Dismayed – but not Surprised

So now, on some campuses, college room/dormitory options include “gender neutral” . What this means is a student can say that have no gender preference in the selection of a roommate – or they can select someone of the opposite sex. And these campuses accommodate them. Now don’t get me started on this one! What is most disturbing to me is that a couple of the colleges that reportedly allow such arrangements are, historically, church related. Don’t get me started on that either! Sure, some say that mature students can handle it (who’s to determine the ‘mature’ ones?), but I say – with Biblical support – that boys will be boys and girls will be girls. (OK – stop searching – you won’t find those words in the Bible per se – but its passages about human nature and sin make it pretty clear: “For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do- no, the evil I do not want to do, this I keep on doing.” (Rom. 7:19) And whatever happened to obedience to the verse “Abstain from all appearance of evil?” ( 1 Thess. 5:22 KJV) But I said I wasn’t going to get started! When I read the news report, I was dismayed – but not surprised. Ever since our society has decided that morality is an individual choice, we’ve been headed down a slippery slope. Perhaps we need to read again the times of the Kings and Judges in the Old Testament – it is there we see the cycle of history: that when everyone does what is right in his own eyes, there is chaos. I can’t say it any better.
