What's up with the USA?
Something is really wrong in this country. The news in the last couple of weeks has been full of stories about men who go off the deep end and take the lives of their wives/girlfriends and even worse, their innocent children. Then some, like the wrestler, take their own lives. You know, if you're gonna off yourself anyway, just do that and spare the wife and kids and let them live their lives. I had a good friend growing up who was chased down and killed by her husband just before he killed himself. He was stopped by local law enforcement from committing suicide just the day before. Since he was so determined to do himself in, why couldn't he have left her alone and let her go on with her life. She would certainly have been better off. The problem was prophesied a long time ago. Jesus said about the last days, "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." Isn't this what we have seen? The answer is a return to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Putting God first in this country would go a long way. However, as a whole, this nation will continue to become more sinful. These are the last days and things will get worse before they get better. It would be nice though, to have a break from these horrendous reports in the news.
