A decade ago, a famous NBA player, frustrated by the news media, blurted out “I'm a 90's N**!!#*!!.” (racial epithet) This NBA player should have handled that situation better, but he was saying that he lives life according to the times. When one is hipped to the times, he is probably doing wrong because the ways of men aren’t the ways of God (Isaiah 55:8-9).
In the 90's there was ignorance and apathy toward God. Schools accepted evolution over creationism and encouraged sex by providing condoms to students (Genesis 1:1). Homosexuality rose to a higher level and 20-year-old virgins were considered weird (1 Corinthians 6:18). Parents were told not to discipline their children (Proverbs 29:15). Making money and material things were top priority (Mark 9:36-37). Women laughed at and spoke out against the Bible command to submit to their husbands’ loving-wise rule (Ephesians 5:23). Profane movie stars, athletes, musicians, etc, were considered role models, and some said a good economy was more important than Presidential character (Proverbs 14:34; Psalm 33:12; Prov. 4:10-27).
So to be a 90’s person was to be a follower of these things. However, the word of God will last longer than the Earth (Matthew 24:35). That being true, it is good enough to govern men in any century. So let us be God-fearing people and not people of the times (Acts 10:34-35).
Hope to hear from you are see you at the services.
