Cultural Morality? NO!
I know it seems that I'm beating a dead horse with this post but it just seems like people aren't grasping the error of being involved with this movement of making the cultural more moral. Below are 16 Reasons why Christians should not be involved in the cultural morality movement. Please don't ask me to explain these in detail for more details please download the sermon preached by John MacArthur titled "The Deadly Dangers of Moralism". It really turns my stomach to hear Christians attack those who are dead in their trespasses and sins and have yet to been born again, as if one thinks that they some how mustered up their own good morals and then were regenerated. Where is the compassion for the lost?
