As the nation, and more importantly Uvalde Texas, reels from the carnage wrought at Robb Elementary – we must pray for, and support the families of those murdered, as well as those injured. Police, and Texas governor Greg Abbott, said that the murderer, 18 year old Salvador Ramos, was killed by law enforcement, but not after shooting someone off campus, barricading himself in an elementary school, and murdering innocent children. The numbers will change, but the fact remains that this should not have happened, and no one will argue that fact.
Unfortunately before the news has even finished, democrats are screaming like banshees about needing to get rid of all law abiding citizens guns. Just because this stupid argument comes up every time a lunatic, criminal or terrorist harms other people, here is a quote from the CDC:
Estimates of gun use for self-defense vary widely, in part due to definitional differences for self-defensive gun use; different data sources; and questions about accuracy of data, particularly when self-reported. The NCVS has estimated 60,000 to 120,000 defensive uses of guns per year. On the basis of data from 1992 and 1994, the NCVS found 116,000 incidents (McDowall et al., 1998). Another body of research estimated annual gun use for self-defense to be much higher, up to 2.5 million incidents, suggesting that self-defense can be an important crime deterrent (Kleck and Gertz, 1995). Some studies on the association between self-defensive gun use and injury or loss to the victim have found less loss and injury when a firearm is used (Kleck, 2001b).CDC
Now that the defense of normal people being able to defend themselves against the average democrat voter is out of the way, let us address the underlying cause of all of this.
The United States has rejected Christ.
That’s it – full stop. Scream and cry all you want. Allow rainbow haired morons to pound their drums and threaten law abiding citizens who protect themselves all you want. The decay of society is interlocked with the rejection of Christian principles of faith and morality.
The murderer in Texas was not white, so they cannot blame racism – so they will scream and pout blaming inanimate objects.
The blame squarely rests on the USA rejecting the Christian values that it was founded upon. Yes, we have a mental health epidemic going on, and while some of that is genuinely a health issue, it is not addressed either. Starting with Ronald Reagan, the non-institutionalization of dangerous and psychotic elements of society have exploded the homeless and drug addict populations, all while escalating the amount of violence they commit.
Do you really think that the psychopath in Texas this morning was just a normal person? No – he was not –
Just another example of a child who has been turned against that which is normal, and indoctrinated into the cesspool of filth that is the radical left. This person needed mental and spiritual help, however instead they were pushed, by society and most likely his ‘family’ into this dark depression addled sin-lifestyle.
However, really picking up steam with the Marxist movements of the 1960’s, God was ejected from the schools, the government, and the homes, leaving people broken, narcissistic and the problem has grown. Churches, (not social clubs like Osteen and Sagebrush for example) struggle to reach their communities, because the norm is now that people do not need God, however I propose that the reason all sorts of degeneracy and violence reign unchecked in society is because without GOD there is nothing but SIN and CHAOS.
Atheists, pagans, and all manner of silly people like to say, that if you need an imaginary man in the sky to tell you to do the right thing, you are a bad person. You know what? They are right! Humans are bad creatures –
Jeremiah 17:9 – The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Romans 3:10 -18 – 10) As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11) There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12) They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13) Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14) Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15) Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16) Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17) And the way of peace have they not known: 18) There is no fear of God before their eyes.KJV
Just look at Romans 3:10-18, and it describes the world without Christ, and no matter how many laws we pass, no matter how many times a politician gets in front of a camera to scold, society will never change without God being put back within the center where he belongs.
There are grieving families in Texas tonight, who need Gods love now more than ever. Instead however there will be politicians from the left screaming for days about gun control. If you, or someone you know is near Uvalde, or even close to those affected, be there for them. Pray for them – pray with them, and even if you live a thousand miles away, do your part by reaching your friends with the gospel.
