You Can’t Legislate Evil!

The news is filled with the tragedy recently at the high school in Florida. My heart cries for the children and the parents and loved ones of those who were killed and hurt. I pray for our Lord’s comfort for them and that He’ll wrap them in His loving arms and love on them.

The other part of the news that flies across the t.v. screen is gun control. I understand the liberals/globalists hidden agenda, if it is actually hidden, of wanting to disarm Americans.

What I don’t understand is how can they think that removing a particular gun from society will stop the evil intent of others. Don’t they know, or are they just stupid, that you cannot legislate evil away!

More than 3,000 innocent people died by airplanes being flown into buildings on 9-11. Do we then hold Boeing or Lockheed responsible or do we hold the evil within the Muslims that did it responsible?

Ford Motor Company, Chevrolet, G.M.C. – all manufacturers of  vehicles. Someone gets behind the wheel and drives 70 m.p.h. into a street filled with innocent people killing many and injuring more. Do we hold Ford Motor Company or whatever manufacturer made the car that was driven responsible or do we hold the crazed driver responsible?

The other part of the news is now screaming bloody murder blaming the NRA for the killings of innocent children. That’s no different than blaming the airplanes or vehicles! How dumb!

Why is the NRA being so viciously attacked when it was the pure and simple evil mind of a man who pulled the trigger? I can’t help but wonder if the liberals/globalists would be satisfied if they can get the AR-15 ban, and then what happens when the next mass shooting is done with a colt 45, a shotgun, a rifle or some other guns? Of course they will want to ban whatever was used and the plot continues to rid innocent people from protecting themselves from those with evil intent.

Wake up people, the guns are only dangerous in the wrong hands and the wrong hands would be the government owning them and not the law-abiding citizens.

More murders are committed with knives than guns. So we better ban those, too. What about victims that are strangled with bare hands? Do we cut off everyone’s hands? That may seem ridiculous to you, which it is, but no more ridiculous than banning a gun that can be leaned against a wall and harms absolutely no one until someone picks it up and with evil in their mind takes it out and starts killing people.

WE CANNOT LEGISLATE EVIL AWAY! The government can pass bills and laws until the ink runs dry and it will NOT stop the people with evil in their heart. Until evil is eradicated from this earth the evil will continue. That will not happen until people’s hearts is changed and we turn back to God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

We live in an evil world and innocent people must be able to defend themselves against that evil and the liberals and globalists who want to disarm us.

My other prayer is that our government leaders get off the back of the NRA and get on the backs of the murderous hands that are slaughtering millions of innocent babies for profit. If there are any hands to be severed it would be those!

Heroic Off-Duty Police Officer Charges Into Florida’s Douglas High School to Defend and Protect

By Lyle Rapacki

Please take a moment to read this account of a “still In-Service Oath Keeper” (a police officer) although “off-duty,” he moved toward the gun fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida last week.

There is no shortage of ink describing police brutality, but strangely pens and computers become quiet and ink is nowhere to be found when an incident occurs requiring the response of a “sheep dog” prepared to protect the flock, even if off-duty and not dressed properly.  Critics abound, but few are those who will deliberately run toward the mayhem, the gun fire, the potential loss of life.  As a Charter Member of Oath Keepers, I am humbled to “know” such heroes.  I look forward to the day I meet Sgt. Jeff Heinrich of the Coral Springs Police Department.  Thank you, Sgt. Heinrich for demonstrating what it looks like to “Serve and Protect” in a moment’s notice, and without any consideration of recognition or even for your own welfare.

The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week has brought into sharp focus the way warning signs were ignored. Yet, as more details emerge, authorities are having to explain why some armed deputies didn’t confront the shooter. While the sheriff is issuing profuse apologies for his deputies’ actions, another agency is looking exceptionally heroic.
[snip]

A second department responded to the emergency, though. The Coral Springs Police Department arrived at the high school and found the sheriff’s deputies hiding behind their cars. So Coral Springs led the way.

As word of this spread, tensions are rising. The day after the shooting, officers from Coral Springs and Broward Country attended a candlelit vigil for victims.

“Coral Springs City Manager Mike Goodrum angrily confronted Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel,” The Daily Mail reports, “in front of a dozen witnesses, over the claims that Israel’s officers had remained outside the high school while students could have been bleeding out inside.”

“Given the horrific events of that day, emotions were running high and the sheriff and I had a heated moment the following evening,” Goodrum told CNN.

“Sheriff Israel and I have spoken several times since and I can assure you that our departments have a good working relationship and the utmost respect for each other.”
That, though, seems to be an effort to calm tensions that are continuing to escalate.
Coral Springs Police Chief Tony Pustizzi (above) sent an internal email that expressed his department’s frustrations.

“I understand that another agency has given the impression that it had provided the majority of the rescue efforts, and that the tremendous work of the Coral Springs Police and Fire Departments has not been recognized,” he said in the email.

“Please know that this issue will be addressed, and the truth will come out in time.”
Well now the truth is out, and the heroism of the Coral Springs Police deserves to be mentioned.

We can now thank Sgt. Jeff Heinrich of the Coral Springs Police Department. Sgt. Heinrich was off duty and unarmed at the time of the shooting. He has close ties to the school, and was actually on campus, watering a baseball field, when the shooting started.

Sgt. Heinrich’s wife is an assistant athletic director at the school. His son is a student. Sgt. Heinrich was wearing shorts and a t-shirt, and was unarmed.

When the fire alarm went off, he didn’t think it was unusual. The panic that ensued changed his mind. When he heard shots, he ran toward the sound of the gunfire. On his way to the school, he found a student who had been shot in the leg. Sgt. Heinrich moved the boy to a dugout and stabilized him with supplies in the baseball team’s first-aid kit.

He then ran back to the school. There, he met a Coral Springs SWAT team member who had extra gear. Sgt. Heinrich threw on an extra vest (one that wasn’t rated to stop rifle fire). The SWAT officer handed over his sidearm so Sgt. Heinrich wouldn’t be unarmed, and they entered the building.

Sgt. Heinrich ran into the chaos. He didn’t wait outside. The officers from Coral Springs led the way. Behind them, paramedics were able to triage and treat the wounded. The SWAT medics from Coral Springs provided crucial support.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Department went in after Coral Springs. This isn’t an attempt to minimize the contributions of those deputies, but to celebrate the heroism of those that took the lead.

Here’s the video of Sgt. Heinrich talking through his actions. It takes him a while to regain his composure.

Angel? Not Me!

I posted this a few years back and now it has come up again – hence time to set the record straight, again. ~~~~~~~~~~

ISN’T SHE BEAUTIFUL?    images[4] (3)

Unlike the Cherubim that have four faces, four wings, feet like a calf’s foot, and sparkle like burnished brass, (Ez.1:5-7) she resembles a beautiful woman. She doesn’t look like the Seraphim with six wings, either. (Is.6:2-3)

I have told the truth but yet I have been chastised and condemned. I’ve been told I’m a “lousy Christian,” “you don’t represent true Christians,” and a “flat-out liar,” because I wrote that we as humans do not become angels when we leave this earth. I was shocked! It still amazes me that so many Christians are ignorant as to this truth. Not just Christians, either. Many believe the lies Satan has put out there.

imagesCA5R2VU6

“THE ANGEL OF THE LORD ENCAMPS ALL AROUND THOSE THAT FEAR HIM, AND DELIVERS THEM.” Ps.34:7

“Those that fear Him.” Every Christian has an angel assigned to him or her and we like to think it’s a beautiful angel with flowing silky hair, satin wings, etc. And it’s wonderful to imagine our loved one that has died is now suddenly a beautiful angel.

But is it true? NO! (Don’t scream at me yet.)

images[5]         images[6]

Angels were created by God, for God, and to be His messengers and serve Him. “… for He commanded, and they were created. Ps.148.5

They are not to be worshiped. Only God through His Son, Jesus Christ, is to be the focus of our worship. (Rev.22:8-9)

imagesCAK3A3FT This little ceramic angel has been created by some talented person. It’s purpose is determined by its creator. That is the same as with God.

He is the Almighty Creator of all things and He had a purpose for creating angels. He made them not only as His messenger but holy, (Mk. 8:38) and they never die like we do. He created humans also with the same purpose. He wants us to be holy and to be His messenger of the gospel throughout the world. We have the choice to be holy or not to be; to believe in Him, through His Son Jesus Christ, or not to believe. Many state they believe in God, well so does Satan! God had a purpose for creating His angels and for creating every human being; to serve and glorify Him!

As Christians we do not die, we just leave our earthly body behind. “nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God being sons of the resurrection.”  Lk. 20:36 (emphasis mine) DID YOU CATCH THAT? EQUAL TO THE ANGELS, NOT TRANSFORMED INTO ANGELS BUT EQUAL TO.

So why do we not suddenly turn into angels when we leave this earthly body?  “…we shall be like Him.” 1Jn.3:2

“For our citizenship is in heaven…the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body…” Phil. 3:20-21 (emphasis mine)

Jesus is not an angel!!!!

Once we enter heaven we will judge the angels. “Do you not know that we shall judge angels?…” 1Cor. 6:3 If we become an angel when we die then we would not be above the angels. Right now we are below the angels, they watch over us.

There are many scriptures that speak about angels but there are none that say we humans become, are transformed, into an angel when we die. We live on, in heaven or in hell. If we are in heaven we are living in and with a love greater than anything we have ever known or can even imagine. There are no more tears, no more suffering, illness, hurt, or pain. We have been released by the grace of Almighty God.  We do not sprout wings nor buzz back to earth to protect those who are left behind. That is what the angels do. We bask in His presence.  If one is not a believer, well I’ve already shown part of that life in my post, “Been there-not going back!”

There is only one way to be guaranteed a seat near God’s Throne, ask Jesus into our heart. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:5

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”‘ John 8:31-32

BOMBSHELL: Florida mass shooting was ALLOWED to happen: Four deputies stood down, led by egomaniacal sheriff exposed as an anti-gun Democrat operative seeking fame

By Mike Adams

(Natural News) With each passing day, the official story of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting continues to unravel. In its place is emerging an increasingly horrifying conspiracy involving Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, whose four deputies appear to have been ordered to stand down and allow the shooting to unfold in order to achieve a higher body count (for political gain).

Astonishing, CNN is accidentally confirming a shocking revelation that adds additional evidence to this conspiracy. In a Feb. 23, 2018 story by the fake news propagandist known as Jake Tapper, CNN admits that four Broward County sheriff’s deputies stood by and watched the shooting take place, refusing to enter the building and stop the shooter. As Tapper writes:

When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff’s deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. The deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles, the sources said, and not one of them had gone into the school.

…Some Coral Springs police were stunned and upset that the four original Broward County Sheriff’s deputies who were first on the scene did not appear to join them as they entered the school, Coral Springs sources tell CNN.

Until this report, we were all aware that one deputy stood by and did nothing while the shooting took place, but this report from CNN raises that number to four, pointing to the likelihood that this was a coordinated stand down order.

Who gave the order? Most likely the deputies’ boss: An anti-gun sheriff, registered as a Democrat, who is said to be “best friends” with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the same Clintonista operative who helped engineer numerous election conspiracies of fraud, destruction of evidence and lying to the government.  Schultz, in case you didn’t remember, is that same Democrat operative who threatened the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for refusing to turn over a laptop that contained incriminating evidence against Imran Awan, a foreign national widely outed for involvement in data theft and national security breaches. As The Daily Caller reports:

Imran Awan, his wife, his two brothers Abid and Jamal, and a friend all worked as IT aides for dozens of Democratic members of Congress. Shortly after WikiLeaks published the Democratic National Committee’s emails and during the lead up to the 2016 election, investigators discovered indications that they were using a server “for nefarious purposes” and “could be reading and/or removing information,” according to a briefing. They were banned from the House network in February 2017, but Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat from Florida, refused to fire Awan.

Sheriff Scott Israel outed as an anti-gun Democrat operative

Sheriff Scott Israel, the sheriff of Broward County where the shooting took place, is widely known to be an anti-gun Democrat operative. For example, during a recent Sean Hannity broadcast entitled “Defending Our Schools,” aired Feb. 22, 2018, a caller outed Israel for colluding with Democrat anti-gun schemers, saying:

I graduated from Stoneman-Douglas in 2004, … the sheriff of my county down here Scott Israel is a politician. He’s a Leftist. He is best friends with Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ted Deutch. He’s not a sheriff. So when people look at our community now because it’s been thrust into the spotlight and they talk about the sheriff’s department, let’s just be real clear… he is not a sheriff, he’s a politician who masquerades behind a badge. The first thing out of his mouth last week… was gun control. (Unintelligible)… Didn’t say hi to our governor  at the press conference, and talked about defeating people who take money from the NRA.

Scott Israel, it turns out, was accused of public corruption long before this shooting. As reported by the Florida Sun Sentinel:

Since winning one of the most powerful elected posts in Broward, Sheriff Scott Israel has hired from the ranks of his political supporters, building a community outreach wing his critics say doubles as a re-election team… A log of employees hired by the sheriff shows 10 workers were hired since 2013 into “outreach” roles, their salaries totalling $634,479… Israel’s opponents say he’s built a publicly funded political machine, paying back supporters with jobs and using them to keep him in office. They say the money could be better spent, particularly after the sheriff complained about not having enough funding to secure the county courthouse, where a murder suspect recently escaped.

In other words, Sheriff Scott Israel uses taxpayer money to fund his own political re-election “outreach” scheme, shoring up his public image while failing to invest financial resources on stopping murderers.

And what better way to steal the limelight for a re-election than to order a “stand down” during a school shooting, then claim to be the savior?

“What have I done differently than Don Shula or Abraham Lincoln or Martin Luther King, Ghandi?” Israel asked critics, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Sheriff Israel’s department had logged 20 calls on the school shooter before the mass murder event… they KNEW he was about to commit murder

Adding to the damning evidence against Sheriff Israel, his department had received 20 calls warning about Nikolas Cruz before he carried out the mass shooting. Yet Israel’s office did nothing. Were they ordered to stand down and let the massacre take place, then ordered to allow the shooting to be carried out, without interference?

“Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Friday that his office found that it had received approximately 20 calls related to Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old suspected of carrying out Florida’s deadliest high school shooting that left 17 people dead,” reports The Washington Examiner:

CNN reported that the sheriff’s department had been called to Cruz’s house more than 30 times since 2010. According to one incident report unearthed by the news network, professionals and officers wrote that Cruz suffers from mental illness and had mentioned he was interested in purchasing a gun.

Even more alarmingly, Israel’s office had been specifically warned that Cruz was poised to carry out a mass shooting. As reported by Zero Hedge:

…the most serious warning came on November 30, 2017, when a caller located in Massachusetts advised that Cruz was collecting knives and was likely to conduct a school shooting. The caller was concerned Cruz would kill himself and “be a school shooter in the making.” They believed that Cruz’s weapons were kept at a friend’s house.

Listen the Sheriff Scott Israel regurgitate Democrat anti-gun talking points in this Laura Loomer video clip (note, the audio is very poor quality):

Here’s the picture that’s shaping up of a dark conspiracy to sacrifice innocent children in order to target the Second Amendment

What does this all mean? Increasingly, it looks like the school shooting massacre was allowed to take place by Scott Israel, making sure the disturbed, deranged teen was never arrested or even detained for a mental health evaluation. They knew he would eventually pop off on a deadly rampage, and they did nothing to stop it.

Once the shooting began, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that Israel’s deputies were ordered to stand down, making sure the shooter had sufficient time to achieve a high enough body count that would catapult Scott Israel into the national spotlight, gaining him political points while launching a new, nationwide anti-gun initiative that has always been the “end game” goal of Democrat operatives like Obama, Clinton and Schultz.

Consider: Who gains from this mass shooting? Who had the motive?

Clearly, the Democrats raked in huge gains. Not only did they immediately start fundraising off the tragedy, they are also exploiting the dead and traumatized children as weapons to target their political enemies (conservatives and the NRA). CNN also chalked up huge gains from the event, gaining a huge, nationwide audience for its 100% fake, staged “town hall” circus that looked more like an episode of Jerry Springer than anything resembling a serious news event.

Even more importantly, the school shooting shifted the news narrative away from the uncovering of criminal conspiracies involving FBI traitors James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and other deep state operatives who are being increasingly outed by congressional investigations.

None of this would have been possible of even one of Israel’s deputies had entered the school and engaged Nikolas Cruz with return fire. Such an action — for which these deputies are well trained, by the way — would have immediately halted the casualties and ended the bloodshed. Yet there wasn’t a single Broward County sheriff’s deputy who entered the building during the mass shooting. They literally stood by and did nothing while gunshots rang out and children were slaughtered.

That this happened is not in dispute. Even the Coral Springs police — who rushed to the scene, entered the building and ended the slaughter — are fully aware that Sheriff Israel and his deputies were deliberately engaged in what can only be called “dereliction of duty.” As reported by CNN, authored by none other than Jake Tapper:

The resentment among Coral Springs officials toward Broward County officials about what they perceived to be a dereliction of duty may have reached a boiling point at a vigil the night of February 15, where, in front of dozens of others, Coral Springs City Manager Mike Goodrum confronted Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. A source familiar with the conversation tells CNN that Goodrum was upset that the Broward deputies had remained outside the school while kids inside could have been bleeding out, among other reasons.

“Instead of rushing in, several Broward sheriff’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while a killer gunned down schoolchildren, according to other officers on the scene,” reports The Sun Sentinel. “In all, at least three deputies waited outside, including School Resource Officer Scot Peterson, police sources told the Sun Sentinel.”

My assessment as an award-winning independent journalist and investigator

In my assessment, none of this was an accident. There are no coincidences in the “no holds barred” bloodsport of politics and gun control. The Left learned very well from Sandy Hook that if enough children are murdered, Democrats can gain tremendous traction on their anti-Second Amendment narrative. Have no doubt that Democrats would easily sacrifice a few dozen children of it means winning the 2018 mid-terms and impeaching President Trump.

Here’s what I believe actually happened:

  1. Over the last two years, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel became aware of a deranged teen and his threats to carry out mass murder, then realized he could exploit the situation for his own political gain.
  2. In order to exploit the situation, when the mass shooting event began, Israel ordered his deputies to stand down, ensuring a large body count. His deputies stood by and intentionally did nothing. The shooting would have been even worse if not for the Coral Springs Police who rushed to the scene, breached the building and halted the violence.
  3. Immediately after the mass shooting took place, Scott Israel sought out the TV cameras and claimed credit for halting the shooting, immediately framing himself as a “savior” character — remember, he likens himself to Abraham Lincoln — while calling for anti-gun legislation to “save the children.” (Wow, what a God-like savior!)
  4. His actions also gain major points with his Democrat operative friends like Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who has been at the center of every major political scam and scandal over the last two years, including the DNC’s fraudulent vote rigging against Bernie Sanders.

It’s clear to me that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is an anti-gun political hack, a Democrat operative, a schemer and a liar. One thing I’ve learned over all the years of working as an award-winning independent journalist and investigator is that Democrats will easily sacrifice children to achieve sufficient political gain. In exactly the same way that Eric Holder and Barack Obama ran Operation Fast & Furious to have Americans murdered in the quest for gun control, it looks like Sheriff Scott Israel oversaw the “allowed mass killing” of schoolchildren in Florida in order to elevate his own fame and fortune while furthering his political party’s gun control agenda, built on the dead bodies of innocent children who didn’t have to die that day… if only just one of Israel’s deputies would have entered the building and engaged the killer.

That’s why today, I call on President Trump to initiate a federal investigation into Sheriff Scott Israel’s department to determine why his deputies were ordered to stand down while this shooting was under way. There’s no question in my mind that any sufficiently rigorous investigation will turn up convincing evidence that Sheriff Israel was complicit in the deaths of those high school children and teachers who were killed.

And yes, for the record, I am claiming that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is complicit in the deaths of those children. The evidence is obvious, and the pattern is clear. This is the way Democrats routinely operate to achieve their political goals or cover their tracks. (Yes, Seth Rich was murdered by DNC operatives.)

Gun Control is not About Guns and it is NOT the Answer to Mass shootings: I Have the Answer to Stopping Mass Shootings

By Greg Holt

(The Olive) After the recent Florida school shooting there has of course been the inevitable cry once again to ban the AR-15, it’s a dangerous assault rifle you know.

Actually, that could not be more untrue – the AR-15 is not an assault rifle nor is it a high-powered rifle, it’s not even a fully automatic rifle, which is the impression you get listening to some of the fools in the media who have no idea what they are talking about.

When was the last time you heard a call to ban the 22 Rifle? Never happened right? The AR-15 is basically a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle. Yes it can fire other rounds such as the 5.56 NATO – which is basically a .22 bullet with a little more gunpowder behind it.

If we are going to ban the AR-15, we will need to ban the .22 rifle and the .223 rifle as well, after all they are all 22s. The media engineered frenzy over the AR-15 is completely ridiculous. It is a simple rifle many use for target practice given it’s high accuracy and even home defense – oh yeah, and it looks cool too.

With the recent Florida school shooting and the Las Vegas massacre before that – and given the fact that so many (mainly Leftist gun grabbers) are clamoring for gun control, President Trump has ordered the Justice Department to initiate the banning of “bump stocks”.

Bump stocks are another misunderstood piece of equipment thanks in large part to the media’s exaggerations and outright lies. The media, and I even heard Fox News inaccurately report this today – say that bump stocks allow a semi-automatic rifle to fire as a fully automatic weapon like a machine gun or an M-16. This is not true, bump stocks allow much faster firing of a semi-automatic rifle, but the rifle is not full on automatic.

The problem with banning bump stocks is they can easily be made at home cheaply. A simple Google search – “can I make my own bump stock” yields over 10 million results, a bump stock can even be made using a 3D printer! Are the police going to be sent into every home in America to check if anyone has made their own bump stock?

The real problem we face with the mass shootings in this country has absolutely nothing to do with guns, and everything to do with people. Guns have been in this country for a long time, everybody and their brother has a gun. However, twenty years ago, there were not many if any mass shootings. What changed, the guns or we the people? Unless you are an idiot, you know the answer to this question. Make all the gun control laws you want, it’s not going to fix the problem of mass shootings and increased violence until the real underlying problems are addressed.

The outright banning of guns – which is what the Leftist Liberal fools are after BTW, will accomplish nothing. Oh wait, I’m wrong, it willaccomplish something. Banning guns in America (like Australia did) will hand over power to the criminals. It will also enable the government (whom will still possess guns) to control the people. If a criminal knows that no one is allowed to have weapons any longer, then EVERY American has a target painted on their back. Illegal or not, the criminal element WILL get guns, if you disagree, you are a fool.

I have the perfect example for you, America’s schools. K-12 schools are mandated “gun free zones” – this is the most ignorant policy ever devised. Our children and the teachers and other staff are sitting ducks for anyone who decides to waltz in the door with weapons in hand. Just check out the Florida school shooting if you doubt that. Schools and everyone in them have a huge target painted on their backs that effectively screams – shoot me, I can’t stop you!

How to Stop Mass Shootings

In our schools, we need to immediately end this “gun free zone” idiocy. Armed guards and possibly armed teachers along with the installation of metal detectors would pretty much end the mass shooting problem. But you will say, people don’t like exposing their kids to metal detectors and armed staff – well would you rather expose them to their friends being shot to death? Metal detectors are in airports, many government buildings etc., why not schools? How much is your child’s life worth?

The main problem in America with all the shootings and violence is this: parenting. Yes I said parenting. Not all parents obviously, but a great many. Through the various jobs I have done over the years, I have been in many homes, many, many, many, homes. The things I have seen are utterly appalling.

When I was growing up, mass shootings were unheard of, why is that? Parenting.

Lets look at the differences here. Years ago, parents actually parented! Parents knew what their kids were doing, where they were, and who their friends were. Parents searched their children’s rooms if need be, too bad if we did not like it. There was discipline when we did wrong, we were afraid to come home from school after screwing up, because we knew we were in trouble. Parents worked with the teachers, not telling them to F off.

Today it’s a whole different ball game. What passes for parenting in many households is an extremely bad joke, and this so-called parenting is harming the children who have no idea how to function in society while at the same time having no idea what it is like to feel loved and cared for. If parents today actually parented, and God was an important fixture in the life of today’s kids, most of these problems would evaporate.

What are the Common Problems in Parenting Today?

As I said, I have personally seen a lot of what goes on in today’s homes; I have as well worked with problem teens. A common factor is lack of parenting and if the kids/young adults are honest, they feel a distinct lack of love from their parents.

When parents use the Internet, TV, movies, and video games as the preferred method to entertain and occupy their children, well bad things come of that. Parents don’t spend time with their kids; instead they buy them video games, videos, the Internet, and have no idea what their children are really doing. They allow their kids to watch violent movies, play very violent video games, (after all, it’s only a game right?) let them come and go as they please, have no idea who their friends are, and basically have no clue how their own children spend their time. When there are the inevitable problems in school, parents scream and curse at the teachers and blame them for their child’s poor behavior!

I want you to take the time to read this rant posted on Facebook that a Florida school teacher made, it is so spot-on that every teacher, every politician, everyone who works with kids, and every parent should be required to read it, no kidding. It will only take a minute of your time.

Florida schoolteacher’s epic (and true) rant on the reason for mass shootings etc.

Until everyone in this country understands that strong, loving parenting, the value of a strong family, and the reverence of God is what is needed – nothing is going to change. All the laws, all the rules, all the punishment, and all the empty headed talking heads – will make no difference at all. None of what is being done today has worked yet has it? What makes anyone think the same course of action is going to work tomorrow?

Thursday’s Pen Tip – Your Sun has not Dimmed

“He who loves you see’s the light within you, whether you do or not. As is the sun, it burns brightly, it does not dim but only seems to move to other areas, which is only your perception. It is merely covered by clouds, yet its brilliance can still be seen by those who do not have clouds hindering sight.

It warms the world, be it an inner world, or the physical world. It does not dim for the brilliance is that of God Almighty.

Your sun has not dimmed, you may be shrouded in clouds. Yet you are the light of the world around you, because He is the Light within you.”
