Killing Innocents -- A Remedy

As I read and listened to Bill O'Reilly's talking points memo entitled, "Killing Innocents" this morning, Mr. O'Reilly comes to this conclusion regarding the killing of innocent people in our nation:

"Only a society that insists all human life is valuable and a mass media that promotes that will begin to see a turn-away from violence. It's all about the philosophy of loving your neighbor.  Not the myth that a centralized government can prevent barbaric behavior."

Mr. O'Reilly hits the proverbial nail on the head. Until our society "insists all human life is valuable" (including the innocent life in the womb of mothers) chaotic violence will continue in our nation.

However, it is not "the philosophy of loving your neighbor" ..... but the command to "love your neighbor as yourself" as a directive from the Lord (Mark 12:28-31).

The remedy for ungodly violence is simple: Until we as a society are willing to obey and follow all of the commands and spiritual principles found in the New Testament, our society will only become more evil and violent as time goes on (2 Timothy 3:13).

Satan is winning the battle over the souls of men simply because it's easier to believe Satan's lies, than to "study" for yourself (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV) and "obey" God's absolute truth (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12; cf. John 17:17; Romans 6:17).

Beloved, that's not a memo that's the absolute truth!
