Another school campus. This one in Santa Clarita, CA.
I think it is evil pure and simple!
I know that seems like a non sequitur or unprovable hypothesis yet like Rod Serling used to say on the Twilight Zone, "Submit for your approval" or consideration.
Evil abounds in our world, always has yet seemed to no longer loiter in the darkness or shadows.
The Bible mentions, evil kings, evil things and suggests many actions are enticed by evil thoughts leading to wickedness!
Skelton … The Pledge of Allegiance 1971
and a definition for each
-- Me; an individual; a committee of one.
-- Dedicate all of my worldly good to give without self-pity.
-- My love and my devotion.
the Flag -- Our standard. “Old Glory”; a symbol of Freedom. And
wherever she waves, there is respect, because your loyalty has given
her a dignity that shouts “Freedom is everybody's job.”
the United -- That means we have all come together.
-- Individual communities that have united into 48 great states; 48
individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose; all
divided by imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and
that’s love of country, of America.

Thinking of POW/MIA Week and POW/MIA Day recognition brought to my mind some of my past veterans activities as
chaplain to military veterans.
I recall a veterans recognition
activity I attend in Colorado Springs CO. where we lived in the
later 1990's. I would have attended normally but upon arrival I was
recognized as the chaplain serving at the state level for the
Disabled American Veterans and was invited to set in the front row.
As I recall I was seated next to an ordinary gentleman in jeans and
open collar shirt, he politely introduced himself as “Newt” and
ask about me, my chaplains vest and the DAV cap.
Exo 20:4“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
5.Youshall not bow down to them or worship them;
I am afraid that society has never considered that denying "God" is a form of "hate."
I douhgt the "shooters" had ever heard that from any preacher or from any Christian friends or neighbors.
IDOLATRY can take many forms.
Pastor Timothy Keller wrote: "the idols that drive us are complex, multi layered and largely hidden from us.
“I am the LORD your God,". . .
“You shall have no other gods before me."
A society that has not heard these words or heard yet not heeded is a society poorer in spirit.
We preachers, I am afraid, will be judged at the great white throne Rev.20:11-15. We all have been given the Word that is Salvation for our eternal soul.
God intended the Gospel for those with black hearts and evil in their minds. Along with us sinners saved by Grace.
Ok, get buckled in, hold on to your hats.
Many, ye most won't want to hear this.
Have you ever heard someone say "this will hurt me, more than you"?
The Church has to be accountable to society for the shape it's in !
I fully expect there will be some that will say, take me off the devotion list.
MORE SHOOTING !
aghast ! ! !
deepest feeling about these shooters is they are COWERDS !
I am a
combat veteran. These COWARDS are “wannabees”, they seldom have
any idea what our real veterans have done to protect the United
States of America and the Constitution of the Constitutional Republic
and our citizens.
reminded of an old song (I was around when it was first released) It
express's the heaviness of my heart and soul.
have all the flowers gone,
have all the flowers gone,
Pray for America
The Apostle Paul:
*He cited the call to pray for leaders from 1 Timothy 2:
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (v. 1–4)
When Paul urged making intersession “for rulers and those in authority” (v.
