Tonight I heard via telephone about some people close to me - one stealing and nearly bragging about it - another one breaking and entering, stealing, spending 2 weeks in jail, and then getting off practically Scot-free with nothing more than a hand slap. And let's not mention that child predator who seems to get away with it after only 10 months in jail and now he frequents the public library visiting and getting to know young teen girls and NOBODY stops him.
Then, tonight on the local news they flash a picture of a son of the people we bought our house from - he's been arrested for making bombs! They caught him with a car load of homemade bombs of all sorts. The police had to shut down a section of the road and detonate the bombs! This family lives maybe a mile down the road from us. I just talked to his mother at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and she bragged to me how this boy is going to be a nuclear physicist. Hm.
God must be grieved, as I know He was the moment Adam and Eve fell. Please pray for these people and for the moral health of our nation.
"But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel; indeed he made his son pass through the fire, according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had cast out from before the children of Israel." 2 Kings 16:3 (NKJV)
"And they caused their sons and daughters to pass through the fire, practiced witchcraft and soothsaying, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him to anger." 2 Kings 17:17 (NKJV)
