Rioting In London. Uber-Horrific!

Have ya been watchin’ vids lately of the London Riots? Horrific huh. Have you seen this one yet? It’s basically of a group of looters who appear to be helpin’ an injured bleeding boy up, and then we see it was only to rob him. This video has accrued millions of views on YouTube so far. Makes ya think. 
People always tell me that “The heart of humans is basically good—people don’t really need a Savior. We just need to believe in ourselves.” Where does it say this and that we are to do that? It’s not in the Bible. I ask em about Hitler and the masses who were easily swayed to run whole-hearted after him in Germany knowing he hated Jews. It was a time a bit like today when the economy got difficult.
Seventy one percent of Americans say that the economy is growing worse (Fox News today). Would we never stoop to become rioters? It happens here after sporting events. Who would you run after if say ..the crowds thought it was really cool to do so? Are you brave enough to stand alone for what’s right.. or go after Christ even if no one else goes with you?
After seeing this video.. what does it kinda make you think about? It reminds me of what the Word of God says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?” (Jer. 17:9). Everyone needs to be regenerated by God’s Spirit. If there were no blunders of Adam and Eve in the Garden.. if we were all born right the first time rather than in sin, there really would be no need for us to be born again (see John 3).
