Blog note: Jesus indicated that one (of many) signs of the end times or the end of the age grace would be that love for one another would grow cold. Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” This can also be interpreted that lawlessness will abound. This includes violence, murder, terrorism, shootings, knife attacks, car/van attacks, chemical attacks and other similar acts of destructive and evil behavior. Yes, these things have occurred in time past. But consider the frequency, intensity and devastation of these types of attacks and mass school shootings. They are like birth pangs in frequency and intensity. This is just one part of the CONVERGENCE or CONVERGING of signs. End of note.
6 people beat, poured scalding water on boy, 3, at New Jersey house, officials say

A 3-year-old boy was “severely” beaten and abused — including being burned with scalding water — by six adults, in a consistent and coordinated form of punishment, New Jersey officials said.
Patricia Gamarra, 62, Mary Buchan, 55, Patricia Buchan, 28, Bridget Buchan, 23, Natacha Smith, 43, and Homer Searcy, 39, were arrested and charged with aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of the toddler, Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement Wednesday.
Smith is the 3-year-old boy’s mother, though it’s unclear if the five others have any relation to the child. The six people were living in the home in Newark, about 9 miles from New York City. They allegedly beat the toddler with their fists and belts and poured scalding water on him “as a form of corporal punishment.”
Authorities did not reveal what information led them to investigate the house of horror.
The six people are being held at the Essex County Correctional Facility and expected to make their first court appearance on Thursday.
It’s unclear what the child’s condition was as of Wednesday.
