Violence in South Africa – Disturbing and Dangerous Developments
Editorial Comment: News outlets continue to report disturbing, difficult and dangerous conditions in South Africa. The violence, looting, destruction and murder is breathtaking in it’s scope. These are stories that could also be coming to the United States, and in fact, we saw some of this in the riots and looting, the massive property damage, and the injuries and deaths caused by lawlessness last summer.
Pray for all the people of South Africa. Pray for all the people of the United States. Pray for all the liberty loving, freedom seeking people of the world who long also for peace, but are facing civil unrest and even potentially civil war.
