The horrific and senseless shootings in El Paso and Dayton have shaken
us to the very core.
No words can fully express the abhorrence, anger, and even confusion that people of good will are feeling in this latest manifestation of the insidious evil that cuts innocent lives short and brings such pain to their loved ones, and truly to us all.
In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 we are warned:
"You can be certain that in the last days dangerous times of great stress and trouble will come
(difficult days that will be hard to bear).
For people will
-Lovers of self [narcissistic, self-focused]
-Lovers of money
[impelled by greed]
-Unholy and profane
-Unloving [devoid of natural human affection,
calloused and inhumane]
-Devoid of self-control [intemperate, immoral]
-Haters of good
-Lovers of [sensual] pleasure rather than lovers of God
-Holding to a form of [outward] godliness (religion), although they have denied its power [for their conduct nullifies their claim of faith]..."
(2 Timothy 3:1-5)
It's happening, not only in the US, but in all the world, because of humanity's true problem: Sin.
We all go our own way, following our own hearts and minds, so often (and unknowingly) influenced by the rhetoric and reasonings of an Evil that hides in plain sight and we have not been told, not believed, or we have disregarded the solution to all of this, provided by our Creator, which can stop and even reverse this torrential flood of sorrow and death:
A new Birth
(2 Corinthians 5:17).
A relationship with God that erases the stain of sin and replaces it with a new, glorious Life renewed in the divine image (Ephesians 4:24).
This was made possible by the eternal victory of Christ in His life, death, and Resurrection.
If you don't yet have this relationship, you can.
Ask Christ to come into your life as both Savior and Lord. He will always respond
If you already have this relationship, share this news with others.
And until the King of Kings returns to put a stop to these
dangers forever, let's all work together to impede the horrors of evil and rescue as many people as possible from its malignant intent.
