the world we live in: how long can we endure? . "*Global Conditions

A picture of this time begins to emerge when continuing to read Genesis 6: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (vs. 5).

Every imagination of the thoughts of men’s hearts was evil continually. How did it get that bad?

Before the Flood, people lived for many centuries. The first man, Adam, lived for 930 years (5:5), which was a decade or two past the standard lifespan of the time.

Try to wrap your mind around living almost an entire millennium. Imagine if a person had 900 years to learn something like playing the violin. He could eventually reach and exceed what is considered a virtuoso level today.

As each person honed new skills, it was not done in a vacuum. They collaborated with others to speed the learning process. Notice: “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them” (6:1).

The original Hebrew word translated “to multiply” means “increase” and “to multiply by the myriad,” according to Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.

In other words, the Earth experienced a massive population explosion. Due to their extended lifespans, the number of people could have grown to between five billion and 17 billion by Noah’s time. Knowledge and technology also rapidly increased in the 1,656 years from Creation to the Flood. Mankind built cities (4:17), had cattle ranches (vs. 20), composed and played music (vs. 21), and discovered metallurgy, including how to make alloys such as brass (vs. 22).

While each man had about 900 years to perfect various crafts, he also had the same amount of time to develop wrong attitudes and habits.

What someone thinks and does becomes part of his character. Just as a person could have become incredibly skilled at metallurgy during that time, he also could have perfected the art of lying, cheating and stealing. Even after just a few hundred years, man would have become incredibly wicked. And, again, there are estimated to have been billions of people like this!

Those alive at the time knew how to work with metals—for both good and bad purposes. This included the development of weapons such as swords and spears. Coupled with a crowded globe, this is what resulted: “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence” (Gen. 6:11).

This is the world that the Creator looked upon and said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repents [grieves] Me that I have made them” (6:7).

Yet there was one person who stood out: “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord” (vs. 8).

Noah lived a completely different way of life from those around him—one that had been known from the day Adam and Eve were created.*

The law-abiding person is now at risk of even conducting everyday business (church, school, banking, work, recreation/club, sports etc) ......... What is wrong when our civil liberties are taken away from us??? ............ this is surely a sign that our normal civil/social norms are at serious risk in our country especially Nassau ........... who is going to restore normalcy???

Often the amount that can be withdrawn is minimal, there is a daily maximum and sometimes your balance is way less that the daily maximum anyway

this seems to be a pattern now, there was a near fatal incident less than one month ago:

For years, i have avoided going to ATMs when the bank is closed and there is no traffic in the vicinity.

when the bank is open, there are security guards, so it is harder for someone to stalk the vicinity.

also i use my atm cards for most things, food store, bill paying, except the gas station, but i may actually try to use the machine as the gas station. Somehow i do not think the machine at the gas station is secure.

many merchants nowadays accept credit cards for amounts less than twenty dollars.

if you notice, many of the cash for gold outlets are now closed. people just stopped wearing jewelry, and so the business dried up. looks like the gold rush is over.

The country needs to appoint a no nonsense crime zsar who will be ruthless in eliminating the armed scum that have stolen the quality of life from hard working, decent, law abiding Bahamians. This crime zsar must have the support of both the main political parties and cannot be a Bahamian. The country will have to support him in introducing measures that will infringe civil liberties. That should not be a problem because our civil liberties are already being infringed upon if we cannot withdraw money from an ATM without some armed thug with the social development of an amoeba accosting us and taking our money and in tragic cases like this, our life. We cannot hope to win this war with an aging gynecologist in charge of national security. The PLP has no clue what to do so let's bring in someone who does and is not straight jacketed by party politics.

Remember that people here even refuse national identity cards. the populace will never trust any government enough to give up civil rights. And rightly so.

the man who steals the gold chains on the streets is an equal opportunity criminal, he will steal from anyone with a gold chain.

giving up civil rights to a bureaucracy will result in injustice.

Comrades I am bothered when the pulpit is used to fill the benches with congregations who will turn on a dime if they find out you are gay different. Are these not the same hateful for gays people who will walk over the blood of a shooting victim while their voices go silent against the criminal actions of the shooter. Aren't these the same people who's sins are defined by Jesus as anything they might never want to do - themselves - at least for others to see and talks about?
I have seen with my own eyes some the same gay haters at the ATM machines on a Sunday, while they're withdrawing cash to go play the damn numbers - before and after morning church services? Later to leave child alone in the car while they go inside play the numbers?
Guess what, lots them more fancy pulpits were constructed by numbers man's donations?
Seriously, Jesus you does needs give these people a christian makeover. Comrades I am damn sure that before the ATM's blood had been cleaned up, some these same people had walked over it, without a thought how it got there?
Comrades you better believe it. Gays, nor marijuana smokers are not out there shooting ATM customers.
Sin shouldn't be conditional upon if the churches pulpits are numbers funded?

.............................. Don't Panic, PLP & FNM Are In Absolute Control ...............................

FNM national security minister Tommy T passed the torch onto PLP national security Bernard Nottage.

Neither one has done jack squat about crime with the exception of strutting around with their faces all screwed up like somebody just raped them without KY-Jelly!

Little emperor one man band Hubert Alexander Ingraham is the true architect of the current crime wave since he cut a secret deal with the Mosko's to change bail laws to allow John Mosko out on bail for murder, which led to the current situation of repeat murderers being out on bail committing more murder, crime and mayhem.

Dancing loser Perry Christie obviously is in on the deal, so he can't reverse the flawed bail act and risk exposure of bribery and corruption.

Solution?....Get rid of both corrupt parties that has for decades routinely sold our country and people out to enrich themselves and replace these good for nought pirates with ANYBODY not connected to the friends, family and lovers cartel!
