London Riots

London was a ticking time bomb that finally exploded in violent riots and we do not know what the fallout will be.  In fact, who’s to say it will end?  Other ticking time bombs were Cairo during this year’s “Arab Spring”, and currently Syria.

When people are fed up, they will find a way to vent their anger and it won’t be civil.

That same ticking sound can be heard here, if we listen real carefully, in the Good Ol’ US of A.  When Americans get tired, we too may see Washington, DC and New York City catch fire too.  Remember Watts, Detroit, and Newark in the 1960s?  Miami-Dade in 1980?  Or Watts again in 1992?  How about the anti-World Trade Organization riots in Seattle in 1999 which shut the city down?  Before we get too cocky and say, “We’re Americans,” “This is a Christian, law-abiding nation,” please understand that won’t matter.  Our flag-waving, “we’re number one”, “God bless America” won’t do shit.

The clock’s still ticking, and the bomb will explode in America.  And God help us when it does.


(Pray for) Peace.

About dangerouschristian

My name is Victor Reynolds. I'm a Christian who desires a more mystical approach to my spiritual life. I'm also a photographer as well who loves to create. I call myself "dangerous" because anyone-especially a Christian-who dares to be beyond the "norm" and allows to let the Christ live in them is dangerous.
