God, Guns and Government Schools
Published : March 5, 2018
Are we or are we not desperate enough to discuss all possible solutions? If we sincerely want to do everything in our power to prevent further loss of life and protect our children, can we finally bring up the need for God and a moral structure that used to be the fabric of society?
What is so wrong with allowing the Bible and Ten Commandments to be displayed again in the government schools our tax dollars are funding? Imagine kids seeing occasional reminders of Jesus Christ and His teachings on how to love our neighbor instead of bombarding them with the leftist ABCs? Anything But Christ.
According to the Freedom from Religion Foundation, the ACLU, and other anti-Christian activists, our schools are better now than they were 50 years ago. Their motto is "Good without God." You call what's happening in today's chaotic schools 'good'? Please.
And they say those of us who believe the Bible are the ones living in a fantasy world. What about Hollywood? According to the Parents Television Council, 61% of primetime TV shows contain violence; and nearly 40% contain violence and guns.
We now have kids today who place no value on human life due to the removal of God, due to Hollywood's promotion of violent movies and video games, and to an abortion business that promotes the murder of the most vulnerable.
Why do so few people point to the fact that atheists, activists, and radicals want a country without God, but when tragedy hits they ask mockingly, where is He and why doesn't He care? You cannot have it both ways! You banned the one true God from the classroom, the courthouse, and culture, so you can either keep Him out OR invite Him back in.
After a tragic-shooting, it's always a head scratcher when those who don't know or believe in God claim their thoughts and prayers go out to the victims. Most of us know there is only one living God capable of answering prayers; so what good does a person's thoughts really do and what exactly are these folks praying to?
It's just lip service. The true God is not a genie in a bottle or a 9-1-1 call you only use during an emergency.
Trying to make sense of a senseless act of evil, one of the best responses I've heard recently was from Wisconsin Congressman, Sean Duffy discussing the issue with Tucker Carlson.
America's founders declared we must be a moral and educated people, and most of them believed God's Word to be the foundation of truth and a healthy society.
If young people could somehow, once again be taught in schools the Judeo-Christian principles that seemed to work well for two-hundred years, there would be less violence, less drugs, fewer single parents, fewer pregnancies, fewer suicides, and fewer Nicholas Cruzes.
Gun control talking points become tedious if part of the conversation does not also include how most of today's kids are being raised with very little discipline, knowledge of God's love, and respect for every human life and America's true history.
In 1798, President John Adams wrote this to the Massachusetts Militia:
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
And here's a quote by President John Quincy Adams:
"So great is my veneration for the Bible, that the earlier my children begin to read it, the more confident will be my hopes that they will prove useful citizens to their country and respectable members of society."
