Editor, The Commercial:
May 26, 2012, there was another murder in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. What a shame. There are revivals at different churches across Pine Bluff and yet, nothing is changing. Yet every preacher says he is a reviver; if that was the case we need no reviving, because Jesus is the reviver, and if you got Jesus then what’s the problem?
The youth and younger adults are living in perilous times, and yet there’s no one that want to take the prescribed dosage of medicine. We love operating on emotions, but we have to rise above emotions and begin to realize that we have a serious problem here in Pine Bluff.
Murder and mayhem in our community isn’t just happening because no one cares; it’s designed that way. The designer had it manifested so that we as people wouldn’t survive and would be destroyed for a lack of knowledge. The devil plans, but Allah (God) is the best of planners.
Who’s putting the guns in our future generation’s hands? They have us entertained with sports and play so that we can’t use our minds to think. Some of us are sicker than others, yet we’re all sick. We’re destroying ourselves like savages.
If the word of God is rightly divided, then our condition would change and we would no longer be uncivilized, but civilized. Allah (God) says in the Bible that “My people perish for a lack of knowledge.” Which means that people have no real knowledge of Him not themselves. The man of God visited Pine Bluff; most didn’t heed the warning before destruction. Remember Jeremiah the prophet? Read it!
