What do you think about the dark side of our society? Are you one of those who is concerned about our future?
Not to be overly negative, but do you see much of the following from the news media: rampant evil, people grabbing and grasping at everything to find happiness, vicious backstabbing, envy, killing, bickering, cheating?
How about people who are mean-spirited, venomous people who bash God? What about bullies, loudmouthed windbags who invent new ways to wreck lives?
What about people who leave morals and abandon respect for their parents so they can get, and go, their own way? Consider those who act stupidly, not using their intelligence. Those who are slimy and cruel. What about those who ignore God, even when they know better? Is it like they are spitting in God’s face? But they don’t care. In fact, they flaunt their lifestyle. And some of these people are rewarded by society, with the money they make.
Does any of this resemble those here and there in our society? If so, you should know that I just followed—very closely—what the Apostle Paul said about those in the Roman Empire: Romans 1:28-32.
And, of course, you know what happened: the fall of Rome, recorded in history books.
What happened? Paul says, “Since they didn’t bother to acknowledge God, God quit bothering them and let them run loose” (Romans 1:18). If that doesn’t scare the hell (literally) out of you, you need to check your pulse. Because that’s when God allows people to scare the hell out of society—literally. Are you listening? What is God saying to you? What are you going to do about it?
