Worth showing again

After reading this on AOL news, I just sat and wondered what this world is coming to.  Murder, rape, child abuse, war, drugs etc...  Unspeakable acts of violence against each other.  I hate to say this but if there really is a God, how can He allow this to continue?  How can he allow children to be stolen in the night and sexually abused and tortured and killed?  How can he allow women with unborn babies to be murdered.  If anyone out there has the answer please let me know.  I hate to feel my faith being weakened like it is.  I want to believe in a strong loving God.  Maybe we are all just highly evolved apes after all.  Just a few thousand years from the cave and club....

Linda you just came from a bad situation, it's normal to feel this way, but if the truth be known, most of these same things were happening years ago also, we just didn't have news competing the same way 24/7 and back when I was young, the radio only gave what they thought was worthy news. Remember God gave all of us a free will, most of us were taught the ten commandments, read the bible, prayed as a family, before and after meals as well as at bedtime, today there are too many toys, cell phones, computers, TV's etc. families just don't seem to find the time for one another. Now you just put a smile back on your face, there is nothing you can do about all the bad things that are happening, but you have a beautiful daughter to show the way, preaching is not always the best teacher, smiling and enjoying life will help her as well as you. I'll keep you in my prayers. gg/jackie from the journal Do you Remember.

I hate to be a doomssayer and I am not an expert on the Bible but I believe we are living in the end of time. I have read some in the book of Revelation and it seems to be coming true. As for why all these bad things have to happen I don't know. Paula

Linda...we do not understand, nor CAN we right now...but I do know that we were given free choice and when Eve and Adam messed up in the garden of Eden..well that started it all...

The one thing we do learn from all the evil deeds is compassion for other human beings and to hate evil....No ABOVE ALL>>>Don't let the news destroy your faith Linda...God is still here...and I am like Paula...I firmly believe it won't be long until HE puts an end to it.
Love ya,
carlene

 ACCORDING TO OUR BIBLE WHICH I CERTAINLY BELIEVE, GOD HAS CORRECTED EVIL SUCH AS WE ARE EXPERIENCING NOW.
     GOD WILL DO IT HIS WAY.
IT IS TRUE AS YOU SAY, TERRIBLE THINGS ARE HAPPENING. THERE ARE CORRUPT JUDGES AND OFFICIALS ALLOWING EVIL.
    THE 'CAMEL' HAS IT'S NOSE IN THE TENT AND MORE IN SOME AREAS. WE MUST UNITE (SINCERE cHRISTIANS) TO ELECT PEOPLE THAT WILL ENFORCE LAWS, MANY WHICH ARE NOW ENACTED AND IGNORED BY ONES IN POWER THAT HAVE A SOFT SPOT FOR PEDOPHILES AND OTHER EVIL ONES.
     PEOPLE THAT KEEP UP WITH CURRENT EVENTS CAN EASILY SEE THAT OUR CONGRESS ARE IGNORING HIDEOUS CRIMINAL ACTIVITY AGAINST CHILDREN WHILE HAVING INVESTIGATIONS ONE AFTER ANOTHER AGAINST POLITICAL OPPONENTS AND OVER THINGS HAVING DID LITTLE HARM.
   VENGEFUL ACTIVITY  CONCERNING FANCIED PERSONEL HURTS.    sam

We CAN'T elect a single person to make this world a better place. Humans are not the answer. Some might be better than others but, the devil owns this corrupt world right now! We should NOT be putting faith in anyone other than GOD right now. Don't let their party affilliation fool you either. Trust in God that he is going to take care of us soon. I think part of the problem has been because we have put too much faith in humans to make this world better and we are so hard headed, that he has to let us start to figure it out thehard way!

Hope things get better for you!
