That's very true, and it is sad/bad for these Goodyear workers and their families, as well as the surrounding areas, for taxes will go up and available jobs may be hard to find. The effect will be felt by many when the plant closes the doors.

But, judgment begins in the house of God, not in the White House, and the changes that are to be made. It begins with "God's people" repenting, and calling on His name, turning from wicked ways.
Yes, even God's people can have "wicked" ways, and need to seek His face and humble themselves, calling on His name.

There are a remnant of people in every nation who love the Lord God with all their heart and who serve Him, in spite of those who have turned their backs on Him and gone the way of the world. God is with them, and regardless of what comes their way, He will see them through. Many workers at Goodyear are part of the remnant, and God hasn't turned His back upon them just because a plant closes, or the economy fails.

The Great Depression was a trying time for those before us, but people stuck together and made it through hard times, with many who served God knowing their hope wasn't in the government or the economy, but in their Maker.

Times will get hard as evil men wax worse in these last days, but those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits. They will make it in His strength and power, as He is Jehovah Jirah, the Provider, for those who trust in Him.

We can't blame God for the greed of men, and Goodyear evidently had time run out for it in Union City, as to its usefulness to corporate, as a big money maker, one that must be competitive, and to serve their purposes, or else..... It wasn't about the worker, but the "work" for those who pulled the strings.

Many of these workers will leave with permanent injuries sustained while in the employment of this plant. Many are aged and work will be hard for them to find. Many have several mouths to feed and unemployment doesn't provide enough to meet all their needs for their monthly bills. Some have lived above their means and may lose possessions.
Some have used part of their income to help God's work go forward, and with no regrets. God has not forsaken His own, or turned his back on them.

It's sad for all but as we go forward, we will see more plants closing and jobs moving to China and other places. Stock in Goodyear (India) went up 20% yesterday.

One can look at the news and see Biblical prophecy being fulfilled in these last days, leading to the time of the end. "In God we trust" must be more than a motto on our money, it must be written on our hearts and in our minds, or else many will fall by the wayside.

Our thoughts and prayers should be with all the workers and their families, who are directly affected with this news.

Just a few thoughts,
Concerned

Oh for crap's sake give it a rest!
Guess what? This isn't a "christian nation". It is only when people grow up and stop relying on these outdated fairy tales that we'll actually get ahead as a society.
Separation of Church and State is KEY: You can believe what you want, but keep it out of the classrooms and out of our government.

Then please tell that to all the "Greenies", homosexuals, atheists, multi-culturists and their similar immoral ilk... keep that crap out of the classrooms and our children's heads. It's a two way street, if you can't have one in the classroom, then why can you have the other and force feed it to our children. Sounds like indoctrination to me. Blow that out your ACLU hole!

I feel sorry for you with your beliefs or should I say lack of faith. It will be so sad when you are cast into hell fire but you cannot say you were not warned.

lack of belief in any deity is a good way to put it.

No, don't believe in hell fire either, that's a story meant to scare little kids, it doesn't work too well on adults.

It should because when you are burning you will plead with God to let you go to Heaven, why would you take that risk?

With all that has been said, You can tell that the end is near. I feel for and PRAY for all the people in this area and the souls that will burn eternally for their ignorant beleifs. If God Is not in it and Faith is not strong, We are in more trouble then I ever dreamed. Thankfully, I dont have my salvation to worry about along with all the other things happening around us! Prayers for the ones that will soon meet their maker. A christian nation is our only hope.

Actually, a Christian nation is something to fear. Every Theocracy has removed the rights of its citizens. Theocracies
are dangerous, very dangerous.

We (you) fear the Muslims over there, but you want to do the same thing here but with your brand of theocracy. No thanks, I'll take my chances with Science, reason, and Separation of Church and State.

Actually, America is most certainly not a Theocracy. It is a Monarchy type rule, with a president, as other countries have Queens, Rulers, and officials over the governments.

There will not be a Theocracy until Jesus Christ comes to rule and reign in Jerusalem, as the Capital City of the whole world. At this time, representatives from the nations will have to come up to Jerusalem for the feast days, or else rain will be withheld, according to Scripture, which is the source of life for crops, food, etc.. A Theocracy is a reign completely by Jesus Christ, as it was before the nation of Israel wanted a King, and were granted their wishes and given Saul. We see how that reign ended, with him turning to witchcraft and ending up committing sucicide, etc.

A Theocracy is not very wrong, my friend, it is the safest place in the Universe one could ever be. But, those in Christ are safe, as He will be in the eye of every storm.

A monarchy type rule is dangerous, and someone seems to have it backwards, although the court system was set up by the Lord, Himself, and rules given. It is this power that man has abused.

There are no chances to take with science, reason, and separation of church and state, etc., as one can't take chances in this life, but must make their calling and election sure. Only those who choose the Lord as their Savior are guaranteed life everlasting.
The reasonings of science that oppose the Scriptures will perish, but those who are in God will have life everlasting.

There's nothing to fear but fear itself, as one has so rightly said. But, we must have a reverence for God and His Holy Word as we go through this life.

This is getting old. Stop behaving as though Goodyear is the only plant on earth that will have ever closed. You people are pathetic. West TN is not the only place on earth to live. Move on!

My guess is that God is punishing you Goodyear types for laying around on the job cheating your employer. Cheating on the job amounts to theft and is against the commandments. Union City will soon face the same demises that Soddom and gommaroha went through all because of you Goodyear cheaters
