I’m Sad And Upset At The Violent Crime In Albuquerque

Dewey Moede

I am upset today, upset and sad……..at the violent crime happening in Albuquerque, the murders. It’s like so many so called leaders don’t get it. This is a heart problem, it’s not a political problem.  It’s time we face this problem of the heart, soul and mind. Things are going to get worse in Albuquerque and New Mexico, in the United States, and the World unless………..Why are we afraid to admit crime is out of control?

Hearts need to be given to Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 57:20 says, “The wicked are like the tossing sea; for it cannot rest, and its waters toss up and mire and dirt.” The sea does not need anything special to produce mire and dirt; that is the result of its natural motions. This is also true of us when we are under the condition of sin. The natural motions of our lives produce mire and dirt, Sin is a part of the internal structure of our lives. No special effort is needed to produce it. No wonder we feel trapped.

Our ordinary method of dealing with ingrained sin is to launch a frontal attack. We rely on our willpower and determination. Whatever may be the issue for us—–anger, fear, bitterness, gluttony, pride, lust, substance abuse, even robbery and murder—-we determine never to do it again; we pray against it, fight against it, set our will against it. But the struggle is in vain, and we find ourselves once again morally bankrupt or, worse yet, so proud of our external righteousness that “whitened sepulchers” is a mild description of our condition. In his excellent book entitled ‘Freedom From Sinful Thoughts’ Heini Arnold writes. “We….want to make it quite clear that we cannot free and purify our own heart by exerting our own ‘will’.

Scriptures call the mind of the natural man “blinded” 2 Cor. 4:4, “depraved” Romans 1:28, “corrupt” 1 Tim. 6:5, and “unspiritual” Col. 2:18

The natural mind thinks from a humanistic, sin-debased viewpoint. The viewpoint of the flesh directs its thoughts. The sinful mind is under the control of Satan and can never please God because it concentrates on things of the world and not things of God. The natural mind walks a path of hopelessness and self-destruction.

Are you living a life pleasing to God?
