Evil Runs Rampant

Yes, evil is running rampant throughout the world; and the only thing that will stop it is a cure that is ignored and all but forbidden in the United States and nearly every other country worldwide! Just a few days ago a seventeen year old male deliberately shot and killed an 18 month old child in a stroller because the mother had no money to give the robber; a young thug who had no consideration for life at any age. Why? He was driven by selfishness, accustomed to the government giving him money so he didn’t have to work, was raised in a home with no positive male influence in the midst of a society that loudly proclaims infants and newborns have no right to life either in the womb or in the stroller. The public schools are simply indoctrination centers for the humanist, Godless, immoral teaching of atheistic, Marxist drivel! Why doesn’t somebody do something? Everybody thinks something is wrong, anybody could have but nobody protested when the courts said take prayer out of schools and God out of America.

 

For fear of losing their tax-exempt status, churches, with rare exception, fail to preach and teach against the advance of evil influence in our governmental legislative bodies, federal courts, and the increasing marginalization of the churches throughout America, just like what already has happened in Europe. Yes, I blame the finger that pulled the trigger, but I also cast blame on the failure to teach this young man the Ten Commandments that include, “You shall not murder,” the truth that actions have consequences and the absence in his life of the teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

You stop an evil man with a gun with a good man with a gun; you stop the evil teachings of godless humanism with the good teaching of the Word of God and you stop godless influence by proclaiming the Biblical message without fear of retribution throughout our society. Men and women will not admit the presence of evil because that means they must recognize the presence of God, the opposite of evil, and His Commandments. Every Believer in Jesus Christ must put on the whole armor of God, take up the sword of the Spirit and declare war on evil wherever it raises its ugly, serpentine head. Every Gospel-preaching Church must declare and proclaim God’s Word boldly or we will all be guilty of being lukewarm and unfit for God’s blessing!

 

How do you stop evil? By fearlessly preaching and teaching the good news of God’s Holy Word!

Mary, thanks for the post.  I would agree with the overall premise of your of your post... but would challenge or ask for
 
Marty >> Just a few days ago a seventeen year old male deliberately shot and killed an 18 month old child in a stroller because the mother had no money to give the robber;
 
Can you provide details to identify the case?  It sounds very familiar to the De'Marquise Elkins case in Georgia; but that happened back in 2013.  I remember it being about the time of the Zimmeman/Marin case and remember the black racism involved in investigating and trying the case.
 
Marty >> a young thug who had no consideration for life at any age.
 
This obviously is true... and I believe this is an epidemic probably for the reasons you give.  But are you sure they apply to this young man or is this conjecture?  Do you know for a fact that his father was absent or that his family was on welfare for example? 
 
I will concede that the government (mostly federal) and society have indeed created an environment that fosters dependency, secular indoctrination, disrespect for life, and selfishness.
 
Marty >> Why doesn’t somebody do something? Everybody thinks something is wrong, anybody could have but nobody protested when the courts said take prayer out of schools and God out of America.
 
I would have to disagree factually with this statement.  There were plenty of people who protested... we just lost.
 
There will always be those who attack the Judeo-Christian foundation of America with the intention of reinventing her into a secular, collective utopia.  Disinformation has always been their tool of choice and they have had a lot of success.
 
As for schools, I've never seen them as a means to impart moral fortitude.  If that foundation is not developed at the home, the school has little chance of instilling it.  And THAT is really the problem; the homes, the parents (if they are there) aren't doing the most important job they have in regard to their children.  You can look at the mother of De'Marquise Elkins (in the example I gave) and see why the son was an amoral monster.
 
The schools at best can foster an environment (some via freedom of religious expression) to reinforce the moral foundation coming from the home.
 
Marty >> For fear of losing their tax-exempt status, churches, with rare exception, fail to preach and teach against the advance of evil influence in our governmental legislative bodies, federal courts, and the increasing marginalization of the churches throughout America, just like what already has happened in Europe.
 
I don't see this; at least for the reason you give (fear of losing tax-exempt status).
 
But yes, churches should lead the way in explaining the degradation of society and the role of government in that decline.  Moving America to the same state of Europe is indeed a goal of the secular socialist.  Though weakened, we are still a thorn in their sides.  Freedom and liberty must give way to the collective suclarism.
 
Marty >> Yes, I blame the finger that pulled the trigger, but I also cast blame on the failure to teach this young man the Ten Commandments that include, “You shall not murder,” the truth that actions have consequences and the absence in his life of the teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
 
But, I'm back to the responsibility for teaching this young man these things fall on the family, on the parents.  If it's not done by them, it's not likely to happen.  The problem is that government has destroyed the family structure; and the church has failed in answering that calamity.
 
Thanks for the post.

Marty Koval, are you then proposing that it be mandatory that a given Christian religion be taught in schools?  If so, which religion?  Catholic or Protestant?  
 
I tend to agree with you, BTW, but I personally would never endorse this because it would violate the 1st Amendment which I hold involatile.

Good article Marty, I concur.  However, most don't want the good news until they understand the bad news about their current wretched state, which is why Jonathan Edward's, "Sinners in the hands of an angry God" was such a classic.

Protestant, same as our 204 Founders, save 2, were.

Wow, that's excellent!!   And the First Amendment is not violated by teaching the Bible in schools.  The First Amendment was created by and for virtuous and God-Fearing people, who can only become that way by being taught the Bible.  The notable Founder, Dr. Benjamin Rush, wrote an entire essay on why the Bible needs to be in schools.   Every last bad consequence he gave for removing the Bible from schools, has come to pass.  Thank you for that, I'll do my next article on 'Why the Bible should be taught in schools'.

I do not have the details on this child that was murdered. I heard this on a radio talk show a few days ago.
 
What Churches May Do:
Conduct non-partisan voter registration drives. Distribute non-partisan voter education materials, such as Christian Coalition Voter Guides and scorecards, Right to Life and Family Council Voter Guides.
Host candidate or issue forums where all viable candidates are invited and allowed to speak. Allow candidates and elected officials to speak at church services. Educate members about pending legislation.
Lobby for legislation and spend no more than an insubstantial amount of their budget (five percent is safe) on direct lobbying activities.
 
Speak about the moral issues in the Bible as regards to marriage, homosexual behavior, sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, fits of anger, dissensions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, etc. people must consider these Biblical teachings when they vote for candidates.
 
What Churches May Not Do:
Endorse candidates directly or indirectly from the pulpit on behalf of the church. Contribute funds or services (such as mailing lists or office equipment) directly to candidates or political committees.
 
Distribute materials that clearly favor any one candidate or political party. Pay fees for partisan political events from church funds. Allow candidates to solicit funds while speaking in church. Set up a political committee that would contribute funds to political candidates.
 
What Pastors May Do:
Endorse candidates in their capacity as private citizens – A pastor does not lose his right to free speech because he is an employee of a church. Participate fully in political committees that are independent of the church. Lobby for legislation in their private capacity.
 
What Pastors May Not Do:
Endorse candidates directly or indirectly from the pulpit on behalf of the church
 
Prior to prayer (1962), Bible (1963) and the 10 commandments (1980) being removed from the public schools, I remember test questions and book information that talked Prayer, Bible and 10 commandments.
 
When these moral pillars were removed, school deaths from guns sky rocketed, which I showed in a posting in November.

I am not proposing that any particular religion be taught in the public schools. When the public schools did allow prayer, the Bible and the Ten Commandments in the schools, the morality of school age students was far better than it is today. There are many reasons for this degeneration in morality, which I explain in my November posting on historical school gun deaths.
 
Moral teaching of children is the responsibility of parents', unfortunately many children are not taught this by their parents today.

While "involatile" is an interesting word, i suspect you meant "inviolate."  (Sorry, Mom-the-English-teacher comes through every now and again.)
 
Marty-
A good part of the problem can be laid at the feet of the 501c3 deception, which converted Churches of Christ into "charitable orgs," aka "corporate entities," which then became vassals of the USG agents who regulate corporate entities.  Far too many "churches" today are "CINO," afraid to speak out on "controversial" subjects for fear of losing tax-free status which they ALREADY HAD, as you'll discover if you read the article.  Also, at the top left of that page is a link which will supply much more info on the 501c3...3 different links there.  If you look long enough, you may also find info on how to get your church OUT of that subservient relationship to the State...or any current "church" which has fallen prey to this deception, like the LDS.
 
This devious trickery is part and parcel of the long-foretold "Great Apostasy," btw, for most of these CINO orgs have no idea that they're not headed by Christ at all...not any more.  He has been supplanted by agents of Caesar.

You are absolutely correct that life is full of beauty and good and we are Blessed when we have these experiences. The word good is used 859 times in the Bible and is the 136 most used word.
 
At the same time, we must recognize the presence of evil in this world. The word evil is used 657 times in the Bible and is the 164 most used word. The word evil shows up in the first book of the Bible, Genesis chapter 6 and is seen throughout the Bible.
 
Evil is in this world and we cannot ignore it. Evil is real and must be reckon with to keep it somewhat under control. Evil will not be defeated and totally eliminated until the second coming of Jesus Christ. This is seen in the Bible scripture Revelation 20:10 -  And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
 
As humans non of use can be considered totally good. The Bible teaches this, which is seen in:
 
Mark 10:18 - "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good-except God alone.
 
Romans 3:10 - As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one;
 
As a Christian, I am always looking for the good in people, but I also know that none of us (including myself) are good 100% of the time.

No One Is Righteous, which you can see in the following Bible scripture:
 
Romans 3:9-20 -  What shall we conclude then? Do we have any advantage? Not at all! For we have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin.  As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” “Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit.” “The poison of vipers is on their lips.”Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin and misery mark their ways, and the way of peace they do not know.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.

You are very perceptive in your response. Yes, the call to arm is against those welfare pimps, gangbangers, drug dealers, and such. I ascertained it was the Black ones based on a few code words in bold (I do have White friends). ["He was driven by selfishness, accustomed to the government giving him money so he didn’t have to work, was raised in a home with no positive male influence and newborns have no right to life either in the womb or in the stroller.]
 
It has been long suggested that killing black babies in the womb would solve their criminalistic perversion, Hence, a host of birth control protocols have been secretly implemented on Black girls in public schools.

Marty - there sure is a lot of evil in the world:
The indoctrination of innocent kids-
The lack of consideration for living things and appreciation of nature-
The acceptance of violence as cool-
The thought that you can deal with violence with more violence-
The tribalism that separates people-
The greed that causes people to treat other people and creatures with utter disdain-
The selfishness that makes some people feel superior to others-
The arrogance that causes people to believe that their views are right and everyone else is wrong.
The list of evil goes on and on. I could write a book about it. In fact I might.

Evil people come from all races, creeds and sex. Evil people can be very poor to very rich. Evil people can live in every city, state, province, district, or country in the world. Evil people can be atheist, agnostic or affiliated with the various world religions. Evil people come in any age group.
 
Evilness can be as simple as having a bad thought of someone, saying something mean, to physically hurting or killing another person. Evilness is doing something that is not right in the eyes of God.

Dr Green. No mention of race came into this discussion in your context until you came along. Many philosophers have pointed out that you take God out of society and evil takes over.

Marty Koval Added Jan 1, 2019 - 8:43am
The world today is becoming just like Sodom and Gomorrah and all its evilness, told in the Bible.
 
The Story of Sodom and Gomorrah:
 
God was mercifully willing to spare the cities for the sake of a few righteous people, but none lived there. The Bible tells us all the inhabitants were depraved. One of the reasons God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah was because he did not want the Jews to be influenced by this evil. As the Creator of all things, God has the divine right to destroy evil as he sees fit.
 
Lot and his family were spared, but his future sons-in-laws were destroyed because they thought Lot was joking about God's wrath. Millions of people today think God and sin are things to joke about. God does exist, and he does punish unrepentant sinners.
 
The Bible clearly states that the fire and sulfur, or brimstone, rained down "from the Lord out of the heavens" (Genesis 19:24), not upward from a volcano.
 
Lot's wife, whose name is not given, became a pillar of salt. Why would God turn her into a pillar of salt? While salt has other associations in the Bible, it is often used as a symbol of death, destruction, judgment, and disobedience. Although some scholars believe Lot's wife was covered with molten material.  
 
Sodom and Gomorrah in Modern Times:
 
Similar to the time of Sodom and Gomorrah, evil is all around us in today's society, from lying and stealing to pornography, drugs, illicit sex, murder and violence. God calls us to be holy people set apart, not influenced by our wicked culture. Sin always has consequences, and you should take sin and God's wrath seriously.

In this situation, I have no idea if this young man was White, Hispanic, Black or Other. Many people state that the vast amount of criminals/murders come from broken homes, with only a mother raising the children. No Fatherly figure was in the home.
 
From the most recent data (2016) on single mothers, approximately half of single mothers in America have never married, 29% are divorced, 21% are either separated or widowed. 50% have one child, 30% have two. Of these children, Non Hispanic white is 36.1%, Hispanic is 29.8%, Black is 25.9% and other is 8.2%. A total of 24,767,000 children under the age of 18 are being raised without a father.
 
Many of these single mother families are on some form of government assistance, regardless of their race.
 
When you made the assumption, that this mother, child and murderer was black, the probability would be 25.9%. You might be correct, but maybe you are not correct. Assumptions are dangerous to use, because many times they are wrong.
