Yesterday 5 journalists and media personnel were brutally killed in Maryland. The killer was angry that the newspaper published a negative article about him.
Freedom of speech and freedom of the press are under assault in America and around the world. Even when you think your name is maligned, you submit to the will of God. Do not resort to violence.
We are seeing a weekly mass shootings these days. Some people said we need more mental healthcare. It is more than a mental health problem. It is evil residing in human heart.
How to control violent thoughts?
Personally, I think about Jesus and his cross. I ask myself, how would Jesus respond? Did n’t he forgive people who offended him?
The best antidote to violence is Jesus and His cross. Let us hope our society recognizes this great truth.
