Woman Sets Children on Fire
Here’s a story that addresses two questions. A woman in Haltom City, Texas was arrested for seting her children on fire. Apparently she put them in a closet, poured gasoline on them and set them on fire.
The first thing this addresses is that if it were true, as many people insist, that people are "basically good", then something like this couldn’t happen. Of course, when you say somebody is "basically good", it’s implying that they’re a good person… until something gives them reason not to be. Just like somebody who is "basically honest" will tell you the truth.. until it benefit’s him more to lie.
The second question this story addresses is that with things like this happening more and more Jesus’ prophecy about people’s hearts growing cold in the last days is more obviously true every day.
Matthew 24:12, "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold."
