When Evil Came To Town

Evil Came to Sandy Hook Elementary

Remember The Children

By R.S.Helms

Two weeks before Christmas the scene would be excited children with presents under the tree, parents worried if they had provided their families with an adequate and festive Christmas.  The tone set at school would be one of festive holidays and fun times ahead.  There was more likely an atmosphere of well being in the small “bedroom community” of Newtown Connecticut as parents left for work and the children were just getting settled in for their day of school.

That sounds like so many communities across this great nation, but it was not going to be that way for this community expecting the jolly old elf to make an appearance in just a couple of weeks; little did they know or expect that instead of Santa, it would be pure evil about to interrupt their tranquility and holiday excitement.

It is not really known what transpired at the home of Ms. Nancy Lanza, except this is where the carnage begun, as this evil controlled young man of 20 years and identified as Adam Lanza shot his mother Nancy in the face, then left the residence, took his mother’s car and her guns, drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School, and two days later no one really knows why he chose this “gun-free” facility, but he did.

Once at the school, Lanza forced entry into the building, as the police investigators piece together a more definite time line, it is believed that he entered the office, where he was confronted by the principal who tried to stop Lanza and was shot dead for her effort.

From that point it is believed many teachers were alerted to something being amiss, by means of the public address system; broadcasting the gunshots and screams, as a custodian ran through the halls attempting to warn the teachers to hide their children.  Some teachers hid the children in closets, in the bathroom, in coveys, and telling them to keep very quiet, while the children were crying because of an unfamiliar feeling of fright.  Some of the children just wanted to go home, others wanted to just hug their moms; all, (including the teachers), were frightened.  This was supposed to be a safe bubble for children and the ones who are charged with teaching them.

Meanwhile continued gunshots echoed through the hallways of Sandy Hook Elementary as the evil insanity moved through the building.  A frantic 911 caller was near hysteria as she was reporting the gunfire, “shots being fired in the school!” and help was on its way.  As the story continues to develop, we hear the communications of the first responders to arrive on the scene and move into the building without hesitation, their order is to go after the shooter, follow the broken glass, the blood, the spent cartridges, and go in the direction of the gunfire.

They communicate the scene as they move through the building, and it must have been one of the worst ever witnessed by the law enforcement officers going past the bloodied bodies of the children and adult victims.

In a closet a teacher has barricaded her students huddled down and quiet, while in fierce terror they listened to the gunfire, waiting on someone to come and rescue them.  Then it came as they heard the shuffling feet and voices of the police.  Then the knocking on the closet door as the officers attempted to have them respond, yet they kept still until one officer slid his badge under the door.

For some of the children, huddled together in their classrooms the sound of rescue never came, instead, they heard the sound of a crashing door and the sharp deafening report of a long gun or assault rifle.  A children of innocence, who will not have the opportunity live out their life, and grow old surrounded by family, perhaps children of their own was something that should have happened but never will for the 20 who would not be going home.  The innocence of childhood snatched away by the spawn of Satan, on his evil rampage.

For some of the children being evacuated from what was supposed to be their daily safe harbor in a world of madness, strife, and evil; they was instructed to put their hands on the shoulders of the person in front of them, and “close your eyes” as not to have innocence shattered by the evil carnage they had to pass through.

20 Children and 6 Adults

20 innocent children aged 6 and 7 years old, 6 adults, teachers mostly along with some of the staff, made up the final victim count.  Then the mother of the 20 year old young man, and the young man himself dead, the mother a victim, the son a victim, of sorts, but a victim of totally depraved evil.

For two days this reporter has heard more on gun control and it’s political agenda, and very little on the cause of effect.  From time to time a voice over the radio or TV will wonder what happened, or what can we do to prevent it from happening again?  The President said that a lot of things must be looked at, but offered little more.

For our communities, we must keep in mind the little children, their adult fallen who were taken from their families, and pray for the families who must be going through the nightmare and grief.

Image
Each Person Has Their Personal Grief

We know not what they are going through, not even some of us who have lost a child or even a loved one, we may understand but each person, each parent has their own emotion, unique and unlike our own.  We as individuals and communities must pray for their lament, comfort, and healing, (what can be had).

The rest of the story and opinion will have to wait for another post, because we are at the suffering point in the story and any further comment would be inappropriate and reflect a callousness that our culture has come to think of as normal and common.

Our prayers do go out for the families.   God’s mercy be with you.

Saving the Church in America

The Church Needs committed believers in Christ and our Nation

Saving the Church in America.

There exists today a definite social persecution of Christianity, the church, and Jesus Christ.  Trying to remove Jesus (Christianity), from the public square and all symbols of this nation’s heritage of Christianity and being a Christian Nation is starting to work.  First with the folks attending and being involved in regular church, they are falling away and I put a lot of blame at the pastors door, because of losing the tax exempt status, and losing members that may be offended by what would be a conservative point of view, today’s preachers and pastors dance around political issues, or simply will not be involved from the pulpit.

It is sort of what happened to the sermons addressing sin, they slowly left the dialogue other than to say that Jesus forgives sin, and Jesus came into the world to redeem us from sin.  It is but a handful of churches that address sin, and especially the sin of our social environment.  I was not a great fan of Jerry Falwell with his Moral Majority movement, but one thing he did, he put sin out there and did not try to butter it up, or water it down.  He did not care if it was a Republican or Democrat he went head to head with politicians, educators, clergy, denominations, foreign governments for their sin, or ideologies that were sinful and against the teaching of the Bible.

We need a prominent preacher to step up and tell it like it is.  The church will be diminishing as the assaults from the liberal community, liberal theologies, and politicians who claim to be Christian, yet from the other side of their mouths belittle and assault Christianity.  Some denominations have stood for biblical Christianity only to get weak-kneed and ‘boo-hoo’ someone called them a bad name!  For fifty or more years people have been calling Christians bad names.  It has been ever creeping along; Satan himself tries every trick in the book and would be for inventing a few more if need be.  I believe this administration has done more harm to the Christian church, than any number combined from the past.

Christians have been fighting nonbelievers for … well since we were first called Christian at Antioch.  The Apostle Paul wrote that we need to “stand fast (firm, unmovable), in the faith”  that means the Christian faith, and without compromise.  Problem is, the carnal Christian don’t have the commitment to Christ as they do to the world, (secular) or the social political influence of the liberal ideologies, and the Christian of today is not prepared or equipped to withstand the wiles of Satan and his vast army.

Read Revelations chapters 2&3 notice the seven churches of Asia minor, people look at them literally, some not metaphorically; some think that they are all about the universal church of Jesus Christ, and the conditions that it goes through.  Some think of them as a warning from God for the church at large,  I cannot disagree, nevertheless, I see these seven churches pertaining not only to the church at large, but the local church, and the individual Christian, now I can fit the United States in there.  I believe that the United States is a country provided by God, I firmly believe that the United States is a Christian nation!  Our morals, principals, and values at one time were godly,  and it all came from the Christians who just happened to be getting this thing started, devout men, who (not all being Christian) put into place the things that made us a great nation.  Christian principals, values, morals, and integrity.  Some are still with us, perhaps a little worn, frazzled, and hard to recognize; but in the hearts of all free men, they can be found.

It is a shame when being politically correct trumps the values and integrity of the nations people, and before she lost the office of Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi was setting the “politically correctness” and at the time it was over “prisoner of war”.  It makes me ill to think that some one with the moral values and zero integrity, tells a nation what to say, how to act, and what is right and wrong!

In answer to the question which was put forward, “how do we save the church in America”?  we stand firm, we return to our first love, (Rev. 2: Ephesus, the church that lost its first love.) that it is time to stop hiding silently in our comfortable sanctuaries, safe from the criticism of fools and the demonizing by a radical left wing liberal who’s goal is a nation that is a socialist dictatorship, with no God but him!  We need to get pro-actively on the offensive and do the right thing.

The right thing is to, yes, return to the core values this nation had when our president didn’t denounce the United States of America as a Christian nation, and return to the Christian nation with the Christian values and integrity that made us great!  Then we would not have a Supreme Court, hearing the matter of “same sex marriage” being constitutional, of course it is not in the constitution!

We now have a nation that believes lying is a justifiable means to get what you want; a nation that believes we all should be dependent on the government for our existence, including all individual responsibility; a government that teaches against free enterprise, and capitalism; a government that takes from those who earned their fortune, (it does not matter in what generation it was earned and worked for to achieve it was still someone working hard and smart to provide wealth for his/her family), but the wealth of others and give it to the ones who don’t work, or even believe in it!  (now that is not being politically correct J)….

What’s it going to take?  It is going to take some committed Christians that don’t mind taking some harsh criticism from the radical left liberals,  (even the ones that claim to be Christian – i.e. Rev. Wright, and a host of liberal theologians, or “liberation theologians”; Muslims, and Atheists.  Individual Christians and denominations true and committed believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, (not the nut cake radicals), to stand up and stand firm in the faith, and speak out!   This is a Christian nation built on Christian principals, by Christian for fathers who came here to be able to freely believe and worship as they saw fit, AND THAT THE GOVERNMENT COULD NOT ESTABLISH, (look up the definition in an English dictionary!) and that the people were free to worship as they wanted … Publicly!  This applies to ALL RELIGIONS not just a favorite

The church needs to get back to the intent of the and actual meaning of “church and state”  it was not intended, nor did it say that we remove God from the public square.

I fear, that until we can come together as Christians and some brave soul for Jesus, stands up and puts together another “moral majority” and have the Christians (real Christians) back them up! I was never a big fan of Jerry Falwell, nonetheless, I was a big fan for what he was doing!  The Christian community will continue to be divided by the President, and the liberal left.  We, the Christian community, will continue to lose whole denominations as we have during the first half of the Obama administration!  Conservative and moderate Christianity is the last standing and we need God to help us circle the wagons, dig in and fight back!  Don’t let the wimpy and watered down, politically correct gospel be the Christian voice for the Lord’s church!

… … More to come, this gets my goat, and I tend to start chasing rabbits. (not one but bunches),.

I don’t think it is any government’s place to tell the Muslims what to believe, except the Afghan government.

THE WAKING GIANT

TWG:  More from the muslims, following the commands given to them in their  quran.  These aren’t ‘radical extremists”. They are doing EXACTLY what their quran dictates.  Where’s the UN “Women’s Rights” council, “Human Rights” council and the rest of the muslim terrorists squatting on the UN thrones pretending to care?  What are they doing with the BILLION$ the United States hands them every year?  With such vermin as Ahmadinejad on their “Council”, it’s no wonder they do NOTHING about muslim torture and slaughter of Women and little girls.   These are the evil cretins that the obama regime and their glassy eyed minions here are supporting. While they scream and whine about Conservatives not wanting to play a part in their “choice” to slaughter their own children, they sit back and say NOTHING about little girls being murdered by muslims for the crime of being raped, learning how to read, or…
