You have probably heard about the Santa Monica shooting.
Another radical Muslim, this one they claim had mental issues and was distraught because his parents were getting a divorce.
If you live in California and think you are immune from divorce, you do have mental issues.
Can we just get along?
Seems like I write about this almost daily.
Friends, America needs to heal, and America needs to repent.
Not just in the Christian sense of the word, repent. Although, that would be nice as well.
But, with the progressive hate mongering, there has been too much sociological stress placed upon people. And when people are stressed out, they often ‘act out.‘
This time his acting out was not through drugs and sex, although he may have done that as well, but through violence.
He wanted his attention. He hurt, so he wanted everyone else to hurt.
When I was in college, a friend was hitting on my date. I acted out, and I punched a wall to hurt me and distract from my pain.
Because I did not want to hurt the cause of my pain, my soon to be former friend.
I was in control, even though it was not the most fun evening I ever had.
This young Arab man went from painful acting out to out of control quickly.
Violent social unrest is a consequence of violent social change.
I have blogged on the Gay Marriage problem, the divorce problem, the cultural decline in America. And often I am asked how it harms me.
Today it is harming every one of US. You are either one of US in pain, you are causing pain, or you are in denial.
Where are you on the scale?
Mr. President Obama, we need godly leadership. You do not have to invoke the name of Jesus to make me happy, but we need true confession and repentance before God.
Personally, I think true contrition is accompanied by submission to Jesus. But, that part of faith is often personal.
I am praying for my country. I am praying the progressive radicalization of America will stop for twenty or thirty years, so America has time to heal from our deep wounds.
And naturally, I pray in the name of the Creator, our Advocate, Jesus Christ.
That is how I am dealing with my pain and sorrow.
How are you dealing with your pain over this tragedy?
