When David, king of Israel, led astray by his regal pride and human desires killed a man after sleeping with the man’s wife, the Lord took notice and imposed a penalty. It seems to me that people think that atrocities like Israeli theft of East Jerusalem property or homicides with guns in the United States of America will have no consequences. An eighteen year old shooting up children in their classroom in Texas is another example of evil individuals trying to stop the education of the next generation. The next generation, despite being targeted for assassination, will be more than patriotic and insular robots and the leadership that thinks it can stack the courts with tainted judges will wax worse and worse. Who can forget Mitch McConnell’s version of impartial justice or Devin Nunes’ trips to the White House during he impeachment of the 45th president? The homicidal outbursts in human history are the direct outcome of both of lawful and lawless obsession. In Texas they proudly drink the sauce of armed insurrection when a crooked businessman calls, and they guzzle inaction when the lives of innocent educators and their students scream, for almost an hour, for service and protection.
A drunken stupor affects large swathes of humanity, and it is not an exclusively American phenomenon.
What a pathetic besotted mob!
The institutions and traditions of Israel and Judah have not been adopted by any civilization, so neither Jerusalem, the original beneficiary, nor any of the capitals claiming inspiration from Sinai or Golgotha have seen even a truncated era of proven viability. The fearful (and abominable, see Revelation 21:18) Caucasian crew that sees immigrants as a threat cannot be expected to be rational or neighborly. If a repeated mantra could convince the public that MAGA fans were to be trusted the quasi-governor of Texas just brought the house down.
Get the narrative straight or let the police tell it
The performance behind the microphone in Uvalde was Governor Abbot’s trademark bluster and bravado but it could not hide the outrage of police holding back the parents while an eighteen year old slaughtered their children in their classroom. People sworn to go towards gunfire in a jurisdiction where eighteen year olds can acquire a weapon designed for war who choose to wait while ten year olds are murdered need to be sworn out.
The time is way past up
Why have you despised the word of the Lord by doing evil in His sight? You have struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword, have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the sons of Ammon. Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife. (2 Samuel 12:9-10, NASB)Perpetual violence in David’s household
The sword shall never depart from your house
There is a fantasy parading as fidelity to noble ideals is spreading all over the world. It sneaks around in places of worship and in legislatures desperately trying to wed the underlying evils of politics to a spiritual accountability.
Bribed to do nothing about mass murder
The revolution will not be replayed and guns have not prevented the spread of fascism, nazism, or lying ignorant people posing as experts and leaders.
Cursed is he who accepts a bribe to strike down an innocent person. And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’Deuteronomy 27:25, NASB
But your eyes and your heart are intent only upon your own dishonest gain, and on shedding innocent blood and on practicing oppression and extortion. Jeremiah 22:17, NASB
Nothing to see here
Freedom denied and slavery forgotten have unsheathed a sword on the United States that will never depart and the proof that one idolized amendment to a constitution will make an entire nation a bleeding mecca.
War – homicide – death
It is questionable that homicide – The American War of Independence – cut the ties between brutal England and her North American colonies. The military and peace officer services of the United States have not failed to keep alive atrocious attitudes, policies and practices. Texan official leadership publicly wants to be the Keeper of the Keys of the Right of Violent Insurrection, which only means that the rule of law is bovine fecal matter to such people. By their repeated kicking their responsibility for all the people and especially children down the road the people’s representatives – Democrat, Republican and Independent – are mired in genocidal icecream. They think that guns will save them when their day of decision comes. The civil war and the world trade center inferno have taught them nothing. So political hacks can say there’s nothing to see here. Whoop de do! Another bad guy committing a crime while they have done nothing to make sure that that crime can be reduced.
Resources to reduce murders are not in place but access to weapons of mass destruction is a rite of passage in Christian America. Politics and faith are strange bedfellows no matter what cliches believers use to prostitute themselves to the state. They really do not know what JESUS thinks of the enablers of the massacres of innocent children and non-Caucasian people. They ought to know what he has to say to the National Rifle Association and the political charlatans it bankrolls. Time’s up, pals.
