I should write a book on Ironic Things that Make Me Say Hmmmm.
Isn’t it ironic that Casey Anthony is on trial for murdering her daughter, (and she should be) yet every day 4,500 mothers murder their babies by abortion and the laws of our land not only condone it but prosecute those who try to stop this evil? Hmmmm? God will be the final Judge.
Isn’t it ironic that America is “the land of the free,” yet we lock up about ten times more people per capita than just about every other country? America has 5% of the world’s population yet has 25% of the world’s prisoners. Crime needs to be punished but God’s Word never calls for prison. Hmmmm? Yathink there may be a bigger picture we need to look at?
Isn’t it ironic that when Congress tries to pass laws like HR 1475 to cut prison time to 65% for non-violent offenders, and HR 223 to cut time to 50% for first-time, non-violent offenders over age 45, that the biggest force OPPOSING these laws being passed is the same group that PROFITS the most from the prison system—the Justice Department, or the “Just Ice Department” and federal employees? Hmmmmm?
Isn’t it ironic that God created a perfect world, gave man freedom to choose and after man chose to sin, God still loved him? In spite of our sin, God still loves us and wants to use us to further His kingdom! Hmmmmm?
Isn’t it ironic that the most fun thing to do in the entire world, leading others to Christ, is the one least done by God’s children? Friday, as I led Eric to Christ here in the prison, the same joy flooded my soul that flooded it in the tent at the Heart of Illinois Fair in 1969 when I led my first soul to Jesus Christ. I don’t understand why so many of God’s children are more worried about who hits a ball into a hole in the dirt than if their neighbors go to Hell for eternity. Hmmmmm?
I hope you enjoy your freedom this Fourth of July! Please pray I can get mine back.
What on earth are you doing for Heaven’s sake? Hmmmmm?
