Dear Liberty,

     A horrific tragedy occurred in Oregon on October 1st.  A very seriously demented 26-year-old entered Umpqua Community College and forced students to lie on the ground.  One by one he told his victims to stand and answer the question, “What religion are you?”  Those responding with Christianity were rewarded with a bullet in the head.

     Obama’s immediate response was to politicize the tragedy.  He demanded real gun control in America, suggesting we follow Australia’s lead.  Unfortunately, Australia’s gun control was actually gun confiscation.  Obama claimed it eliminated gun violence.  Hours after this statement, a gunman opened fire on a police department in Australia killing two.  Obama maintained areas with rigorous gun laws are the safest in the country. 

     Oregon is already a gun control utopia and yet this mass killing happened despite such laws.  In fact, several of the cities with the strictest gun laws are the most violent, such as St. Louis, Baltimore and Washington D.C.   His 12-minute propaganda was full of inaccuracies and outright lies designed to manipulate the American people regarding gun facts, never acknowledging the real root of the problem.  If this issue was truly about gun control then every day there should be massive protests in cities like Chicago where upwards of 50 people are shot in a weekend.

     As I wrote in my letter "A Change of Heart", Progressives believe they can force a person’s morality through legislation.  Any change seen in an individual by such laws is false, insincere, and therefore not binding to the person.  Gun control is just such a deceptive issue.  (see Gun Control: The First Steps Of Tyranny)  It has no real effect unless citizens address the genuine internal cause. 

     Since the founding of this country there has always be a respect and acknowledgement of God.  (see The United Church And States Of America)  Over the past several years there has been an obvious shift to reject God.  If you reject God, you reject his laws, which are foundational to our nation.  There is no reason to respect yourself or others.  Life has been devalued with many playing gods themselves in deciding who gets to keep theirs.  

     As an example of how far off course our country has veered, hundreds just gathered in Detroit in July to praise the unveiling of a new Satanic monument.  This week, Oklahoma secretly removed a Ten Commandments monument in the dead of night.  We have been erasing God from our culture for 50 years at an exponentially increasing rate.  Is it any wonder that as the Liberal Progressives push harder and harder to villainize Christianity, while embracing everything that is ungodly, that these acts of violence are increasing? 

     They want to blame the NRA and guns, yet guns have been around since the beginning of the country.  Kids use to take their guns to school and were involved in gun clubs yet we did not have incidents like this.  Gun murders are actually down except in gun free zones and gun controlled cities.  What has changed?  (see It's Not What's In Your Hand, It's What's In Your Heart)

     We are removing God and becoming a secular humanist society that embraces openly worshiping Satan, excuses radical Islamists, but eagerly condemning Christians and Jews.  Progressives started going after Christians because they didn't participate in a same-sex wedding.  (see We Reserve The Right)  In the Charleston shooting, the gunman attacked the oldest African-American church in the country.  (see Their Deaths Were Not In Vain)  The Oregon shooter confessed he hated organized religion, wanted to serve Satan, and murdered the Christians while only wounding others.  In the Middle East, ISIS is massacring Christians by the hundreds and thousands.  (see Holocaust: Then And Now)  Our Administration is responding with one, big yawn.  

     Evil loves death.  It's not the gun that kills people.  It is a black heart that seeks to end life no matter what the means.  Abortion doctors do it with a vacuum.  Rapists do it with knives and ropes.  Spouses do it with poison, knives, pillows, and any other device at their disposal.  Many even do it to themselves with a rope, car, or drugs.  ISIS carries out their evil deeds by slitting the throats of their victims, bombs, burning them, or drowning them.  Death is not picky about evil’s choice of weapon.

     Those demanding gun control have decided that an inanimate object is responsible for deaths while ignoring and actually contributing to the true problem, the removal of God from our lives.  Liberty, Christ told us "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first,” John 15:18.  This moment in time epitomizes Christ’s meaning, especially in America.  

     There is a solution though - A sure fire, concrete solution.  It was given to us directly from God in 2 Chronicles 7:14.  “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”  

     I pray with all my heart America and the world wake up and heed this promise before God completely turns his back on us and lets us live in the “utopian” world we have carved out for ourselves.

     Regardless of what the rest of the country or the rest of the world does, I will stand with those students in Oregon and proudly declare, “I am a Christian!”

     That’s my 2 cents.
