Have you looked around you lately? People are dead inside. It's written on their faces. I went to Wal-Mart today to get some groceries. And I think the thing that struck me the most about my Wal-Mart adventure was people's complete disregard for others and lack of love or respect for themselves.
We live in a country whose people have lost hope, lost faith, lost themselves. How much longer do you think these peaceful protests, such as "The Tea Party" protest conducted this Fourth of July, will continue to be peaceful? A wise man (my pastor) once said violent movements accomplish nothing good and they do not last. He cited the Third Reich and Osama Bin Laden. Obviously these examples were failed attempts at radical change. Men like Dr. Martin Luther King (and Jesus Christ) brought a peaceful movement which lives in us to this day. There is power in the words of God. Much more power in words of peace, than words of fear and hate.
Here is my warning to those who are Christian: STOCK UP on food and water. I believe there is a day quickly coming when the same people who are dead inside will be looting the stores and rioting in the streets on a national scale. The scary part is not that they will be killing each other, but that the vast majority of our troops are overseas fighting for people in other countries. When this violent movement starts, our country will turn into the kind of country we seem to like to invade and "help".
Too bad there aren't enough police or soldiers to stop a full-scale hostile takeover of our country.
We are a powder keg and the current economic crisis is the torch inching ever closer to the wick. I hope you are paying attention, because Jesus Christ isn't the only one who is going to come as a thief in the night. Satan's work is written all over the current status of the world. Christians are acting like the proverbial frog in the pot of boiling water. Guess what? The fire is lit.
