In a chilling reminder of the laws of cause and effect, an American Christian group have proposed a reason for the bloodshed of the Virginia Tech massacre.
On Monday morning,
16th April, 2007,
a 23-year-old male student armed with two pistols and multiple clips of ammunition, murdered at least 30 people locked inside a Virginia Tech academic building in
before taking his own life.
The VA Tech senior is also suspected of killing two other students earlier in a co-ed dormitory building, for a total of 33 dead in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. The mass on-campus killings are immediately, eerily, sadly, and tragically reminiscent of the Columbine High shootings on
April 20, 1999
, which killed 15, including the two teen male student shooters.
President George Bush said on Monday, "Schools should be places of safety and sanctuary and learning. When that sanctuary is violated, the impact is felt in every American classroom and every American community."
But Columbia Christians for Life, based in
picking up on President Bush’s words, asked him: ‘What about the violation of the "safety" and "sanctuary" of a mother's womb by abortion, and that impact, Mr. Bush ? Over 47 Million have been murdered by surgical abortion alone in
since 1973! (www.ldi.org).' At VA Tech's polytheistic ecumenical convocation Tuesday, President Bush said, "It's impossible to make sense of such violence and suffering."
Steve Lefemine, the Director of Columbia Christians for Life, said Mr Bush was wrong. ‘If you will search the Scriptures you referred to in your remarks at VA Tech, perhaps you will see God's commandment of obedience to Him, for a nation to enjoy peace and security (e.g., Lev. 26:5,6).'
Lefemine continued: ‘ABORTION, which is violence against children while in the wombs of their mothers, is the root cause of the violence that we see coming out of this generation of youth. The Bible says, “Blood toucheth blood" (Hosea 4:2), or bloodshed follows bloodshed. Innocent bloodshed in the womb is being followed by innocent bloodshed around our nation. The 33 killed Monday at VA Tech is 1/100th of the estimated 3,300 murdered daily by surgical abortion alone on American soil in
's approx. 740 child-murder-by-abortion domestic terror centers (www.ldi.org). There are spiritual principles of corporate bloodguilt and blood recompensation revealed in the Bible which apply when innocent blood is shed upon a land, as in the case today of government-protected child-murder-in-the-womb.
'We adults should not be surprised that a generation of youth is resorting to violent murder to resolve their problems with others, even when it ends in the taking of their own lives. The Bible says that God is not mocked, that we reap what we sow (Galatians 6:7). For the last 34-plus years, we have sown violence into the next generation by murdering children in the womb. God spoke through His servant the prophet Hosea over 2700 years ago, to the people of Israel:
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, ... seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6 KJV
'It is time for the adults of
to repent. We have sinned grievously and wickedly against the next generation. We have killed one-third of the post-Roe generation by surgical abortion alone, and probably two to three times that number chemically with abortifacient birth control, e.g., birth control pills, Depo-Provera, Norplant, IUD, etc. We have taught the next generation that it is OK to fornicate, and if necessary, it is OK to "choose" to kill those pre-birth human beings in the womb who are unwanted. Now (e.g., Columbine, VA Tech) we are reaping the bad fruit of what we have sown. We have sown violence in the womb with abortion, and now we are reaping violence in schools, on the streets, in homes, and around the nation. These shootings are a sign and a judgment from God Himself.
delegate George Mason said in the 1787 Constitutional Convention, "By an inevitable chain of causes and effects,
punishes nation sins by national calamities." Child-murder-by-abortion is a national sin. Columbine, 9-11, Katrina, and VA Tech have all been national calamities. More and greater divine judgment is coming upon
, even destruction, unless we repent of the national sin of abortion.’
Stephen Green, National Director of Christian Voice, added: ‘It is not just
which needs to repent. We have just the same anti-life attitude in
, the same sort of figures for abortions as a proportion of conceptions, the same determination to leave morality and marriage to the ‘market’, the same societal death-wish and the same sort of disaffected youth. Our youth are into knives as well as guns, and increasingly carry the latter despite hand-guns being banned after Dunblane, to a chorus of how much safer our streets were going to be. They use both to settle the most trivial of disputes, or to rob for peanuts, without any recognition of the worth of human life.
also share responsibility for the wreckage of
, where 200 people were murdered in
alone yesterday. We seem able to export and amplify our lawlessness. Unless we too repent of the evil of abortion, by which in
over 6 million children have died since 1968, and begin to rebuild morality and marriage, at every level of society, we can expect the judgment of God. Nor will it just fall on the lower classes, whom our elite hold in contempt. It will fall on our leaders as well. They too will reap what they have sown.’
