The allegations against Bill Cosby are indicative of the deeper moral corruption we see in the porn and sex industry in our country. As Christians, it’s easy to point fingers at individuals such as Bill Cosby, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Clinton, & Tiger Woods, but there’s a much deeper issue that needs to be addressed. It’s the issue of what we allow into the gateway of our eyes and the National moral decline of America.
Jesus said in Matthew 18:18 (Amp) that, “Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven.” The epidemic lies in the fact, that we as Christians have allowed this sexual revolution not only to exist and grow, but even well-known pastors, and people in ministry, and many Christians have fallen prey to the wicked web of sexual addiction themselves and have permitted it to become normal in their own lives.
So how do we do what Jesus said and make the moral decline of our country, our churches, and our families to be, “forbidden, declared improper, and unlawful”? I believe the answer is transparency. Those who are addicted to sexual sins are also bound by shame, guilt, and the fear of anyone finding out. We truly have to create an atmosphere where people, regardless of their stature or positions, feel free to come to other safe Believers, who will not judge these individuals, but rather realize that we all carry the brokenness of sin and need Jesus as our Savior in all areas of life. Rather than crucifying individuals such as Bill Cosby, what would happen if we all began to pray, and call on the One who was crucified for ALL of our sins?
