(There is a special message at the end of this article for those who might happen to read this and do not have Jesus in their life and are looking for peace and a way to better understand the present-day insanity and confusion.)
This commentary will seem to contain a certain level of sarcasm.
That is completely intentional.
Let’s look, rationally and sensibly, at the properties, characteristics and similarities of the following items. Perhaps we may be able to put things in their proper perspective.
Warning #1: Intellect and reason will be required for this evaluation.
Warning #2: Pre-determined agendas contrary to reality must first be set aside.
Step One: Defining each item in terms of shared VERITAS (Latin for “TRUTH”).
A Gun: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
A Knife: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
A Baseball Bat: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
A Hammer: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
A Car: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
A Truck: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
A Bus: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
An Airplane: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
A Helicopter: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
A Bomb: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
A Shovel (includes all types): An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
An Axe/hatchet/pickaxe: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting without human intervention.
The Jawbone of an ass/donkey: An inanimate object that is incapable of acting (as a weapon) without human intervention.
So now we have determined the primary characteristic that each of the above items have in common. However, I am certain that the creative genius of man could add many more inanimate items to this list.
- All the items on this list also share other indisputable characteristics: If left unattended, they will remain inanimate until the end of time.
- All the items on this list have been used by humans to kill humans in the past.
Of all the items in the above list, the “gun” seems to garner the most vitriol in terms of rabid and brainless accusations and blame in spite of the physical impossibility of any single one of them being capable of any action independent of human direction.
Why do you suppose that is?
Step 2: Using intellect, logic and reason to separate Truth from Falsehood.
Could it be that the purveyors of this mantra of blaming an inanimate object have a devious purpose in their ceaseless blathering and blaming every time an evil person commits an evil act with one of them?
I must confess, it did occur to me that it is possible that the liberals/globalists want to disarm law-abiding Americans as they have seen how well that works in all the other countries where disarmament has been achieved, and communism has been the natural progression by governments. Victims and slaves do not have firearms – or freedoms.
It puts me in mind of a quote by Thomas Jefferson: “Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who don’t.”
Below is an example of this blathering that I mentioned above. It reveals the orator’s true agenda in its glaring deception and purposeful obfuscation of reality.
It should be noted here that the term “assault weapon,” when applied indiscriminately, is a blatant attempt to confuse and mislead, so when you hear this term (and you truly seek truth), you should follow the Latin directive: Caveat Lector (reader beware).
“Today, in the wake of yet another tragedy, I urge Republican lawmakers in Congress to fulfill their duty to protect the American people. Work with us to pass a bill banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, to enact universal background checks, to require safe storage of guns, and end immunity from liability for gun manufacturers.” (Joe Biden following the shootings In Maine, Oct 2023)
This is clearly a mental health issue that should have been stopped by Card’s doctors and family, but Biden blames an inanimate object in his statement on the shooting.
And now for something completely different!
Speaker Mike Johnson on Gun Control: “The Problem is the Human Heart, Not Guns… We Have to Address the Root Problems… Mental Health.”
Wow! Someone who has probably read his Bible in which can be found this verse:
“’Come now, and let us reason together,’ Says the LORD” (Isaiah 1:18).
Now to the crux of this commentary
Some might say that I have wandered into politics here. Well, like it or not, politics is being increasingly employed in the process of attempting to blur the clear lines between reality and the mass deception that the Word of God has warned is coming and, I believe, is already here. However, it is going to get oh-so-much worse when God Himself executes deception as a specific judgment on this willfully unbelieving world.
“The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they believe the lie, in order that judgment may come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) Emphasis added by me.
If you have read this far, I hope you will read just a little further.
My friend, you do not have to go down with this perishing world. You can have the promise of God to receive eternal life in place of eternal death.
It is the One and Only Way that the sovereign God has determined for all those who will to be saved from the consequences of their sin and rebellion against Him.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
The special message I promised you:
For anyone who may read this article and has not trusted in Jesus Christ and therefore has no hope or peace in your life.
You can have hope. You can have the peace that Jesus has promised to all who have made Him their Lord and Savior. The peace that passes understanding.
It requires that you come before God on His terms.
And, what are His terms according to His Word?
- Genuine repentance (turning to God instead of continuing to reject or ignore Him).
- Confession of sins (that you are a sinner and acknowledge that to God).
- That you understand that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
- To acknowledge to God that you are unable to pay that debt
- Belief that Jesus Christ paid your death sentence for you on the cross.
- To believe that Jesus is the Way, the only Way, that God has established by which humans may be saved from the consequences of their sin and rebellion.
God has made it absolutely clear that there is no one who comes before Him, under His terms, that will be refused.
- No one: no race, no color, no country of origin, regardless of any previous belief system: no one.
- No matter what your past sins have been, God can and WILL forgive you because He says He will.
- Salvation is available to everyone without any exceptions.
If you put all your trust for salvation in Jesus, and Him only, you can follow that prayer up by simply saying, “Thank you, Father God, for hearing my prayer and saving me,” because we can trust Him to keep His Word. He always has. He always will.
“Truly, Truly, I say to you that he who hears My words and believes the One who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned. He has crossed from death to life” (John 5:24).
There are no answers and there is no hope in the world by governments, organizations, politics or politicians. There are only lies and deception. But you can have the Truth and the peace you seek.
The answers are in the Word of God. The Bible. If you ask God, with all your heart, He will hear you.
“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
