The mainstream media on the day of the shooting was quick in defining Esteban Santiago, the Fort Lauderdale shooter, as a mental case. To the best of our knowledge, he has never been diagonsed with anything 'mental'.
We all know the media just wants to advance the democrats’ gun control agenda. But the picture above is quite telling: the ISIS finger salute, the Middle Eastern scarf. It all points to terrorism. Even CBS reported that Santiago was ‘being forced to fight for ISIS'’.
We know authorities are not ruling out terror at this point. Whether or not this is an act of terrorism or an act of someone with ‘mental health’ issues, the fact of the matter is this is EVIL.
Let’s assume for a moment this man has ‘mental health’ issues – and therefore, he’s nothing but a victim, according to the general leftist world view. Santiago must be mentally ill and therefore he shouldn’t own a gun. It’s the gun’s fault, you see.
But this man also has TWO women – one in Alaska and one in Puerto Rico – and two kids – one with each. He’s been accused of beating up his girlfriend (presumably the woman in Alaska) and has been aggressive with his relatives on a regular basis. Presumably, he abandoned his wife in Puerto Rico too.
I don’t call that being a victim. I call that EVIL
You see, there’s right and wrong in this world. Since Santiago has never been diagnosed with a mental illness, the conclusions are obvious:
He PLANNED. He USED HIS HEAD to execute the attack, whatever his motives.
His problem isn’t intellectual – he’s not ‘mental’. He doesn’t have a ‘mental problem’. He’s not ‘mentally ill’.
His problem is with his HEART. His problem is SIN.
Evildoers always have a problem with their hearts.
Intellectually, Santiago knows what he’s doing. He’s not dumb. He’s EVIL. He’s SINFUL. What he did is a SIN.
We need to call it for what it is. We can’t continue making excuses for sin.
These days killing a baby in his mother’s womb is a choice. It’s a choice alright – a choice to KILL. That’s a SIN.
These days having multiple sexual partners is called fun. It may be fun alright, but it’s also a SIN.
These days homosexuality is a ‘life-style’. It may be a life-style alright, but it’s also a SIN.
If you have a problem with the word SIN you don’t need to tell me – take it up with God.
When you take God out of your life, you will find IDOLS somewhere else. You will idolize people who do what you do, thus LEGITIMIZING YOUR SIN.
Whether Esteban Santiago is a terrorist or just a murderer makes no difference.
Whether he worships Allah or Charles Manson makes no difference, because the problem with Santiago is HIS HEART.
When your HEART is right with God, you don’t kill anybody. You don’t WANT to kill, you don’t WANT to be gay, you don’t WANT to have multiple sex partners – YOU DON’T WANT TO SIN.
I’m not saying you don’t sin. I’m saying you DON’T WANT to sin. When you don't want to do something, chances are you are NOT going to do it.
Santiago’s brother said Esteban, the shooter, is ‘spiritual’. Spiritual? Really? How exactly?
The Spirit of God is definitely not within Esteban Santiago. The guy beats up women and has two families, but abandoned the one in Puerto Rico – and yet his own brother doesn’t see anything wrong with that?! And the next step was what, mass shooting?!
How is any of this 'spiritual'?!
Well, it's not. It's all SIN.
How do you combat sin?
With the Bible!
The only way to have more peace in this world, more meaningful relationships, less crime and less sin is if we are taught the word of God.
I think it’s time to bring the Bibles back into our schools. But since that may not happen any time soon, we as parents have the obligation to raise responsible adults – people who won’t kill, or steal, or cheat. It’s OUR JOB to raise our children to be able to tell right from wrong. If we don’t teach our children to follow Christ, the world will teach them not to.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he’s old he will not depart from it.
