Why?

Shooting children? Why?

Life isn’t bad enough? Yet it seems that some just want to make it worse because of their actions that don’t make sense at all. Murdering children that haven’t even had a real chance to enjoy life. These children were wanted and loved by their families…what reason could possibly be given for this atrocity?

Gun control won’t help. Outlawing any kind of gun won’t help. The guns are not the problem nor is the availability of the guns. Our country has forgotten its roots that were deeply grounded in the Bible at one time. Parents and grandparents used to teach their children about God and pray with them about things that were going on in the world. We need to get back to that practice again!

God loves each of us and He placed those children on this Earth for a purpose but someone’s idea of killing them cut that purpose short. God knew of this but it is our responsibility to teach our children the right way to live according to God’s law. When I was growing up during the ’70s nearly every pickup that you saw had either a rifle or a shotgun or both in the cab on a gun rack visible to anyone. There were no shootings at the time that I remember. What happened?

We have walked away from our faith in God and particularly in the last few years because COVID gave everyone an excuse to leave the church and most haven’t gone back. We need God in our lives every day and those who feel that He doesn’t exist or don’t want to believe that He is real are going to be in for a huge surprise one day…soon.

Psalm 139 says in part: 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 Point out anything in me that offends you,
    and lead me along the path of everlasting life.

I pray that each of you will seek Jesus out today to learn of Him and what He offers to all who will believe in Him for their salvation.

  1. It truly breaks my heart to see how dark my ctry has become. As a devout Christian patriot who deeply loves America, it saddens me to see Satan using people like these callous shooters to destroy lives, especially of our little children. My condolences to the families of those who perished in the Texas school shooting yesterday. Clearly, we have not learned our lesson with Covid, and we have become stiffnecked and stubborn, thinking that we are the best country in the world because we are so advanced in technology. I pray that we will eventualy repent and come back to the light.
