Gun Violence – What Works?

Every time people write laws banning something (murder, drugs, theft etc.) it ends the unwanted behavior, correct? The obvious answer is NO. Trying to ban evil behavior by passing laws has never and will never work. This strategy only erodes the freedoms of the law abiding people and empowers the criminals.


Furthermore, this misplaced faith in humanistic answers only serves to distract from the real solution to evil in society. The continued erosion of liberty is the devil’s strategy. The devil is leading the agenda by causing death and fear. Carnal and fearful people are being led by each of the devil’s moves. Historically, the erosion of freedoms has also included the eventual restrictions of the Church. No one is safe who is not free.


Laws are passed to bring justice. A price must be paid for crimes committed if we are going to be a just society. However, the principles that this Country was founded upon depended upon a population that could govern themselves in congruence to the standards of a Holy God. Historically in this Country, the role of government was to safe guard people’s freedoms so that a self-governing people could be free to serve and worship God. This is what’s unique about America.


We must do two things. First, we must resist the loss of freedoms due to the actions of a few demonized people. Second, God’s people must awaken to our mission to be salt and light. We must turn from humanism and redirect our trust toward God for help. He can and will turn the rising evil away. He can and will restore our Country to a Godly Republic. We only need to believe.

Matthew 17:20 NKJV

So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Matthew 18:18-20 NKJV

(18) “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

(19) “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.

(20) For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

2 Corinthians 3:17 NKJV

Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Ezekiel 36:26-27 NKJV

(26) I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

(27) I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.
