People should be ashamed of how shame-less they are. Ellen Goodman of The Boston Globe has recently published an article on the absence of shame in America. The fuel for this article comes from The New York Post’s recent hiring of a notorious prostitute as a financial analyst. In light of this, Ellen Goodman writes her article asking a fair question: where has shame gone in society? As Dr. Mohler notes on today’s program, the deterioration of the doctrine of sin has led to a shameless society. No sin, no shame. As shame disappears from culture, so does any sense of moral consciousness.

Whatever Happened to Shame?
Words From the Fire: Hearing the Voice of God in the 10 Commandments
If God has spoken, then the highest human aspiration must be to hear what the Creator has said. God has indeed spoken, through the Ten Commandments, and Al Mohler explores this revelation of God and the implications for His people. The promise is to hear, to obey, and to live. These “Ten Words” tell us who God is and what His people should look like.
