In all of the laments and reproaches made by our seers and prophets, one misses any mention of “sin,” a word which used to be a veritable watchword of prophets. It was a word once in everyone’s mind, but now rarely if ever heard. Does that mean that no sin is involved in all our troubles—sin with an “I” in the middle? Is no one any longer guilty of anything? Guilty perhaps of a sin that could be repented and repaired or atoned for? Is it only that someone may be stupid or sick or criminal—or asleep? Wrong things are being done, we know; tares are being sown in the wheat field at night. But is no one responsible, no one answerable for these acts? Anxiety and depression we all acknowledge, and even vague guilt feelings; but has no one committed any sins? Where, indeed, did sin go? What became of it? Dr. Karl Menninger

Secularism has swept through the land, removing the moral compass from our culture and replacing it with narcissism. People are directionless, guilt-ridden, godless, hopeless. Christians must stand up and give the answer from a biblical worldview. ― John MacArthur
Such blasphemous rebellion is energized by the corruption of the collection of sinful hearts which make up this nation. Behind this collection of sinful, corrupt, human hearts, stands the realm of Satan.
The Bible says Satan holds the world in his hands; the whole world lies in the lap of the evil one. God, Christ, Holy Spirit, the Bible, Church, Truth, are his enemies.
Satan rules the world of sinners, and has power in the highest places. He rules the kingdom of darkness, seeking to destroy all that is light, all that is truth, all that is pure, all that is holy, all that is virtuous, all that is good. ― John MacArthur

TACKLING SOME OF THE TOUGH QUESTIONS RELATED TO THE CORONAVIRUS
Randy Alcorn / March 20, 2020
The New Atheism is dead. It was conceptually dead at birth. But now, it has stopped twitching.
The discoveries of the last 30 years are now insurmountable for the skeptical materialist. The only escape for an atheist or agnostic is to suppress or reject the now painfully obvious, crystal clear, unambiguous
“The truth redeems. The truth preserves. The truth makes us free. The truth makes us holy.”
R. C. Sproul
Almost one hundred years ago, the project to reduce the world to mathematical physics failed suddenly and completely: “One of the best-kept secrets of science,” as physicist Nick Herbert writes,
“Physicists have lost their grip on reality.”
The world, we are now told, emerges spontaneously, out of “nothing,” and constitutes a “multiverse,” where “anything that can happen will happen, and it will happen an infinite number of times.”
Legendary reclusive genius Wolfgang Smith demonstrates on shockingly obvious grounds the dead end at which physics has arrived, and how we can “return, at last, to the real world.”
The End of Quantum Reality introduces this extraordinary man to a contemporary audience which has, perhaps, never encountered a true Philos-Sophia, one as intimately at ease with quantum physics as with the greatest schools of human wisdom.
“We are told dogmatically that Evolution is an established fact; but we are never told who has established it, and by what means. We are told, often enough, that the doctrine is founded upon evidence, and that indeed this evidence is henceforward above all verification, as well as being immune from any subsequent contradiction by experience; but we are left entirely in the dark on the crucial question wherein, precisely, this evidence consists. And the salient fact is this: if by evolution we mean macroevolution (as we henceforth shall), then it can be said with the utmost rigor that the doctrine is totally bereft of scientific sanction. Now, to be sure, given the multitude of extravagant claims about evolution promulgated by evolutionists with an air of scientific infallibility, this may indeed sound strange...
And yet, the fact remains that there exists to this day not a shred of bona fide scientific evidence in support of the thesis that macroevolutionary transformations have ever occurred.”
“It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not religion, but the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
“It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favors.”
Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion, and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.
—George Washington, Alexander Hamilton
"The only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican form of government is the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible."
Eugene Peterson, The Message
There are difficult times ahead!
Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They’ll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes, they are animals. Stay clear of these people.
2 Timothy 3:1-5, The Message
Difficult times are here, now!
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Ephesians 6:10-12 KJV
