View Full Version : A time for madness and God's judgment
August 15th, 2010, 06:34 AM
Has there ever been a time in history when there was so much "madness" controling the world?
Have we ever seen this before, down through history? :scratch
Difficult to say regarding a perception. War is the height of madness.
I would have to say some of the years of WWII would have been a very difficult time. Potentially active madmen and active madmen make a difference. We all can certainly see how this world is being set up for confrontation, like no other.

I also have wondered, even posting a thread about this some time back, whether madness is a precursor to judgement? Could it be equated with being turned over to a reprobate mind? Remember the episode of Nebuchadnezzar's insanity. In America alone it seems as though we, as a whole, are gravitating towards the polar opposite of sensibility and righteousness, choosing rather the most ridiculous courses to pursue. For instance, we do not defend our borders, knowing full well the drug cartels as well as islamic sypathizers are coming across in droves, we accept homosexual everything regardless of the fact that all of the evidence points to it's negative impact on society, let alone the spiritual condemnation of the lifestyle. We are spending money that will not have any value whatsoever by the time it is printed...it's like we are in self destruct mode.
To reply to your question, in my opinion, madness is the result of the beginning of God withdrawing His hand...
Fine post! :thumb
It can look like our time is worse than other times; however, the American Civil War was also very , very bloody and horrific according to history I recently saw on television. It's hard to believe people were that "fierce" on both sides , evidently.

Recently, I listened to a pastor (forget who exactly :doh) make this compelling point:
The early 20th century was the first time in recorded human history when atheist systems captured political power in many nations - Communism and Facism.
Is it a coincidence then, that more people died in wars and famines in the 20th century than in all previous times before it? (By some estimates.)
When entire nations rejected God, He gave them up to their follies. Consider that almost as many Russians died in World War 2 as did people from all other countries put together.
Now consider the 21st century we live in, when nation after nation passes laws allowing gay marriage. This is merely an indirect way of rejecting God and His laws. In fact most religions today are regarded with amused disregard, undisguised contempt, and in the case of Christianity, outright hostility.
So the harvest is bound to be even more dreadful...but we of all folks should not be surprised.
