A new ungodly world order
Never in the history of mankind have the world’s institutions and basic values been shaken to the very core of their foundations as in our contemporary society.
Those which in the past were considered as moral standards against which behaviour in all areas of life (especially economics, politics and religion) could be measured and judged are threatened and made out to be obsolete and old-fashioned.
The yardstick against which comparisons and measurement could be made is slowly fading with the resulting instability and confusion in moral thought which is increasing by the day.
The individualistic and relativistic society is perhaps the hallmark of our post-modern age. Humans have little time to congregate and spend quality time in an intimate atmosphere to discuss profound and important issues as a family, as society continues to reject universal laws and introduce its own brand of principles.
There is also a prevailing trend where the established order and long-standing institutions, which set up the very standard of behaviour, are being rejected and threatened. The individual is becoming the measure of all things. Every judgement comes from the individual as the ultimate standard that does not require any societal norms.
Some specific examples from the world around us will illustrate this. These are taken from the areas of the economic, social and political life.
This trend being observed in politics is one where corruption is covered up and when exposed the person will insist that his actions were not corrupt and he/she does not relinquish his/her high position and projects an image of the most benevolent and hard-working person in society in an attempt to justify the corruption.
Some political leaders are becoming more like tragic clowns. For example, Donald Trump’s speeches in the American presidential election campaign do not require much elaboration and introduction in the way he made fun of a disabled journalist, degraded and abused women and other cruel jibes that surely show that his behaviour is one without any moral principles and respect towards others. Indeed the very core values of the American Constitution and those of its founding fathers are being flouted and trampled on. When America goes down, it usually has a cascading effect on the world.
Another area where moral standards are being weakened is in the realm of the right to privacy of the individual. We are being watched and profiled in cyber space. There are people whose job is to hack and crack codes and enter private lives. Instead of condemning such acts, these people are portrayed and hailed as heroes and protected. The example of Julian Assange and Wikileaks is just the tip of the iceberg.
Indeed, the world order as we know it is being shaken up. The Arab Spring that quickly turned into an Arab winter of terror and the Syrian civil war is killing innocent children by the score every day. What was initially seen as a shake-up of dictatorial regimes in Libya, Iraq and other states has led to more violence and bloodshed and the establishment of extreme radical Islam with the consequential spread of terrorism around the world. The world has become a less safe place to live in.
The European Union is also being affected by this instability. The migration patterns increase by the day with people fleeing war zones by the thousands as the Middle East is on fire with chaos and casualties. We are seeing the worst immigration crises since the Second World War. The Brexit move is another phenomenon of the way in which countries change their way of thinking about institutions that threaten their very existence. Britain’s exist from the EU may have a domino effect on other members of the EU and disintegrate the EU’s existence.
Another shake-up and attack is on family values. What before was considered as the traditional family of husband and wife is no longer the moral standard as humanity perverts itself into marrying trees, animals, marrying their own self and other twisted ideas of how marriage and sex should be conducted.
Other issues taking the world by storm include such important questions as to who has the right over life in the area of Bioethics and embryonic stem cell experimentation. The purpose of God’s plan for life is being skewed. There is also experimenting on hybrid forms of creatures (half human half animal, half animal and half another animal) and paving the way for something that will ultimately be hard to tackle and control.
On the religious front, humanity grapples to find meaning and belief in God and how God fits into the picture. Humanity continues to seek the truth in aliens and extra-terrestrials. Even the Roman Catholic Church (which claims to be the only true church) seems to want to revise the God-given Gospel Truth as shebelieves that extraterrestrials will soon visit the earth and she will baptise them. These ETs or aliens are nothing but demonic beings and signal the return of the Nephilim (as they disguise themselves as benevolent creatures). No wonder that the Roman Catholic Church has the largest observatory and most powerful telescope in the world. Will we be soon seeing aliens and spacecraft landing on top of the Vatican?

The above is just a sample of what humanity is building for itself; a legacy for a free for all society where Godly laws, morals, values and principles are slowly but surely being
flushed down the drain.
Is humanity provoking God to anger with its muddled philosophies and theologies where might is right as the individualistic culture of snatch and grab spreads?
Our Western civilisation has been built on Judeo-Christian values which are being threatened without mercy. Will this destruction of God’s very own laws usher the final meltdown of the end of the end times?
Surely something big is in the offing and the fast track course on the road of no return seems to have already been taken.
