The murders in Chicago aren’t the fault of the government nor failure of the police. The murders in Chicago exist because people have made the decision to kill. A guy can plot to rob a bank and kill all the employees and customers. An abusive husband can shoot his wife and children dead. Two young men arguing in the streets can pull out guns and open fire on each other. A robber can open fire upon a fleeing victim killing him or sending a bullet into the park striking a child. Gangs and drug dealers can declare war on rivals filling the streets with blood, etc, etc. All this evil begins in the minds of the person or persons carrying out the deeds.
Such evil cannot be eliminated until people cease their works of sin (Genesis 6:5-13; Jonah 3:6-10; Ezekiel 33:11).
That is why the gospel of Jesus Christ is very important to the lives of men (1 Timothy 1:9-17). We need the word of the Lord to teach us to refuse evil and embrace good, to control ourselves and to get along with others (Proverbs 2:1-22). The church of the Lord is attempting to reach men right now. The church would like to help men understand that God has a better way to live, but man must be willing to accept what the scriptures teach (John 1:12; James 1:20-21).
