We keep having mass shootings where some person enters a populated area and opens fire upon the innocent people there. Most of these shooters commit suicide, but many have been gunned down by the police. We also have cities like Chicago, where being gunned down is a daily event; but so are many other towns.
Fire your bullets first and think about it later is the motto many have chosen.
Repentance is a word that the Bible speaks a great deal about because only by repentance can a man gain relationship with God and others. Repentance means stop doing something and in the Bible case, it means evil (Matthew 3:2,8, 11:21, 12:41; Luke 13:3, 15:7, 17:3-4; Acts 2:38, 3:19, 8:22, 17:30, 26:20; 2 Corinthians 12:21; 2 Peter 3:9.
In order to do better in this life, we must conform ourselves to what the word of the Lord teaches. It is only by repentance and turning our lives around can we get rid of the mess that we are experiencing in our world. The crime, the hate, the greedy motives, sexual harassment. etc.
All of this stuff is because of sin and sin is because no repentance. We must repent and we hope to get everyone to start thinking about repentance (Jonah 3). If we can change one person with this writing, we have done something mighty good; for that will be one lest soul for Satan. Think of repentance!
