Two weeks ago I took the opportunity to talk a little bit about the issues that our world and our country faces today, and I'm going to do that again this morning. And then I'm going to start a book. I'm not comfortable not teaching a book of the Bible, so we'll continue to do some Christ in the Old Testament on Sunday nights, but everybody's been kind of pushing me in the direction of "You need to do the gospel of John." Everybody loves the teaching concerning our Lord Jesus Christ. I did John in 1970, so I need to do it right; I need to get another shot at it. So we'll do that.

But starting a couple of weeks ago we took a look at the condition our country is in, our world is in--and I'm not trying to be political, I'm trying to help you understand what you're seeing in your world from a biblical perspective. And that's my responsibility before God.

We looked at Romans 1, and I want to take you back to Romans 1 because I want you to understand what is really the driving problem behind the collapse of our world. And it can be identified. I've heard a lot of political speeches in my life. No one should be sentenced to hearing very many, and I have certainly had to endure more than I would like. I've heard them in the recent years because of media, more frequently than ever. And I have never, I have never heard one world leader or one American politician state the real problem in this country and in this world--never, not even close. I assume that they don't know it or that they're afraid to say it. So I'm going to tell you what the problem is today--the problem with this country, the problem with the rest of the world, the problem with every nation, every leader, every ruler, every counsel, every committee, every assembly, every group that comes together. It's one problem: Romans 1, verse 28. "They didn't see fit to acknowledge God any longer." That's it; that's it....
