The Most Important Revolution of the Twentieth Century

"The most important revolution of the twentieth century has been the sexual revolution... Contraception replaced conception.  Pleasure was separated from responsibility.  It was as if a license was given out, legitimizing the bending of every part of our lives around serving ourselves.  Since that time, divorce, remarriage, abortion, premarital sex, and extramarital sex, as well as homosexuality have been accepted by increasing percentages of the public.  Pornography is huge business.  This is not just a problem with society out there.  Many churches have found their members plagued by failed marriages and illicit affairs, by so-called private sins that turn into public disgraces, some of which are known, some of which are not yet known."  Mark Dever

Be appalled, O heavens, at this: be shocked, be utterly desolate, declares the LORD, for my people have committed two evils:  they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hered out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water.
Jeremiah 2:12-13
