May the Lord cause repentance and revival in the land. I pray that his people stand up courageous in reality for his name sake. Grant us grace to help in time of need. May HE be our arm, sword, shield, and helmet.
Thanks. Once we learn that these types prey on emotion, it simplifies our stance. It will no doubt morph into label making. Like racist, facist, homophobic, etc. They're bedrock is emotion. Not logic.
Lets pray that grace and truth would shine through from us to calm and convict those we come in contact with. The time is short.
There is a video of a street preacher preaching to the crowd of the festival as they were in line to get in. The hope is that he was able to reach at least some people there. Its on youtube.
To whom it may concern... There are several videos taken by multiple cell phones from different vantage points on youtube. It helps to see them all to know just how fishy it is. One in particular is from a cab driver at the base of Mandalay bay. You can clearly hear not only the gun shots from the hotel. But from farther away as well.
Bro Dave, Sorry. Typo. I meant ingest. Disbelief is a good word to use on this topic. Unfortunately massacres like this happen in other countries with not as much media coverage. It's just that the ones here have more weight to them because of the theater of it all. This Modern American debacle is a theatrical spectacle that is meant to move the emotions of people. But we can't be moved by emotion. Touched by it yes. But emotion shouldn't be the gavel in our hand pronouncing judgment. Love you brother.
MS... love you too sister
See jim, thats how saints should converse with one another.
I understand that being from Australia you don't understand from the American perspective. Ownership of firearms is a fundamental right based on the founding document of the country. The only reason that a dictatorship or a totalitarian state hasn't overtaken this country is because of that right. So it's in the best interest of evil intentions to sensationalize and create this reality TV type drama. As sick and sad as it is. Movies and TV amd music have glorified gun violence for a long time. I say get rid of the glorification not the arms.
But based on what the word of God says, it's probably bound to happen.
I would just hope people would look at this issue critically period and not just in jest what ever they see through the media. The whole thing is fishy.
Race has nothing to do with it. You bringing this into the discussion only proves how far from logic and reality you and your comrades are. Again, you insert childish emotion as the basis of your argument. But I get it, you've got to earn your paycheck.
Its not a right /left issue. It's a good vs evil issue.
You can ban guns, swords, knives, Spears, spoons, butter knives, Forks, shards of glass,etc....
Evil will light a fire.
But I guess you and your comrades want to control fire too?
If my son hit someone with a stick, I don't burn the stick. I reprimand my son. It wasn't the sticks fault.
The scripture you quoted is for believers. Oh that the world would live it as well. But we know that they don't. Hey, i rarely see that in the professing church either.
White identity types? Why do you insert race into the discussion? Once again you use this leftist name calling tactic to frame a side as wrong. Its school yard, whos in, whos not, cool kid talk. It works on the ignorant and unstable. Not here jim. To much logic.
Im not going to get into a long political debate. So i will leave you with this...
The second amendment says... "the right to bare arms shall not be infringed..." so just like we are supposed to do with scripture, we look at what it says. Not what we want it to say. Closed case. You can say its for hunting turkeys. Others would say its for protection. Both are correct.
Yes... the story is strange. As with the other mass shootings. Usually involves one shooter who is dead shortly after the smoke settles. Its hard to fathom one man reigning down so much carnage. This one man was a multimillionaire who owned at least 4 homes. Three of which he rented out for income. Strange. I personally know people who had family at that concert. The stories are horrible. What keeps bugging me is that none of the stage hands thought to turn off that big spot light at the front of the stage. It would have saved lives.
Im not a big "gun guy". But the idea that outlawing guns would stop these massacres is false. People using cars or knives or explosives have already proven that.
I saw a picture once that really made me think. It had a photo of three American Indians with rifles in their hands. The caption read..."give up your arms. The government will take care of you."
I grew up relatively "normal", lol. Whatever that means. I graduated as a highschool dropout into the "mean streets". A valuable lesson in human nature. When you deal with the dark side of life and the street mentality, you see the world in a more cynical way. If a gang or mafia can so control communities and industries undercover... than imagine what the devils henchmen can do with the power of government, universities, and media.
If you will, ponder these powers of persuasion in your own lives. Some have pursued careers and endeavours that advanced technology to what it is because of what nasa did. Or because they saw 2001 a space Odyssey, or star wars. Going to universities, burdened with student loans and molded in the mind. Powerful control. For some the indoctrination is to much to change the mind. Money, career, higher learning, security, retirement. Powerful bondage.
Television arrived. Minds were now being moved not only by what they heard, but could now see. Very powerful. Man was ready to be entertained. The space race elevated the game. Families had dinner in front of the television to watch man walk on the moon. Now... all things were possible in the minds of man. Man began pursuing pushing the boundaries to were we are now. Now you can connect to the whole world with a swipe of your thumb, as im doing right now. Microchips can be placed under the skin for tracking. Man is pursuing the merging with computers.
And what is happening because of all these things? The whole world is becoming one.
There was simpler times, simpler lives not long ago. The Bible reigned supreme over the lives of majorities in the western world. The "age of reason" sprouted. The sciences. Universities. Medicine. Psychology, literature, science-fiction, etc.. quickly, western man began promoting ideas and industries that consumed the minds and time of the citizens. Homes were electrified. Plumbed with running water. Radios in homes captivated nations. Orson wells war of the worlds caused panic. Science-fiction got planted and took root.
