They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, to hew for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.” (Jeremiah 2:13)

The only way to fix our broken society

May 16, 2017

by Dr. Ed Young

In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes.


We have veered off course as a civilization, as a society, for two reasons: we have refused as a people to look to a transcendent, authoritative God for moral absolutes, and we have depended instead on our own depraved determination of what is right and wrong. God said this same thing to the nation of Israel thousands of years ago: “My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, to hew for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.” (Jeremiah 2:13)

Think about it. A hundred and thirty-five thousand students go to school with weapons every day in America. Twenty-one percent of students say they do not go into restrooms in their schools because they are afraid of being molested or attacked. Forty percent of teenage women in America will have been pregnant at least once by the time they are nineteen. Suicide among teenagers has increased three hundred percent in the last thirty years. One third of all teachers are contemplating retirement or career change next year because the conditions under which they must teach are so threatening. Simply put, the evil of our day is so pervasive we cannot live without it touching us somehow, somewhere. What is the answer? Men and women everywhere must look to God and say, “Yes. There are absolutes and immutable laws at work in this world. You have established them. And if we are going to live successfully, we must obey them.” When this happens, America will come to its collective senses. Revival will replace relativism, and we will have hope once again.
