Priest Reveals TRUE Reason for Mass Shootings

The archbishop of Philadephia, who was previously based in Denver when the Columbine shooting happened, has spoken against further gun control laws without addressing the core issue of America’s culture. The Washington Examiner reports:

The Roman Catholic archbishop of Philadelphia penned an op-ed earlier this week arguing that legislative measures will not solve the underlying problems that lead to mass violence.

Charles J. Chaput, who was the archbishop of Denver during the 1998 Columbine massacre, opened his article by reiterating what he said in testimony before the U.S. Senate in the wake of that shooting. “The real problem [of Columbine-like violence in our culture] is in here, in us,” he asserted, going on to explain how American culture has increasingly glorified violence and selfishness.

Pointing to the social effects of widespread abortion especially, Chaput said that “certain kinds of killing no longer even count officially as ‘killing.’ Certain kinds of killing we enshrine as rights and protect by law. When we live this kind of contradiction, why are we surprised at the results?”

Chaput concluded his testimony 20 years ago by warning that “civility and community” in the U.S. are eroding, and that violence would likely continue.

Violence has been normalized in America’s culture, and faith is wholly absent, leading to a collapse of our moral fiber. Only with a renewal in traditional values will America rise back to a healthy society.

Let me see if I can this through American and especially Christians little peanut brains,I will quote a scripture from Deuteronomy 11:28 for those who believe we no longer go by the old testament,You will receive a curse if you reject the commands of Yahweh your Elohim and turn from his way by worshiping foreign Gods,what ever is spoken to Israel is also spoken to those who claim to follow the Jewish Messiah,what ever is good and right for Israel is good and right for all others as well,if you Sin by rejecting your creators Commandment,their will be nothing else you can turn to but false(foreign) Gods,even if that false God is yourself,we are reaping the curse that we have sown,Yahweh is allowing us to experience what it is like without the rule law,and it could become very bad unless we repent and turn from our evil ways.

Archbishop Chaput is absolutely correct. So very many in our culture have turned away from God, and henceforth civility and compassion, and have embraced pure evil….. it is no wonder that God is allowing us to witness what such a culture will produce. BUT, there is still a remnant of Believers who are praying at this very moment for a reawakening to what is good and right….. if more and more will join in that prayer, God will hear. Think about it. —

Until we the United States of America get back to God the Father and Jesus Christ his Son and renounce Satan and his works this will continue and get worse. Jesus return is at the door read Luke 17:26-32, Genesis 6, and Genesis 19 and you will see we are at that time of the end. Many will run to the church to repent but for many it will be to late because they have sinned away their day of grace since they wanted the pleasures of sin like lust of the eye, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life.

James: You are spot on Correct.
America needs to return to its GOD and COUNTRY roots. Without God in our lives, without Prayer, this Once Great Country is Doomed!

We all need to ask ourselves the question as to why we allow the Left, Liberals and Democrats to dominate the issues of our time. We have the numbers and the economic power to ruin their businesses, their careers as actors and actresses, and athletes and tell them in no uncertain terms they are not going to disallow the Constitution or our traditional values by being violent and loud. All we really need to do is boycott their businesses, stop seeing their performances, stop watching and reading their media and let them know in no uncertain terms that WE are in control, not them. Think about it.

The police or any human law can not police the heart of all men. Only God, through the gift of His Holy Spirit that comes upon you from surrendering your life Christ can. The moment you forsake the only true God the Almighty, you have declared yourself as your own god. That is satanic. God too will forsake you to your reprobate mind that is only capable of doing mostly evil and less good. That is the reason for the mass shootings. These shooters have no Godly but reprobate minds that only thinks of doing everything day and night. No amount of gun control can cure or stop such minds from doing evil. Only the spirit of God can. If you take away their guns, you can’t take away their bombs or their other means of evil. You have to take away their demons by allowing Christ to be preached to them early in their youth so they understand that evil will alienate them from God and bring them eternal damnation. AMERICA MUST RETURN TO GOD BY ACCEPTING OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR IF WE MUST STOP THIS EVIL. Note, mass shootings is only one of the outcomes of godlessness and it is not even the worse. There are other evils that are being perpetrated by all godlessness men and women both rich and poor and sane and insane that are worse than mass killings. Many of these people crying for gun control are perpetrating some of the most horrible, but their are hidden but a lot more deadly, so they cry hypocritical cries. What evil is worse than daggering an innocent baby who can’t run or defend himself or herself in the womb. Yet millions of those crying for gun control will rather die than to see abortion banned. What about grown men using little girls as sex slaves. Is mass shootings not better for such children than living dead. You see, evil is evil, whether done with a gun, or a pen or a bomb or a knife or in the secret, it doesn’t matter. NO MATTER WHAT AMERICA DOES, GOD WILL REMAIN GOD AND HE WILL NOT CHANGE BUT AMERICA DECIDES TO GO BACK TO GOD AMERICA, WILL DEFINITELY CHANGE FOR GOOD.

Our “leaders”, except for a small few, are ego-driven, selfish and power hungry, caring NOTHING for the population to whom they appeal for votes and money. They hate GOODNESS. They openly declare that love and family are jaded, passe’ expressions for suckers. But we have had this kind of rhetoric in the past. Beginning with the sexual revolution of the ’60s, Americans “let it all hang out”, which resulted in Roe v. Wade. But we cannot FORCE people to return to morality, compassion and virtue. To value LIFE in all forms and stages. The only answer to this conflagration of sin and violence is PRAYER! Only in prayer can we quit worrying and nurturing counter violence to the violence. Only through prayer can we “get to” the murderous heart. It’s either that or going out and hunting down the violent. And THAT is precisely what Satan wants. His minions want The United States to fall and become a despotic, oligarchic socialist (indeed Communist) nation. Jesus promised us that the Gates of Hell would not prevail against “This Rock, His Church”. And I believe Him. So, PRAY! Pray for our leaders that they begin to STAND for virtue, morality and God who made us and keeps us in existence. And M.A.G.A! K.A.G! God Bless America!

What is needed is a sovereign move of The Holy Spirit as in the days of George Whitefield where people turned to God in huge numbers and were touched and changed by the Breath of God.
Praying for a Third Great Awakening!

This country is becoming a crookedly paved road with no line down the center, to keep people on the right side. The line is the rule of law and also the Commandments, most of which, even to the non-religious are still overall good rules by which to live. The atheists and secularists do not want these rules posted anywhere in public. There are many people who are not raised by parents, who abandon them early or where one parent works and the other is dead or abandoned their family, leaving no one to teach the kids proper values, or make sure they do not find themselves in big trouble. Either way, we need to return the rules which made this country more civil, doesn’t glorify mindless violence and teaches proper behavior between people of the 2-only sexes.

Amen. A Godless society is a lawless Society. Just bring back God into young children’s education, bring the Bible back to life and to Gods Glory. We never had all this violence when there was religious instructions at school, learn patriotism, national pride and love and loyalty to Gods 10 Commandments Amen <3
