What a tragedy!
"Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good." Ec 9:18.
The recent train accident in the Midwest which killed several people and injured many others is a perfect example of sin's effect upon all. The driver of the truck had his license suspended three times previously due to speeding. This was a very foolish and dangerous thing to be doing, especially when those big trucks carry so much weight. Yet the man was persistent in driving anyway. He persisted to be on the road. Sin has no regard for anyone but itself. It never looks beyond it's own immediate benefits. It never regards the danger it places others in, until it's too late, until the damage is done.
Adam and Eve did not think through the consequences of their actions either. They were blinded in their mad dash through their selfish lust toward the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and sinning thereby, crossing the tracks of all of humanity, and derailing the human race to plunder them into sin, ruin and destruction, until it was too late.
I'm sure, unless that truck driver is reprobate in his conscience, he is sitting behind bars, stunned at the reality of his actions and the consequence of his obstinacy.
All the pain. All the death. What does it take?
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
