This post is about current events.  Today is July 1, 2016.   The SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) has decided not to hear cases regarding objections to law based on religion.  It appears the US is turning into Sodom and Gomorrah faster than we thought possible.  Already wild beasts destroy humans – fatal bear attacks are on the rise as are dog attacks.  Did God mean that humans were wild beasts when He told us this was going to happen?  See Leviticus 26:22 and Ezekiel 14:15.  Note that these verses come in the midst of the Lord warning against idol worship.

What are we, the followers of Christ, to do?  I can only think of Paul and what he said about casting off the sin that so easily entangles fix your eyes on Jesus and press on to the goal, Philippians 3.

We are not supposed to sing songs to broken hearts so I will sing to the ones being healed by God’s mercy and grace:

Note:  We, followers of Christ, are being transformed into ever increasing glory, 2 Corinthians 3:18) – we are not going to be what we were.  What we will be has not yet been seen 1 John 3:2.
