de·based diˈbāst/ adjective

“And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.” Romans 1:28

1.) reduced in quality or value.

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.“

The mind that recognizes as self evident the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God is a sound mind. The mind that rejects as self evident the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God is a debased mind.

Are we a Sound or Debased society?

Only a spiritual revival can restore soundness of mind, body and soul to a people who’ve become so corrupted. Pray that God, in His mercy, will take the remnant of praying people, humble us, hear our prayers and heal our land. Like a thief who can only know the severity of his behavior when brought to justice and sentenced in proportion to his crime, so only a merciful God can reveal how destructive our society has become in being unmoored from the essentials of liberty; those self-evident truths for which our founding, godly, virtuous founders pledged 
their lives, fortunes and sacred honor. May God raise up leaders of that calibre in our day while restoring a sound mind to We The People!
