Evil Continually…does humanity’s evil have a limit? Is there a breaking point when we will turn toward goodness and long for peace and love? Will the thirst and hunger for evil ever be satisfied? As one looks across the landscape of man’s passion for wicked the answer seems clear–no. Man will not be satisfied until every passion is explored.

We can sing happy songs and look the other way if we choose but things are not getting better. (read more) Tell me if you can what indications are there that we will turn this train wreck around. Our hearts should break for people who suffer at the hands of brutal humanity. Our souls should cry out to God to bring redemption in the midst of this evil scourge. This is not a passing fad among crazed lunatics. People have always had this devious nature but things are different now. The access to the internet and technology ‘toys’ make images, ideas, and tools of torture readily available. The thought that people live in that world should sicken us all. They imagine what it would be like to hurt people–and worse. They are dead souls walking among us.

Furthermore, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, He gave them up to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done.
A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil,
None of this is a surprise to the Lord. He knows what is in the heart of man. He has a plan to fix it.
The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
From Terry James Prophecy Line
To my way of thinking, the number-one societal/cultural manifestation that points to the fact that this generation is at the very end of these last days is the wickedness that’s in every direction one looks. Evil permeates not just our lives through the never-ending crimes that assault us in every way imaginable, but also our very imaginations—individually and collectively—constantly delve and wallow in every sort of evil…read more
The goodness of God will prevail. The world will have peace and people will live in harmony with each other. But before the time of peace we must endure the growing darkness for a little while longer.
