This reminds me of the fight of evolution and creation…Why are Contrary beliefs always forced even when truth stands up? But I guess everyone has a right to an opinion! I just never want to be on the wrong side of that opinion. This is one verse that has always stuck out to me when I was younger Genesis 15:15 – This was part of the future God was showing Abraham for his seed – “15 And you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old (hoary) age. 16 And in the [b]fourth generation they [your descendants] shall come back here [to Canaan] again, for the iniquity of the [c]Amorites is not yet full and complete.” So the iniquity (the inner workings of sin in a lineage or civilization) not being full, was the only thing that stopped the Amorites from being destroyed.
Punishment or the consequence of our choices never comes swiftly. Usually there’s a time to make a change however if that change isn’t made we will see the response to our choices. Sin is missing the mark, so if we are sinning there must have been a mark to be missed. Take a closer look at creation, it responds the same way! We are not the only part of creation held to the laws of the earth. Although we are the part of creation that was given dominion – not over man but the world.
So what am i saying? History always repeats it self! Look back at the destruction of other civilizations and take a look at the common sin. Its not hard see at all! But just like the all the others, we are doing what we feel like is right in our own eyes. Hmm but that always “leads” to destruction
