The Mother of All Problems Facing Our World Today?

Desertification_CirclesMany people are familiar with 2 Chronicles 7:14 where God says basically “if we repent, He will heal our land.”  Yet I cannot see that our land is getting “healed” yet – quite the reverse actually. This post explores this verse a bit from a different angle.

Today I feel that we are facing “The Mother of All Problems” in our world today, a problem of such magnitude that I feel it is foundational to many of the other problems – political, economic, social, spiritual – problems many of us are working on. Now that I have been made aware of this problem and have studied it, I feel that it is much bigger and more pressing than any of the other big problems and that if we were to all work together to solve this one very big problem, many of the other smaller problems would be solved as well - automatically.

[NOTE 5/14/14: In this article I used the word "rape" to describe what is happening to our cropland.  I'm now sorry I used that word and will not use it again because it could be taken offensively by cropland farmers.  I do NOT mean to imply that cropland farmers are "raping" land.  There is NO mal intent on the part of farmers that I am aware of at all.  Cropland farmers are just doing what has always been done for centuries - plowing, planting, harvesting.]

The Problem

What am I talking about?  Well, at the risk of sounding crass … the problem I see is Land Rape. [Please note: the True Mother of All Problems is SIN - Land Rape is just another sin, but it happens to be one that I believe very few people focus on and it has had huge effects and how can we repent of any sin if we aren't even aware of it?]  Land Rape?  What am I talking about?  Genesis 1:28 says “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and *subdue* it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Read more »

Vaccinations and Mutant Fire Ants

FireantHow’s that for an attention getting title? OK I’ll get right to the point. Imagine if you had a bad problem with fire ants in your backyard (like in Texas). What would you do? Well you’d buy some fire ant killer and nuke ‘em. But go sci-fi with me a minute and imagine if you killed a lot of them, BUT … some remained and mutated into a much more aggressive type fire ant and they multiplied prolifically! If this happened would you say that “nuking the fire ants” with whatever-it-was (Raid?) you bought at the store was a great idea? I think not.

Now let’s talk vaccinations and shift from thinking about fire ants to polio viruses. To put all this in perspective, the World Health Organization (WHO) brags that vaccinations have caused a huge decline in polio cases worldwide, from an estimated 350,000 cases in 1988 to only 223 cases in 2012.

But hold on. In 2011, India alone reported 47,500 new cases of Acute Flaccid Paralysis, “clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly.” Folks, that’s 47,500 new cases in ONE year in INDIA ALONE!!! Same symptoms. Twice as deadly!! And the WHO is celebrating near eradication!!??

Sorry, but that’s like celebrating eradication of the original fire ant type and totally ignoring the mutant one which is twice as deadly!!

Excuse me, but am I missing something?
