Leafing through the news of the day, I happened upon an article which highlights some of what I was trying to say in regards to men shaking their fists at God.
Apparently a man in Minnesota vandalized six churches because ‘he was mad at God.’ From breaking doors, to throwing rocks through stained glass windows, this thirty year old man exhibited his anger at God by resorting to violent outbursts.
Now imagine a million, five million, ten million, or twenty million people angry at God, lashing out in similar fashion as this lone individual.
Another story that caught my eye, not so much for its gruesomeness although it is plenty gruesome, but more for the reaction people are having to it, is a fourteen year old in Florida who choked her newborn baby boy to death after prying him out with a pair of scissors, then put him in a shoebox.
People are all aflutter, disbelieving of the fact that this could happen here.
Really you can’t believe it could happen here? What did you expect when we’ve sexualized everything from hamburgers to automobiles, then talked ourselves into believing a human life is worth no more than a metal coat hanger and a hefty bag?
This is the society we the children of God have created by our silence, and the society the world has created by its surrender to lawlessness and hedonism. Yep, you’ve come a long way, baby.
Tomorrow we continue our series on prayer, and new audio will be up on the hand of help website as well.
With love in Christ,
