Tragedy at Nursery

I just saw this in the news: Knife Attack at Nursery.

I hate to use a tragedy to make a point, but gun control will never stop those intent on violence. Here, a man killed two people and injured many more at a Belgian nursery. And he didn't need a gun to do it. He used a knife.

No law would have prevented this tragedy. It is absolutely ignorant to believe we will ever legislate away evil. It is stupid to think for one moment that our paradise is within reach, if we only pass the right laws.

. . . for the intention of man’s heart is evil from his youth. Gen 8:21b

Our solution and salvation do not lie in more government or more laws. That will always be a step in the wrong direction. When man's folly is the problem, man will be incapable of a viable solution.

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. Psalms 127:1
