Violence in the land...
A few days ago, a brother in law school wrote:
As the enormity and wickedness of this morning’s school shooting begins to sink in, we see everywhere grief and righteous indignation. Our president’s statement well expresses that sentiment: “Beautiful little kids . . . [they] had their entire lives ahead of them. Birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.”
We recognize that murder is the worst sort of theft, especially with the young and innocent.
So how is it that our moral sentiments are so clear and without qualification? How is it that we can mourn these murders, yet turn a blind eye to...the unrelenting slaughter of children in the womb? And why are we surprised to find murderers in our midst when our own supreme court has held that we have the right as individuals to define life?
It is sad day for America, so much sadder for our utter failure to give a damn about the 3,700 children who were murdered today by abortion. Those children will never graduate, get married or have children, either—in fact, they’ll never even see the light of day.
Remember what God says at the end of the book of Joel: “I will avenge their blood, blood I have not avenged, for the Lord dwells in Zion" (Joel 3:21).
May the Lord have mercy on us.
