I wasn’t going to post on the subject, but my young friend Cara has a few wise words that I really had to pass along for others to see. Please take 90 seconds and go read No Window Jumping.
Much longer but also well worth the time: Doug Phillips’ post On The Horror At Virginia Tech, along with readers’ comments that he received in response.
Don’t go to these links expecting to read soft words of sorrow and sympathy. We all mourn the victims and the wickedness that was done, but standing about making sad eyes at one another won’t do a bit of good.
Our nation has so much to repent for…
As it is, I rejoice, not because you were grieved, but because you were grieved into repenting. For you felt a godly grief, so that you suffered no loss through us.
For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.
2 Corinthians 7:9-10
