Painful to hear, see, and write about. One more senseless killing spree in VA USA, as two reporters were gunned down by a man on a mission.
Why? Opinions vary with merit, but a question needs to be asked and faced by an honest heart. Imagine a world absent of influence by language, culture, geography, history, ahem, religion, and decide for yourself WHY a man would take another mans life. Paradise huh, yeah, good luck with that.
So then, in a world apart from God, where does the idea generate from to take another life without cause?
In the midst of unexpected grief, in the center of such chaos, in the heart and mind of a man bent on devildom, there is only one answer; an answer mind you that will be mocked and challenged, but the undeniable proof of a heart gone sideways, and one itself void of answers which cannot be ignored.
An unanswered heart is one to be pitied, one that lacks understanding and does not value life itself, so much so, that with aforethought, a steely resolve and steady hand, ends the life of others in pure massacre. No, it is not enough to kill one self because of so-called perceived injustices, a statement must be made.
And what would that be? Draw your own conclusions, but the one answer that will be avoided which is the most obvious, will be kept from many mouths, and that word is: s.i.n.
That’s right, here was a weed not plucked, which grew, festered, and acted upon its own unbridled rage. Why does a man take the life of a young woman? Because his own deeds were evil. Why does a man take the life of another young man? Because his own deeds were evil.
And when pressed with capture, why did a man end his own life? To escape his own evil deeds. (For the time being anyway) Sin is such a poor master, that expects so much and gives nothing in return, nothing that is, but grief multiplied. Sin rising in the heart is so deceptive, and how many times have you heard: ‘this is such a shock……….he was such a nice person.’
Right, like the devil is nice as well, portraying himself as an angel of light. He is not the horned beast of fiction, but a beautiful yet deceptive attraction that sucks vitality from the living to survive. He is such a great leech, preying on hearts that are bent.
So the killer broke through and destroyed, he as thief stole the life blood from others, again I say, without a cause. Your temperature should rise when hearing this, maybe even a boiling of blood, but do consider if you have not, the ultimate truth of sin, and its effect upon the broken heart of man.
A terrible tragedy here, prayers to the family, and as always, words fail to give comfort in the face of such acts, and if there is any consolation, there will be a day of reckoning, but this certainly does not make it any easier for the loved ones of the deceased here and now.
May the God of all comfort sustain the people seeking answers and comfort.
