Who shows respect these days? Politicians? Celebrities? Not so much. Disrespect for those in authority is commonplace; and we regularly see angry reactions when people disagree with a decision.
What about the Bible? Is there any respect for God's Word? From the first century A.D. until around the end of the last century, the Bible had a prominent place in individual lives and in the surrounding culture. Now the Bible is portrayed in academics, the news, and film as a book of stories or myths, definitely not the Word of God.
