“Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?”
At the time of this writing, President Biden and other G7 Leaders are on a visit to the Hiroshima Memorial Museum, which memorializes the estimated 140,000 people who died in the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan. They laid wreaths and planted a tree.
It’s a good thing to remember this unforgettable event and to show concern for those who lost their lives due to the struggles between nations that they were not able to resolve through peaceful negotiations. But I have a question: How does it make any sense that these leaders are not concerned of the millions upon millions that get aborted every year in this present-day world. According to the abortion counter website there have been 1.695 billion unborn babies aborted since 1980 that this counter has been keeping track somewhat, because this number does not take into account the chemically aborted only the surgical ones. You can rest assured that number is even much higher to the tune of nearly one-third of the entire world population.
Where is the concern for this horrific practice that supersedes the loss of lives of many wars combined throughout history? Nothing can be done about the lives lost in the past but what about the ones that will be slaughtered today in the present and in the future that they could save? Do they care? Do they lose sleep over those precious lives upon which a death penalty has already been pronounced on them before they are even conceived?
The prevention of abortion is only one of the horrific issues plaguing our world today that something could be done about. What about the drug trafficking that some of those very same leaders are profiting from? What about the human trafficking that goes hand in hand with drugs that knows no border boundaries? Are they united in taking serious measures in stopping these atrocities or do their personal pockets and the pockets of their nations stand too much to lose?
World leaders can pontificate and “perform” antics of pretending concern and compassion but what is really going on with their approval of this merciless massacre that is turning our world into such an agonizing place as it writhes in moral and spiritual pain?
There are rumors that we may be on the verge of WW III which would mean devastation of lives and property the likes of which the world has never witnessed on such a large scale due to nuclear weapons of mass destruction.
What are we waiting for to make this world a better place? Does morality matter? You better believe it does. Just read the first chapter of Romans and you will clearly understand the immoral and corrupt times we are living with unspeakable depravity.
All because we want to set ourselves apart from the will of God and nature and bend him to our will.
Why have we not yet learned from God’s Word and history what happens to the people who have tried that before? Why do we continue to rage and plot in vain against God and his will and design for all things that truly matter.
Let’s get it through our thick and sinful minds that fighting and resisting God’s order in the universe is a losing battle. What the world truly needs is a moral revolution back to God and unchanging his principles for right living, bottom line!
A united fight against godlessness must prevail if we are going to right this earthly ship. Our real battle is toward complacency thinking that time will heal all of these problems. If we do not heed these warnings, we have no one to blame but ourselves for the disastrous outcome.
COEXISTANCE is an impossible task due to the diversity of worldviews in regards to morality. We must unite under God’s worldview for all of us if we hope to see better times. God will not change his mind on what his principles and masterplan have already decided. Jesus is King!
“He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.
Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying,
‘As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.’”
