There’s Only ONE Solution to the Shootings

Two weekend shootings – one in El Paso, Texas, the other in Dayton, Ohio – accounted for 31 deaths and numerous injuries. The one in El Paso hit me harder as I had worked in that lovely city for 14 years before moving to Orlando, Florida.

I’ve written about mass shootings before, so I don’t want to belabor points I already made other than to reinforce my beliefs – and those of many evangelical Christians – that the overriding cause of these atrocities is spiritual. Sure, tougher gun laws may help somewhat, but these will have no bearing on the human heart.

Evil is increasing in the West as its nations continue to renounce God the Father, and deny God the Son who came into this world to save us from our sins. Politics and law enforcement cannot save us. Only falling on our faces before a holy and righteous God can stem the soaring rise of evil. It’s that simple.
