I dare any professional Christian to preach on the relationship of Christ crucified and the idol that is the 2nd amendment to the U.S. constitution. While Jesus is the solution, Christianity is the problem.
Anyone with eyes, ears, and a conscious knows that things are very, very wrong in the United States. For most it’s self evident that things cannot continue has they are, and yet we feel helpless to do anything to fix the problems. I submit that helplessness you feel is the self evident sign of idolatry. Yes, violence is part of the world, that is the self evident truth scripture tells in the story of Cain murdering Abel, which by the way is the first time the word sin appears in scripture. Whether or not one is religious, it is self evident to those not caught up in the thrall of the U.S. idol that more violence will not stop the killings. source
