The Uvalde Tragedy

The Events at Robb Elementary

The media is filled with reports of a young man, Salvador Ramos, 18, who shot and killed 19 children and 2 adults on a shooting rampage at Robb Elementary School, in Uvalde, Texas.

Many theories are being advanced on how and why this horrific incident could happen; various groups are using it as an opportunity to advance their agendas. Much is being said about mental illness, and gun control.

What is conspicuously absent is any reference to sin! In Galatians 5:19-21 this young man’s basic problem is explained:

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

The behavior of Salvador Ramos would indicate he was spiritually dead and under the control of his sin nature; as is pointed out in the verses above, murders are part of the evident works of the flesh.

The only solution to his problem would have been to receive Jesus Christ as his Savior and the new birth by the power of the Holy Spirit; sadly, for all involved, it is too late for that.

May God’s peace, comfort and guidance surround all those who grieve over the loss of those precious lives!
