By now I think most people have heard about the execution style shooting of four college students, three of which were killed.

It seems anymore that senseless high profile killings like this are becoming a lot more commonplace these days.

TWO ARRESTED IN NEWARK EXECUTION SLAY

Police arrested a 15-year-old boy in the killings of three college students in a
schoolyard. A second suspect, a 31-year-old man, surrendered to police, law
enforcement officials said. Investigators said more arrests could follow.

Like most people, I don’t have any specific answers about why these things are happening, but I can say that this is the kind of thing that Jesus was talking about when he said that the love of many would grow cold because lawlessness would be abundant. (Matthew 24:12)

The thing I see about it is that it’s kind of a vicious circle.  Because there is so much Iniquity (or lawlessness), many people become cold and unloving.  This in turn means that there is a high chance of more iniquity, which will take the love out of many more people and so on.

This story and others like it, when you look at what’s happened and why, are a sure sign that we’re living in the last days.
