Bizarre? Maybe not

June 6, 2012

It’s been a bizarre couple of weeks, with stories in the news about the Cannibal Zombie in the Miami area, a gunman opening fire on shoppers in the Eaton’s centre in Toronto, body parts being mailed to the Prime Minister and yet another murder here in Halifax.  It leaves people shaking their heads and asking, “What is the world coming to?”
But the world isn’t coming to any place that it hasn’t already been.  You only need to study history, recent and ancient, to discover the depravity of mankind and to see that mankind has never been able to change on their own.  We talk about changing people by changing society but that is only putting a coat of whitewash on the problem.  The problem is sin, the problem is people’s disconnect with their Creator.  The problem in AD 2012 is the same as the problem was in 1012 BC in the book of Judges, and that is that everyone is doing what is right in their own eyes.  Our society needs to discover the solution isn’t to ignore God and His teachings, it needs to embrace God and His teachings.  Which is why Jesus told us the greatest command is to love God and to love others.     Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
