The Wrecks of the Costa Concordia and the Titanic had one Thing in Common
by Moody Adams The wreck of the Costa Concordia and the Titanic had one thing in common. Passengers on both suffered from a false sense of security.
This was worse in the sense they knew the rocks were there, the crew of the Titanic did not know the iceburg was in their path.
Both’s passengers ate, drank and danced their way to death, thinking they were on a supremely safe ship.
It was unthinkable to anyone aboard the Costa Concordia that it could have gone down. Why they were not required to give disaster instructions to the passengers for up to 24 hours. This disaster came three hours out of Rome’s port.
It was time to eat. Everybody aboard was on an exciting trip. And what could possibly happen to this giant of the sea which was longer than three football fields?
Passengers on the Titanic played games with pieces of the iceburg that had ripped it open. Passengers on the Costa Concordia were told to stay in the cabin while they fixed an electrical problem.
Then in an instant horror struck. Death overtook them in a very safe situation.
As the Bible says regarding Jesus Christ's coming, “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child ; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3). There is no security on land or sea, except in the arms of Jesus Christ.
