Guns are not the problem, the heart and minds of people are the problem. The answer to these tragedies is not to take away the guns from the millions of law abiding citizens. In China there was a knife attack that left 29 dead and 130 wounded. I don’t think the knife was the problem, it was the heart of the ones who attacked that crowd. Cain used a rock to kill Abel. The LORD told Cain, “sin lies at the door…but you must rule over it.” The only real solution is for man to ask Jesus Christ to come and rule and reign in his heart.
As Christians we should mourn the lost of these individuals and pray for their grieving family and friends. Every one of these people were a precious individual created in the image of God. As Christians, we should show love and compassion during this terrible tragedy. Jesus said, “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. But I have come that you might have life and have it
more abundantly.” How much different this world would be if people were willing to accept God’s love and plan for their life that comes through knowing and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
This is a group of Pastors/Churches who have agreed to meet, pray and plan together to reach this community with events, community wide services and sharing the good news that God has a plan and a purpose for every life. We have around a dozen different pastors who have been meeting on a weekly basis, praying and planning together. We have been involved with Charlotte Expo, Community Good Friday and Thanksgiving Services, National Day of Prayer and Celebrate Charlotte Fireworks/Concert coming up June 19. Ask your pastor if he is involved in this group and if not, why not? We would truly enjoy seeing more pastors/churches take an active role in working together in reaching this community.
