I have been attempting for a week now to write about something I realized in Sunday school last week. What I realized is that the troubles the world are experiencing are the result of moral decay of society. Hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, wars, tsunamis, terrorist activity, and market instability all due to moral decline. As the events of this week transpired, mostly market unrest. The basic cause of this is moral decline. While I don’t think I am a prophet, I due believe I can have a voice in warning people to pay attentions to the signs.
In last weeks Sunday school the topic discussed was chapters 8-11 of 3rd Nephi. It was brought up that all the calamity that befell the Nephites that had been prophesied by Samuel the Lamanite(check out Helman 14).
The instructor leading the discussion asked how does this relate to our day? I realized that the world is now facing problems, like the peoples of old, that are a result of people disregarding the commandments. I believe many have seen this and already realized it before.
However, I want to right this as a testament to my posterity that I recognized the signs of the times.
I think I am going to start a category called signs of the times and as I observe things that I believe are signs of the times I will add them to my blog.
