Letter: We have turned our backs on God
Here America sits, with yet another horrific event. Good God in heaven, what is it going to take to wake us up?
Our problem in America is systemic and much deeper than guns. We no longer value and respect life. We no longer value and respect each other. We allow our children to spend hours with diabolical videos which desensitize them to killing. When something happens, we pass it off as mental illness. Sorry, not that simple!
We as a nation have turned our backs on God who has graced us with so much! The majority of our churches are just social clubs, more interested in potluck dinners, entertainment and teaching man-centered doctrine, instead of preaching the fear of God to their congregations.
How has that worked out for us? I do not hear weeping in the streets about the millions of unborn children murdered every day in this country. Face the truth! Killing an unborn child is murder, period! The stuff on television is dirty, violent and not worth watching. Greed for more and more rules the day, and our children who need good parenting and a mom home 24/7 are left on their own. Folks marry and are not prepared to do the work and make the commitment to develop a strong, morally fit family unit that builds a strong morally fit community.
Sadly, there will be more Connecticut incidents, and no doubt worse, until we get serious about correcting these problems. We are a nation that has lost its moral compass, a nation in search of its soul. This cannot be solved by laws. It will require a serious sacrificial change in hearts, minds and actions.
