Ps: I'm wondering why gay marriage etc trigger this for you, and not for example the 'persecution' in Russia, the earthquakes and storms, or the Korea-USA standoff?
Persecutions, earthquakes and storms have all been occurring throughout the ages. Intensity of these natural calamities increases in our time? I am not that sure. I would say it is due to global warming which is man-made.
Korea-USA standoff which will most likely leads to WW3. Nothing unusual about that. We have already seen two world wars.
It is the morality of this present world that has triggered the thought that we are in the last days. As for gay marriages, I am neither for or against it. Or maybe I would say I can't imagine a man marrying another man. This has nothing to do with biblical condemnation of homosexuality. It is just my own personal standpoint. Then there is the case of a gay couple suing a bakery for refusing to bake a cake for their wedding. They have the right to be gay. But the bakery shop owner also have his right to refuse to do things that his religious belief forbid. The gay couple should just simply walk away and find another shop willing to make the cake for them...
Now, the thing that I am very opposed to is raising kids genetically neutral. Instead of raising kids as him or her, they now raise kids as hens! I am so lucky that I was born 16 years earlier. Otherwise I will be raise up as a hen. My dad raised me up as a 'him' and taught me how to behave as a 'him'. I can still remember when I was 5 or 6 and was crying. My dad told me sternly "Boys don't cry!" At least I know that I am a boy and am expected to behave as a boy.
I am wondering how these "hen"s will behave when they grow older. Will the society has more effeminate males and masculine females????
Now, back to the question "Are we in the last days?". No. I don't think so. I have just recently read some articles on pompeii , an ancient roman city where they engaged in gross "sins" and immorality. Maybe what they were engaging then is much more immoral than our times....
