20 hurt in school stabbing

| April 9, 2014

Guns, knives, baseball bats, cars, whatever, we cannot deny that our culture seems to be growing increasingly violent and our children are paying the price. Some will say more security—even more guns—in society will protect us. Unfortunately, that doesn’t get to the root of the problem. The real question is, why are we so violent? Some Fort Wayne activists have offered that the problem is we have abandoned or faith in GOD and, therefore, no longer have the spiritual eyes to see the demon influence on our children and others. (Take a drive down Rudisill Boulevard or past Unity Barber Shop on Pontiac and know that some people still have spiritual vision.) Of course, some will scoff and say this is madness. But, call it demonic influence or mental illness, something is very wrong with our spiritual state. Once again, with this incident, we see the horrifying evidence.
