WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: A Week Between

This week was one of those quiet moments in time in between waves of awful news – a moment that allows you to put awful events into perspective, as well as talk about other issues that need to be addressed. There is, after all, a bigger picture and more things going on in the world than Ebola, World War III and the fall of the American Empire.

So, as the next wave of pandemic, war and financial collapse gathers itself for another attempt to swamp our lives with awful news, we have the opportunity to connect some other dots and look at other problems.

Looking Beyond Ebola

I truly hope that you are concerned about Ebola. Otherwise, you would have to be brain-dead, and that’s not a good situation to be in. The problem is that Ebola is just one of a HUGE number of problems that are almost too much to think about.

This is why, as you look at the future, please consider what ELSE is out there, ready to pounce. These are the Last Days, and the Four Horsemen ride the Earth. Empires will fall, and rise again. Wars and violence will consume the Earth. There will be disease and natural disaster. Billions will die.

And you WON’T enjoy it.

Ebola, Urbanization and the Spanish Flu

I’m struck by a thought that I haven’t seen anyone talk about – the effect of urbanization on the spread of pandemics. And, I’m surprised that so little is being said about this.

Yet, it would have been the growth in city population (i.e., urbanization) that had to have been one of the leading causes for why so many died of the Spanish Flu. Those living in cities would have had a dramatically higher chance of dying from the 1918 Flu Pandemic, than those who live outside the cities, on a farm.

Even more interesting is the fact that the Spanish Flu of 1918 was less lethal than Ebola – ‘only’ killing between 10% and 20% of its victims.

How Western Civilization Dies

When I saw nurse Kaci Hickox mount a legal challenge against New York’s quarantine law, all that I could do was shake my head in disgust.

When I saw Barak Obama attempt to do the same, it only deepened my absolute revulsion.

It isn’t Ebola that will destroy America, it’s the evil men and women who care for no one but their own foolish greed that will destroy us. In fact, we had better hope that Ebola is as bad as we fear, because if we conquer this threat in such a sloppy way, we will be wide open for when something worse comes along.

And, yes, there ARE diseases that are worse than Ebola.

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Our Sin Runs Through It

As I look back on this week, I see a theme that runs through it – our sinfulness. We have made compromises on the truth. We have compromised our morality. And, we have chosen pastors who do the same.

And, when that happens, God sends strong delusions among us:

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

The word for ‘damned’ is the Greek word, krithosin – or, should be judged. And, THAT is what is happening right now. We are being judged by God.
