Blood diamonds are not for good people
A truly good person will not desire worthless pleasures in life. Only vile people will indulge themselves and others in luxuries which come from illegal activities. One such greatly immoral thing is the buying and selling of blood diamonds. Because blood diamonds are obtained through forced labor or might I rather say slavery. And often this involves the murder of these slaves in the due course of time. A conservative estimate of the people killed for this would be tens of thousands. Both men and women are used as slaves at gun or knife point. Also children are given the worst treatment and some are brainwashed into turning into murderer’s for the blood diamond traders. This still goes on in certain African countries and is a scourge for them. I won’t be surprised if stuff like this happens outside of Africa too but God knows best. May the Lord expose all such works wherever this happens on Earth and provoke zealous people to be his sword of judgement on the enslavers!
Pray that such the oppressed are set free and their oppressor’s are stopped for good. It’s a well known fact that these blood diamonds despite being banned still get smuggled into a number of European countries. So it doesn’t matter whether you like diamonds or not, instead this is about not condoning such wickedness. Pray that the people who are sponsoring blood diamond trade realize the errors of their way and repent because it’s too late.
The hand of justice won’t be forever stopped, no matter what tricks people do to manipulate the law. It will prevail strongly and more so in the after life! Each one of them will be judged and never be sent to heaven due to their unwillingness to repent in their lifetime. Refusal to accept the Gospel and live it will be their own fault. They cannot give God any of their excuses to make them a law unto themselves. God will prevail over their own words every time
Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy. (Proverbs 31:8-9)
One must never let such activities be given the blind eye. Being permissive about blood diamonds despite knowing that people are enslaved to dig out diamonds in deadly conditions is a sure sign of apostasy! Do not set yourself for damnation by buying or selling blood diamonds. You still have the choice to do what is right. There are diamond’s which are obtained ethically and legally, opt for such diamonds instead. So always insist you get a lawfully obtained diamond without murder and blood shed, if ever you need a diamond later on in life. If in doubt of the origins of the diamond then don’t buy it. Instead check elsewhere and buy accordingly.
Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.(Isaiah 1:17)
