I was just wondering, what do you think about all the violence that has occurred? Do you think it is an outcome or a problem? Perhaps the problem is not with the means used, perhaps the problem could be with a society that has mainstreamed bad behavior where anyone and anything they do or say is okay. Perhaps it is Christians who are no longer the salt and light change agents the world needs, where we no longer see the need to go and tell the good news. Maybe we have welcomed the world so much into our midst and then try to be like them so as not to offend that morality means nothing. Perhaps it is the outcome of our convoluted view of killing the unborn and the newborn and then we are surprised when someone murders the innocent. Makes one wonder…
By the way, my thoughts and prayers are with the families, emergency responders, school, and others involved. It is truly very sad, but sin exists and we need to be the salt and light God has called us to be.
