As we think about those precious lives lost at Sandy Hook we must realize that this isn't the worst school massacre in U.S. history. The people of Bath, Michigan suffered 85 years ago in a tiny village that became the site of America's deadliest school massacre.
45 people — including 38 children — were killed May 18, 1927, when the school district's treasurer, Andrew Kehoe, detonated a series of bombs at his home and the school. 58 others were injured.
Kehoe killed his wife and blew up their home before driving to the school that morning. Not to mention the other acts of violence that has occurred in our beloved America since its creation.
My point in all of this is simply this, no matter how many inanimate objects we try to ban or remove from our society, motivated men on a mission will ALWAYS find a way to kill his fellow man. It doesn't matter how many laws we pass or how many assault weapon restrictions we enforce, IT WILL NOT STOP ANYTHING. Men have been doing violence toward each other since Cain killed Able.
So you see, even 85 years ago the U. S. was not safe from motivated men with premeditated motives who had it in their hearts and minds to murder others for whatever reason. Today we replace evil with mental health issues. The enemy has been leading men to violence for centuries.
What will cure this disease?? The cure is simply this:
Listening and being obedient to to what Yeshua-"Jesus"said is the greatest commandant of all-
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Our Savior gave us these simple yet so powerful words that cover all and everything we as humans need to live in peace with one another.
