Have you noticed how crazy it seems to be getting?
Wars, shootings, race baiting?
Why is there so much hate?
Well, I will give you my simple answer, and then explain a little more.
Simple answer, we have turned away from God. We have been seduced by the promises or the progressive agenda, and we have turned away from God.
Let me lay out my logic.
“God is Love.” The First Letter of John, New Testament.
By turning to those things which are not God, and not love, we have increased our natural stress level.
It is like running versus walking. We are made to walk better and further than we are made to run, so when we run, our resting heart rate goes up.
Unlike exercise, we do not get good benefits from following desires which lead US away from God.
And as our stress rate goes up, people get more excited. We argue more, we cut other people off in traffic more.
We think the rules are for other people, not for ME!
And as all of that stress goes up and up, things begin to simmer, then another problem comes into play.
God removes his hand of protection. In the Old Testament God told US, “If my people will turn from their evil ways and humble themselves and pray, then I will heal their land.”
So, everyone is more excited, and excitable. But, we also have a lower level of protection from God.
Then things begin to move from simmering to boiling.
People move from angry to boiling mad.
All of this excitement, stress, anger, and hatred then unsettles those with mental illness and spiritual oppression.
And some of them boil over.
We have removed the natural inhibitions. Replaced a God given balance with an unnatural imbalance. And as some individuals try to live like this, they come ‘unglued.’
I truly believe this. As you have read my blog, I pray you have noticed this recurring theme about God, His love, His forgiveness, and our responsibility to Him and to each other.
This time, In Jesus’ Name,
