Every portion of Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching (doctrine/instruction), for reproof (conviction when we sin), for correction (setting things right when we err) and for training in righteousness (when out of shape in righteousness) that the man (or woman) of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
And with that, the apostle Paul explains the cataclysmic disaster and cultural reversal foisted on the American people through the secularization of culture and ideological bent of the U.S. Supreme Court in the early/mid-20th century. Judicial overreach usurped the authority of the Legislative and Executive Branches of Government by sanctioning the induction of pagan secularism in Engel v. Vitale (1962), Abington School District v. Schempp (1963) and Stone v. Graham (1980).
A later pair of misbegotten Supreme Court's adjudications includes the outright fabrication in 1973 of a "constitutional right" to kill unborn babies in Roe v. Wade, while the second in 2015 called upon the no less fictitious "right" to homosexual intercourse and constitutional marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges.
When decoupled from biblical morality and unguided by God-inspired wisdom, a society's condition of moral and social vigor and wellness can only be what it currently has become: anything a majority of nine Justices any given day can agree upon. Meaning that "no judicial decision is ever final, that the law both follows the event (therefore is not eternal or certain) and is made by man (who is not divine or true)."
America's Founders understood that virtue and liberty are inseparably linked and that liberty cannot long be preserved in the absence of virtue among the people and their representatives. Immorality is not a matter of indifference to God.
Praise be to God that Rahabs and Gideons are beginning to stand.
