Turning Away from Reality is Spiritual

NOTE:  The escape from reality and truth in this message does not
include temporary self-denial or crisis amnesia
.

It took the newscasters, for the most part, to get around the spiritual
aspect of the killing of the 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary School
in Connecticut, and even then it was seeking for comfort rather than an
explanation of cause and possible motivations.  In attempts you explain
it, the newscasters used FBI agents, detectives, psychologists, and even
there fellow newscasters {primarily the past news coverage of similar
school and theatre killings} to explain possible causes and motivations.  
You noticed it, solutions for the most part were in terms of MENTAL
adjustments, not SPIRITUAL.  You would think that across this land of
America, there are not thousands of churches every Sunday preaching
and teaching on the effects of Christian and non-Christian behavior.  Just
this unusual phenomenon, within itself, demands an explanation.
GIST:  However the primary gist of this message on Refreshing
Evangelism is that such behavior of this shooter, and other shooters,
speaks to the TURNING AWAY FROM truth and reality as a direct result
of at least 40 years of the Falling Away in American life, among the
shooters, their parents, the community, educators, and the many
mediums of a lack of reality like games, TV, and movies.

10-1:  If you have not already read online from www.
biblecombibleman.com  the presentations on “From Follies to
Fables” and the personality affects of strong delusions--not with
just one youth, but with the cumulative effects of culture, society,
and heritage.
All is not right with any community, family, or individual--above the age of
accountability--, or country and countries education when God is left out.  
Beyond the very popular tendency to apologize for God and faith in
God, Christ, and the Bible is the necessity for convictions and the
courage of convictions which beg for expression in a free society like
ours!
10-2:  It is almost sadistic the news showing of photos of the killed
children, and the revelation that one child had 11 bullet holes; which
while we know is a combined effort of news, social workers, and
eductors for gun control, the reality that needs to be faced is that the
shooter looked at the targets unrealistically as rag dolls.
10-3:  Bottom line on the spiritual of the Bible on any tragedy like
Sandy Hook is “if in this life we only have hope, then we are of all
man most miserable”  (I Corinthians 15:19), and those who refuse
the Refreshing Evangelism obviously keep themselves in despair
outside the optimism and hope of the Bible.
10-4:  If Refreshing Evangelism has nothing to say on death, it misses
half the Bible on life after death; and if you have not already found the
Bible on life, you miss the first half.
Several persons interviewed at Sandy Hook were heard to say in
frustration, at a loss for anything else to say, that “I suppose this is life,
and part of life.”  Perhaps sufficient for those outside of Christ, and the
realities of God, salvation, and the Bible this is sufficient; but oh my, if as
Bible believing Christians we leave the message here, we, no doubt,
have become fictions of the extremes of the tolerance of the American
Democratic faith over Bible convictions and courage of convictions.

10-5:  Apart from Christ, God, and the Bible Christians have no
answer sufficient for life and death with its implications of good and
evil.

10-6:  In the case of Job, tragedy was the opportunity for a blessing
of God which we would have to call “A Touch of the Eternal”, such
a touch of which seldom comes with refreshing to the lives of an
increasing number of Americans
.

10-7:  The effort is not being made in this prophesy of edification,
comfort, and exhortation to put Sandy Hook in the category of
“Calamites Chase Chastisements” of Jeremiah and Prophesy;
however it must be stated in the name of Refreshing Evangelism,
that the same falling away that created the intense series of
calamities in America since 9/11 has also brought an increase in the
“because sin and lawlessness shall abound” like the sin and
lawlessness of Sandy Hook.

{Yes secular psychologists, killing of any kind, is a sin according to the
Bible as well as against the law; and as such is to be dealt with also
according to the Bible like with all other sin!}

NOTE:  Oh hurting one, when you see this beloved child or loved
one in the arms of Jesus after either death or the Second Coming,
all these tears and griefs will be wiped away!

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be
no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain,
for the former things have passed away.”  (Revelation 21:4)

In fact, the Bible promises believers that “the former things will be
remembered no more”.  Granted Sandy Hook, one of the most painful
aspect of this tragedy is the horrible memories that will not go away; but
just imagine the eternity where such memories will be remembered no
more.  

NOTE:  I bet you can’t get your secular psychologist or most
advisors and counselors to say “You will not remember this tragedy
in eternity, goodness you will have this precious child in your arms
in your permanent new home, made by God, on the new earth.

10-8:  Face up to realities, it is the responsibility of school
administrators, educators, and the police to protect America children
once they are out in public, once they have been entrusted by the
family for proper care.
If you must, like so many citizens have learned recently, let someone at
school get trained to meet the hidden gun law.

10-9:  The same public that ignores even the subject of death, has
already made one step to “turning away from truth
”.

10-10:  Most families in America have a child in school, therefore
should also deal with life and death; and Refreshing Evangelism
from the Bible is qualified to deal with life and death.
Death like life, requires “times of refreshing from the presence of the
Lord”.  After all, Job because of his enduring faith in God, received such
a refreshing from God Himself, years before Peter preached!

10-11:  Let’ face a hard reality, there are serious consequences to
pay when any country, including America, builds up growth in the
neglect of God, like the Bible states in Romans, a refusal “to retain
God in their knowledge” (Romans 1:28); and certainly to all who
consider knowledge as contained in the mentality, here we and the
secular psychologists have common ground--hardly though they
would commit to the full quote of the Bible below, nor would the
sociologists, educators, and social workers.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God
them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not
convenient...,”  (Romans 1:28)

1.  Since the description of what happens to any society as they excuse
themselves from God, we can join in with the seculars in attributing some
evil to the mental; that is, “God gave them over to a debased mind.”
2.  All, especially in America, are born and raised with a certain
knowledge of God; although the obvious neglect of family and culture
create a social environment that excuses God and faith in God.
3.  No person is ready for crisis without the comfort of God, Christ, and
the Bible; primarily because most have no meaning apart from the
consolations of eternity.  Heaven and the new earth is Gods own plan for
justice for all, and without waiting and hoping for that justice you can find
no meaning.
4.  Even as it is not convenient to be a gay, in the sight and Bible of
God, that is just the example of inconvenient behaviors when any society
neglects Go dl  Can you take the list, one might say the roll of dishonor in
society?  It is a semi-colon continuation in Romans 1:29 from Romans 1:
28 above  See if it does not help to explains many such unwarranted
tragedies as Sandy Hook, Columbine, and the Aurora theatre.

“...being filled with all unrighteousness, sexuality immorality,
wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder,
strife, deceit, evil-mindedness, they are whisperers, backbiters,
haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents, undiscerning, unforgiving, unmerciful; who,
knowing the righteous judgment of God, not only do the same but
also approve of those who practise them.”  (Romans 1:29-32)

The human soul includes a heart, a mind, and a will; and if you neglect
the soul’s need for God and right, you neglect the most eternal aspects
of character and personality, you create a vacuum that evil rushes into,
and where good should dwell and thrive!

10-12:  Could the failure to hear and express such convictions as
these Bible thoughts on Refreshing Evangelism, but an intolerable
compromise with the convictions of the world, or perhaps a tacit
admission that churches and church members are not as Christian
as they thought?

“For the time will come {has come, we must say} when they
{obviously Christians and church members, or any that once had
strong convictions} will not endure sound doctrine, but according to
their own desires {even as a failure to think abut God starts with
“likes”, so the practical matter where churches either heap up or
heap out teachers of sound doctrine starts with what these same
church members “wants”}, because they have itching ears {in 2
quick phrases we have from the original church organiser, we have
both the how and the why of failures at all sound doctrine including
the retention of the teachings of God and about God}, they will heap
up for themselves teachers {oh the heaping up today of false
prophets}; and they will turn their ears away from the truth {they
just plain stop listening to only that which tickles their ears and
comforts them}, and be turned aside to fables.”  (II Timothy 4:3,4)

NOTE that it is God the Father Himself, that after witnessing that
historical point in history called the great apostasy or falling way, then it
is He that turns them aside to fables!  Or bare min, permits it!
