There is a phrase known as “Coming off the rails”. What this means is that we have lost order, things have become chaotic. What we thought to be a path to take, is no longer taken, and not only have we taken the road less traveled, we are on a path that has no destination. My mind has come to think about this phrase because I think our society is coming off the rails.
Our society does not have rules anymore. As a society, we don’t even know where we are going. We do what we want, and shame on you for telling anyone what to do. In many ways, our society is becoming non-sensical. We have truly come to live for the moment, and our value system is created by the most extreme and passionate minds.
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Proverbs 14:12
“This won’t end well”. This is another popular phrase. There are people who can see how things will turn out. They see the collision with a wall coming ahead. They understand there are repercussions for our actions, but in those cases, what should they do? What should we do? This world is in a lot of hurt, and to be honest, those in the “know” have not done enough to help those we are grasping for straws. I sense our world needs a sense of direction and purpose, but what are going to do about it? We can point at the problems of the world, but what good would that do? People are seriously lost. People need a Savior, and His people have not done enough. It is hard to blame the world, because in reality, it has always been lost. Christians have found a path, a true path. It might be a good time to help this world. “All things must end”. We know Jesus is coming back very soon. I believe there are many people out there, looking for someone to believe in. If we can show them love, true love, love can find a way.
