The Alarming thing is that the answer across the nation, when asked why this is happening, say "we don’t know why." As if they are dumbfounded. Or, they defer to statistical variances, scientific nuances or process flaws, such as Hagel, Defense Secretary did.

The answer from the Scriptures and Holy God: They are eating the fruit or their own way and are being filled with their own devices. (Proverbs 1:31).

The fire that burns for an hour

At the verge of standing at the burning stake, Polycarp, in his eighties says, “You threaten the fire that burns for an hour and then is quenched; but you know not of the fire of the judgment to come, and the fire of eternal punishment.”

All the good in Jesus dwells

Paul writes in Romans 7:18 that “nothing good dwells in me”(NASB) but Ephesians 2 speaks about the good we are to do, that God prepared beforehand. What gives? How is anyone
to do good if there is nothing good in us?

Good question!

Jesus is our good, period. Apart from him we can do nothing. In fact, it is Christ in us the hope of glory! God has sent His only begotten Son into the world that we might live through Him (1John 4:9).

It is not enough to profess Christ, we must possess Christ!
