f my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Here are several contributing factors to this horrid evil in our land:
* Continually watching violence for pleasure. We need to begin to put 2 and 2 together and figure out that watching people kill people for our entertainment in movies, TV shows, and video games, fills our psyche and the psyche of hundreds of millions of people with a violent brainwashing and a terrible disregard for and insensitivity toward human life.
* Removing the commandment “Thou shall not kill,” from public life.
* Rejection of the spiritual dimension of human beings. If there is no God, then people are nothing but animated matter and of no more value than a insect.
* Authorizing and approving of the continued killing of millions and millions of the most innocent humans on the planet, prenatal children. (If an innocent human life is worthless in the womb, why are we flawed and guilty human beings of any value after we are born?)
* Glorifying militarism and patriotic violence.
