Here are some images that reveal the decline and decay we experience in our culture.
Once GOD has been diminished and the true image of God lost...
God has become trivialized, diminished, reduced, domesticated, tamed, boxed in, anemic and rather boring.
With this diminishment of GOD, then we experience a decay of TRUTH. For God is truth, true truth, the source of all truth and without God, truth cannot reamain. We exchange the truths that would provide the norms for human life for the prevailing lies that are convenient.
