Is The World Running Out of Good Virtues?


We are gathering natural resources faster than they can recuperate. We are gathering the fish of the seas faster than they can reproduce themselves. We are using up the oil of the earth. We are depleting our natural resources, God gave us to use wisely but we still exist and are progressing maybe slower but we still are moving forward. Why I ask, what is happening?

I know the theories of man and those who call out “green planet.” It is frightening to understand what is going on around the world. The ice caps are melting and the ocean is rising. Yes some say this could be the end, so what do we do? The temperature of our planet is rising and the sun is at one of the hottest points in years cast radiation thousands of miles into the solar system.

I honestly believe I’m not smart enough to rationalize all the claims that are happening in the world about natural resources. I just don’t have the answers. One thing I do know. There is a God and I will stand firm and won’t budge one inch from this knowledge. One thing we are running out of in this world is virtue. This people today on this earth are taking large drafts of what is left of virtue. Goodness and virtue are the only things that will lengthen our curve of existence. Why aren’t the pundits telling us how goodness will help in times of difficulty? Our reserves of goodness are even more precious than oil.

I’m not sure if science under stands the laws of God or even if they really care. Oh I’m sure some understand and care but when the politicians start running with rhetoric about saving the planet my blood becomes warm and could start to boil. I am developing a very caustic view point toward politicians.

Science seems to think they have all the answers but no one has every answer except the creator of earth. The world was created by God who saw our day. He made this earth and the earth is capable of housing the inhabitants with the natural recourses necessary. The scales of justice must be in balance. When evil tilts the scales of justice and tilt beyond our ability to rebalance them, we become subject to no return. We run out of everything including virtue. No virtue no justice, no justice no mercy, no mercy, no help, no help no chance to change, no time, no excuse.
