1910 US good ole days. Population about 100 million, 6 percent graduate high school, 20 percent cannot read, but for the entire nation that year we only had 230 murders. To equal that today based on current population, the entire number of people murdered in 2012 cannot exceed 700. Chicago alone, had about 530 murders. US has about 12,000 murders a year. So Pastor what did the people do in 1910 that we fail to do in 2013? Maybe one of the problems is churches today do not teach God words and adhere to the Bible and require those who attend church to do the same!
I don’t think there was AIDS or illegal immigrant crime back then either.
Disturbing thing is, one may attend church now, and learn that sin (sodomy) and crime (illegal immigration) is OK. Begs the question, why go to church, when you can get the same schpeel on MSNBC?
How good was crime statistic keeping in those days?
It was better once overall by a longshot...
Loss of faith in God is the primary culprit
