“THERE IS A
GREAT STATE OF EMERGENCY
TO THE SOUL OF EACH HUMAN BEING
IN THE WORLD”
“What do you consider an emergency? Do you only look at an emergency when there is physical tragedy that attacks the body? There is a real emergency in the world. The red light is flashing, the sirens are blowing, and yet so few people are concerned.
The emergency has many facets, many degrees, many areas, many divisions, and it involves the body, mind and Soul of every human being in the world. First of all, we should ask ourselves what caused this emergency. Was it a lack of intelligence, a lack of Faith, a lack of human fellowship, a lack of monetary means, a lack of understanding, a lack of perseverance?
Here are a few of the emergencies in the world: Homosexuality is definitely an emergency movement, an emergency involving perversion, immorality, and is, in every way, breaking down morale in every sense of the word. Abortion is an emergency. It is a killing. It is stealing. It is an immoral act against a living human being. It is unlimited in its indecencies, impurities, and a human being’s right to live. Another emergency that carries with it a tremendous effect on the human mind, pornography. The use of drugs is an emergency, signal and act. These are only a few of the evident emergencies.
Human need must not be ignored.
Spiritual starvation is not always recognizable.
Physical illness, hurt or pain should be helped.
Mental fears, anxieties, concerns, must be treated logically, charitably, and with loyalty.
But how do we handle the emergencies? How do we correct the emergencies and how do we solve the emergencies that are mentioned above? There is a solution. There is a way to eliminate most of these emergencies. Sound moral values, sound moral standards, talked about, written upon, shown by example, is most certainly the first step; using and teaching of self-control, self-discipline, as a standard in the home, in the companies, in the schools and in the churches.
People instinctively want to have the feeling of ‘well-being’. They want to feel hope. They want to be a part of what is right, what is good, what is sound. They want to be a part of progress. It is time we use what is right and encourage everyone to seek it, to accept it, to use it, so they will feel the results of it.
The world is a sick world. It is full of emergencies. It is time to turn the emergencies into a fruitful life, instead of a fruitless way of life. We can start tonight.”
