Innocent Blood...

Today more children were killed by insanity.

The insanity of a lost society.


A society that has sought to erase its boundaries...

To become a global community.


The Amish lead a simple life...

Yet it is satisfying to them all the same.


We have lost our vision in our quest to satisfy the desires of ourselves and of others...

A quest to satisfy the craving of flesh and men.


No longer does our society look to the one who can heal us of our afflictions...

No longer does mankind look to his Source.


Man looks to himself...

And how he can satisfy his fleshly passions.


No longer do we look to fill our hearts and minds with what is pure and good.

Prayer has become a distant stranger...


God has been banned from our public streets.


Our souls are wandering and lost...

They are condemned to lustful desires and appetites.


We convince ourselves that it's something we need.


While we fill our hands with gold and earthly treasures...

Our sick hearts leaks its lifeblood onto the earth.




16 There are six things the LORD hates,
seven that are detestable to him:

17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,

18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,

19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.


Proverbs 6:16-19 (NIV)

TJ: News of these murders has just filtered through over here... it is beyond understanding how anyone could do such an act...what on earth in his childhood could have affected him so much that 20 years later he carries out these murders? There is no justification, no matter what. And what of his family, those he has left behind to carry the burden of what he has done.

It's a sad day today and at times a bad world that we live in.

I have been sad since the Colorado shooting. . . I have been praying for the safety of our school children.

Hey Sue...

20 years is a long time to allow something to decay and rot inside of you. Allowing oneself to submit and act on such feelings is, in my opinion, criminal. And certainly, there are more people hurting from this than just the the families of the children.


Hey Sicilian...

It is an ongoing sadness. A feeling that our communities have lost something valuable in our lives.


Hey Dr. A...

Thanks.

I first experience of the Amish was not pleasant. I was 10 years old and they appeared rude... BUT... i was 10 years old showing flesh (shorts and bikini top)... in my advanced years, that puts it into perspective... for all my first experience I have a deep regard for their 'way of life'. Dare I say envy. Saddened as I am that they have been 'infiltrated' by our 'scummy' world, assured am I that their belief in the almighty, their strength of family and community, and their determined spirit of everything we hold deeply sacred, deeply sacred (even though silent in this boisterous world of modernity), they WILL overcome in a way that we should, must, NEED, to emulate.

God bless them all, God forgive the rest of us.

Hey T...

I'm sure that you felt very uncomfortable at that time.

I used Mennonite (an Amish sect) curriculum when I first started homeschooling.

You can see where their heart is from the schoolbooks that they use for their children.

I agree...

God forgive us for not standing up for what is right and being brave enough to face the ridicule.

God forgive us for bowing down to the pressures of political correctness.

The Amish are a strong people with a strong faith.

And they have not succumbed to the fleshly pressures of this world.
