Letter: Christians must come off sidelines for change

To the editor:

Blaming guns for the killing of innocent lives in Connecticut a few weeks ago, America doesn’t get it. My opinion is that you could get rid of every gun in the United States of America, and still evil people would find a different way to bring harm to innocent people, or even kill them.

The problem lies within the heart of man. The Bible says in Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” Christians should not be surprised when horrible things happen.

America has set into place an agenda based on immorality, self-centeredness, greed and idolatry. We spend lots of money every year filing lawsuits to have the Ten Commandments removed from courthouse lawns. Christians who hand out Gospel tracts in shopping malls are kicked out or arrested. Schools are forced to teach evolution rather than creationism.
