There’s a lot of talk going around about gun control these days. It’s rather foolish really, at least to many of us. It seems we never deal with the real problem…that of man’s broken nature.
Stop and think for a moment. If you could somehow take every single gun, of any and all types, out of circulation in this country, that still leaves the anger, the hatred, the dissensions, and for some, the mental illness. In China, the guns are gone, so what do their headlines read? Last month, there was a school massacre committed with a…MACHETE!
We are so stupid in this country. We’ve left God in the dust; a vague shadow in the rear view mirror and, yet, we think godly principles will spring up from ungodly people! In leaving Him behind, we’ve left behind His superior wisdom, too.
We raise taxes instead of cutting spending; we come against capitalism (which is only a system of production—probably the best when compared to all the others!) instead of the bribery, lies and corruption which clog capitalisms effectiveness; and we come against guns when the problem is anger, hatred and dissensions.
What utter foolishness! By tossing out God from your life, you toss out the “fruit of the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22-23) which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Hm-m, no guns needed against those!
Instead, without God, you are left only with the broken nature and the deeds of the flesh, which are (Galatians 5: 19-21) immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, and outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing and things like these. Yikes, because I live in a society flooded with the latter instead of the former…I think I’ll keep my guns! Remember, gun control cannot end sin, only Jesus Christ in you can do that for you. Endure the fire—it’s producing pure gold!
