Father God in Heaven, I pray for healing and comfort directly from your throne for the families of the victims at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in Jesus name…
Even as I wrote my column this week, I am still in utter shock at the gut-wrenching tragedy of 15 students and 2 teachers at a public school in Parkland, Florida, being mercilessly gunned down by a psychopath with a high powered rifle.
I am honestly perplexed at this level of evil; senseless, violent, hate without a mask.
This world-wide struggle to protect children from abuse, trafficking, violence, emotional abuse, health risks, bad moral influences, and, perhaps the biggest struggle, the protection of children in the womb will continue through the ages until Christ makes all things new.
However, any person that has any humanity in them at all desires to get this under “control.”
Grievously, there are certain factions of America who immediately stood on the bodies of the children before they even had graves, screaming vitriolic insults at Constitutionalists and Christian patriots that this tragedy is their fault. They correlated two entirely unrelated topics: the preservation of self-defense and the murder of children.
Phrases like, “How can you as a Christian stand for this kind of lawless behavior where people have easy access to guns and kill others? It doesn’t make sense – you ought to be for more gun control if you’re a Christian!”
These hypocritical assertions come from many who believe the act of murder is okay so long as the child is unborn or infant. This is driving me crazy because I can’t even wrap my head around this nefarious, illogical absurdity.
To quote my pastor and friend, Christopher Ogne:
Anyone who votes for politicians that say they want more gun control, but then vote to take public funding to prop up and proliferate the 3000 – that’s right – 3000 innocent murders of unborn infants a day in this country, rings completely hollow. The 17 that recently died are horrifying and tragic.
And guess what – we’ve locked up the perp. To kill children was already illegal. The perp was caught, is charged, and is awaiting trial.
Yet, the recent abortion doctor that killed 7 babies yesterday is home drinking scotch. Anyone that thinks that is okay, and votes for politicians that think this is okay, and then attempts to tell me that I’m not Christian for not supporting wider gun control, is never going to change my mind. Ever.
As seen in every single mass shooting, the government is completely incapable of protecting the citizenry from these kinds of attacks. If the people do not protect themselves, there is no protection. All “gun-control” laws do is fight or obstruct the people from protecting themselves.
Our Founding Fathers dedicated our Constitution to “preserve the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity” (emphasis added). The Second Amendment was a part of their way to ensure we can accomplish this.
I believe today we need “control” of our leaders and make sure that they advocate, endorse and sponsor the protection of the children and our own God-given right to life, liberty, and property.
