Cultural Decline

A good quote from James Leroy Wilson.

Government cannot prevent cultural decline. Only cultural renewal can stop cultural decline. No civil power can prevent it. Anyway, it is not the role of the Church to preserve our cultural heritage.

It is often said that this was a Christian nation and now it is not. Who is to blame? Darwin? Freud? The Supreme Court? If the Church once had a dominant place in the culture and now it does not, there is no one to blame but the Church itself. Spiritual renewal leading to cultural renewal is the only means of reversing the trend.

The culture is in decline, but it is Christians who allowed that to happen by transferring responsibilities of the Church and the family to the state.
