“But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8)
I recently heard on my car radio an advertisement for a DNA home testing kit. Apparently, the kit is designed to determine whether a child is yours or someone else’s. All you have to do is swipe a swab inside your mouth and another inside the child’s, send the swabs off for testing, and wait for the results to arrive in the mail.
Now that almost half of all births in the U.S. are illegitimate and many pregnant women are promiscuous, I suppose we’re reduced to using DNA kits and cotton swabs to identify the fathers of children. What a sad and sorry testimony to the degeneracy of our times. Don’t all children deserve something better than this?
It used to be that the vast majority of children in America were conceived as a result of their parents’ love and welcomed into this world by a doting mom and dad. Today, however, many children are conceived by relative strangers during a momentary sexual tryst. Furthermore, if their moms don’t opt to abort them, their fathers won’t claim them unless forced to do so by the incontrovertible evidence found on cotton swabs.
And we wonder what went wrong with the younger generation.
