Livin’ on the Edge

The Corrupt and Decieving Days

2 Timothy 3:1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

 

The world we live in consists of two views. Our world is what goes on everyday in our lives. Hanging out with friends, going to church, joking with co-workers. It’s what we make out of it. You fail, it’s your fault, not mine. And if it was my fault, it’s your fault to have trusted me. Blame whoever you can. You break-up with your boyfriend. The girl over there mourns the loss, wallowing in her tears of youth escapades. Another girl would just call the next guy in line. Seeing the whole concept as status. Coming home and deciding to relax after a long, stressful day at work. Instead of watching the troubles of other people, you decide to treat yourself to some eye candy. Paying a few bucks to get some hot, steamy porn. The wife’s off with her parents for the week, you’ll get the bill before then. A simple minded standpoint of OUR world is but a reflection in the water. Just that this reflection is at a far distance, because what the world is and has become is something to lose all hope over. Drugs rule the underworld of the cities. Rival drug overlords battling for territory. The war pigs of this earth continue to duke it out for reasons that have no gain. Gore and violence still entertains the twisted minds of people around the world. Rape is on the all time high in today’s history. What God has told is wrong is sinful is pleasure to the rest of the world. Everyone knows that it’s wrong, yet we continue to do it. We are rebellious in nature and take grand joy and pride in it. Taking His Name and putting it lower than dirt. Taking what we can for ourselves and forsaking the needs of others. Hoarding what we can so we can proclaim to the rest of society “look what I have!”

Hope for this world is thinning so quickly. The moment someone begins to make things better for society, they are immediatley killed or taken out of the picture. Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, Sitting Bull, these people began to make a difference, yet were all taken out of the picture or have lost influence. This drives billions around the world to lose all hope for this forsaken planet and enjoy life while they can. Having sex with countless different people. Ruining the lives of others so they can get their minds off their own problems, choosing violence over peace,  murdering people to make their own life easier, decieving others to make profit to fill their own wallets. . .the moment someone proposes peace, we are all giving them our undivided attention. Through propaganda, Adolf Hitler fooled an entire nation to believe him a god who was going to make the world a perfect place. Leaders today, locally or globally, propose so many promises tha are obviously to good to be true. The gov, media, society, religion, and people individually are so corrupt that why do we even bother to change a world that is already wailing out in unsatifiyable pain. Advocates of destruction yell blaspemy about war, politics, the perverse society, extermination. The media makes up so many things to get you to watch. Gaining so much profit with ratings. It could tell you that the sky is falling, and countless would believe it. When radio first emerged, a radia host decided to tell a suspence/thriller story about the world’s end. Those tunning in later in the show thought that the world truely was coming to an end. People began to panic; crashes, murder, suicide, and paranoia was rapidly takng escalation. Despite this, people continued to listen to the radio. They came back to the one who decieved them and listened again and again and again. . .People try to make things better, facing obstacles and trials that test their endurance. Countless being martyred for their causes. Others don’t even bother. They either neglect the problem as a whole or acknowledge it, but don’t do anything about it. They carry on with their daily lives and continue to live in their own secluded little world. So many are just trying to hang on for dear life. They can’t change their situation and are not aware of what is going on everywhere else. The only thougths that consume their mind’s are how to live another day. We are Livin’ on the Edge. There is no neglecting it. So many inequities and transgressions that mark this world make it so unbearable. Sometimes looking back at better times is much better than looking toward the future, for the future is no where brighter than today. On the contrary, a hallway that grows ever so dimmer as society continues to take its walk down to its iminite end. You really can’t help yourself from falling, you can’t stop it. The world is carening downward and there is nothing you can do to stop it, but there is a way to save your life. . .
