|Does Anyone Have An Explanation For What We're Seeing These Days by tpiah*: 3:53pm On Jan 31, 2011|
bible verses or something?
i dont understand much of it.
i'm referring to the way people are getting killed, dropping dead, etc etc.
yes, i know it's nothing new to mankind, but still disturbing nonetheless.
is it a sign of the end times, the inevitable result of something, or what's the root cause of man's inhumanity to man.
and, as Christians, how do you guard against the envy which naturally occurs when people arent doing as well as you [subjectively speaking]. Which may or may not be the result of previous lifestyle choices?

And when ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not troubled: these things must needs come to pass; but the end is not yet. 8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there shall be earthquakes in divers places; there shall be famines: these things are the beginning of travail. 9 But take ye heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in synagogues shall ye be beaten; and before governors and kings shall ye stand for my sake, for a testimony unto them. 10 And the gospel must first be preached unto all the nations.
Mark 13:7-10 (ASV)
No the end is not yet come, infact worse things will surface
i didn't understand the second phase of your question, could you pls throw more light on it?

^i asked what's to be done when say, for example, someone struggled for a while, and in the face of difficulty, eventually made something of their lives. Only to encounter others who then begin to hate on him for no other reason than because he seems to be doing better than what they expected, or better than they themselves.
now, some people [not everybody] made conscious decisions to follow lifestyles which do not give them the kind of successful outcome they want for themselves.
how is the first guy to handle the bitterness and envy coming from the second.

Water over duck's back approach. Nah, just fooling about
With the measure of grace first guy has, love the second guy, pray for the second guy . . .
and latch on strongly to these two verses which if a "christian" the first guy is likely familiar with
"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" - Matt 5:44 KJV
"But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you," - Luke 6:27
If there is constant strife, then first guy might want to consider the Abraham-Lot separate approach

true blessings comes in the midst of adversary . . . , thou preparest a table for me in the presence of my ENEMIES . . .psalm 23.
let them envy, let them gossip, just make sure ur way pleases the Lord. . .then leave the rest. Joseph was envied, so was David, Daniel and many more.

Pray for them and carry on with your life not forgetting to love them unconditionally
LET GO AND LET GOD

now, the recent case of that guy who was attacked and nearly killed over his car, for example.
he probably didnt do anything to warrant the brutality of that attack.[or did he].
so, what's to be done about the bitterness that arises from such situations eg rich vs poor.
and brings us back to the first question:
any word in season about all the unexplained deaths, random murders, etc we are currently seeing.
end times or God's judgement.
the latter phrase sounds cold, i know, because God is a loving God.
[not an invitation for bashing or bringing up countless misquoted verses of how God ordered whatever in the bible plz].
but, some churches are alledging it's God's judgement, and to many, this doesnt sound very christianly. Besides, what about the ones who died while in ministry.
