Jim began by reading the proclamation by President Trump from August 4th concerning the tragic shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
Some people blame the political climate today. That position is certainly understandable when you have an MSNBC analyst who made the outrageous suggestion that through his proclamation, President Trump was making a reference to the ‘Heil Hitler’ Nazi salute.
Jim also presented comments from Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute, Todd Starnes, Jerry Newcombe, Mike Huckabee, and Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick. These individuals commented on the following:
–Dysfunctional family environments and their not-so-surprising historic impact upon our nation as it relates to mass shootings.
–Criticism and defense of the idea of thoughts and prayers.
–Christian influence in our history vs. the lack of that influence today. In the end, we lack a fear of God in our land and we are reaping the consequences.
–The reason for our nation’s mass shootings is ultimately spiritual. We have created a culture where life is expendable and lives are disposable.
–The nation has kicked God out of the town square and isolated Him to the church.
