Answer is in our souls

 

Last week’s senseless killing of 20 children will provoke more calls from the left for gun control. While this may reduce future deaths, it sadly will not eliminate them.

Thanks in large part to those who so strongly condemn guns, we have become a Godless nation, choosing to ignore His wishes in how we conduct our personal lives. In return, God has chosen to ignore us. We celebrate diversity while banning displays of Christianity. We insist that mothers have the choice to kill their unborn children by the thousands, and we’re shocked when someone kills 20. Single mothers are congratulated for their promiscuity. Yet it was the stability of a complete family unit in the ’50s and ’60s that kept these massacres from happening.

I am not an overly religious person. I do not attend church as often as I should. But it seems to me that a great evil is at work here, and the most strict gun laws in the world will not keep this from happening again unless we pay more attention to God’s advice on how we maintain our lives.

The answer to this crisis is in our souls, not in gun control laws.
