Gun Control vs. Sin Control
by Dwayne Harris
1/16/2013 / Christian Living
Once again, the government tries to address selected devices, while completely avoiding the source of evil; man's heart. They have feverishly labored to remove God's moral guidelines from every institution, to suit their evil desires, and yet strain on the outcome it has produced. They are horrified by the evil in society and fail to recognize it as their own reflection. Every year, there are over 12,000 annual deaths related to D.U.I., and yet no act in congress to restrict the amount of alcohol you can consume or possess. Instead, a state legislator in Minnesota, Phyllis Kahn, just proposed a bill which would allow 18 year olds to consume alcoholic beverages inside bars, as long as a guardian is present. There are over 39,000 deaths every year from narcotic drug overdoses. No surprise when you consider over 200 million narcotic pain prescriptions are given out every year in a country that only has a population of 300 million. Here's a startling fact; 18.3% of women over 18 "reported" being sexual assaulted. Meanwhile, America is the top producer of pornography throughout the entire world. But don't think those in congress are blind to such activity. D.C. police records indicate their steepest rise in violent crime actually occurred in the 1st District, which is home to Capitol Hill. It was an increase of 69%. The truth is, you can remove the Bible from the foundation of a country, but you can never remove the consequences of such actions.
"But each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death." James 1: 14-15
