We Get What We Sow

This first weekend in August, in gun-free Chicago, we have 10 or 11 killed and some 70 shot.  How can that happen in a gun-free city? It is not racism. Maybe, the “bad guys” don’t follow the laws of the city. Well, obviously it is NOT about the gun…it is about the HEART.

There is an innate understanding in all of humanity of what is right and wrong, so that is not the problem. All the usual excuses are removed. So that only leaves one other thing…it MUST be about the heart. The more we remove God from the culture and shackle the way we can talk about the saving grace and mercy of our LORD Jesus the Christ, the more we will find evil stepping in to fill the void. We get what we sow.

Understanding Newtown, Connecticut…don’t blame God

Often with these senseless tragedies, people will ask why did God let this happen, or worse…why did God do this? God is not the author of hate, evil, sadness and the tragic death of children. God loves, but there is evil in the world, uncreated by God. Mankind messed up God plan by following fallen angels rather than God. Today, we seem to kick out God and desire to follow the god of the culture. It will always fail. The hate and destruction this one boy dumped on 26 sets of loving families, on a town, and on a nation was not created by God. Though sought out, there is no closure of a loss such as this. Yes, this was already a gun-free zone, yes the school had just upgraded their security, yes there was already a ban on so-called assault weapons; the only thing that will work to save our children, our loved ones, our nation is to turn back to God and learn how to love one another…again.
