IS ALL HOPE LOST?

Hey bud, as I have done many times before, I feel the need to again apologize for what I and others of my generation have done to you. We have failed you and your friends.
 
We have obviously let things slide and were more concerned about ourselves than what was transpiring in this country. We let things get to the point where they are now. This craziness that we see in real life and read in the news every day didn’t just start out of thin air.
 
We knew your teachers and professors were spreading opinions instead of facts. We knew getting a divorce, not letting you see your other parent, and not teaching you the Bible would affect you. We knew killing hundreds of thousands of unborn children would change the dynamic of our world. We knew all this was coming, but we took the easy way out and ignored it.
 
Son, there is no way that most kids in your generation and beyond will have a better America than we did. There is no way that love will ever trump hate again in this nation. Instead, we have taught you how to be indifferent. We have taught you that not agreeing with someone gives you an absolute right to shut them down and not listen. We taught you how to act and what to say to get your way. We taught you that hate is normal.
 
There is only one way we can make up for what we have done. There is only one thing that will bring back hope to you and your friends. It’s the only thing that keeps me from going berserk. We can prepare you for what you face by showing you what the end looks like and teaching you how to deal with it.
 
For most, unfortunately, the end is not a pretty picture. Chaos in the streets, fear, and the loss of our so called American freedom. Most will live life in a bubble, afraid to even leave the house. The good news is that you have the Bible to help you through. The Bible talks a lot about what will happen in the last days, but it also teaches us what we can do to prepare for it.
 
It’s simple, put your trust in God. Make him #1 in your life and study His words of advice every day. Pray constantly and ask Him for help. If you do this, God will not always save you “from” the craziness of the world, but he will save you “in” it. You won’t be able to avoid it all, but you will be free from it all. You won’t have hope for this world, but you will have the hope of the next one.
 
You know me, I am not Mr. doom and gloom, I am just very concerned at what is happening out there. I am convinced we are living in the last days, but also know things will get much worse before this world is gone. How do I know? It’s in the Bible.
 
For those of us who are saved and believe in the words in that great book, we have eternity without wars, without hate, and abounding in love to look forward to. This is what will get you through. It won’t be easy, but at least you will be equipped to handle it.
 
Love you son, good luck!
 
Dad
2 Timothy 3:1-4: But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—
