My main reason for writing this post is to expose the evil. To shine light into the darkness. Our society and culture is being transformed by a wicked and satanic influence. Young gullible people are eating it up! I am posting many photographs in this article. A few of which may be offensive to some. However, I have tried to keep it as clean as possible and still get the point across. Just a warning before you go any further.
Miley Cyrus has been the main topic in many news organizations. You cannot look at a news media web page without seeing her there. She is after attention for some reason and she is sure getting it! But why? What is her motive behind all of the lusty and crude behavior?
Whatever happened to that cute little girl, Hannah Montana? So many young girls looked up to her. She inspired many of these girls to follow her. Then she became a young adult and seemed to have changed overnight. Literally overnight!
(NaturalNews) They are supposed to be in the “Golden Years” of their lives, enjoying the fruits of their lifelong labors and living out their remaining years in relaxing happiness. But sadly, for an increasing number of baby boomers, chronic illness capped with depression have led many to suicide.
Take the case of Michael Kelly, a 65-year-old Vietnam veteran who, in the waning hours of Dec. 24, 2011, walked into his darkened back yard near Sacramento High School and hanged himself from a beam on the deck.
“I just relive it in my head,” says his widow, Cathy Kelly, of her husband, who suffered from bipolar disease and post-traumatic stress disorder. She was separated from Michael when he killed himself.
“I know the dark hole of being really low. How sad he must have felt walking out there in the dark,” she told the Sacramento Bee newspaper. “That’s what I think about most.”
Few answers yet
Per the newspaper:
Although experts have long thought of midlife as a time of stability and emotional contentment, baby boomers are proving to be an unfortunate exception. Reversing a longtime demographic trend, midlife suicides are on the rise for the generation born between 1946 and 1964.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the suicide rate for people in this age group has risen in recent years by nearly 30 percent. In the decade ending in 2010, the same time period, people 85 and older – the demographic most likely to kill themselves, traditionally – has fallen by 12 percent, the CDC says.
The agency says that for the entire U.S. population the rate of suicide was 12.4 per 100,000, but that for the 45-54 age group the figure is 19.6 per 100,000 in 2010 and 55-64, the rate was 17.5 per 100,000.
‘It’s time for us to figure out what’s going on’
“Historically, people in this middle-aged group have had flat rates of suicide,” Julie Phillips, the Rutgers University social demographer whose research helped identify the trend, told the SacBee. “After 50 to 60 years of data, to see this spike for this generation, it’s time for us to figure out what’s going on.”
For now, however, suicide experts and other researchers don’t have a lot of answers, only theories as to why the middle years have become more prone to suicide.
“We don’t really know, but the increase in this middle-aged group is thought to be in part because of the economy,” Paula Clayton, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention medical director, said. “It’s always been known that during a period of unemployment, there are higher rates of suicide. That was even clear in the 1920s.”
Higher rates of unemployment and a concurrent lack of medical coverage could be leading some to refrain from seeking help for depression.
“With the instability in the economy and the housing market, we’ve noticed a lot of people calling the crisis line with anxiety, depression and sometimes suicidal ideation,” said Diane Sommers, executive director of the Suicide Prevention of Yolo County crisis line.
As bad as it sounds, there are solutions to depression – natural ones, at that
There are a number of things that can cause the kind of depression that can eventually lead someone to choose suicide: living with pain; being diagnosed with a new, debilitating disease; the side effects of depression medication.
And while we here at NaturalNews are as mystified as researchers as to the increased levels of suicide among baby boomers, we are prepared to offer some solutions:
Five great herbs for fighting depression. Rhodiola rosea (Crassulaceae); St. John’s Wort; Camu Camu; Maca; and Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) have all been found to reduce depression because they contain powerful antidepressant compounds and nutrients.
Get off the couch. Exercise has been clinically proven to reduce depression through the creation of an overall sense of wellness.
Omega-3. Add some omega-3 fatty acid to your diet daily. They modify brain chemistry and combat depression. Sources of omega-3 include fatty fish, hemp seeds and oil, chia seeds, walnuts, grass-fed meats and butter, and pastured eggs). Even the government says so: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15907142.
Get out of the house. Keep off the social media websites and actually get out of the house more often. Mingle. Visit places. Travel. Meet new people. You’ll feel better because you won’t feel so lonely and isolated.
Commentary by: Gordon King
I believe that medical doctors have a place in treating depression. Medications can absolutely help with the symptoms. With that being said, one must work on the problem and solution. That is where God comes into play. By accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you can give him your problems and let him give you peace and comfort. Does that mean you will never have any problems? No. Does that mean you will never have to deal with them? No. What it does mean is that God will be with you every step of the way. He will give you peace and comfort in difficult times. He will help you solve your problems. God is love, light, truth, peace, comfort and is almighty. He created you, he can surely help you. Don’t think that you can make it on your own with just medication. That is only putting a band-aide on the wound. Take care of what is causing the wound. Let God help you!
Ray Comfort confronts unbelief of ‘Titanic’ filmmaker
For many years, film producer James Cameron (of “Titanic” fame, among other blockbusters) was a closet atheist, hiding as an “agnostic” from the real world of atheism.
The word “agnostic” comes from the Greek word agnōstos, which means “unknown, unknowable,” and has grown to mean that someone doesn’t know if God’s exists. An agnostic is like a man who looks at the finished production of a major motion picture, but he’s not sure if there was a producer. It may have been caused by an explosion in some studio a long time ago, or it may have had a producer, but he’s not sure.
But James Cameron didn’t feel comfortable with just being an agnostic. He called it “cowardly atheism.”
One day he decided to take courage, and so he said, “I’ve sworn off agnosticism, which I now call cowardly atheism. I’ve come to the position that in the complete absence of any supporting data whatsoever for the persistence of the individual in some spiritual form, it is necessary to operate under the provisional conclusion that there is no afterlife and then be ready to amend that if I find out otherwise.”
James Cameron is no longer in doubt about the existence of God, because one day he took a leap of faith from agnosticism (not knowing if God exists) into the world of atheism (“a disbelief in the existence of deity”). The doubt went and conclusive faith came because of “a complete absence of any supporting data whatsoever.” That led him to his “provisional” conclusion. He has made no provision for the existence of God, and he won’t make any provision until he finds otherwise.
That sounds vaguely familiar. Designers of a large ship many years ago were so sure that it couldn’t sink that they made no provision for such a disaster. They had so much faith in themselves and their design of the ocean liner, that they hardly gave the need for lifeboats a second thought. You would think that if anyone learned a lesson from such pride-filled arrogance, it would be James Cameron.
The overconfidence of the Titanic designers wasn’t amendable. They couldn’t fix the problem of the sinking ship after it struck the iceberg. It was too late because there was no second chance. When they called for help, none came.
Imagine being on the Southampton dock back on April 10, 1912, knowing that five days later the unsinkable Titanic would sink like a rock. It would go to the bottom of the icy ocean, taking with it 1,502 precious human lives. If you had foreknowledge of the disaster, what would you say to the passengers as they excitedly boarded the ship? You couldn’t remain silent. Such is the plight of the Christian. We can’t remain silent because we know what the future holds.
There is sure hope for those who humble themselves in this life, repent and trust alone in Jesus, but once we sink into the icy waters of death, there’s no second chance. If we die in our sins, we will get justice from a holy Creator, and there isn’t a hope in hell.
Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.”
“Condemned” means just what it says, and “saved” means what it says.
The bible tells us that the only way to receive eternal life and not eternal damnation is through Jesus Christ!
John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son. That whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
1 Thessalonians 5:9 “For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him.”
The world is now witnessing bible prophecy daily. We see wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes in diverse places, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, famine, diseases and death all around us. People are becoming more evil than good. They are hardening their hearts and turning away from God. They are lovers of pleasure, money, lust and the things of this world. They do not see the error of their ways.
What is happening to our world? Nothing seems to make sense anymore. What used to be right is wrong and what was wrong is right! Does anybody else notice this phenomenon taking place? A majority of people it seems, are in favor of evil ways and doings. Abortion is just a normal part of life. Amazing isn’t it? The taking of a precious human life is just a daily practice. Abortion is murder, the murder of the most innocent of God’s creation.
What about sexual pleasures? Sex is everywhere, just a normal part of our daily lives. It surrounds us. It seems to be expected as we turn every corner. When we turn on the television, open a magazine or walk down the street. You just cannot get away from it. We are living in a world of hedonism. Not that sex is a bad thing. On the contrary, it is a very beautiful thing in the right context.
Homosexuality has become rampant in our society. Most of the world has accepted homosexuality as an alternate lifestyle. Television shows are introducing homosexuals and their families as normal. Laws are being passed that promote same sex marriage. It is not “politically correct” to state that homosexuality is wrong or that you are against it. You are labeled as a hater and “homophobic”. I am not homophobic. I love people. All people. What I do hate is what God says is wrong and evil.
Violence seems to be escalating quite rapidly. Every single day you see it or hear about it. Just open up the paper, look at the internet or turn on the television. It is everywhere. I am not speaking of wars and riots. I am talking about violence within our own communities. People are being slain, murdered and tortured all around us. Open the paper and you will most likely find an article about someone who has been viciously attacked or murdered. I mean severely. People being decapitated, or tortured in unimaginable ways. Children are being murdered it seems daily.
Another sign of the times pointing to the last days is the increase of knowledge. The bible says that knowledge shall be increased in the end times. Look at all of the knowledge you are getting just by reading this one website. The internet is a definite sign. We can obtain knowledge in an instant on almost any topic we desire. We are also able to communicate instantly with anyone on the planet. Skype has allowed us to not only speak to others but see them as well! Almost like being in the same room with them.
What about transportation? The bible also says that people will travel to and fro in the end times. Is this occuring now? Of course it is. We have planes, trains, automobiles, boats and buses. Not only do we have all of these forms of transportation, but they have become faster. Cars, trains and planes have all become faster. We are able to travel anywhere in the world in a matter of hours.
It’s happening now folks. The signs are all around us. Many shall be deceived. Don’t let it be you! Accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. Don’t wait til the last minute. The time is close for Jesus to return.
God Bless you! 🙂
