Inconvenient Human Life
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44)
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (1Peter 5:8)
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE, TODAY, that a grown man with a fairly good education (as we think of education) will take a gun and shoot down a group of innocent people at the Tree of Life Jewish Synagogue in Philadelphia that he doesn’t know? Is he sick or evil or both? Millions of people in America, religious and not-so-religious go through life rubbing shoulders with each other without a thought of killing anyone.
IN MY OPINION, THE SURGE OF VIOLENCE WE ARE SEEING IN AMERICA comes straight out of the culture of death we have created in murdering 60-million innocent babies in the wombs of their mothers since 1973. Every baby that’s murdered, requires the signature of its mother on a form given her by the doctor or nurse. So, 60-million people have signed a death warrant for another human being in America since 1973.
THAT IS WIDE-SPREAD PARTICIPATION IN THE PRACTICE OF MURDERING PEOPLE as a convenience. If it’s ok to kill little, innocent people out of convenience, then there’s less problem in killing someone if you hate them or get mad at them. I also believe that the Devil (who is a real person and has awesome power) is driving many people to murder people.
THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT MAKE MOTHERS KILL THEIR BABIES. The government gives the mother of the child the freedom to murder her baby if she decides to have it done. We are killing inconvenient human life. Hitler’s people in NAZI Germany killed 300,000 “useless bread eaters” before they began killing Jews. The government sent vans to the houses to pick up people during the night. They got rid of sick and handicapped Germans who were no longer able to work. I just did a Google search and came up with this.
BREITBART NEWS AGENCY REPORTS: "Crime statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) show that more people were killed with hammers and clubs than with rifles of every kind in 2017. "According to the Uniform Crime Report, (click on the link and see the report) 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed were rifles. The FBI report also reveals that 692 people were killed with “personal weapons” like “hands, fists, feet, etc..” and that is higher than the number of people killed with rifles and shotguns combined.
LET ME MAKE IT CLEAR that Breitbart is not my favorite news agency. I don’t carry water for them. But, neither is the New York Times, Washington Post, and Politico and others. But I still read/scan them. Some of the “fact finding” sites such as Snopes must be taken with a grain of salt. I scan several leading papers on both sides of the political spectrum as it fits my purpose for the day.
DURING ONE TRIP TO WASHINGTON I visited the Newseum that has the front page of 745 leading newspapers posted and you can get them online. http://www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/ I don’t have time to scan 745 newspapers, but I do like to keep up with the general trend of news by scanning a wee bit. For political opinion, I like the Jewish World Review which features about 90 leading political writers. I do miss Charles Krauthammer. You can research some things at the Congressional Library https://www.loc.gov/rr/main/research/ .
MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN AMERICA OWN GUNS WHO DON'T SHOOT ANYONE. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2015 there were 320 million people in America and 265 million guns. There are 112.6 guns per 100 residents. I must point out that, while the U. S. Census tries hard to count people and other things in the United States, it is at best an estimate. I do not believe everyone who has a gun is going to tell the U. S. Census Bureau that they have a gun. Americans simply do not trust their government that well.
IT IS GENERALLY AGREED THAT THERE ARE ABOUT 300 MILLION GUNS owned by law-abiding citizens. Some claim that the people own something like 40 trillion rounds of ammunition. The states and cities that have some of the most stringent gun control laws have the greatest rate of gun murders, such as Chicago.
SEVERAL YEARS AGO, I WAS DOING SOME READING on the activities of the Japanese War Lords prior to World War II. Yamamato, who was trained in the United States, had become one of the men in that circle. When they were planning to bomb the U. S. Naval Fleet anchored in Pearl Harbor, some of the Japanese war lords were suggesting that when they were through bombing Pearl Harbor, they should have troop ships ready on the shoreline of California and mount an invasion. That was in 1941.
YAMAMATO ADAMANTLY OPPOSED THE IDEA. He told them: “In America, there’s a gun behind every blade of grass and you don’t want to tangle with such a highly armed nation of people.” Today, there are more Americans and more guns.
OK, I'VE STRAYED FROM MY SUBJECT. But I must make the point here that the hearts of people become wicked and they are willing to kill people out of hatred, guns or no guns. Hands, feet and fists kill more people than all the rifles and shotguns combined.
ROAD RAGE TAKES A TOLL. “According to a study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety that examined police records nationally, there are more than 1,200 incidents of road rage on average reported per year in the United States, a number of which have ended with serious injuries or even fatalities.”
BOTTOM LINE: The devil urges: “If you get in the way of what I want, I will kill you!” Cain killed his brother Abel with his anger (Genesis 4:5,8). If a man is angry and has no regard for human life, he will kill you. Give the devil credit where credit is due: he works hard at driving people to kill each other.
