The Darkness

“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.” {John 3:19-20}
Who could deny that we are living in an ever darkening society?
I am talking about America.
I am not talking about Stalin’s Russia or Hitler’s Germany.
I am not talking about the heathen in the jungles.
I am talking about the land in which we live.
A land that was once prosperous and safe.
40 years ago no one thought about school shootings
No one worried about Islamic terrorists.
No one thought about mall or theatre shootings.
Sexual predators weren’t a topic of conversation.
Children could walk to school and a public school was never thought of as a dangerous place{at least not physically dangerous}.
Only a fool or an idiot would deny that America has become a darker place to live.
It is not the guns.
It is not the lack of security.
It is not the need of new laws.
How many laws do you imagine a mass murderer is already breaking?
Would a few more laws stop a killer?
How about a few more signs?
imagesHow many “GUN FREE ZONE” signs do these guys walk past before they kill a bunch of innocent people and then themselves?
No, these are only stopgaps.
Many would agree with what I have said thus far but not with what I am about to say.
We are reaping {as a nation} what we have sown. We have sown to the wind and now we are reaping the whirlwind.
We have shaken our fist in the face of the God of Heaven.
We have kicked Him out of our schools, our government and many of our churches.
We have allowed our young peoples minds to be filled with sex and violence and perversion.
Our nation has glorified violence in its movies, music and video games. When they catch a sexual predator it is no surprise that his mind has been filled with pornography.
These mass murderers don’t just wake up one day and decide to go shoot up a school or a mall. The idea has been planted in their mind by someone or something.
The old adage is still true…Garbage In …Garbage Out!
Is there an answer? Is there hope?
I can give you a personal answer.
I can give you a personal hope.
The Apostle Paul said that Jesus Christ had sent him “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”
That is what He has sent every true believer to do.
