Okay, This Is Starting to Get Rediculous

Okay, is it just that the dead birds have us spooked, or are we really seeing a bizarre wave of animal deaths?  Here’s the latest:

People on the north coast of Labrador say scores of dead seals have been washing ashore since early December.

A conservation officer with the area’s Inuit government estimated late last week that hundreds of adult and young seals have died in the area between Hopedale and Makkovik this winter.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is testing the carcasses, but Nunatsiavut conservation officer Ian Winters said many people in the area believe DFO hasn’t acted quickly enough.

Honestly?  I don’t know.  But since I’m trying to make it a policy to only note news that I can connect to Scripture, here’s the only passage that I could find that seemed relevant:

Hear the word of the LORD, you children of Israel;
for the LORD has a charge against the inhabitants of the land:
“Indeed there is no truth,
nor goodness,
nor knowledge of God in the land.

There is cursing, lying, murder, stealing, and committing adultery;
they break boundaries, and bloodshed causes bloodshed.

Therefore the land will mourn,
and everyone who dwells therein will waste away.
all living things in her,
even the animals of the field and the birds of the sky;
yes, the fish of the sea also die.  (Hos. 4:1-3)

The description of Israel’s moral condition certainly seems to fit our society in the West, doesn’t it?  I’m not prepared to go out on the limb of declaring this to be a fulfillment of prophecy yet, so don’t take my musings too seriously right now.

Oh, and I’m sorry for the podcast delay.  I hope to have it up tomorrow night, and in the meantime, I have a post going up in the morning that I think you’ll enjoy.

Shalom.
