The Christian web sites are full of commentary about the 20 some people killed in Denver. I’d suggest to not read into it something not present.
Albert Mohler, Jr., President of the Southern Baptist Seminary, writes, “ Christians are driven by instinct to think in biblical or theological terms.”
He is right some Christians often think these events have meaning. They don’t.
They attribute importance to their religion and their own particular version of it. The Bible and theology are useless in explaining what happened.
Someone wrote our secularism caused it. Then, there are Christians who write there is too much arguing in the faith, this is why it happened.
Mohler argued that somehow the Christian god reduces such impulses in people and makes them happen less frequently than would otherwise. Then, he makes an even more foolish point the cross somehow turns the person committing the crime onto himself.
To place this event in perspective, let’s start with an undeniable fact. On the same day these 20 some people were murdered, 127 people (average), were killed on U. S. highways. Of these 127, about half were killed where alcohol was involved. So, that is 60 some people killed in alcohol related deaths every day.
Do the Christian instincts to ponder the biblical or theological meanings kick in when you read about automobile deaths? Of course not.
The god cannot stop any of these from happening. Humans and prevent them by being more responsible.
