It’s Happened Again

AR15I’ve been watching the news of the Conneticut shooting since it broke. I’ve seen the folks from both sides of the political divide already posting their rants in my Facebook feed.

Perhaps the reaction that most makes me want to pull out my hair are the folks who keep referring to the shooter, America, and law-abiding gun-owners as “sick”.

The shooter wasn’t sick – he was evil.

Law-abiding gun-owners aren’t sick. They are exercising their 2nd Amendment rights.

America isn’t sick. What’s wrong with our nation is that we’ve stopped calling evil what it is, and tried to relegate it to the level of sickness. Sick young men didn’t shoot up a high school in Littleton, Colorado. A sick young man didn’t open fire at Virginia Tech. It wasn’t a sick man who killed innocents at the Dark Knight premiere. Evil men did these things.

Call it what it is. Pure, unadulterated evil. The problem isn’t guns, or “young men subject to impulses”. The problem is that the heart of man is deceitfully wicked, and dwells on evil continually. The problem is that man is a rebellious sinner.

The solution is the gospel.

"I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve." (Romans 16:17-18) Please read "The Comments Policy."
