CHARLOTTE, Dec. 17, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — Watching the Memorial service for the twenty-six precious lives taken from us in Newtown, Connecticut was painful.  But it was far more painful to God.  The city of Newtown took down all of its Christmas decorations so it could properly mourn.  How foolish, yet typical of governmental strategy to replace God.  The “Interfaith” service on Sunday evening was an affront to true Christianity.  Those claiming to be His priests (they were no more Christian than they were poached eggs) barely mentioned Jesus’ Name.  How could they – they don’t know Him. Yet these were Newtown’s pastors.

“My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.” Hosea 4:6.

Can there be any doubt in anyone’s mind today that America is in deep trouble?  God said it would be this way.  We are losing our kids.  Blood is coursing down the corridors of our schools, workplaces, and streets and we look at each other with awkward amazement wondering what has happened to us.  We are being drained of our wealth.  We are losing our kids to gangs, drugs, violence, suicide, murder and every imaginable trivial pursuit. Our schools have become veritable jungles where survival of the fittest is the law of the hallway.

What happened?  We have violently removed the fear of Almighty God from the hearts of our children.  We expelled God from school and banished Him from the schoolyard.  He has been replaced with metal detectors, condoms, policemen, anti-bullying policies, No-gun zones, and violence.  “Political strategy” has replaced God’s Truth.  We are losing our kids because we are ignoring God’s Law.  Our government cannot fix us!

What would Jesus say if He had spoken at this interfaith abomination in Newtown, Connecticut?  What did He say when He was confronted with mass murder and natural disaster in His day (Luke 13:1-9)?   He answered the questions, “Why did this happen?” and “Where was God in all of this?” with a simple phrase, “…I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will perish…” Luke 13:3.  His was neither a message of false comfort nor a call to new “political strategy,” but a call to repentance.  We are being destroyed, we are losing our freedom, and our children because we have forsaken God – Jesus!  He will return if we will repent and call on His Name!
