Contrast this photo of the New York City skyline (lower Manhattan) during Easter 1956 with the photos I showed yesterday or with the photo of New York City (mid-town Manhattan) taken last week shown just below this one. The contrast shows you how much America has changed in the last sixty years.
By the way, I am not suggesting that America was godly in 1956. Rather, I’m just wanting to show the deterioration since then. Can you imagine a display of the cross of Christ showing up like this today? Thus we see that we can seek to please God or seek to please ourselves…but not both.
