CURRENT TOPIC/THEME: Why are so many things going wrong in the world?
I got two responses to my previous post and I am most grateful. The question was:
“WHY ARE SO MANY THINGS GOING WRONG IN THE WORLD?”
“If you sit in front of TV set for 20 minutes watching a news bulletin one evening, or read a Mail & Guardian opinion piece in bed, you will swear and feel that the world is going to end the following morning…
… Every full news bulletin – if watched in its entirety – tend to demotivate and to alarm the viewer that this world “is one big, bad world!!!
With apology to the writer. I selected these quotes from his comprehensive response to the question I posed.
The second respondent’s opinion was short and to the point. He wrote:
“The answer is very simple.
Because people are turning away from Jesus.”
I was hoping to post something on my BLOG at least once a week but unfortunately repairs to my site are taking longer than I had anticipated.
I will be continuing to share my opinion as soon as my site issues have been fixed. Just to fill the gap, I am sharing something that could relate to our discussion for you to think about. We are still on the same theme/topic, ““WHY ARE SO MANY THINGS GOING WRONG IN THE WORLD?”
Without trying to share bad news with you I was just looking at the stats regarding the mortality rate in South Africa in 2022 and wish to share it with. You will find more information at this site. https://tinyurl.com/24szrs8p
The question is, can we do anything to change the trends? Maybe this song released in 2010 might be a pointing in the right direction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOxoeGL3tTo If possible, try listening to it with your eyes closed.
This prompted me to look at how many murders were committed in South Africa per day. The source I consulted says 82. (2022) Read more at https://www.statssa.gov.za/?cat=19
Maybe this song released in 1972 is worth all its 3:43 minutes of playing time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQjSa4r_fiI The next one is a bit longer (4.31 minutes) and perhaps it’s best to listen to it when you are in a relaxed mood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFU-FJzPE80
