How many times have you heard stories about attacks on religion? It seems like they are getting more frequent these days. And because of what’s been going on some people believe we’re on a path that could lead to the end of the world as we know it.
Those people include author Jeff Kinley who told KTRH we've abandoned God just like we did before the Great Flood of Noah's time.
"Our culture mirrors that. We’ve written God out of his own creation story,” Kinley told KTRH. “I think anyone can see God is not really a big deal today.”
And how have we distanced ourselves from God? Kinley says there are many ways that include violence, abortion and changing views on gay marriage.
“Acceptance of same sex marriage is one way. We’re just seeing unrestrained morality in the world at whole,” Kinley explained.
Kinley doesn't think we're doomed yet, but that we should embrace religion more than we currently are.
Not every preacher sees it the same way, though. James McAbee, ‘The Pistol Packin’ Pastor’ of the Lighthouse Worship Center in Beaumont told KTRH he's not on board with what Kinley is saying.
“That’s why you see churches empty. People don’t like views pushed in their face,” McAbee said.
McAbee prefers to look at the positive instead of focusing on the negative.
PODCAST: Houston's Morning News with Matt Patrick welcomes "As it was in the days of Noah" author Jeff Kinley, to discuss the things that were taking place in the times of Noah and the things that are taking place today in comparison. Hear it here first:
“I think people are becoming more spiritual. There are always people that are going to be godless. There were godless people thirty years ago and there are godless people today,” McAbee explained.
And McAbee says it’s never too late for anyone to embrace religion, no matter who you are and what you are.
"My mother was a lesbian. I prayed with her the night before she died and she wanted God to forgive her for every sin in her life.
McAbee says he wasn't scarred by the fact that he was raised by two women.
