I know that it may seem appropriate for our church to address the Newtown shooting, and post about it on social media.
Speaking for myself, sometimes I know better what I don’t want to do or say, than what I want to do or say.
I don’t want to:
- Know what celebrities are saying about it
- Post a Bible verse and then move on with my life
- Use it as an opportunity for an activist rant
- Blame it on video games or mental illness
What I do know is that evil is real. It is irrational, unexplainable, and all around us. There is Light, and there is Darkness.
For a well thought out Christian perspective on this, I usually turn to The Gospel Coalition, Desiring God, or The Resurgence, all excellent blogs that already have posts regarding this horrific crime.
That’s all for now. You may see a long form post in the near future, or links to some of the best writing on this.
