For the world today, amongst all the shootings, rape, crime, drugs, and porn, there is only one answer.
And it’s not gun control, political lobbying, legislation, picketing, or elections of the right person (whomever that may be), when you get right down to it with all the crappy stuff going on in the world today things are only going to get worse from here on out.
Yeah, we don’t really want to think about it, but if you don’t, then who?
All this examiner really wants is to raise his kids to be better than he has done, and be all that they can be, and do all they can do to make things better for them and their kids. That’s the real answer for parents. That’s what we want most of all. And even that is flawed, because the more we try to make things better, the worse the world gets and other people think they have a better idea and change the rules. So then, we have to play catch up.
Gun control is not the answer for protecting our children in our schools. While we do feel that schools should be the safest place for them next to the home it’s not always possible. What happened at Sandy Hook was a parents worst nightmare, and we would not wish that upon anyone, no matter what their political views are, what kind of car they drive, or house they live in, or what religion they are, it was just terrible and my heart goes out to each and every one of those parents. Gun control is not going to bring their child back.
And what about all the other horrendous things that go on in the world?
Well, the answer for those are the same, it’s not who can do better than someone else, who can beat whoever in whatever election, it’s not how much money we throw at the problems, or even which piece of legislation bans whatever in an attempt to rid us of these worldly problems. So what’s the answer then?
It’s Jesus, the Son of God, the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, Yahweh, Prince of Peace, Almighty God, the Alpha and Omega, Redeemer, Deliverer, Everlasting Father, the Word, the Way, Savior, Master, the Great I Am!
You see without him we are nothing. People are deceived by the great deceiver…satan. Jesus has been, and always will be the only Way out of the darkness of this world. Not suicide, drugs, sex, drinking, or guns!
Christians, no matter what denomination should be sharing Christ at every opportunity given to them. Yeah, in the past the church may not have done such a great job, Westboro being a prime example. But that doesn’t mean all have failed, it just means we must each do our part.
With Christmas just past and the New Year ahead let’s ALL make one resolution this year, and that’s to reach out and share Jesus with at least one person. Even if you chose to share with one person a month how much richer would the world be?
