What's Behind Mass Shootings In America?
(Or, What is Destroying Our Country?)
By David J. Stewart | August 2019
Psalms 119:9-12, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.”
It is not that difficult to figure out what is behind the literally hundreds of tragic school and public mass shootings across the county. The preceding latter article identifies 248 mass U.S. shooting just for the first 6 months of 2019. It is tragic and heartbreaking! Interestingly, only 1 of those shootings happened at a church. Psychologists fully understand and tell us that children are products of their environment...
The inspired Word of God is the answer! We need to get the blessed King James Bible back into the lives of our children in America! There is no other answer! I did some research today, reading through many webpages on “Why school shootings?” One of the articles (by PBS) that I read expresses the opinions of several American teenagers, whose opinions, sadly to say, all failed to address the need for the Holy Bible! One teen girl blames the adults for being inactive, two girls want stricter government gun control, one boy wants a “chill time” for students each day, one girl said 18 year olds have underdeveloped brains and shouldn't be allowed to have guns, one girl blames greed, one girl said we need to do more to help the mentally-ill, another girl said we need to make it harder to buy guns. Those suggestions all sound like the foolish kind of things that teenagers would say, which sadly aren't any better than what most adults are saying either! Listen my friend, morality CANNOT be legislated. U.S. President John Adams understood this truth well, who said:
“We have not government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” —U.S. President John Adams (1735-1826)
All of those teenagers are being unrealistic! What is the biggest change in our nation today, since the 1950's when schools were safe to attend, youth enjoyed proper courtship before marriage, and life was normal? The biggest change is the removal of the Word of God from children's daily lives!!! That fatal court ruling created a massive VACUUM, so Satan came along and filled that large vacuum with EVIL influences (feminism, the Playboy philosophy, Rock music, raunchy sensual music videos, adulterous and violent television and movies, violent video games, a heathen media that glorifies the street gang culture, Harry Potter's witchcraft, lack of church involvement, the bogus lies of Evolution taught in the school, illegal drugs, et cetera). Dr. Jack Hyles (1926-2001) rightly said: The worst thing about public schools is not what they teach, it's WHAT THEY DON'T TEACH! Pastor Hyles was so right!!!
To complicate matters, the U.S. government has allowed tens of millions of illegal immigrants to flood into the country from gang-infested Mexico and other problematic places, bringing their criminal culture with them! Look at what these six Hispanic teenage punks (and one black) did to these two innocent white teen girls (WARNING: These are graphic details and made my cry this morning, what happened to these two girls in Texas in 1993). Hell WILL BE hot enough, if they died in their sins without Christ! Folks, this is what teenagers without Jesus Christ are capable of committing! My father used to say that “anyone can become a monster without Jesus Christ!” He was 100% right! America today is just like the book of Judges in the Old Testament, when there was injustice everywhere, because there was no king in the land. Today, we have leaders, but they are failing to execute justice. Those monsters weren't executed for 17 years, because of their “rights”! Ecclesiastes 8:11, “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” Oh how we need to get back to honoring and obeying the Word of God in America!!!
