A Reminder We Are In The Middle Of A Spiritual War (The Newtown School Shooting Incident Friday)

15 Dec

Yesterday, when I first heard of the horror shooting incident that took place at the Newtown, CT, elementary school, the Sandy Hook School, I was SHOCKED, SICKEN, and WITH GREAT SORROW by the unfolding of this recent heartbreaking and tragic current eventHearing about the innocent children who were slaughtered, plus the adults as well, I ended up screaming in HORROR that innocent children, including those who are just beginning their formal learning had no chance to live a life in full.

What even SHOCKED me even more was that, the young man who did the killing, a 20-year-old man by the name of Adam Lanza,was described as suffering from a a personality disorder” was the person who brought to the guns to the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, United States of America, after having killed his own mother,  Nancy Lanza before driving to the school to do his VERY EVIL DEED. He went on to kill not only the school principal, Dawn Hochsprung, and up to  four more adults, but went on to kill up to twenty children, before he turned the gun on himself to kill himself as well.

My HEART BREAKS for those who were killed by Mr. Lanza as well as for all their family, relatives, friends, and a whole community that MUST deal with this horrible incident. My prayers and condolences go to the families of the victims who must, before this all happened, was getting ready to celebrate the Christmas holidays and the Christmas and New Year‘s vacations to instead having to plan to have funerals instead. For the parents of those who children who had died, having known people who have lost children themselves, up close and personal, no parent should have to bury their son or daughter. Adding this, no spouse, finance, or significant other should have to end up burying their beloved partner, this coming from one  who had to do so this very year herself.

While there are never any easy answers, one answer right now that I want to have anything to do with, let alone trying to debate me is the issue of “gun control.” To those who are in public office or who have an agenda in order to be divisive in an already very divided American society, I have NO PATIENCE or ENERGY to debate anyone who is trying to use this horrible tragic situation to promote gun control. The SAD REALITY is that no amount of gun control laws would have prevented an Adam Lanza from carrying out his evil deed. As further proof, in China, there was a massive stabbing of children, using a knife. Do we need to have “knife control” also?

On the issue of Mr. Lanza having a “personality disorder”, please, I myself, as well as having known and befriended a number of people who have had to deal with challenges, both physical and mental, and having a challenge is NO EXCUSE for what Mr. Lanza did on Friday at that the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, United States of America. Those who have challenges STRUGGLE enough just to be able to be at peace with themselves and the cross of having to deal with the challenges, let alone even think of carrying out what had happened yesterday on that mid December Friday morning.

What had taken place yesterday is a reminder that all of us are in the middle of a SPIRITUAL WAR, that involves Hell against Heaven, what is evil against what is holy, and of Satan with his legions of demons, against God and His angels. There can be NO DOUBT that what happened yesterday is a very big reminder of what is truly is going on. All of us is living in this very dark, dangerous, and difficult times.

The one REAL CONFORT I can take in reflecting on this is that, those who died children and adults who died because of what Mr. Lanza did by this very evil action are now HOME in the Kingdom of Heaven, as martyrs who are now saints, in the loving arms of the Good Shepherd, the King of Kings, and the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ. When I light tonight the 3 Advent candles, I will be thinking about this very special comfort in both my mind and heart.

    No one died in the China knife attack. I doubt we would be saying that if the attacker had used one of the millions of guns that are so easy to obtain in the U.S.

    But still, is there any calls to make illegal knives? No, Plus this knife-stabbing event gets lost in the memory hole.
