Girls Gone Wild

By now everyone has seen the shocking video of the planned, premeditated, brutal beating of a school girl by her peers. As the bizarre video continues to play across the airwaves, the question remains, what was the motive behind this savage act? That’s the shocking revelation in this story — it appears the only reason for the beating was to get video on the Internet; their 15 minutes of fame we guess.

Bizarre. We can’t (and won’t) comment on this specific case as we don’t know more than anyone else but what we’ve seen on the news. However, this trend continues to grow; another story about kids attempting to induce another student into a severe allergic reaction by secretly using peanuts (peanut allergies being no laughing matter) — after the student ends up in the hospital for days, it’s not funny (or maybe it was to them, but then that’s the point).

We’re beginning to see more and more of this as people lose their moral and ethical compass and descend into an abyss of behavior which is not only sick and twisted, but completely random and unexplainable as well. Yet what caused these twisted events? Is it preventable? Could there be a relationship between current events and past actions by society?

The Christian Perspective

Is this a logical result from society’s previous actions? When you remove God from school, government, and society, and instead tell kids they’re the result of cosmic accidents and descended from animals, why are we shocked when they act without remorse as if nothing matters but their own desires?

This shouldn’t be construed as an argument against evolution — if the facts prove the theory, fine. Unfortunately, they don’t. So why is the theory continued to be pushed? Some continue to push God farther and farther away seeking a naturalistic, atheistic explanation for humans existence. But when you tell people they’re descended from animals, don’t be surprised when they exhibit animalistic behavior lacking cognitive and rational thought (to find scientific discussion, search our site for evolution).

Society created a group of sociopaths with malignant narcissist tendencies, and yet is shocked by the fact.

The Existence of Evil

It used to be popular to say “every day in every way we’re getting better and better” — but opening up a newspaper proves that simply isn’t true. You see, evil exists. Many don’t want to admit that, but if you’ve stared into the face of pure evil, you don’t doubt it.

Part of the problem lies in the denial of evil and the idea people are basically good — everyone can be “rehabilitated”; even after thousands of failures many refuse to acknowledge the basic fact — the Bible says man is sinful, self-serving and deceitfully wicked. That doesn’t mean your neighbor is an axe-murderer, just that in the end, mankind looks out for himself and what he wants above all else; selfish tendencies are natural and inborn (as anyone who has watched 2-year old kids play knows).

Value Relativism

Kids have been taught “if it feels good do it”, and combined with a lack of moral absolutes in government, law, education, and society causes unexplainable acts like random beatings for no other reason than to get the video on the Internet. “Value relativism” is popular because it means anything goesany situation becomes acceptable, because your values may not be mine — it’s simply an excuse for everyone to do what is right in their own eyes and justify whatever heinous acts they desire.

But we no longer call it “value relativism” — it’s been renamed to “tolerance”. Be careful with that word, it’s not what you think. Most of us think of tolerance (for example in the religious sense) as a situation where if you wanted to believe one way, and I another, thats OK (of course, at most one is right, but that’s a subject for another time); tolerance is a free debate and exchange of ideas. It doesn’t mean you won’t be exposed to ideas you may not agree with, just that in a tolerant society all views are allowed to exist — if you want to believe the world is flat, go ahead — but don’t expect much agreement.

But that’s not what tolerance means anymore. It’s a denial of moral absolutes, and a demonetization of anyone who believes absolute right and wrong exists. It’s amazing how intolerant of other beliefs the tolerant crowd is.

Of course, the denial of moral absolutes is not only frightening in its results, it turns out nobody really believes it. All you have to do is tell someone believing in value relativism you want to steal their car — and you’ll quickly find out they actually do believe in the existence of moral absolutes. Nevertheless, value relativism continues to be taught, and we continue to be shocked by the results of that false philosophy.

A Revival and Return to Godly Leadership

It’s time for people to return to God; this country needs a revival, it needs to abandon the absurdity of value relativism, it needs leaders willing to follow after God, it needs to acknowledge the existence of evil, it needs to stop pushing God away and out of every possible corner — so much that it’s no longer “Easter vacation” and “Christmas vacation” but “spring break”, and “winter recess”. Absurd — as if changing the names might change the reason those holidays were created in the first place.

Government leaders continue to claim devotion to God while taking every opportunity to poke Him in the eye at every turn, driving God completely out of society. The Constitution requires freedom of religion, not freedom from religion (note to those who might misconstrue this as a call for theocracy — we aren’t).

Church pulpits no longer teach the Word of God, but politics and potlucks (and don’t mention sin and the need for a savior).

We’ve told kids they’re a cosmic accident and should do whatever feels good to them (as no moral absolutes exist).

We’ve extinguished the influence and guiding moral compass of God everywhere we can.

We’ve thrown morality and ethics off the cliff, and celebrated as it plunged to the rocky waters below.

Do we then have a right to complain about the logical results of those actions?
