All of this and we wonder why we have a soldier going on a rampage shooting fellow soldiers? We have turned our backs on God and we wonder what is happening to our country? Whether it be military or civilian, our country is in deep, deep, trouble. God punished Judah for her wickedness and we are no better.
Why should we be surprised when bad things happen in our country? I will be chastised for what I am saying, but Jeremiah also went through persecution for his warnings to Judah. People of faith are being demonized, but they are on God’s side. We will not survive unless there is a great turnaround and repentance on the part of our government leaders and a return to faith and put God back where he belongs in our country. Unfortunately, I am not too encouraged this will ever take place. I personally believe it will only get worse. I do not see a silver lining ahead for America. However, I know God is still in control of this world and America and his judgments on our nation will prevail.

Drs. cannot get live hearts from cadavers
If you are an organ donor, your life may be at risk. If you have ever heard the term “brain dead,” you might not know that it doesn’t mean you are dead. No one pronounced “brain dead” is ever dead; they are still a living soul, alive. There are many documented cases of people who have been pronounced “brain dead” who have recovered.
To successfully harvest organs to be transplanted, they have to come from a body that is alive. For example, the last thing doctors observe when they harvest a heart is that it is still beating. It is impossible for doctors to get a beating heart from a cadaver, so there is no death until they remove that heart.
