A time to weep

17 Jun

After reading the news over the past 30 days, I’ve come to the conclusion it is time to weep. We should weep for a culture where …

  • People live secret lives
  • We think that violence is the answer to our problems
  • Individuals kill others because they are different or hold different values
  • Evil appears to be winning
  • Politicians use tragedies to push political agendas
  • Politicians are more concerned about assigning blame than finding solutions and fixing problems
  • Political candidates are more focused on accusing the opposing candidate of wrongdoing than they are on stating what they truly believe
  • Animal life is valued higher than human life (On May 31, Ed Stetzer tweeted “In 5 days: 700 refugees drowned off Greece, 9000 babies were aborted in U.S., 68 were shot in Chicago … and a gorilla dominated the news)
  • Tolerance is elevated to the highest virtue, and if you disagree with my statement, you must be a “hater” because you are obviously intolerant
  • Christ followers are marginalized because we believe that the Bible speaks to the issue of right and wrong and not everything should be tolerated
  • We are so focused on vilifying religion that we miss when a company with conservative values like Chik-Fil-A goes out of their way to demonstrate compassion to those serving the victims of the recent shooting in Orlando
  • We have become so desensitized to violence and cynical about politicians that we no longer recognize when it is time to weep

    What you say is true, unfortunately. It appears our society is rejecting the truth and and doing what pleases them. As discouraged as I sometimes get watching world events, I have to remember God is in control.
