One week ago the tragic shooting in Connecticut took place. It was a tragic act carried out by a troubled man. The shooting left many asking "why?" and "what can we do to prevent this from happening in the future?" The answer to why is not always ours to know. God does things in his own timing for his own purpose and we may not always understand why. It is interesting that the tragedy took place in a state with some of the strictest gun laws in the country.
We as a nation need to understand that we have attempted to remove God from our culture, will not allow him to be taught in schools and then wonder why tragedy happens at the hands of a man that felt he had nothing to live for. To answer the question of how we can prevent a tragedy such as this from happening in the future. We can reinstate the sense of accountability to God that America once had. As time has passed American's only want to be accountable to men, but the founders felt that sense of accountability to God and over time that sense has faded. We are even so bold to say that men control the weather (Global Warming). We are accountable to our Creator and once that is reinstated into the foundation of our country we can make true progress. We are warned in the Bible that if we take God out of the mix we will parish and we have certainly done so.
