26And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
28Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
There is a developing story of considerable importance at Penn State University. In response to the latest revelations of child sexual abuse by former Assistant Coach Jerry Sandusky, the university has just fired Joe Paterno the institution's Football Team's Coach. Jerry Sandusky was arrested on November 4, 2011 and charged with several counts of child molestation; Which has begun an unraveling process that has blown the lid off an apparent 'ugly little secret' at Penn State. Supposedly, a few people on the athletics staff knew about inappropriate behavior between Sandusky and young boys (from a charity he had founded) on the premises; Today it was revealed that several 'adults' knew about the deviant behavior and did nothing. Also, parents had previously reported the molestations and the authorities involved failed to prosecute the accused pedophile predator. All these obscene allegations remind me of the times surrounding Lot's final days in Sodom and Gomorrah.
But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. -Luke 21:23.
Folks, it's not safe to raise children anymore! Cases like this make it perfectly clear.
This is just a peek into the depravity that goes on during the last days of man's existence on earth. I am sure that many more shameful details will surface as this investigation proceeds. But, it was foreseen by the Lord Jesus Christ almost two thousand years ago. Jesus warned us of how degenerate and ruthless men would become; How they would pervert the sexual act, how this would increase in scale, and the world would finally resemble the wickedly decadent cities of Sodom and Gomorrah during Lot's lifetime. This is where we are at this point in history.
Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal
The Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal involved allegations in 2011 against former Pennsylvania State University football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and allegations of a university cover-up of those incidents. Sandusky, a longtime defensive coordinator under head coach Joe Paterno, retired in 1999 but retained access to Penn State's athletic facilities. A 2011 grand jury investigation reported that Mike McQueary, then a graduate assistant, told Paterno in 2002 that he had seen Sandusky performing a sex act on a 10-year-old boy in Penn State football's shower facilities. Paterno then reported the allegations to Penn State athletic director Tim Curley. In November 2011, Sandusky was arrested on 40 counts of molesting eight young boys over a 15-year period. In addition, Curley and university Senior Vice President Gary Schultz resigned after being charged with failing to report the incident to police and lying to a grand jury regarding what they knew about the incident. Paterno and University President Graham Spanier were not charged, but both received criticism for their handling of the allegations. On November 9, Paterno announced he would retire at the end of the season, but hours later, Paterno and Spanier were formally removed from their positions by the Penn State Board of Trustees.
