Editor’s note: This article, as you can see by the header above, was published some time ago. In light of the turmoil of today it seems timely. May God move us to revival in our churches!

Why is our society so morally and spiritually out of control today? Why have we swung from an honorable society to a society of crime, sex, and humanism?
