Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Another Mass Shooting...

As you know, over this last weekend, a crazed man shot 19 people, killing six in Tucson, Arizona. My first thought was obviously for the victims and their families. My second thought was, "Please, don’t let this be some nut who professes to be a Christian..." No doubt Republicans hoped he wouldn’t be a Republican, African Americans and Mexican’s hoped he wouldn’t be someone who hated whites, or wanted an open border. And no doubt they were relieved to find out that he was an atheist, who refused a Bible when offered one. But it would be unfair to blame atheism for this terrible crime, because he could have just as easily been any one of the above.

We only see the tip of the iceberg of the suffering this idiot caused. Old Westerns portray a hero downing gulps of whisky as a bullet is removed from his shoulder, then he’s off to shoot some more bad guys. But in reality, bullets tear though muscle, bone, and vital organs, leaving the victim either dead, or in great pain for long periods of time, never able to function the same again. Incidents like these rip families apart forever.

Still, Fred Phelps, the nut of all nuts, thinks the shooting was good. He thanks God for the shooter, saying that He sent him to kill these people, because America is evil. He called the shooting "A marvellous work in Tucson."

Again, the fact that the shooter was an atheist had nothing to do with his crime. He did it because he had a sinful nature. When a mass murderer takes the lives of other human beings, there's no need to psychoanalyze him and try and find what this man has in common with other psychopaths. He's a normal human being who has let his sinful nature run wild. He is like the Nazis, the rapists, the pedophiles, the thieves and liars. His evil actions simply confirm that God's testimony about man, is true and right.
