Why are we killing?

Ngobesing Romanus dreams to inspire humanity. According to himself as the CEO of Radio Evangelium Bamenda and member of the Adivsory Board of African Dream, he does it with a passion. He believes his works have positively impacted millions of people around the world. So lets hope he can inspire others to bring out the best in themselves and realize their dreams.

For him

The world is in trouble;

How shall we come out of it?

I fear for the world;

Unless something is done.

How do you see it?

and he wonders what we do.

We see wicked acts
Everyday in the world;
Innocent people suffer and die;
People’s hearts are full of evil;
This evil is expressed in evil acts;
Many do to others as they like none
To do to them;
What do we do to make the world
An excellent place for all?
My proposal:
Every day avoid evil and do good;
Call on others in one way or other
To do good and avoid evil.
Do you have some ideas,
Of what we can do,
To make the world an excellent place?
Why not share?
{What do we do?}

Like us and other Bloggers for peace, he knows the challenges and is only setting the ball rolling;

lighting the candle; hopeful that candle by candle the whole world shall one day be filled by light.

SUCCESS INSPIRERS' WORLD

If you read Is autonomy the answer by Purposive Writer, you will understand what moved me to write this poem titled:

Why are we killing others?

Why are we killing ourselves?
Why are we killing others?
Why are others killing us?
What type of hearts do we have?
Are they stone hearts or human hearts?
How do we feel when we kill another
Human being like us?
Why have we built barriers among us?
Why is geography separating us?
Why is religion making us kill?
Is a human being not a human being?
Why are some people making the world
Such a hell for others?
Why are some people forcing others
To live in permanent fear and uncertainty;
Why? Who can tell me why?
How can I hold my tears when I think that
Somewhere in the world at this moment
Someone is dying innocently in the hands
Of…

Not making yourselves abominable

In Egypt, Joseph resisted temptation to adulte...

God has always called His people to holiness:

Lev 11:43-44 The Scriptures 1998+  (43)  ‘Do not make yourselves abominable with any creeping creature that creeps, and do not make yourselves unclean with them, lest you be defiled by them.  (44)  ‘For I am יהוה  {Jehovah} your Elohim, and you shall set yourselves apart. And you shall be set-apart, for I am set-apart. And do not defile yourselves with any creeping creature that creeps on the earth.

1Pe 1:13-16 The Scriptures 1998+  (13)  Therefore, having girded up the loins of your mind, being sober, set your expectation perfectly upon the favour that is to be brought to you at the revelation of יהושע  {Jeshua} Messiah,  (14)  as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts in your ignorance,  (15)  instead, as the One who called you is set-apart, so you also should become set-apart in all behaviour,  (16)  because it has been written, “Be set-apart, for I am set-apart.”

Sanctification is a state of purity, set apart from defilement and dedicated to God and His service. This includes keeping our bodies from fornication (sexual immorality).
To do that, Jeshua calls on us to refuse the “passion of lust” that generates sexual sins and reminds us that which proceeds out of the man, that defiles the man.

Mat 5:27-29 The Scriptures 1998+  (27)  “You heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’  (28)  “But I say to you that everyone looking at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.  (29)  “And if your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. For it is better for you that one of your members perish, than for your entire body to be thrown into Gehenna.

Mar 7:18-23 The Scriptures 1998+  (18)  And He said to them, “Are you also without understanding? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside is unable to defile him,  (19)  because it does not enter his heart but his stomach,1 and is eliminated, thus purging all the foods?” Footnote: 1Mt. 15:20.  (20)  And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man.  (21)  “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil reasonings, adulteries, whorings, murders,  (22)  thefts, greedy desires, wickednesses, deceit, indecency, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.  (23)  “All these wicked matters come from within and defile a man.”

Though living in this world we should not be conformed to this world, but be transformed in the newness of our mind, so that we may demonstrate what is the will of God: what is good, and what is well-pleasing, and what is perfect.
We should be an example to others, who have to see a difference of living between us Christians and non-Christians. Many in the world can not master their feelings. We should work on it and make best efforts to gain control over our bodies by renewing our minds.

Rom 12:2 The Scriptures 1998+  (2)  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Elohim.

By living up to the renewal of our mind, that you we know experimentally what the will of God is, we can live in a pure condition according the Law of God and as such presenting ourselves to God as his worthy children, showing the world we are set apart or being holy.

Doing which is good and acceptable and perfect in the eyes of God we can use our bodies in holy ways that honour God.

Our choice to have pure love, good sanctified relationships, no escapades in our sexual and spiritual life not only honours God but shows our respect to our partner and those around us.

On the other hand, those who do not know God live to satisfy their fleshly lusts. By doing so, they dishonour themselves and God.

We as Christians are called out of sin’s defilement to be holy and pure in mind and body.
