A fallen world in the news this week #MH17 #Gaza #ISIS #AntiSemetism

The news of the last few weeks or so has been devastating:

Israel hits hundreds of targets in Gaza as soldier is confirmed missing

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash

Isis militants ‘seize Iraq monastery and expel monks’

France’s Jews Flee As Rioters Burn Paris Shops, Attack Synagogue

It should and shouldn’t surprise us when we see the true face of human evil in the world. It should surprise us because we should long for a world that is completely redeemed and freed from the pain and suffering of sin, yet we shouldn’t be surprised because the unfortunate reality is that this world isn’t totally redeemed yet. 

The society at large likes to think that humanity is “evolving” as we progress in so-called knowledge and intelligence. But the essence of a fallen human race in desperate need of the love of Christ is something we will never get away from, whether we shirk it off, deny it, fight against it or express apathy towards it.
