Question of the Day. (But not every day)

Thursday, September 22, 2011

I am taking a break from remodeling my kitchen (more on that later) to ask a simple question.

Is the United States "circling the drain"?


Smitty 8:10 PM  

No, I don't believe we are circling the drain. I do believe that we have jumped the shark.

Well, perhaps. Our treatment of the poor probably gets God's attention, as it has in the past for say other countries... say Israel* before they went into oblivion...

I see the following every week.

Amos 8
1 This is what the Lord God showed me—a basket of summer fruit. a 2 He said, "Amos, what do you see?" And I said, "A basket of summer fruit." Then the Lord said to me, "The end has come upon my people Israel; I will never again pass them by. 3 The songs of the temple shall become wailings in that day," says the Lord God; "the dead bodies shall be many, cast out in every place. Be silent!" 4 Hear this, you that trample on the needy, and bring to ruin the poor of the land, 5 saying, "When will the new moon be over so that we may sell grain; and the sabbath, (we could put Wal Mart among others here) so that we may offer wheat for sale? We will make the ephah small and the shekel great, and practice deceit with false balances, 6 buying the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals, and selling the sweepings of the wheat." 7 The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob: Surely I will never forget any of their deeds.

*The so called lost ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom.

No. It seems if you look back there have been periods in history where things were worse, so I just don't see now as all that bad.

A local Baptist Pastor blogged on this subject just recently, convinced that the End is Near.

That is pretty much THE opinion around here. Though, I agree with Steves, things have been worse.

Actually if you just go by violent crime statistics, things are getting better!
