People believe that man can be perfect if only the cultural climate can be made perfect. If we remove religion, opinions, rigid standards, war and guns, all of which divide people, then mankind can finally be perfect.
It is the utopia of the godless intellectual. They believe that if they can enact the right social legislation, then all crime and hate will disappear and all will be love and joy. John Lennon’s “Imagine” is the pantheon of this delusional dream.
However, we know that Satan will do everything he can to destroy what man builds (Romans 1:18-32; 3:10-18, 23). Therefore, we know how naive these Utopian beliefs are.
We wish everyone would do right all the time but we know it will never happen. Humanity will always make bad decisions and act with greed, malice, anger and hate.
All we can do is to live transformed lives (Romans 12:1-2) and keep teaching Biblical truth and pray it spreads (Matthew 28:18-20).
We must pray for our society that truth and godliness can become the hallmarks of American society and God’s truth can be our guiding light.
