John UK wrote: For example, did you know that in the 50's and 60's it was quite normal for every house to leave their doors unlocked all day long? Why? Because "religion" had an upper hand, and most children attended a Sunday School, which "affected" them for the good. I'm not talking here about salvation, but real life in this world.
When I worked in Saudi Arabia John, we could drive into town and leave the car unlocked and it was still there when we got back! So is Islam the answer for society and its crime stats? What would happen to the thief if he stole the car was that he'd get his hand cut off so 'threat' is effective??
In Britain/Europe today of course many are saying that there is no justice, murderers, thieves, rapists, paedophiles all 'get away' with their crimes in short sentences. So do we need to bring back hanging and increase the sentences of others to unlock our houses again?
Or is there another reason for the current decline in moral standards and justice? "The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted" Psalm 12.
Sin is its own reward! Psalm 94:23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.
