Many are asking the question why? Why did this young man open fire on children? Why does God allow these things to happen? Why are all these shootings occurring in our country? Why? The answer lies in the following scripture:
Romans 1:22-32. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to the uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen, FOR THIS CAUSE God gave them up unto vile affections for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; BEING FILLED WITH ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS , fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, spiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
All you need to do is look around at what is happening in America to understand why. We see Gays marching in the streets and in the courts to change the definition of marriage to suit their sin, we see violence and envy against the owners of corporations, we see race used to promote hate, we see sexual promiscuity every where, we see God being removed from the public square and from our lives. People wanting things for free and wanting them from those working to earn them, we see mothers killing their own babies daily. These behaviors have consequences . America has lost her moral compass, Americans have turned their backs on God and now we are facing the consequences. It is time for Christians to stand up and say no more, our country was founded on Judea-Christian principles and we want it back.!
My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families of this tragedy.
