It is interesting to see the similarities between the Fall of the Roman Empire and the course the United States is heading.

Between 1960 and 1990, out-of-wedlock births in the USA increased more than 500 percent (from 5.3 percent to 28 percent), single-parent families tripled, about 50 million babies were murdered in the womb, and violent crimes increased 500 percent. About 16,000 crimes occur on or around school campuses each day! In 2005, 37 percent of births were to unwed mothers, up from 36 percent in 2004 and 28 percent in 1990. The report stated that “The overall rise reflects the burgeoning number of people who are putting off marriage or are living together without getting married.” Are these the “Healthy Families” that the amoral campaign of that name is building by supporting abortion?

Homosexuals not only flaunt their sin in public, they are fêted, wooed, indulged, and thanked by politicians for their votes. It’s Sodom and Gomorrah again––or worse! In January 2007, Christian Vanneste, an MP in France’s ruling party was fined nearly $4,000 for saying that homosexuality is “inferior to heterosexuality” and would be “dangerous for humanity if it was pushed to the limit.” Of course, these are the facts. But daring to express the undeniable truth unleashes the wrath of police and courts in their zeal to protect the feelings of a favored class that complains of being offended.

Homosexuals and lesbians don’t procreate as God commanded mankind to do. The Creator’s very first commandment to Adam and Eve was, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…” (Gn 1:28). “Gays” defy God’s very first words to mankind. They seek not children but pleasure, to the exclusion of all else. And in their self-absorbed folly, they taunt us with “gay pride.” Are they proud that their lifestyle is not only “dangerous” (it shortens the lifespan by 24 years2) but that it would abruptly end the human race if universally adopted? What madness supports this celebrated perversion?

Historian Polybius attributed the fall of ancient Rome to pedophilia progressed from rampant homosexuality among aristocrats. During the reign of Justinian, homosexuality and bestiality were acceptable as Roman entertainment.

However, many historians, including Edward Gibbon, in The Decline and Fall of The Roman Empire, suggest that the fall of Rome was assured only when the depravity of Roman society transcended to the military’s legions, where such self-indulgences replaced disciplines that made Rome’s legions so formidable. Moral corruption of the legions left the people unprotected from the crude armies that ultimately sacked Rome.

A great many children were born out of wedlock.

The Romans practiced infanticide, contraception and abortion in order to limit the number of children born to the Roman family. In terms of contraception, the Romans used amulets, magic potions, formulas, potions, oils and appointments. Most were ineffective.

Interestingly enough, the world says that Rome fell because of:

* Decay
* Financial Problems
* The Dole and Barbarians
* Economic, Military, Gradual
* Christianity
* Vandals and Religious Controversy
* Division of the Empire
* Lead
* Hoarding and Deficit

Even the rise of Islam is proposed as the reason for Rome’s fall, by some who think the Fall of Rome happened at Constantinople in the 15th Century.

I don’t know about you, is it any wonder that the United States as a great nation is not mentioned in the Bible? Could it be that we are following the footsteps of the Roman Empire and will collapse from within?

Look at the details:

1. Children born out of wedlock
2. Homosexuality
3. Sexual perversions
4. Pedophelia
5. Military adopting sexual sin
6. Abortion
7. Infanticide
8. Contraception
9. Witchcraft
10. Islam
11. Religions turning away from true Christian roots

Look up, oh Christian! If you are not 100% certain that you are going to Heaven when you die, you should put the matter to rest today.

~Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

~2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
