When I heard about this shooting a little while ago on the radio, it brought to mind something Charles Stanley said:
"You reap what you sow, more than you sow and later than you sow."
I believe it was back in the early 1960's that prayer was taken out of the schools by our supreme court. Our country, especially the children, are reaping what Madalyn Murray O'Hair sowed. She wanted prayer out of schools, unbelievably, she got her way! Now instead of prayer in schools, we have guns. We have little regard for human life. We have murder in schools.
When this happened in August of 1966, 16 people were killed at the University of Texas. People were shocked and outraged. This wasn't the first incident of this sort, but it was very notable for the number of people murdered. School shootings continued after this, mostly on a small scale. I don't remember school shootings ever making the national news until 1999 with the Columbine school shooting. Since then, including today, I can find 79 more school shootings in the US. They are on the increase.
Pastor Stanley has been proven correct. Prayer was taken out of the schools and Satan has been allowed in. He's taken up residence and we are reaping what we sowed when we allowed prayer to be taken out of schools. The number of schools shootings is on the increase so we are reaping more than we sowed. It's been about 50 years since prayer was taken out of the schools so we are reaping later than we sowed. We sowed to the wind when we took prayer out of the schools. Now our schools are reaping the whirlwind.
(What the poster is completely ignorant of is that this was at a Christian college, the gunman was 43 years old, a former student and is a Korean national, who would not have gone to or been affected by the prayer policy in American public schools.)
