This is the air I breathe

I watched Louie Giglio’s “How Great is our God” DVD and was struck at how lost the people of our planet are. The inhabitants of this tiny spec of matter (in comparison to our cosmic neighborhood) are producing a sort of chaos that truly defies comprehension.
We hang collectively on a sphere or minuscule ball, suspended by forces we cannot comprehend while representing to one another, madness!
It is fact that we have experienced extraordinary technologies. We have proved to be a people capable of advancing with limitless potential and yet our propensity to destroy one another is out pacing what we have done or who we have tried to be.
We at one time understood evil. We knew it to be the unimaginable, unthinkable, horrific and shocking. Today it is the 5:00 news!
As I write this someone is being raped, a child is being molested, a wife is being murdered. I could point out all of the evil atrocities plaguing our planet and the one commonality they all share is that we are the perpetrators.
Governments are collapsing; the economies of the globe are collapsing while the mentality of loving one another collapsed several decades ago.
I read recently where several terrorist died while working with a deadly bacterium! The insidious reality is that these guys made a mistake along the way; along the way to what? I suppose it is safe to say that we shall eventually have an answer to this question.
The good guys are killing the bad guys while the bad guys are killing all of us. All of this occurring across the surface of a little, tiny, blue marble that remains suspended in the cosmos of infinity!
Whether or not you are an optimist or a pessimist is irrelevant. The fact remains, death by killing is as common as is child birth. We visit other planets that have no life, marvel at the glory of other galaxies. We are fundamentally inspired by the sheer beauty of the cosmos. At the same, time we prepare our selves to perform abortions or to kill each other on the battlefield. It is what we do, how we live!
If one simply takes a good, long look at what is occurring in our microscopic corner of the cosmos you will undoubtedly conclude that evil has been marginalized. In fact, you will see that it is just as much apart of us as is the air that we breathe.
