Yes...statistics go out the window when something has happened to us as individuals. Makes no difference if it happens 100 times per 1000 capita or 1 time per 1000 per capita if it happens to you...it makes the world seem dark and depraved.
We say the world is getting more evil...is it??? Or are we just more aware now of those things. News used to be only 30 minutes...now it is 24 hours a day...they have to fill that with something. With the advancements in technology...we now "see" these things as they happen.
The more aware that we are of what goes on around us the more that our perceptions change...we see the world differently. Not always in a bad way though...depends on what you expose yourself to.
My words are not exactly expressing my thoughts but maybe it comes down to...we see what we look for...we find find what we search for. Most days I see the world as this beautiful backdrop for life...however...a day comes when it appears to seem ugly...usually that happens when my perspective of things is "ugly".
I am not sure that there is an effective way to handle such as the events that were described. Is there a deterrence to such horrific crimes? Is there something that we can watch for...acknowledge...address in individuals that will stop it? If there is I believe that it needs to begin in childhood...before a child's problem leads to such actions. Only in the most extreme cases though would we be able to identify a troubled child.
My son went to high school with someone that a couple of years ago has been arrested and waiting trial for the horrif murder of a young woman. When he was arrested there were some in the community along with his parents that said..."oh...he could not do such a thing".
My son was not surprised when he found out...the kid was anti-social...a loner...and had several problems at school. I won't get in to why these problems were ignored...not in the mood this morning to step on toes I guess.
We have to be Honest with ourselves , and with our Children.
We have to be able to hear the Truth, and not be Blind to the Truth, even when it is our OWN child.

Some Parents just can not believe their child could EVER do such a thing, they uphold them to the very end. Then if the TRUTH does come out, that is when they see---yes their child was always different, full of anger, resentment and 'oh my God why why why.

The boy that did the Conn. school shooting, his Mother confided in several that her son went into rages and she didn't like leaving him alone. But then bought him a Gun and took him target practicing, a lot, does this make sense?---- No

It will always be someone's-- Son/daughter.

2 John 1:9

Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Lord (Father) and the christ(the Son).

I, too, don't understand the behavior.
It happens though.
"In 1861, two eight-year-old Stockport boys were tried for the murder of a toddler."
(...)he body of the two-year-old boy who had been found the previous day, suffocated, with his face in the water of a brook, his unclothed body brutally beaten.(...)
http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainme...
It isn't just confined to the current era(S), however, we just forget those instances in the past where children have murdered other children and adults.
When it happens in this day, we think it must be something new and heretofore unheard of .
Pretty much what I said earlier--just in different words.

You have the nerve calling me the son of Satan?
We'll see who is really the son of Satan in the Day of Judgment.

No Morals, No respect for themselves or others, No values to live by or guidelines for teaching our own, No reality, just fake love, pretend love , no Hope , Godless homes, no awarness of goings on,
no sacredness of Marriage and Home life, homeless, disasters, and the list could go on and on.
We must be aware, continue to stand up for Righteousness , and Prayer.
Pray like we have never prayed before. Pray without ceasing.
Really I just say it like this some people of this world are of the prehistoric genes pool.

Your lies are more attractive than the truth. Your lies are written down there in your book.

Yeah, I might have misunderstood a bit.

At the same time, there are times that an illustration comes in handy.

I used to have a link to crimes committed by children that went back a few hundred years in history and it was pretty shocking in that - it looks like children do these things on occasion - it doesn't really depend on a time period or era.

Much like serial killers, it's an aberrational behavior, not an increasing or decreasing trend.

Population increases make it appear as if "there are more now than there were then".

Not proportionately.

It might even be said that with crime detection methods and those involved sciences, there might well be */more crime detected\* now than before - when - the - population - was - less.

I doubt you could support that in a comparison, but you could pose that question or observation as a valid view.

I am glad to know that. Any wonder you have been recording them in a book.
Those unforgettables are imprinted firmly in my memory cells!
Yes ~ my book is meant to be about Faith and Prayer having the amazing ability to get us through the worst times in our lives; and is meant to be filled with hope. The start until the end, so to speak :)

That's sad but true.
One reason why the box also has a switch if we choose.
I was tho referring to a Jesus 'thread' which is not the box nor the news papers or mags...
(((*()*))) xx Thanx for caring.
I know PW ~ and we have tried to keep it that way, and failed. It is as it is, and I do care. Most children have all the mod cons that connect them to the 'real' world, and it would be hard for any parent to deny their children and make them the odd ones out. The Amish lifestyle also has its problems, and they have tried to keep it free of the issues of today. But you are right, and this is a thread about why should JESUS loves us, and it is up to as, as individuals, to present ourselves in the best way possible, to be loved in return. IMHO :)

Please feel free to show us all just exactly which lies they are....

Or are you spouting worthless rhetoric?

How is it that "YOU" have access to "MY" book, and know anything whatsoever about me?

You are showing your dishonesty and foolhearted folly with every post.

Of course. Our methods of detection are far more sophisticated by necessity. Our methods discovering the primal cause and eliminating the problem is sorely lacking.
Remember that if that were to be accomplished, we would no longer need the massive services of huge government agencies that have developed around those activities.

Today's Prayer
Dear God, Truly blessed are the feet of those who share the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I pray for every Christian, and every Christian leader, who shares your love and gift of life with others. I pray for protection and blessing upon those lives. I pray that you will give each of us the messages that you want us to speak and nudge us through your Holy Spirit to speak at the right times and the right places. Through your power, may the world know that you are God and through our ministries, may you be glorified, souls saved, and Christians united in strength and love. In the Savior's name I pray, amen.
Prime time with God
Amen :)
