Dare I say it?
 

It isn’t a “Gun Problem”.

Really, it’s not.
Prove it? Sure! Genesis 4:8 – Cain didn’t kill Able with a gun. We don’t know how he did it; we just know he did it. He did it before guns were invented. And he did it long before the founding of the NRA.
 

It isn’t a “Mental Health Problem”.

Really, it’s not.
Yes, mental illness is a real thing. Mental illness can be mild, or it can be very ugly. And yes, we need to be concerned about those who are not mentally healthy. But not all mentally unhealthy people have psychotic tendencies. And not all killers are mentally ill.
 

It isn’t a “Public Schools Problem”.

Really, it’s not. Neither is it a “Video Games Problem” or a “TV Violence Problem”.
 
 

It’s a Spiritual Problem; it’s a Heart Problem.

At the very deep root level, it really is!

And we will continue to see violent outbursts and murder unless/until hearts — not laws — are changed.

2Chronicles 7:14
And lest someone say that this Bible passage was written only to Israel and Judah and America: yes, I agree. But there is a practical application to any and all whom God calls “My people”. He invites us to pray. And He promises to answer.
 

So let’s pray.
