Our Daily Bread…Featuring Paul Beverly

I try not to respond to tragedy with a knee jerk reaction to what’s in my head at that moment. I want time to think, to pray, to seek answers & usually seek those in the Bible. First & foremost, I’m as saddened as anyone by the horrific killings of children in Florida & anywhere else we have had them.

We DO NOT have a gun issue, we have a HEART issue. A MORAL issue. A lack of GOD issue.

In the book of Genesis, Cain killed his brother Abel. God didn’t ban stones or knives. He said, “Thou shall not murder.”

In the book of Luke, Jesus told his disciples during their last meeting to take their purses & swords with them & if they didn’t have a sword to sell their clothes to buy one. He knew they’d need to protect themselves from those who were evil.

Some of you will say that was then, this is now. Some will say a knife is different than an AR-15. Maybe so, but the Bible is still the book of life for me. Our forefathers knew we would need guns to protect ourselves from evil. That’s why they wrote the 2nd amendment. Automatic weapons have been illegal for almost 100 years. Drugs have been illegal forever. An evil person will not obey the law.Do we need some kind of reform? Maybe so. Maybe it needs to be harder to purchase an AR type weapon, but those that purchase them legally are not usually they ones we have to worry about. Yes, the kid in Florida purchased his weapon legally. A permit is not required in Florida.

Do we need more mental health evaluations for those purchasing these types of weapons? Maybe so. There were signs of this shooter & others that they were capable of something horrific. The FBI knew, but dropped the ball.

We need to stop pointing fingers, stop politicizing these incidents, stop listening to the media, stop taking God out of America, & start teaching morals again. Teach the value of human lives. Teach love.

I’m a big supporter of the NRA, but we need to keep big business out of politics. Stop allowing big business to line the pockets of politicians, just to push their agendas.

I want our country back to what it was when I was a little kid. Back to being like Mayberry & Andy Griffith. Back to what it was before we took God out of schools & everywhere else. We didn’t have mass shootings & killings like this back before God was taken out of everything. Stop feeling entitled & teach love!!
