Our mad, mad marriages (Part 2)

Our HOMES are breaking up!
Divorce has wrenched apart nearly one family in three!
Here's what YOU need to do to SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE!
Here are the LAWS God set in motion to PRESERVE THE HOME.


ALL KNOWN facts about the "average" Watts (Los Angeles) rioter were fed into computers. The computers digested, assorted, and analyzed the facts. Then they reported the "average" Watts race rioter was Negro, 17, doing poorly in school — or a dropout, and came from a BROKEN HOME!

Family life among our peoples is SICK! Our marriages are going MAD!

And why? Simply because the sacred laws preserving and protecting marriage and the family are being trodden underfoot, desecrated, besmirched, and flagrantly defied!


The Onslaught of Sex

Maybe it "embarrasses" you to admit it — but you live in a SEX-CRAZED world! Literature is becoming increasingly filled with sex. But what KIND of sex?

Fully fifty percent of the population of the world you'll meet belong to the opposite sex. Mutual attraction, courtship, love, marriage — the attraction for, and right and normal desire toward, a potential mate, if not an inordinate, illegal, lustful desire, is RIGHT in God's sight. But a refreshing story about two clean young people who grow to love one another, and become married to establish a home would be a miserable FLOP as a motion picture today!

People lust to see WEIRD sex. They want perverted, distorted, illicit sex. And the writers, directors, actors and sponsors are going to give lustful society exactly what it wants.

In the last issue we saw clearly the effect this is having on the minds and morals of our peoples. Our homes are sick — and the children are being forced to pay the awful consequences!

Look what your Creator PROPHESIED of our age! "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, COVETOUS [lustfully yearning for something illegal, illicit!], boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION [but with PERVERTED "affection"], truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away" (II Tim. 3:1-5).

What better description of modern society?

And even religion seems anxious to cooperate. MINISTERS have been telling their flocks lately it's perfectly all right to commit adultery. Some have openly advocated WIFE-SWAPPING! One actually claimed such abominable and adulterous practices had "saved" a marriage! By this, he meant the couple were at least living in the same house. But by No means is their MARRIAGE saved!"

The chiseling away at the foundations of marriage continues at a frightful pace. Religious bodies unashamedly suggest it is "moral" for MEN to "marry" MEN! A group of homosexuals in the U.S. even began court action against a city for "discrimination."

Meanwhile, the entertainment world continues its din and clamor of murder, rape, perversion, drug addiction, masochism, sadism, homosexuality, adultery and all other assorted forms of animalistic licentiousness — all dressed in the respectable garb of public "entertainment."

Your Bible describes the crime and sex lust sweeping across the world today — and very pointedly labels God's people ISRAEL as chief offenders! (Write for the free booklet The United States and the British Commonwealth in Prophecy if you haven't yet proved our national identity.

Listen to the description Jeremiah was inspired to write. "How shall I pardon thee [Israel] for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods; when I had fed them to the full [and between us, we're possessors of fully fifty percent of the world's wealth! but represent only one-sixth of the world's population!], they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses. They were as fed horses in the morning: everyone neighed after his neighbor's wife!" (Jer. 5:7, 8)

What a picture! And how absolutely TRUE! Like brute animals, men bray and neigh after other men's wives. Recent publications showed America's top industrialists and businessmen admitted most of them had extramarital affairs.

God said, "Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely . . .? And . . . stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, 'We are delivered' to do all these ABOMINATIONS?" (Jer. 7:8-10)

And who "delivers" our peoples to commit acts of depravity? Who attempts to salve the conscience of people who flagrantly defy every law of God? Let God answer. "For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them everyone is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest everyone dealeth falsely. [There's the answer!]. . . Were they ashamed when they had committed ABOMINATION? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Eternal" (Jer. 6:13-15).

Countless married couples have marital difficulties. They turn to marriage counselors, to their pastors and ministers for advice. What is the advice some of them are receiving?

Many are being told it is PERFECTLY NORMAL to commit adultery. That sexual deviation, depravity, abnormality or infidelity is sometimes "GOOD" for their marriage!

What are our families "told" by the magazine articles they read? What about the television husband-and-wife shows? What do the comics say? What do the newspapers tell us about the way other families are living?

They talk constantly of SEX. Of infidelity, unfaithfulness, unchastity; with a liberal sprinkling of lies, deceit, hypocrisy, crime, and perversion.

The widely acclaimed television serial "Peyton Place" is a continuing probe into the secret recesses of the minds of "normal" and "modern" people — people who lie, cheat, steal, commit adultery, and drift from one meaningless experience into another.

But somehow the whole thing seems "justified" — because, after all, ISN'T EVERYONE ELSE DOING IT?

And besides — all the reasons for the wrong acts are carefully highlighted. By the time the crime, or the rape, or the marital infidelity is revealed — the viewer is found to be sympathizing with the perpetrator's motives.

No, the modern ministry is NOT ASHAMED — and neither does it blush! Rather, leaders of large, respected religious organizations unashamedly and OPENLY advocate acceptance of homosexuals as perfectly "normal" members of society. Unfaithful mates are excused in their doctrines. Premarital sex experience is called "wholesome" or "good." Masturbation is called normal and "healthy."

And if all this giant surge toward wild sexual abandon is NORMAL — if it is HEALTHY — then just what, we candidly ask, is ABNORMAL, and UNHEALTHY?

God thunders from His high heaven:

"WOE unto them that CALL EVIL GOOD, and good EVIL . . . which JUSTIFY THE WICKED FOR REWARD, and take away the RIGHTEOUSNESS of the righteous from him!" (Isa. 5:20-23)


What Are the RESULTS?

Christ said you shall know whether a person or a principle is right by the fruits — by what it produces. And what are the "fruits" of this modern "marriage-go-round" of unbridled REBELLION against the laws God set in motion to preserve our homes?

Divorce has ripped asunder nearly EVERY THIRD HOME IN THE UNITED STATES! Millions of children must grow up with foster parents, or no parents. Others are reared in unhappy homes, filled with sour, bitter, constant family STRIFE.

Fully fifty percent of the rising number of homicides involving members of the same family are committed by husbands and wives KILLING each other.

What ARE the "fruits" of this rising flood of immorality and sex?

The fruits are rotten. They're hideously bitter. They're noxious and odious.

And God says OUR OWN WAYS are punishing us! "Thine OWN WICKEDNESS shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee . . ." (Jer. 2:19). "Your iniquites have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden GOOD things from you" (Jer. 5:25).

God says there is a way of life that appeals to man — it seems "RIGHT" to the carnal, human mind. But that way of life ends in DEATH. Its fruits are EVIL (Prov. 14:12; 16:25).

What about it?

Are you afraid to admit the stark TRUTH about the wretched lives of so many MILLIONS of our families? Are you afraid to be HONEST WITH YOURSELF about YOUR OWN marriage — or the one you hope to enter some day?

If you're not a spiritual and moral coward, if you're not afraid to ADMIT these things are true — then it's time you learned what God says about the laws of marriage.

God INSTITUTED marriage. He binds married couples together. Jesus said, "Have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain [two] shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but ONE FLESH. What therefore God hath joined together LET NOT MAN PUT ASUNDER"! (Matt. 19:4-6)

Marriage is a physical union. But it is a DIVINE INSTITUTION! And GOD AL MIGHTY stands back of it. It is NOT an accidental, changing phenomenon of ancient tribal customs — and it is NOT destined to become a "thing of the past."

You need to read, and reread our free BOOK On the subject of MARRIAGE you need to see WHY humans marry. You need to learn much YOU WERE NEVER TAUGHT about yourself, and about your marriage. If you're adult, or, if you are engaged to be married and have already set the date for the ceremony, then YOU NEED THIS BOOK.

Write in immediately for your own copy of the free book God Speaks Out on "The New Morality."

What are the laws that will PROTECT the home? What kind of ORDER should exist in the family? Who is in charge? Is marriage a 50-50 proposition? Should wives leave out the word "obey" when saying their marriage vows?

Listen to what your Creator says about the GOVERNMENT in the home — and compare. THINK about it. Ask yourself whether YOUR marriage is governed this way — GOD's way. Ask yourself whether you KNOW many whose marriages are governed THIS way.
