Making Sense Out of Another Tragedy

The nation was shocked again with another mass shooting this time in Las Vegas, Nevada. Already blame is given to mental illness. gun control, ISIS, and the list goes on and on, but no one looks at the real problem. It’s like the whole world and most of Christianity ignores the problem completely. Yes, it is a deep-rooted problem that goes back many years, perhaps as far back as the 1950’s. Until we recognize the problem we will never be able to solve it. Everyone will admit that what a man thinks is what he will eventually do.

It may be necessary to reevaluate your theology on which you hang your belief to ensure that you have properly laid a foundation on which to stand firm. You might be asking why I must engage the enemy. It is apparent from scripture that he is already engaging you and if you do not learn how to stand firm against him then you will live a defeated life. You will suffer the consequences. Clearly Satan’s mission is to destroy the church and to convince you that you have no need of it; that you are quite capable of standing alone on your own spiritual journey.
