This time last year, we wrote about hit and run drivers, and we now look back to see if things have gotten better. But unfortunately the answer is no! Hit and run events have been in the news from South Jersey to Northern Montgomery county. People just seem intent to continue this evil. So here is the article we printed last year and it is still correct today.
Why has Philadelphia had so many hit and run car accidents recently? Two young girls ran over and were left lying in the streets like trash! Is human life worth the same as road kill? A hit and run driver will go to Hell if no repentance is done (Luke 13:3; Matthew 25:41-46). Burning in hell forever is horrible, and the driver will regret it (Revelation 20:10, 21:8; Mark 9:42-48; Matt. 13:49-50).
In order to repent, a driver must turn himself in and accept whatever consequences await him. And people shouldn’t be doing foolish things like not paying attention to the road, driving drunk, eating, texting, or talking on phones, and driving at high speeds, which make stopping impossible. People need to wise up and not put themselves in situations that they will be wrong—thus resulting in flight trying to escape punishment that is due them (Proverbs 11:5; Galatians 6:7-8; Colossians 3:25).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
