... Living in whirlpool created by selfishness and greed
WE ARE entering into a whirlpool of self-concern. It is a system created by selfishness and greed. If Christianity is the concern for God and for others, atheism is a denial of the value of charity and concern for others.
Look at the craziness of abortion. How can a mother kill her child as a sacrifice to preserve her life, how can we throw away our parents so that the young may prosper preferring their own lives over the care and protection of their elderly parents, who gave them life? How can the rich countries trade with the poor countries to squeeze out the last pennies to fill their pockets? How can wealthy people seek greater and greater profit and not care for their employees and their need for family life and housing and basic commodities.
Why all the suicide today among children and elders? Why all the promiscuity, and, self-indulgence in food, clothing, parties, tattoos?
God is being eliminated from schools, our world is throwing out its ancient values, Christians are being persecuted, the Church is in disarray, family life is being rejected by children and adults, drugs are legalised, madness is evident in the streets. So many people are in rags, so many people are naked or half-naked sleeping on the streets and begging in our ghettoes.
Revelations tells us, “The great city will be thrown down, never again to be seen. Never again will there be music; no harpists, minstrels, trumpeters, and flutists. Never again will an artisan of any trade be found in you...never again will the light of a lamp shine on you ... . The voice of bridegroom and bride will never again be heard in you ... . You led the nations astray by your magic spell.” (Rev 18:1-2, 2123, 19:1-3).
