Majority of Americans See Morality Declining

by on


This is Ken Ham, co-author of the new book A Flood of Evidence, on Noah’s Flood.


According to a recent survey, 81% of Americans “see declining morality in society.” But watching morality decline means there is a standard from which it is declining.

But if you don’t have a biblical worldview, there’s no standard for morality. You see, you may believe something’s wrong, but why is it wrong? Your opinion? The opinions of the majority, or government? But if arbitrary opinion is the standard, then you can’t tell me what I am doing is wrong. Ultimately, then, no one can make moral judgments about anything.

But God’s Word gives us that ultimate standard for morality. God is our Creator and Judge, so only he has the authority to set the rules.
