this world particularly the Democrats of the United States. Can you imagine these Liberals opposing the reading of the Bible in public schools in the name of religious freedom and yet supporting the teaching of the Koran to young kids? Can you imagine what potential damage can those powerful pantyhose wearing politicians (to borrow from the U.S. Secretary of Defense, James Mattis) do to our treasured Bible-based moral values of the civilized world such as the marriage of male and female only and that the code of right and wrong (the 10 Commandments) is absolute and not relative since it belongs to God—that morality is God-given?
To the Liberals (and it is lamentable) these objective and absolute Bible truths are offensive since they reject the Holy Scriptures as the only divine code of right and wrong. Their definition of what is true is relative or according to their feelings. If they feel they are a cat or a dragon, they will die defending their error. And that is where true liberalism is a “mental disorder” indeed.
The Human Weakness of Believing the Unbelievable
A mental disease named “acute anxiety syndrome” is actually caused by believing in what is not true. Satan, the father of lies (cf. John 8:44), is behind all forms of deception and confusion. And many now suffered incurable mental ailments because of the demon-inspired fear of sudden death, losing a loved one, or being rejected.
We need to face the challenge of our dying culture of decency as intelligent beings. We need to listen and return to the life of truth and hope since we are wandering towards the valley of complete demonization.
On this planet, the evidence of deception is seen everywhere. The spiders, for instance, catch food by attracting insects to perch on their beautiful web of snares. Deceive a prey is an essential survival dictum in the animal kingdom.
Fortify Morality—Be Dosed with the Christian Thought About Right and Wrong
The weakening moral values, liberalism, and gender perversion on the global scale send a strong message of concern to all people while we still have the time to U-turn from universal demonism and complete moral decay. Our politicians and leaders care for their popularity and vested interests from the golden goose of power. We must rise or see our children experiencing severe identity disorder, out of a touch of truth, believing to be a “cat” woman or an “Affectugender, Glimragender, Mascfluid, Quoigender, Subgender (agender), or Trigender”—you may add the list of gender-confused identity labels!
Jesus once said that “If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness” (Matt. 6:23). Great darkness here also means total deception, even among the most learned. The Theory of Evolution, worshiped by the scholars of this age, is a great lie. For it can never be proven scientifically that man evolved from the apes. After decades of study, the Theory of Evolution remains a theory. It has never become a principle or law. Schools of secular learning cherish this theory, simply because it is anti-God; it is anti-Bible.
The weakening moral values, liberalism, and gender insanity—these are valid issues that are thrown to us as parents and leaders of our young generation—require a solution. If we don’t want to have a grandchild who thinks he or she is a cat or dog, then we need to act through leading our family basically to the ways of God according to the Holy Scriptures. Like us, our young have conscience, too, to discern right from wrong—through our scriptural help. Wrote the apostle Paul: They “show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them.” (Rom. 2:15)
