Yes, you heard me.
It’s time everyone stops saying that America has a gun violence problem. Our situation is nowhere near as superficial as that.
We have a violence problem, period, irrespective of what instrument is used in the commission of a crime. That, in turn, is just one part of the overall ethical crisis being experienced in the country; a climax of having our morals siphoned off, slowly but surely, through the rejection and removal of God and value for human life from society.
This comes as no surprise for anyone familiar with how Scripture characterizes our times: “But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power” (2 Tim. 3:1-5).
The Bible, as usual, correctly diagnoses the problem and focuses on the efficient cause of violence and evil vs. any instrumental cause.
