How Civilized Are We?

From one point of view we are living in an age that is civilized in that many nations are technically advanced and enjoy a reasonably ordered stage of cultural development. Where Christianity predominates, legislation provides a high degree of moral imperatives, and there is police protection. Such civilization represents many centuries of refinement of thought, worship, knowledge, manners, and taste. So immense is this subject that it is difficult even to scan the amazing achievements of the Christian community.

Modern research and the examination of contemporary aboriginal tribal customs show that men originally lived much as animals do, without clothing or houses and having to search daily for food. They were cruel and vengeful. Their morals were undeveloped and their sex relations promiscuous. The real man, made in God's likeness as revealed by the Scriptures, was practically unrepresented.
