dc.description.abstract The impact of moral degeneration is currently being felt around the globe. It is currently gripping all people across the spectrum of all cultures on the globe. Few members of these cultures can claim to be living a life free from stress caused by this kind of evil that is eating up the moral fibre of our society. However, given the fact that moral decay showed up shortly after God had created the earth from Chaos to Cosmos as the holy bible confirms this, we have to live with hope that this situation can be rectified in the near future. Who will, and how this will be done is going to be the focus of this paper's discussion. The first part of this paper will focus on how God or the supernatural being developed and struggled with the human beings whom he had given special favours and they just failed to honour them due to submitting to Immoral behaviour he had warned them against. Further, the argument that this has now become like a pattern in human history will be emphasized to show that the forgiving God can still provide us with means to rectify immorality of this century. The third part will be examining current trends that encourage serious moral degeneration of the 21st century. Further I will examine whether today we are hoping for God's mercy by embracing our extrasensory perceptions and accepting them to help us venture deeply in spiritual experiences that face us daily. For instance the natural disasters point to a likelihood of renewing the face of the earth once again as he did in the past. Since moral decay began as a gender related issue with Eve during creation, I will also apply that aspect of females as the people whocan try to stop what they started. And that the spirituality of Women that leads them into counter-cultural type of life helps them to see other dimensions of concern in life better than their counterparts, the males. This is to elaborate on the fact that they are diff erent from men in all aspects of life and the way they experience the supernatural spirit can make them better people to make the difference in society. The conclusion will underscore the centrality of the Holy Spirit's work among women from the past years to this new millennium and the likely results of their eff ort among the entire human race. en_US
