I was just thinking of the Violence of the gangs in Greater Vancouver area in the last few months. With daily shootings of rival gangs. And bystanders getting caught in the crossfire. Where and when will it end. The government are striking up task forces to deal with this.
I started contemplating what the bible says about violence and did a few bible searches ( I love computers for this fast task). Here are some I came up with, and what does it tell us. That doing things not Gods way has consequences. But if we follow the Lord as a nation there is hope. Like in Noah's day it was filled with violence , and So it will be in the day of the coming Lord. So it hasn't changed we need God's rescue.Genesis 6
The FloodGenesis 6:11
Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight and was full of violence.
Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence.
From the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things, but the unfaithful have a craving for violence.
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
