  1. I am not sure I agree with this, rather I consider the reciprocal; when evil wants to consume goodness and leave nothing but despair, wicked rulers attack nations.

    • Consider the desire of the Hebrew nation: 1 Samuel 8:6-7 “But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king.” With the advent of each election period & year where we refuse to accept God into our hearts, nation, and schools – we are, in-fact, rejecting God as our king, as well. Hence, God yields this nation, as a whole, over to an evil ruler and to “…a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.” Romans 1:28 By hardening our hearts to God, we have sentenced ourselves to our own doom. Christians, as a whole, do not do enough to promote the kingdom of God & the furtherance of His word! IMHO

      • Thank you for such a well spoken reply but what say you of God’s promise to Abraham in Genesis 18:22-33 that God would spare the wicked in Gomorrah for the sake of 10 innocent people? And though none of use can compare to the innocence of Christ, but if we earnestly strive to emulate the living word, then God’s compassion for 10 innocent lives would not be punished on the same level of the wicked because evil has had its reign?

      • My friend, thank you for your kind words, they are much appreciated! In Gen 19:12-Gen 19:13 the righteous of the town are warned to leave the town. God kept His word; unfortunately, for Sodom & Gomorrah, the evil of the people was so great it needed to be punished and eradicated. Those who were so attached to the past and what they possessed (Lot’s wife) turned to look back only to be adjudicated and turned into a pillar of salt. God is the God of second, third, etc. chances for all this world. (This is depicted best in the Book of Jonah, where Jonah is shown (eventually) the error of his way of thinking (i.e., toward the Ninevites). All we can do is try, look at the life of King David: he was a murderer, adulterer, and a liar. The reason, IMHO, that he was the apple of God’s eye was the fact that when he realized he did what was wrong in God’s sight he sought to make amends and was truly & heartfelt repentant. He was far from perfect. If God can forgive and yield another chance to David and the Ninevites – that leaves great promise for people like you and I! Godspeed my friend!
