Certainly the deaths and those injured at the Boston Marathon is an horrific tragedy. Life is not precious to so many people today. There is a general coarsening of humanity and the inhumanity of man to man is rising to the forefront of our daily living.
We mourn and weep and pray for all those whose lives have been torn asunder. Our hearts are broken because tragedies seem to be increasing. We know that investigations are ongoing to find the perpetrators of these incidents.
What drives the heart of the man that would indiscriminately kill and maim young and old, male and female? Evil. God in Genesis 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. This evil heart of man brought on the flood. We find later that this evil heart brought about the destruction of Sodom and her sister city. Evil is not new.
What is pushing this evil heartedness. It happens when man turns away from God. Man removes the laws of God from society and then wonders why evil is bound up in the heart of man. It is fairly clear that the more we remove God from society, evil grows. The further away from God man gets the more coarse and evil man becomes.
Now those that believe in God, worship God and try to live by the teachings of Jesus are being accused of possibly being the ones behind the Boston Bombing.
How can this be? We practice love for our fellowman, charity and benevolence. We practice compassion for the unfortunate and assistance where help is need. What law is there against these practices. All others have the right to think, practice and believe as they want. We that believe in God are laughed at and ridiculed because we hold the beliefs that have been held according to God’s Word and have been honored for several thousands of years.
Now the media would like to label us as dangerous, radical terrorists that would bomb innocent people. Their notion and labeling is radical and speaks of devious and jealous heart.
There is the problem. A lack of God. “The fool hath said in his heart there is no God!
