We cannot remain ignorant...

WARNING...VIDEOS ARE HARD TO STOMACH! PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

So, below are three videos on three issues. Each obviously has a side of the debate it comes from. Each are meant to appeal to our emotions. Shock and awe. Some would suggest that that is not fair. We should engage the mind, use arguments, data, etc. I believe all of that is true; however, I believe there is something about facing the brutal reality of a thing that is needed. I want to suggest that what ties these three issues together is expediency and disconnection. (1) We do what is expedient no matter the consequences and (2) We are disconnected from the consequences (i.e., we don't have the kill the cow ourselves or watch it).

Also, each of these issues is one that the Bible does not directly address. Nevertheless, I believe that each of these issues is a matter of morality. So the question is, why?

FOR THOSE OF US WHO DON'T THINK ABOUT OUR CONSUMPTION AND OUR WASTE, WE SHOULD KNOW WERE IT GOES...
There is a garbage swirl in the Pacific Ocean bigger than the state of Texas. There is a garbage swirl in each ocean.


FOR THOSE OF US WHO EAT MEAT, WE SHOULD KNOW WHERE IT COMES FROM...
Please don't right this off because of your feelings about the source or the narrator. Let the images stand for themselves - if you can even make it to the end.


FOR THOSE OF US WHO SUPPORT ABORTION OR ARE INDIFFERENT TO IT, SHOULD KNOW WHAT IT DOES...
I chose the shortest one because it just becomes too much.
