The dangers of the "Utopian" society

As a former college student at a liberal arts college, we were encouraged to read a book entitled "Utopia" by Thomas More. The book may seem innocent at first glance...but it is in-fact very ungodly book if compared to scriptures.

The current state of the United States happens to be that of a liberal "utopian" and ungodly society except for a few faithful Christians here and there

The following things are encouraged in Thomas More's utopian society......"Other significant innovations of Utopia include: a welfare state with free hospitals [OBAMA and his free health care system] , euthanasia permissible by the state [abortions and other "legal" human removal methods], priests being allowed to marry, divorce permitted, premarital sex punished by a lifetime of enforced celibacy and adultery being punished by enslavement [the current healthcare bill includes punishment/jail-time for teenagers caught in premarital relations]. Meals are taken in community dining halls and the job of feeding the population is given to a different household in turn.[many of our super-size farms are currently governed by GMO engineered crops and animals] " More information about this book can be found here.

Thomas Moore was a catholic so his ideas stemmed from Catholicism. It we compare Thomas Moore's ideas of a utopian society it is very apparent that we are definitely living in the last days.

2Ti 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous [notice howmany folks drive large SUV's, have two children that attend day care of various sorts and live in enormous houses these days], boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Ti 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures [many seek their fill at the movie theater and the bars] more than lovers of God;
2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Ti 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2Ti 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
2Ti 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
2Ti 3:9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
2Ti 3:10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
2Ti 3:11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
2Ti 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
2Ti 3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
2Ti 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Lets continue to evaluate the condition of our lives according to the scriptures and not according to man's wisdom.
