We are Desensitized to Sin and Human Suffering

Of the 1,189 chapters in the Bible, 250 contain the words of the prophets. That’s over 20%, near 25%. Half of what they say denounces SIN and the other half condemns those who see human SUFFERING and do nothing about it.

Yet events that horrified those same prophets take place in our world every day, and we’re immune to them. Like wearing a watch, we get used to it and after awhile we don’t even notice it.

But the prophets noticed! They never became desensitized to sin or human suffering.
