A Plethora of Insane Christian Quotes Regarding Aurora Shooting

A Plethora of Insane Christian Quotes Regarding Aurora Shootings

All from the same Christian Post article!

“What happened up in Aurora … was the product of pure evil. It was the result of a depraved individual taking his free will to the extreme,”  -Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family

“The Fall released human moral evil into the cosmos, and every single human being is a sinner, tempted by a full range of sinfulness,” he wrote in a commentary. “We cannot afford to be shocked when humans commit grotesque moral evil. It tells us the truth about unbridled human sin.”  -Dr. Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

The Christian Post interviewed Greg Stier, the founder of Dare 2 Share Ministries who had lots of insane things to say.

“It brings a whole new meaning to ‘Dark Knight rising’ – not in a good way.”

“You can’t help but think of Satan – you know that dark knight who was once that white knight … the highest of all angels who … got thrown out of heaven and has now been on the earth perverting, killing, whispering in ears.”

 “our struggle is not against people … but against a person in the spiritual realm. “

“There is a highly organized, systematized army of darkness.”

“I kind of go back to Adam and Eve and blame Adam for taking a bite of that fruit and poison[ing] humanity with the capacity for horrific sins,”

So what now? Christians need to spread the Gospel, Stier said. It was Christ who came to provide a solution – he conquered sin through his death and resurrection.

“We got to get that message … out to as many people as possible,”

Stier also stated that he looks forward to the fulfillment of Revelation and “All evil will be sucked up in this bottomless pit…Until then, we have a battle to fight.”

I find this to be a) insane and b) frustrating due to my interactions with liberal believers that do not talk like this. Whenever I bring up the really outrageous aspects of their own religion they get defensive and dismissive as if people like this do not exist or are just simply wrong. Obviously, they exist and they are dangerous. We have plenty of people within the upper echelons of the American government that believe this nonsense. Also, I will always snicker at any faithful believer that says another faithful believer is wrong. Oh really! How so? Prove it!

OK follow me on this one: If I go on a murderous rampage it is a result of the base, depraved and fallen nature of all humanity. But if I win the lottery, catch a touchdown pass or murder a black teenager its God's will and I am blessed.
Are we really supposed to believe that these people understand some universal truth about reality?
