Commentary and Analysis

2 Timothy 3:1-5 New International Version (NIV)
3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
We had yet another mass shooting on Friday. Of course, the left and the media, which is the fifth column of the Democratic Party, began to shout for gun control.
However, there is a dynamic that is missing that no one is talking about.
So here it is.
America has lost her moral compass. We took the Ten Commandments out of our schools and in most public school curriculum moral relativism is taught. In other words, there are no absolutes. There is no truth. Truth is what he or she deems it to be.
We have taken the Judaeo/Christian God of the Bible and outlawed him at any school function. This includes praying at a football game.
Teachers are not allowed to discuss God in the classroom, yet these same schools will allow a drag queen to discuss their perverted lifestyle to 6-graders or even younger.
The school system, the ACLU, the force-feeding of the bogus Darwinian “theory” all have contributed to the moral decline in our country.
Then we have Hollywood, which pumps out film after film that glorifies gun violence. How many people die in the Matrix movies? What’s the body-count in a Terminator film, or the Star Wars movies?
Killing, violence, murder are the standard fare from Hollywood. Yet, these “actors” lecture us on our first amendment rights and call for rounding up our guns. They blame Trump and the RNC for the killings. Give me a break. Talk about propaganda!
It’s time to push back. The Church needs to wake up and be heard. We can make a difference.
But here’s the deal. How many of you reading this will hear any of this from the pulpit on Sunday morning?
How many pastors will call for Christian to rise up and defy the status quo?
America has lost her moral compass. I would even go so far as to agree with Obama that America is no longer a Christian nation, as most pastors seem to be hiding behind their pulpits not willing to cry out that we are on a very slippery slope and sliding further into the abyss of moral relatavism.
Then there are the video “games” which glorify mass killings.
Here’s the answer to the massacres that continue and will continue at our schools. It’s simple and Israel already does it. Arm the teachers.
As Rand Paul recently stated, how many shooters have attacked a police station? How many shooters attack a sheriff’s department?
Arm the teachers. Put the ten commandments back up on the wall of every classroom in America.
You shall have no other gods before Me.
You shall not make idols.
You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Honor your father and your mother.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You shall not covet.
How can anyone take issue with these moral absolutes?
America is at a crossroads. We are in the midst of a culture war. We have only one chance to move the ship in the other direction. The pastors and the church need to stand up and be counted.
The pastors were silent in Nazi Germany and we all know what happened.
Stand up! Make a difference. Arm your congregation. As Coach Dave Daubenmire so passionately tells us “DO SOMETHING!!!!”
