Last night, an unspeakable tragedy in a Charleston, South Carolina church. Nine murdered in cold blood by a soulless creature.
Instead of unifying with the victims and their families, the usual suspects come out to push their agendas: blaming whites, conservatives, gun owners for this horror. Instead of unifying and representing the whole nation, Richard Milhous Obama comes out, like a buzzard, preying on this tragedy to disarm law-abiding citizens, while attacking opponents of gun control and this nation in the process. He claims no where else in the civilized world is this type of killing happening, yet he could not be bothered to send a US representative to France when Islamists murdered employees at Charlie Hebdo, and Obama is silent about the beheadings, crucifixions, and mass killings of Christians in the Middle East by Islamists.
Violent criminals get killed by police and become martyrs, which leads to police officers being killed in ambush attacks. Riots in Ferguson, MO and Baltimore, MD. Calls of "police brutality" at pool parties in McKinney, TX and another town recently in Ohio.
What is wrong in America today?
This is just my opinion, and it's come from a lot of thought over the last few months, and even last few weeks. Obama, the libs, and the gun-grabbers can get all the gun control laws they want, and it won't stop horrible tragedies like Charleston or Sandy Hook. Just like all the regulations and other nonsense he will do to try and stop the fraud known as gloBULL warming won't cool the planet. It is the supreme arrogance, thinking that their human power is the be-all and end-all.
Background checks, gun-free zones, gun locks won't stop what is in the human heart. You can try and change behavior, but no law, no act of Congress, no President, no political party, can change someone's heart.
It's evident to me that the solution to what is wrong in our country is not completely a political one. The problem we have in America today, I believe, is a spiritual and moral bankruptcy. It is one that didn't start overnight, and won't go away overnight either.
I'm not trying to sound like a preacher, and I'm not trying to tell someone how to live their life, because God knows I have enough trouble living my own. But how many people over the age of 50 will tell us how much this nation has changed over the last few decades, starting to when governments and the courts started telling God he must get out of the public square.
Humans are imperfect, and never will attain perfection. We are all broken people, and we are looking for something to fix that brokenness. People are looking for meaning, for something to take away the emptiness. People are obsessed with money, their stature, pop-culture icons. Thanksgiving cannot go by without people camping out at stores to go on rampages for Black Friday sales, going at each other like animals over some gadget or inanimate object, just for a temporary fix. People are doped up on anti-depressants, or take a number of drugs (legal or illegal) and alcohol, only to get rid of the emptiness and try to find meaning...in all the wrong things.
There is no political solution to the heart of what ails our nation today. In fact, I think the solution to our problems can largely be found in what the nine people were doing in that church.
They were on their knees, earnestly seeking God.
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
