Another shooting! This time at the airport in Florida.
Why is this always happening?
Being controlled to murder earthlings by an alien force can certainly be ruled out. But actions begin as a thought: hatred, malice and envy – evil thoughts. We all have evil thoughts; nobody is perfect. But when we entertain these thoughts and hold them captive, we end up acting on them.
“The tongue utters only what is already in the heart (Matthew 12:34). Acts of sin besides what the tongue commits proceed from the same evil heart (Matthew 15:17-20). Matthew 7:16-18 confirms the impossibility of changing an evil heart, as it can never produce good fruit. God must completely replace it with a wholly different nature for it to produce good fruit! Before being changed, it can produce only evil fruit.” -Matthew 15:17-20
Cops: Mental Health Crisis Led To Fatal Birthday Stabbing reads the headlines of an article on LevittownNow.com about a man who came home at four in the morning and attacked his girlfriend with a knife. Although the police state that this sudden attack was a “rapid descent into a major mental health problem,” weeks before, the attacker’s parents saw there was a problem with this “peaceful, well respected and generous” man. http://levittownnow.com/2016/10/15/mental-health-crisis-led-to-fatal-birthday-stabbing/
What fuels evil acts such as mass shootings?
Since the Garden of Eden, humans were tempted. Satan, in the form of a snake, tempted Adam and Eve, telling them that if they eat the forbidden fruit they would be like God, knowing good and evil and will gain wisdom. The crafty snake also told our first parents that God didn’t mean it when he said they will die if they disobey Him. Since then, people have been following the father of lies.
Lies have been circulating before and after the election of Donald Trump. One common, persistent lie is that Mr. Trump is a racist. Not only is this false witness, not based on any evidence, but is counterproductive and harmful to the black community. Professor of Economics at George Mason University Walter E Williams expounds on this thought: http://walterewilliams.com/blacks-and-politicians/
Just as Dr. Williams urges people to stop tolerating and making excuses for the despicable and destructive behavior of individual blacks, some people have put a lid on bad behavior of homeless individuals who exhibit outlandish behavior at the community meals, particularly coming to the meals drunk, verbally and physically threatening other guests as well as actually attacking people! One such person in now in the Bucks County jail.
As a result of holding people accountable for their behavior, the community meals have been peaceful. People not only eat in peace, but have a wonderful time meeting with friends and edifying one another.
To stop bad behavior, you must understand and act on the root cause. It’s sin. All the King’s Horses and All The King’s Men in government can’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again. We hear the incessant mantra that “drug addiction” is a disease and not a character flaw, weakness. Operating under this premise has exacerbated the epidemic of overdoses, many fatal. Of course, as is the case with liberals, results don’t matter, just as long as people praise their intentions and they get their money!
“Come, let us return to the Lord; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.” -Hosea 6:1
