One thing men and women can do to spare the world tons of grief, is quit having babies
out of wedlock and mistreating children in the home. Gen 42.22
The world is hopeless because men have rejected God and no one is heeding His commands.
Because of that, the Lord has left man to fry in his own grease. Babies compound the problem,
because it is a sin to commit fornication and those having babies aren’t prepared to care for them.
What we see today are males and females carrying around extra problems and parents need the
word of God so they can teach the children. Eph 6.1-4.
I call on all who haven’t sin not to do so. Start coming to the mt airy church of Christ and other
faithful churches of Christ where you can get an education in the word of God and know how
you need to live in this life.

In Gen 4:9, Cain's reply to the Lord's question was. "Am I my brother's keeper?"
In other words, Cain was telling God, "it's none of my business where he is, or what he is
doing." This was the origin of, "I don't want to get involved." This attitude is still being
practice, and that is why a man did nothing, after seeing a little girl being murdered in
a casino bathroom several years ago. In the last tv episode of Seinfeld, the four stars were
sent to prison for not helping a man who was being robbed.
They felt it wasn't their problem so why concern themselves? Though the TV program was
fictional, it still showed a strong message. The bible teaches people to care and not be like the
two guys who refused to help a injured man as he lay in the road. Lk 10:30-37. Ezk 3:16-21.
1 Sam 3:13. Pro 21:13. Deut 22:1-4. Gal 6:1-2. Matt 25:26-28. 1 Cor 10:24.
This lesson isn't teaching one to play superhero rush up and fight an armed thug.
But there is something we can do. We can call the police or provide some other type of information,
publicly or anonymously. We must take the time to cheer the sad, give food to the hungry, visit the sick.
etc. Gal 6:10. Jas 4:17. Jas 1:27. 1 Tim 5:9-10. Acts 9:36-43.

Have you examined the number of networks available for viewing or streaming?
What a long way, we have come from having only three networks, ABC, NBC,
and CBS? But now we have enough stuff around to keep one busy online forever.
Bad thing about all this technology is that it leaves no time for people to study the scriptures.
People will always be online looking up this and looking up that, and binge watching this and
binge watching that, they will have a perpetual supply of online streaming material to veiw and
the Bible will sit on the table and gather dust and never be looked at.
Technology is good but it can also become a tool of the Devil. Satan can use technology to draw
men away from prayer and bible study and that's where it goes too far. We are not against the networks
and technology, but we want to issue a warning. “Only consume so much and let the rest go.”
One cannot consume everything for it’s too much. If you try, you'll never do any praying you'll never do
any studying of the scripture. The bible teaches, “lest Satan take advantage of us, let us not be ignorant
of his tactics”. 2 Cor 2.11.

The vulnerable are easy prey for human predators who take advantage of the weak.
Anyone who would prey upon an innocent human who cannot fend for himself is a monster.
2 Samuel 11:1-6. We have seen evil people who are supposed to be guardians of someone welfare;
take advantage by stealing money that was meant for their care. Proverbs 22:22-23. Ecclesiastes 4:1.
The vulnerable need our help. The blind, the elderly, the maimed, the autistic person, the widowed,
the fatherless, the orphans, etc.
Will someone step up and help a person with disabilities who cannot make it without assistance?
Psalms 119:122. James 1:27. Romans 15:1. Thessalonians 5:14. 1 Timothy 5:10.
Psalms 22:23-24. Exodus 22:21-27. Isaiah 1:17. Psalms 10:17-18.
