Genetics Versus Sin

We are living in some crazy times, and nothing is more wacky than the claim that sexual degenerates are "born that way." I was listening to a FoxNews interview today of John Walsh (host of America's Most Wanted show). When asked why anyone would rape a little child, and then murder that child, Mr. Walsh stated that he was baffled; but, then said that he thinks it's genetic.
I surely am not criticizing Mr. Walsh in any way, and feel much hurt that his own son was attacked and beheaded by a sicko monster; but, the problem is not genetic. I believe Mr. Walsh is sincere, and I'm not writing this article against him in any way. I think he's doing a great job by fighting against the perverted creeps that target our children, and against the lackadaisical lawmakers and politicians who are apathetic. However, there are several other related issues which need to be addressed concerning sexual perversion and rampant sin in America, and as a born-again Christian I would like to address a few of them.
Sin is NOT Genetic!
The definition of Genetic is: "A tending to occur among members of a family usually by heredity, of or relating to, or produced by or being a gene." When the unsaved world speaks of "genetics," they are referring to the physical body, and rightfully so. However, there is nothing in the Word of God which teaches that sin is passed down through man's physical gene's. To teach this is to make two erroneous claims:
That sexual degenerates cannot help themselves, because it's hereditary.
That certain people are born with a tendency to commit certain sins more than others.
We read in Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." All humans are sinners. Children are not held accountable by God as sinners until they reach the age of enlightenment, which varies from one child to another. We read in Jeremiah 17:9, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" The Word of God condemns ALL mankind as sinners, and as having a deceitful and wicked heart. This is not to say that all people are criminals, not at all. What it does mean is that there are good sinners, and bad sinners; but, we are all sinners, with the potential to commit more sins.
There are some very loving and wonderful people in this world; but they are not perfect, and do commit sin. One of the greatest overlooked sins is that of apathy and indifference. I heard today on CNN that 6,000,000 poor people in Sudan are now without any food, because the United Nations doesn't have enough money. I couldn't help but think of all the moviestars who continually throw $100,000 parties. I heard last week on the news that 8,200,000 Americans are now millionaires! Yet, the poor starve to death in the world.
We were all born sinners, with the capability to commit the most horrible sins. As we know from life, people often do the unexpected. When John Wayne Gacy (a mass murdering homosexual who raped and brutally killed 33 young men) was executed, scientists extracted his brain and tested it, hoping to find some evidence of something gone wrong. They found Gacy's brain to be perfectly normal. You see friend, they were looking in the wrong place. Jeremiah 17:9 declares that man's HEART is desperately wicked, and the heart affects the mind.
The "heart" is part of a man's soul, his true self. When a person dies, that soul goes to either Heaven or Hell. The source of mankind's wickedness is his sinful heart--which is exactly why no amount of reformation, education, rehabilitation, or institutionalization is going to help him. The only hope is in receiving a new heart, which is the Holy Spirit of God. We receive this Spirit when we believe upon Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour, by faith alone in the precious blood that He shed for our sins.
The problem is not genetic flaws, or monster genes. The problem is the sin-nature, which every person is born with. It's not inherited genetically, but spiritually. Since everyone is born with the SAME sin-nature, we are all capable of committing the worst sins. Obviously, children who grow up in abusive homes are much more likely to repeat the same sins; but, it's not because they were "born that way." Interestingly, we never hear the "experts" on TV talk about sin, or the sin-nature. They are the blind leading the blind.
In Psalm 51:5 king David states, "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me." Romans 3:12 reads, "They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one." You can't even begin to address the problem of crime (in any society), until you first identify the root cause of SIN. The only alternative is to create so many laws that society becomes a prison state, and this is exactly what's happening in America. There are over 1,000,000 federal laws alone, and thousands more on the way. There are over 40,000 gun laws in America, and they don't work. It always goes back to common sense folks ... an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
We Have Brought This Curse Upon Ourselves in America!
The best way to fight the darkness is to shine the light!
It is NO coincidence that America has deteriorated into a large Sodom and Gomorrah in the 40-years following the complete removal of prayer and the Word of God from our public school system. Take a look at the charts from the dropdown menu to the left--the charts are worth a thousands words. We have brought today's moral dilemma in society upon ourselves. We are getting what we deserve, and believe me, the consequences are just beginning. With the federal government $9,000,000,000 in debt as of March 2006, and massive debt owed to other nations such as Communist China, things can only get much worse economically. What do you think is going to happen to the crime rate then? Could this be why Halliburton has been contracted to build concentration camps in America? You know it! When the American people wake up to reality one day, it will be too late, and we will be enslaved by our own indifference and love for sin. Just this week, The White House announced a total restructuring of FEMA. You see, they're getting scared that too many American's are waking up to the truth, and they need to be ready to silence Christians, Patriots, and God-fearing citizens.
We have brought this upon ourselves in America! Everything from feminism, to hellish rock-n-roll music has destroyed America, and it all flourished after 1963, when prayer and the Bible were gone forever from our public schools. It's our fault as a nation because we have tolerated this subversion of America for so long. Would to God Christians would have spoken out in 1916 when the treasonous Federal Reserve System was created. Would to God that Christians had spoken out when Hugh Hefner began publishing his abominable Playboy garbage in 1953. Would to God that Christians had spoken out with Anita Bryant against the homosexual movement in the 1970's. Even today, it is RARE for a church to PUBLICLY cry aloud against the evils of abortion, homosexuality, and booze. Why are the churches silent? The problem is that today's churches don't know what persecution really is, if they did, church membership would drop 99% nationwide.
Why is it so difficult for all of the talk show hosts, psychologists, teachers, politicians, and other "experts" to understand that children who are educated without God will grow up to be heathens? The reason is because the "experts" are all heathens themselves, ignorant of God's Truth. You can't teach a child that he evolved from stardust, or a gaseous explosion, without a God, and then expect him to have self esteem. No wonder kids are shooting each other. No child should be taught the "theory" of evolution as if it were a fact.
They shouldn't be taught such nonsense at all. What is so dangerous about teaching Creationism? What are the heathens so afraid of? Or is it their intense hatred for God? Yes, that is it (John 3:20). Such foolish teachings as evolution eliminate the fact of SIN, and give children the lasting impression that there is no such thing as sin. As the children grow older, they are taught that it's ok to murder babies in abortion, that it's ok to be a perverted homosexual, that its ok to have sex before marriage, etc, etc, etc ... and then societies leaders and "professionals" wonders what happened? What a bunch of educated idiots! It's simple folks--No God, No Morals. This is why sin is running so rampant all across America.
Some will argue that children should be taught morals and faith at home, and not school. However, this only works in theory, not in reality. The average public school student sees his or her teachers more than their own parents, and in many cases, more. Then the poor kids have homework piled on them, eliminating any family time together. No wonder America is crumbling into ashes! I am totally opposed to any homework. If a teacher can't teach a kid in 6-hours every day, then something is wrong with the teacher. Home time should be family time. America is going to ruin because it's families are falling apart. The culprit is SIN, not bad genes.
Sin is No Longer Called Sin!
We are living in a characterless generation of fools, who seek to blame lack of discipline and responsibility on anything except SIN. The alcoholic is no longer consider a sinful drunkard; but, now he suffers from a chemical dependency. Society has even gone as far as to call alcoholism a "disease." No, it's a dirty rotten sin! Whereas homosexuals were once counseled by the American Psychiatric Institute as having a PROBLEM; now they're counseled to accept their "alternative lifestyle." No, it's a heathen and deplorable lifestyle of SIN.
Thieves are now treated as victims of "cleptophobia"; but, God calls them sinners who deserve to be punished. Women who rebel against their husbands nowadays are called "liberated feminists"; but, God calls them witches (1st Samuel 15:23). Pedophiles are said to be mentally-ill, and are given ridiculously light prison sentences, if they go to prison at all. Immodestly dressed women, who sensually pose on TV and in music videos, creating lasciviousness, are called entertainers; but, God calls them whorish sinners. The sinful gambler who squanders his families bread and butter, is said to have a "compulsive disorder." Excuses, excuses, excuses ... but no one wants to face then fact that SIN is undermining America!!!
