There has been a sharp increase in these horrific mass murder assaults in the last few decades. People ask why this evil is happening more often and with more intensity.
The usual answers given do not address the real cause. Mental illness, guns, violent movies, television, video games, and the self serving, dangerous political blaming do not truly answer the burning question as to how and why is this horrific evil increasing.
Over the last fifty years, radical leftists, secularists, atheists, and post modernists have been doing everything possible to ensure that God (especially in America’s historical Judeo Christian tradition, rooted firmly in the founding of our nation) and prayer have been removed from our schools and our culture in general. The powerful self restraint and moral precepts that an individual learns through having a relationship with God has systematically been replaced with a new religion that worships self.
Truth and morality now is all relative, based on how you “feel”, not actual facts or realities. The price of life itself has cheapened, evidenced by the tragic and glaring example of over 60 million unborn children butchered and killed through the abomination of abortion, since 1973 via Roe v Wade.
Violent, terrorist organizations like the radical leftists in Antifa, now surround the homes of people who simply have a different political view, and scream “we know where you sleep at night”, while trying to break though the front door. Or they take to the streets, terrorizing and threatening pedestrians and motorists who are unfortunate enough to being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
This pure madness and evil is rising because we have all but removed the self restraint that a relationship with God teaches and fosters in us. The moral, ethical, and human decency that is nourished and blossoms in a culture breaks down and we are left with the worship of self. A self, for the most part, that is riddled with deep rooted fears, self loathing, anger, hatred, prejudices, jealousy, greed, confusion, and pain.
Dear Father God….we need you more than ever before. Sweet Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, only YOU can heal us and this land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says it best:
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
