The most horrific church massacre in U.S. history at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas reveals many things.
We sadly see the face of evil once again and the carnage that comes from it. We view the heroism of the Good Samaritans who shot and chased down the despicable murderer.
We hear the clamor for stricter gun laws and the response that no laws could have prevented this crime and that Texas-carry laws actually prevented more deaths.
But what are the larger lessons? I submit they include the devil’s momentary advantage and Christ’s eternal hope.
