Hello new readers and followers as well as those who have stuck around following my blog until now… hello and welcome. Today is my Opinionated Wednesdays.
Although I like to talk about controversial subjects I have not really brought up the subject of religion because not everyone believes that there is a God or a greater being. However, growing up as a Christian and and looking back at what all has been happening around the world lately, especially in these past short 7 months, it is troubling to see where this world is heading.
In these 7 months almost everything has happened: from the series of police shootings of unarmed black men in America that is now all getting caught on camera; to the failed coup that occurred in Turkey; the killing of innocent victims in the shopping mall shooting and the train slashing in Germany; to the shooting up of the gay bar in Orlando that occurred about a month ago; and not to mention the Syrian immigration issues etc. There were many issues that have occurred but not mention here, issues that are still occurring and issues that are arising as I write this… I have to really wonder what is becoming of this world? Is this really the end times that the (Roman Catholic) Bible speaks of in Revelations? Are we really in the ending times? It sometimes feel like it although I may not be sure what the term end of the world truly means. If it means the return of Jesus or simply extinction of human kind.
Is the direction the world and our societies are headed into destruction? Are we gleefully running straight into self destruction without really realising it or we just simply do not care? With all of this intellectual knowledge and technology we have and use but yet we still treat each other, our fellow human being who bleed the same colour blood, like trash.
