Thoughts on Orlando

After hearing about the Orlando Shooting today I went to a local shop to buy some soda and some snacks. When I got to the check-out, the attendant was lamenting “the kind of people they (and a local McDonald's) have to serve.”

I asked her about the Orlando shooting and she talked about how horrible that was. I told her that the kind of people that the poorer people in the neighborhood have to deal with are the kind that will try to blame a St. Louis homeless shelter for the Orlando shooting. She said nothing more to me in response to that.

The Orlando shooting is a tragedy; it is a deep dark, horrible crime.

There are, however, deep, dark , horrible crimes going on in the society of the America of Political Correctness that are constantly and loudly lauded as being good things, such as the supposed “right” of a woman to put her own children to death simply for the sake of perceived convenience.

Too many are the people who are quick to call out what they see as evil without ever once looking first back at their own wickedness and evil. As it is written, “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” If you sow wickedness you will also reap wickedness, and this society has been sowing wickedness for a very long time.

The harvest has barely begun. Except this society relent and repent, wickedness, darkness, horror and blight will be the full and complete inventory of the fruit they shall reap—able, honestly, to blame no one but themselves, for had they repented, the Lord would have relented. Witness the situation in the book of Jonah, and see if I do not speak truly.

The Scriptures also command us, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

If you desire to reap goodness and light, then first sow it yourself.
