Our country, once again, has been faced with a tragedy that sent shock waves throughout our land. Children and teachers being murdered in the school is not exactly the picture we would like to portray of America. Now many have theories of the causes and solutions for these evil acts committed by these people. Now some say that stricter gun control laws and more metal detectors in the schools are the answer. Mike Huckabee said the reason is because America has chosen to remove God from the public school system.
Those who know God know that He is sovereign and omnipresent; meaning that nothing that happens is outside his control. And God is in all places at the same time. God uses good and allows evil to accomplish His final plan and will. God has also given us the gift of free will, allowing us to make choices regarding our lives collectively and individually. God tells us in Deuteronomy 30:15, 19 that he puts before us life and prosperity, death and destruction. Choose life so that you and your children may prosper. Now whether we believe it or not or agree with it or not, there is some truth in what Mike Huckabee said. Let me explain:
America has chosen to remove prayer from our schools. Just last week, a substitute teacher was fired for giving a child a bible. During the 2012 Democratic Convention, the committee removed the acknowledgement, thanks or honor to God from their platform. They have also decided to embrace s*xu@l immorality in the form of homosexual marriages as their main focus and agenda. Now, more than 50% of Americans agreed with this bold stance of rebellion against God and his word. The evidence is in voting for this party. In that statement America has said “We don’t need God or care about what He says”. God says in His word that we will reap what we sow. If we sow seeds of righteousness, which means obeying God and His Word, we will reap a harvest of righteousness and blessings, light and life. If we sow seeds of rebellion, disobedience, s*xu@l immorality and hatred, we will reap a harvest of death and destruction. God is true to his word. We can depend on God to stay faithful to His Word.
God allows us to experience the consequences of our behavior whether good or bad. America cannot continue to turn away from God and expect God to reject what he has clearly stated in his word. America is now reaping the harvest from a culture who says “do your own thing,” “everything is relevant,” “there is no right or wrong,” “do it your way,” “you can do whatever you want to do,” “we don’t need morals,” “we don’t need God.” This has produced a generation of angry, bitter, confused adults who have no hope. They have no problem picking up a gun and killing people and then killing themselves. We can change the gun laws, kill the murderers, put metal detectors and police officers in the schools but we cannot change the heart of people. Only God can do that. If America wants to be blessed by God, she must repent and ask God for forgiveness. Those who know and believe God must set the example. Pray for America. Pray for the hearts of these young people.
Holy Father, we praise you for who you are. You are Holy, Holy, Holy and our sins separate us from You. Lord, send Your Holy Spirit and convict the hearts of the people of America and give us the faith to repent and honor you as the one and only true and living, all wise God of the Holy Bible. Show us how to love you Lord. It is in the mighty, powerful name of Jesus Christ that we pray. From Ms. Robin from purposeful parent: God be with you till we meet again.
