We hear about hit and runs all the time but this one is unbelievable. I was listening to Channel 2 Houston early this morning. They reported that a man was driving on I45 in Houston, TX. when he hit a pedestrian. He continued driving even though that pedestrian had gone through the windshield and was lodged between the windshield and the passenger seat.
The driver continued driving for over a mile as if nothing was wrong. He only stopped after police pulled him over noticing his broken windshield. To their horror they found a man severed at the knees laying in the car. When asked about the dead body in his car the man simply said he thought he had ran over something. Really?
I sat in shock listening to this report on the morning news. How can someone be so calloused as to drive with a dead body beside him as if nothing had happened? Everyone is shocked.
But I challenge everyone to take a close look at what we are doing today. What we once held as appalling is now the norm and vehemently protected. Baby killing, perversion, selfishness unto death and so many other “acceptable” lifestyles have found their way into our country and into our lives. Where is the conscience of mankind?
Those who have eyes to see through the new “freedom” are criticized, ridiculed and prosecuted. Evil is protected and the preservation of decency is attacked. Therefore evil will prevail.
For years we’ve been told we are from apes or pond scum. So why would we expect people to feel compassion for others or themselves? Not much value in that origin. But try to tell people that a loving God created them with a purpose and they think you’re crazy. I can’t understand why someone would want to believe they “just happened” and have no real future. Where is the reason for living in that?
We’ve accepted lies that keep us from our true potential.
So we have people killing one another, killing themselves, hopelessness, drugs, sex and anything that can bring some relief to the insatiable desire to have purpose and pleasure. Some people have severed their consciences and become devoid of reality. Hence a man can drive away with a dead body laying next to him without any emotion or conscience.
The further from God we get the darker life becomes. Life does not offer freedom without God. What makes a person have convictions? Surely evolution didn’t create that. What about love? Love isn’t needed to functionally survive or is it?
We all seek to be loved, but why? Because we were made in the image of God and God is love. Unless we meet that creator and acknowledge Him we will never have that love necessary to live life to the fullest. Our senses are numbed and our consciences are seared.
How many of us are riding around with a dead body next to us unaware? When we allow the decay of society to be all around us without doing something we are no better than that driver.
