Shrill cries for more gun control laws always follow mass shooting we’re witnessing in our country. Law makers don’t get it. The president doesn’t get it. More gun laws will not reduce crime. More gun laws will not keep people from killing other people.
No politician, no advocacy group, no judge, no bipartisan coalition, no legislature is wise enough to devise gun laws that will stop, or even diminish, the murders and shootings that have become a tragic characteristic of our culture. It is not a political dilemma. It is not a judicial responsibility. It is not a social issue. It is not a mental health problem. It is not an education mandate. It is not a second amendment issue. More gun control is not the answer, or even a stop-gap measure.
The epidemic of murders and killings is far beyond human understanding or remedy. All the blood shed and lives lost only serve to underscore our desperate need for Christ’s own blood to atone for the sins of the depraved souls perpetrating the violence. Unless and until we (authentic followers of Christ — yes, it’s up to us) fall on our faces and act upon 2 Chronicles 7:14 and believe that He will do it, nothing will happen.
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and I will heal their land.
Law makers are foolish to believe they can solve the problem with more gun laws.
We are foolish if we think God can not, or will not, help us. God is omnipotent. He is the alpha and the omega. Nothing or no one is beyond His compassion, His mercy, His wrath, or His judgment.
