A Wal-Mart employee getting trampled to death in New York (HT: Leslie Carbone) and two getting shot at a Toys R Us in California proves the doctrine of the depravity of man. I can’t stand Black Friday as it is. It certainly brings out the worst in people. This reminds me of a couple of verses in James:
What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask,(James 4:1-2, ESV).
