Gone are the days of yesterday, or better said, yesteryear. Back in the days of the above video you would have to say that people looked a lot sweeter and had a real sense of innocence about them and also back then, people were more positive and had more positive messages in their songs and even the films all had possitive happy endings. So what has gone so sadly wrong with us all? You would have to say that slowly over the years, people have become worse and worse and what has become more and more the norm is a loss of innocence.
Is it so wrong not to be guilty of any crimes? I think we all have to remember what the word innocent means – it simply means that you are not guilty, that you didn’t commit the crime! But now somehow or other, everything has been twisted around and everyone feels they have to go along with sin and the mad thing about all of this is that nobody seems to realise just how bad things have become or just how bad they really are or: just where is all of this bad behaviour taking us? People have become like little children who just want to throw the rule book out, they just want an excuse to get away from what is right. People can take God out of the equation and say the they don’t want anything to do with religion and then you see people who do this and you see what they really mean, what they really mean is that they don’t want anything to do with what’s right or wrong, they don’t want any rules in their lives and they say they are not religious as an excuse. They blame God and refuse to look in the mirror! It would be better if they did what they said, that ok, you don’t want God but what about right and wrong, what about doing unto others as you would have them do unto you? But no, what they really mean is that they don’t want either, they just want “no rules” full stop! Their very actions expose what they really want and what they really want is to “do what thou wilt,” “do as you please,” that’s the new religion these days and people need to stop and ask themselves just how bad they have become, or better said, just how wicked they are becoming – you can’t just throw all the rules away and expect everything to turn out fine, life doesn’t work that way, God doesn’t work that way. People should be thankful that God doesn’t work that way, they should be thankful that God is a long-suffering God, they should be thankful that deep down they know this. Deep down a lot of people know that God is a just God, that He is a fair God, that He is a forgiving God – so why don’t they just stop giving God a hard time and stop giving themselves a hard time and stop giving everybody else a hard time? Surely it’s gone too far now! People have pushed their luck too much!
I can hear the boat man calling your boat in, “number whatever your number is, your time is up!” Well, you look out there at the boats these days and they’re even refusing to come in when their time is up, these really are the days that all the prophets and saints prophesied of and what can all the people do? – those that really don’t want these days, those that feel they have to separate themselves from all of this and those that feel they have to go it alone – well, they can do as this old song says – Walk on with hope in their heart, or better said, they can walk on with Love in their heart! There are three great virtues that you hear about – Faith, Hope, & Love – the greatest of these is Love! So walk on with Love in your heart and you’ll never walk alone – God is Love, Jesus is Love!
What a wonderful world it would be if all the boats came in when called!
