We Don't Need Your Thoughts & Prayers

Another shooting, yes, another one.  If we do nothing then we are complicit.  We have been, for a long time, a nation who allows it's children to die at school, so we can have our guns.  We allow innocent club goers, concert goers, people enjoying a night on the town, all these innocent weekend dwellers to be gleaned from families and communities.  We offer our thoughts and prayers.  And we go back to placing our order at the drive thru, clicking on our baskets on Amazon, sending our texts.

Make no mistake about it, we will be held accountable.  We are damning ourselves with our laziness, with our excuses and with our justification for keeping things just as they are.  Because it will soon happen so frequently that it will happen 100 miles away instead of 1000 and then it will happen to someone we used to know and then it will show up in our Facebook feed and then it will happen to someone we went to school with, then it will happen in the town a few miles down the road.

And then our own children will be involved.  Will it matter then?

I like what one woman did in the story I've linked to below, click it and read, I may just do this.  I need to do more and I plan to, because I've never contacted my senators or any political representative for that matter.  I need to and I plan to because it's not all up to them, it's up to us.  I"m a parent and I plan to say something. (See James 2:14-17)

thoughts and prayers

Ezekiel 33:1-6 "The word of the Lord came to me:  “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman,  and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people,  then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their own head.  Since they heard the sound of the trumpet but did not heed the warning, their blood will be on their own head. If they had heeded the warning, they would have saved themselves.  But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood."

Just a quick reminder, language may not be appropriate for children.

In the wake of all these allegations of sexual assault going back for years against big name stars I thought I would remind everyone who our president is...I'm just going to leave this right here, draw your own conclusions.

An Alternative to the Nashville Statement...
