The behaviour of what was happening during the eye of the storm (Irma ) and after the storm was a display of evil in men’s and women’s hearts. What was displayed in the streets of Philipsburg is the past decades of the lack of family values and not proper upbringing of the young men and young women. The lack of respect for order and law and respect of people’s property which is the disobedience of God’s laws much less man’s laws. Vulgarity was also in action.
Gen. 6.5: The LORD saw that human evil was growing more and more throughout the earth, with every inclination of people's thoughts becoming only evil on a continuous basis.
More shameful is to see some parents have their children helping them steal or loot. I remember well as a young man President Ronald Reagan said a nation not under God is a nation gone under. The next step will be the Jobless rate climbs and the increase in private prostitution will also skyrocket.
The virtues of so many women and men is non-existent. A virtue is a trait or quality that is deemed to be morally good and thus is valued as a foundation of principle and good moral being. We do not have much relationships any more, what we have now is an animal farm, many men and women have 2 or 3 other children by different partners.
The practice or condition of being married to only one person at a time is out of style but not for God. The condition of having only one mate is like sin now. The norm is for women and men to have 2 or 3 partners. This is what children see in the daily lives. They see mother and father cheat, so cheating stealing and looting is now the in thing or normal thing.
The facts are we have ourselves to blame for the continuous evil we saw during the eye of the storm and when the storm passed. Ask the young people when last their parents carried them to church or do their parents teach them about a loving Savior Jesus?
Prov. 19:13: A foolish child is a ruin to his father and the quarreling of a woman is a continuous dripping.
What we saw during the eye of the storm was the human heart not only enjoying and tolerating evil but worse, bragging about what they have done.
Matthew 24:12-13: And because lawlessness will abound , the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
Psalm 73:7: From their callous hearts comes iniquity; their evil imaginations have no limits.
Romans 6:12: Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
Romans 12:21-21: Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Mark 7:21-22: For it is from within, out of a person's heart, that evil thoughts come – sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly.
The conclusion is this: stop the continuous evil. The fear of the Lord is to hate evil and the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Choices have consequences, choose wisely and choose good.
