 Re:

I have been so moved and troubled since this happened that I am speechless. I tried to post before most of you did and kept clicking “submit” but it wouldn’t go through. I am just groaning and asking God what it is that He is trying to say to those of us believers who are in continual prayer over the state of this nation.

PLEASE can everyone stop with the sarcasm and jabs. People are watching this forum to see what Christ looks like.

 Re:

Who made up that hard and fast rule?

Bears entire post was sarcasm but that is not what bothered me.

 Re:

I was speaking to more than one person. It is a tone that is exhibited sometimes on this forum. I have no more to say....

 Re:

Kids these days are bombarded at home with violence and pornographic filth on television and internet, they watch movies where violence is glorified, then they go to school where they are told (when they can be torn away from their cellphones for 2 minutes) that they evolved from stardust and have a common ancestry with earthworms, and that they have no purpose in the universe. What we are seeing is the logical outcome of a worldview pushed on them by ungodly men (and ultimately Satan).

"By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." Let's remember that the only way we can reach people to prevent these kinds of things from happening is to have a radical love for one another, love that "covers a multitude of sins", a love that is "patient and longsuffering".

 Re: Todd

"Mama sometimes Jesus called it as he saw it. In fact he always did."

Exactly! And in my own personal opinion, I feel the timid/milk toast Christians are partially responsible for the shape the Church is in now. Jesus spoke very loud for all of us on the cross, what you going to keep silent for him now? Matter fact, I hope I'm one of those Mama is talking about, if so that would be a Blessing for me. If Christians become immune to calling out wrong, well we may as well just throw away our Bibles. I'm not sure if the OP started this thread to put folks under condemnation or for self gratification, but his approach was terrible. By the way, tone and heart is two different things, if you don't know someones heart, you can be completely wrong judging their tone.

 Re: lest we all forget

Luke 13:1-5 Read
The thief comes not but to steal kill and destroy, but Jesus is come to give us life and life to the full.

This was an unfortunate event, I as well as any Christian would be hard presses not to sorrow with them that sorrow. I wish it was going to get better in society but as we all know it will not. The only safe place to be is hid in Christ in Heavenly places, where we can overcome Satan by the Bloodof the Lamb, and the Word of our testimony and love not our lives unto death..

 Re: Have we become so immune???

Have we become immune? Maybe, or maybe not. What can one do about it? We can wring our hands in distress but all that does is give our fingers a good workout.

American culture has been until recent times one that had a sense of right and wrong. We respected others - most of the time. At least it was frowned on that one resorts to violence in the event of disagreements.

In recent times people have been entertained by depictions of violence in the visual media and thus their conscience has become dulled - so we say and we know it is true. However...how do you explain the lament God shared with in Hosea 4:1-2: "Listen to the word of the LORD, O sons of Israel,For the LORD has a case against the inhabitants of the land, Because there is no faithfulness or kindness Or knowledge of God in the land.

2 There is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery.They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed." NASB

OPPS! God is talking to people who used to be his children. Israelites did not have tv, movies to dull their consciences so what happened?

Maybe there is something worse coming down the pike: church people killing each other? They already are committing adultery with impunity, aborting their unwanted babies....

 Re:

The only thing a Christ follower should do is pray.......and forgive.Its called the way of the cross. Any time I get caught up in outrage the Lord smites my heart with shame. We are to be known by our love, for one another, for the lost, for our enemies. When I was an enemy Jesus died for me.
