Boston Marathon Bombing (No More Hurting People)

A year ago, a smiling 8-year old boy, Martin Richard, held up a peace sign he had made containing a hopeful message, “No More hurting People”.  In a horrendous twist of fate, this past Monday, young Martin was hurt to death near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a shrapnel laced bomb was detonated right near him.

What is the common denominator in everyone’s life that end up going to hell after they die?  It’s simple; while they lived on Earth … THEY HURT PEOPLE!  “Hurting people” comes in many forms, but each one always falls under “disobedience to one or more of God’s 10 Love Commandments”.  It’s the business man charging a price he would not want to pay, it’s the cheater stepping out on his wife, it’s the thief stealing someone’s goods, and it’s the bomber murdering his fellowman.  “Hurting people” is what sin is and does.

But in the end we must ALL face the High Court.  We must ALL go before the Big Judge! What will we say then?  What will we do when the tapes of our lives are rolling, proving while we lived on Earth … we hurt people?  And all for what we thought was our gain, but now realize was for our eternal loss!  And then the Boss says, “Step over here son, I’ve prepared some special beings who are even now biting at the chomp, waiting to hurt you, eternally!  Go on now, down there!”

There’s roughly fifteen more years left (in this 6,000 year age of sin) for people to “hurt people”, and then God is going to put a stop to it at Christ’s return.  Don’t weep for Martin, he’s in heaven!  He’s escaped the worst of what’s to come!  Weep instead for yourselves, if you’re not living right.  Then come to your senses and heed God’s message for all mankind since the dawn of time, “No More hurting People!”

With a heavy heart,


Approximately 804 Weeks (Sabbaths) Remaining Till Christ's Return!
