Response to Las Vegas Massacre
It doesn’t seem helpful to me to be shocked and ask the question what went wrong. Murder, adultery, and all things in opposition to life and liberty are alive and well in every human heart. (and no, you are not a good person…)
This weekend more than 3000 pre-born babies were murdered with no outrage.
I don’t want to minimize the horror of the events in Las Vegas. In fact, I want to look at that gory carnage with all its stench and murderous vileness and know that except for the grace of God I could be that guy – and so could you. Those who are not surrounded by the love of family and friends are especially vulnerable to acting out. But, only the Love of God permanently restrains and exchanges apathy and hate, for Love and seeking God’s glory.
What is the solution? Refrain from pointing the finger and instead examine your own heart. Every individual needs to decide how the evil within can be controlled and we each need to seek the Lord. Heb. 11:6
