Tonight, I am in charge of the lesson for the Family Home Evening that Nick and I do on a weekly basis. Normally, we would hold it on Tuesday nights. But, because he was out of town that day, we are holding it tonight.
In preparing my lesson on Lehi's Dream, I was able to read a really great talk given by Boyd K. Packer. He spoke of his days as a youth in the military. He spoke of how other scoffed at him because of his beliefs and standards. That was in the early 1950's! He knows how different things are now, and how filthy life has become.
Just yesterday, a woman came into MVC (my job) and was speaking offhandedly to another customer. The man she was speaking to asked,
"How's married life?"
To that she responded,
"Oh, about the same."
WHAT?!!?!!?! Why is that okay? Why has society become so diluded that it is now normal for couples to live together prior to marriage? Why is it okay for couples to live together when marriage hasn't even been discussed? Why is pre-marital sex recreational? Something is wrong here.
