“You have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” Matthew 5:38-39
I am all for loving your brother and forgiveness. I do not hold grudges and have malice towards none, even if they really piss me off and I do think they are terrible people. I know that sooner or later it all comes out in the wash, or it doesn’t, I really don’t care. Just don’t mess with me. I know that I am no better than my enemies when I only love those that are good to me but I don’t like people that hurt me. I realize that you cannot love evil people dearly but you can have compassion and forgiveness if they ask for it. You do not have to get even.
If nobody ever forgave, everyone would try to get even and this is why the world keeps fighting even though they know better. The ones that don’t want to follow the commandments of God simply begin their own religions and expect that they will be taken seriously. You can believe anything you want, but for me and my house we will serve the Lord. We will believe the truth when it is self evident. I know Jesus is the son of God for how he lived and what he could do beyond the resurrection. If everyone refuses to say they are sorry or forgive an injustice and demands payment for a sin, it will continue to man’s final blood bath because it can only escalate in hatred and anger.
In this teaching, Dr Martin Luther King Jr said, “The old law of an eye for an eye leaves everybody blind. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding. It seeks to annihilate rather than to convert.” This is the problem with the world leaders including America. To pretend to be Christian and then go out to slaughter your enemies in retaliation to their evil, is complete hypocrisy and very sad to me because if you really do have a relationship with Jesus, you could not do this. Jesus told his disciples that if they loved him, they will keep his commandments. They will love one another because to not keep this commandment means the end of the world.
This is a letter I am sending to the Networks and others regarding the recent shooting in an elementary school in Connecticut. I am sick of all the evil influences in this society and all the easy access to all kinds of weaponry. We need some kind of controls on dangerous weapons, even though anyone up to something can get a gun from some criminal on the street, you still have to have some way of monitoring the need for stockpiling, etc. This always comes up in mass shootings. What seldom comes up is evil control. The evil that is pumped into everyone’s home everyday in a box. The evil that is in video games, in movies, etc. The evil that most of you must like or they wouldn’t make it. I hate it. I am one of the few who don’t watch most things on TV or read most popular novels of the day. They are offensive and have way to much graphic violence. I am wary of people who are numb to this. The ones that are not bothered by blood and carnage that would make a normal person sick to their stomach. Who is making these freaks rich? Not me, thank God. The rest of you non-believers, shame on you! This crap gives no glory to God and no help to His people!
To whom it may concern:
I am writing this to tell you of my extreme displeasure of they way you sponsor and encourage murder and destruction of this civilized society. I know you want to make a living, but brainwashing others to kill and mass murder is not an honorable profession and will no longer be tolerated. I will make it my life’s mission to stop you and everyone that is in the same profession as you from continuing to destroy this society by causing the deaths of innocent people, including the children that were just murdered today by yet another angry sociopath.
The proof I have that it is your fault is the fact that most people have had guns in their homes for decades and only in the last 20 – 30 years, since the glut of all the graphically violent TV programs and movies, have we seen such a rise of murders and mass murders. Young people are especially impressionable. There are many angry, empty vessels that see this graphic violence daily. Just because you can create realistic corpses and other disgusting things, does not mean you should put people to work making them and incite the mentally ill to imitate what you create.
People that are angry and mentally weak could easily fall victim to these constant suggestions. There are virtually no morally decent programs on network television anymore and it is not for lack of audience. People are stuck watching whatever you choose to broadcast. Thankfully I am not one of them. The few times I try to watch something I am offended at the disgusting comments that are even made in comedies. One line was “I would kill a hobo to get laid.” How the hell is killing a man to have sex funny to anyone? Have any of you or any of your writers had a loved one murdered lately? I would not think that you would think it was funny and how you cannot see that you are part of this problem, is beyond me. You and your writers may as well have gone to that school and pulled the trigger yourself.
I am also going to speak to congress, the news stations and even The President about this and try to get as many of my friends and family to join in to complain about the danger of your idea of entertainment. This bad influence that you cause is going to stop now. The only way people like you could even live with yourselves is to be on drugs. This may be why you all use such bad judgment.
Guns don’t kill people, lack of faith kills people. This country has no right to be allowed to take God’s words out of public buildings, but pump filth into every home. This destroys our American way of life and causes so many lost, disturbed people. That and the fact that most decent parents have to work all the time to survive and don’t have enough time to really parent their children or to see if there is anything wrong with them. The parents that get high, can’t hold a job(sitting in front of the TV) and abuse their children are another big problem in creating angry, mentally ill children. We have to support each other with positive influence and have ways to help those that need it before it is too late for any of us. The schools are the main way to find out who these problematic students and parents are before tragedies happen.
So, what to do about bad parenting and bad influences. There is a lot of work to be done.
