Dishonored and Defiled
How Hebrews 13:4 Explains the Degradation of America
Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge (Hebrews 13:4).
What happens to a society that dishonors the very institution upon which it is built? What becomes of a people who defile the natural and holy function that is necessary for life and turn it into an unholy act of rebellion against the Creator? The answers to these questions are unfolding right now in America as a providential judgment descends upon the nation.
In a single verse, Hebrews 13:4, the Bible predicts the outcome of America’s so-called “sexual revolution” and prescribes the remedy that can lead to the nation’s moral recovery. Dishonored and Defiled presents a careful exposition of this verse and its related passages of Scripture as well as a review of relative history to explain the current state of degradation that has beset America and the Western world. It also looks with hope at the nation’s opportunity to restore honor to marriage and return the “bed” to its rightful place of holiness. Will America take this opportunity before it is too late?
