The Charleston Church Massacre: Of “Princes and Principalities”

th (14)As the nation continues to reel from the savage attack by a lunatic with, evidently, a racial axe to grind, who murdered 9 innocent Christians in Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, I have a question to ask you this morning :

Do you believe in Evil?

According to Gallup. Com, 92% of us in this country believe in a Supreme Being.

Therefore, if you believe in a benevolent God, logic dictates that you also believe in the Prince of the air, Lucifer, now known as Satan, once God’s most beautiful angel, known as the Lightbringer, who was cast down from heaven after rebelling against God.

By now, “the smartest people in the room”, are groaning, saying to themselves,

Surely, this stupid old cracker is not going to suggest that “the Devil made him do it”?

Well, boys and girls, Biblical Experts, including our Christian Leaders, whom we listen to every Sunday morning, tell us that while Satan is not allowed to physically harm us, as all of these popular Horror Movies “preach”, he is the Master of Deception and will continuously whisper in our ear, until he convinces us that wrong is right in right is wrong.

As Adam said to Eve,

I’ll bite.

I have spent the last couple of days, when I wasn’t working at my job, watching in fascination, as the Left side of the Political Aisle, as we euphemistically call Modern American Liberals, have inundated Facebook with articles and ignorant memes, attempting to make the murderer, Dylann Roof, out to be a Conservative White Supremacist.

This has turned out to be a completely false accusation, as his friends have related that the young man was not even interested in politics, whatsoever.

So, why did this young man turn into a murderous sociopath?

Somewhere, somehow, this 9th grade dropout, became convinced, through watching the news, and listening to the voices in his head, demons, imps, call them what you will, that America’s black population was somehow taking over this country and ruining it.

He became convinced. in his troubled mind, that it was up to him to do something about it. So, he went to Wednesday Night Bible Study at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Of course, all of the theories put for by the before-mentioned Liberals, that I heard all day yesterday, were a continuance of the speech made by President Barack Hussein Obama from the previous day, in which he said, basically, that this wouldn’t have  happened, if America had stricter “Gun Laws”, i.e., Gun Control.

Of course, the answer given back to these Liberals on Facebook and everywhere else the last couple of days, has been, if somebody in that congregation had actually been armed, through their First Amendment Right, Dylann Roof would not have been successful.

Over the next several weeks, perhaps months, every person seeking attention and believing themselves to be a pundit, whether political, sociological, or psychological, will spout forth all sorts of theories as to the motives of this sociopath.

They will probably claim that he wasn’t given enough attention as a child. Or, maybe they’ll put forth that he was hanging around the wrong crowd. And, of course the political pundits on the Left side of the Political Aisle, will testify that it is because he is of the Conservative Political Ideology.

My theory, as to his motivation, is much more simple than that.

Dylann Roof is evil.

Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.

We see it everyday around us.

It inundates the cable news channels, 24 hours a day. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.

Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.

From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.

So, while Wednesday night’s massacre in Charleston is a single act of violence and pure evil in a sea of many, the reaction by Christian Americans  to it has been remarkable.

The outpouring of Christian Compassion and the act of forgiveness by the families of those slain by this madman, given to Dylann Roof, has made this Christian American take a step back for a moment and praise the Righteousness and Amazing Grace of the One Who made him.

Yes, my friends. We are still fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics have seemingly become the norm, instead of the exception.

However, the reaction to the events in Charleston have renewed my hope.

It is not a political hope, like we have heard spoken of, in the empty promises of man, for the last 7 years, Rather, mine is a hope, a belief, in the Divine Spark which is in each and every one of us. A Spark, which, if given the chance, glows brightly enough to not only to dispel, but to defeat the darkness around us.

So, as you go about your day today, remember, that we have an Advocate, in Jesus Christ the Righteous, and, He is in our corner.

So, take that “little light” of yours, and let it shine.

Until He Comes,

KJ
