    Is God and our morals disappearing in our society?

    I worry that God is just fading away in our society. I think that it's so crazy that we have psychic shows, ghost hunting shows, etc. but when it comes to Jesus, nobody wants to talk about it.  Like that whole t-bow thing, how his friend said he should stop the 'God talk'

    YES they is one its about getting closer to the creator of us and the universe and by believing in GOD,  while living in world filled with drugs, , and all kinds of evil , its great to know that God brings joy so bliss, and his peace that he brings, as well well as love is beyond comprehension, beyond words.

    With all due respect, I think your question is also your answer. Our society is one that's multicultural. Not everyone is a Christian, and so to attempt to rely on Christian morals, while you're quite free to do so in your own life, is stepping on the beliefs of others. That's why the divide between church and state was initially enforced, so people of any denomination would be free to live in a society which did not institute prejudicial treatment for or against them.

    Let's take that statement, "Stop the God Talk" as an example for a second. God's only begotten son was Jesus, who among his other titles was known to be the Sherpherd of Man. If you think about that, it's not really very comforting. Sherpherds care for their flock solely because the flock is a commodity, eventually to be sheered for their fleece and slaughtered for their meat. What's more, sheep follow the shepherd blindly, right into the abbatoir and the waiting knife. The crux of why people are trying to avoid "God Talk" and why God is dissapearing from society is that we value our sense of free will, self-determination, and ability to think for ourselves, which, if you read the Bible, God supposedly gave us, though He doesn't want us to exercise.

    I've begun to ramble, for which I apologize, but what I'm saying is that Godliness and morals needn't necessarily be the same thing. Passages in the Old Testament still say slavery is OK, and the husband is free to beat the wife is she is disobedient. These Godly acts are probably not what you think of when you think of morals. Chances are your ideas of morality have been tailored over time to better fit changes in human lifestyles. In summary, your morals aren't necessarily godly, nor need they God's written backing to be good things. By all means, keep your morals, because our society is definately losing its way, but try not to mistake that for Godliness, which has become synonymous with narrow-mindedness and oppressive behavior for quite a while now.

    I find religion on a whole is becoming less topical. More people see sense in freedom to think whatever they like, without boundaries from their parents - to be able to believe in their own mind what is right. I met a women recently who's Mother disowned her because she didn't wear that vial item that women must wear - she told me that while she wanted to speak with her Mother, she is happy that she's found freedom here in England and equal opportunity.

    I find that religion can stop people from becoming themselves. It can stop happiness, it can stop progress. The things we idolise and the things we want to do are sometimes stopped because we're blocked by religious views.

    This is why I'm an atheist, I'm free to do whatever I like, I'm free to love; to share; to laugh; to walk; to dance and to sing and to be myself whenever I like. I believe everyone in this world should have that freedom - and I believe the only thing that stops us is religion and the belief we must sacrifice freedom for God or a higher-order.

    Christ never came to this earth to form religions but relationship.  What religions did, it becomes rules and regulations. Rigid and rituals. Religions trying to reach out toGod whatever it can. Relationship...is personal life relationship-connection. Christianity has become somewhat religious like any other groups.  What about discipleship. Not everyone wants or willing to be disciple.  Learner and not only follower of Jesus.  What we are seeing now.. is the decaying of morals and values in the societies.

    i think it's crazy that religion exists along with the belief in ghosts, demons etc. i can't understand why people can't just realize that we are here, we decide our own lives and that when we die, it's over. as for morals, they have never changed. read about history and you will see that people were a lot more messed up hundreds of years ago then they are now.it's funny how people talk about the love of god right after an earthquake or a volcano or such kills a few thousand people. brainwashing to the max.

    Is God more capable of disappearing than human beings? If anyone is disappearing, I don't think it's God, whomever you concieve God to be. God doesn't need any help from us either, if God is God. I believe he simply wants to share the gift of aliveness with us. If anybody has disappeared, it is we who have "dropped the ball."

    They are not disappearing. They are polarizing! Us against them.

    And that's a big part of the problem. So many Christians are "judging."

    And that's all about ego! The equal-opportunity source of all evil.

    Ego is the self we need to let die before we can have everlasting life, but so many still cling to their egos. The Pharisees did, despite Christ's warnings.

    We need to be about love and compassion in these final days before judgement.

    Already the forces of evil are gathering. We've had the rebirth of Israel. We've had the great star (nuclear furnace) of Wormwood ("Chernobyl" in Ukrainian). And we've had the birth of the beasts--Al Qaeda and the Western Bankers who financed them. The freedoms of America are being squeezed to death and many welcome the enslavement as "necessary" to our security. The Patriot Act, TSA were only the beginning. Now Congress is threatening to clamp down on free speech (the Internet). Soon, the Rockefellers may implement personal microchips for ID and commerce (remember Revelation and the "mark of the beast?").

    Morals are not disappearing. The lack of morals is merely coming into the open and creating a rift in society.

    We should not be part of the problem by joining in one side versus the other. Hold steady to God's morals, love all of our brothers and sisters, but love God above all else.
