In Part II of America’s Umbrella-Less Public Schools, twenty-three pro-God provisions were discussed that would provide for safer public schools in America. In Part III of America’s Umbrella-Less Public Schools, other provisions outside of the public school setting that would also help create safer public schools are discussed. Once crucial problem that needs to be addressed is the mania for entertainment as is evident in vicious videogames and Hollywood death movies, such as The Hunger Games.
Unfortunately, it appears that this mania for entertainment has evolved into a new game that is many times more diabolical than The Hunger Games. This new game could very viciously be called Death at the Public School. The main objective of this game would be to kill as many public school students as possible before getting killed yourself. But, what would drive bored teenagers to attempt to eliminate the boredom in their lives by seeking a deathly diversion, such as the killing of public school students? According to the federal government’s perspective, the problematic issue that triggered all the perpetrators that have killed so many school children was their unstable mental health. True, the mental state of the murderers of school age children, teens, and adults was in disarray. Of course, the government’s perspective is based on the study of psychology, which is inherently incorrect in this situation. However, as stated earlier, the real reason that most teenagers would victimize themselves and other people would be more of a spiritual problem than a mental health problem, even though the spiritual problem most likely would evolve into a mental health problem.
But, how could a mental health problem stem from a spiritual problem? The mental health problem could stem from a spiritual problem because, regardless of what secular humanist man believes, the perpetrators of public school students were ultimately driven by demonic spirits picked up in America’s public schools. Of course, since this is true, what was the catalyst that would permit demonic spirits to infiltrate the minds of unsuspecting students? The catalyst, as was stated earlier, was the removal of prayer and Bible-reading from all public school buildings. When God was forced to leave America’s public schools, the substitute spirits that filled the spiritual vacuum were demonic and had a different role to play than the Holy Spirit, which was God’s Protector of the students and adults in America’s public schools. Whereas, the Holy Spirit’s goal was to control the heart and soul of students for the purpose of leading them toward a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, which includes a life of peace, the demonic spirits’ goal was to control the mind of students for the purpose of destroying their mind, soul, and body, which includes a life of chaos and death. Therefore, unless the government permits students who would not ever hear about God and Jesus Christ at home or at church to be under the influence of the Holy Spirit at school, all the money spent on mental health treatments for mentally ill students and the passage of gun control legislation for the purpose of banning certain types of weapons would be “null and void.”
However, is the removal of prayer and Bible-reading from public schools the only reason that school shootings have increased so drastically? Of course, the answer is unequivocally “NO.” The other main reason is the Roe versus Wade Supreme Court Case of January 22, 1973. In this case, the Supreme Court gave humans to the right to legally kill babies created by God. As a result, more than 30 million unborn babies have been murdered mercilessly. In fact, more babies have been murdered through abortion than all the wars fought by the United States. But, how can the abortion of unborn babies be associated with the public school shootings that have taken hundreds of lives mercilessly, too. Simply speaking, a nation that does not value the sanctity of life should expect more killings than a nation that values the sanctity of life, since life means absolutely nothing to many of its people. Also, God is not going to bless a nation that supports the murder of innocent unborn babies which He created. Of course, if the truth be known, this is the reason that America is straddled with so many problems today.
On the other hand, God should not be blamed for these atrocious murders of innocent children and teenagers. In fact, the blame should be placed on Satan, the very entity that many people say does not exist. Remember, as was stated earlier, the buildings where public school shootings take place are the same building where God and His Holy Spirit were asked to leave and to take His Protective Umbrella with Him. Also, these are the same buildings where demonic spirits have moved into every crevice, where once God’s Holy Spirit dwelt. Therefore, since God is not welcome in America’s public schools at present and since the minds of too many teenagers have come under the control of satanic spirits, as was discussed earlier, the American society should sadly expect public school shootings to continue, unless a viable solution is developed by the federal government.
But, what would be a viable solution to the murder and mayhem that exists in America’s public schools? According to the federal government, it could possibly be the complete redesigning of the exterior and interior of America’s public school campuses. On the exterior, there could be armed guards at each door of the school buildings. Also, there could be a tall, barb-wired fence surround the entire campus. On the interior, there could be armed resource officers walking the halls in every building on the campus that hopefully would be able to stop any intruder that managed to get by the armed guards on the outside of the buildings. In other words, public school campuses that should by nature provide a safe learning environment for students would now resemble the outside of a prison. This in itself would not be conducive to learning, since students would be constantly reminded that their lives were in danger. Of course, if the federal government did develop a plan similar to the redesigning of the campuses, it would not work. As happens so often, manmade political solutions usually give a temporary, band-aid fix and are extremely expensive.
However, a God-ordained spiritual solution would work. For example, there is a true story from the Bible that is related to Moses and the plagues on ancient Egypt that best depicts the effects of a godly solution. The story centers on the Death Angel killing the firstborn in every Egyptian family, but sparing the lives of the firstborn in every Hebrew family. In Exodus 11:4-7, it reads,
4And Moses said, Thus saith the Lord, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:
5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.
7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.
Ultimately, God explicitly stated that the firstborn of each Egyptian family would die and that the firstborn of each Hebrew family would live. But, what would He use as a safety net for His chosen people. The answer is found in Exodus 12:3-13. It reads,
3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.
8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.
10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the Lord's passover.
12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.
13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
Therefore, since the Death Angel did not harm God’s chosen people as a result of putting the blood of a lamb on the top and sides of the door posts, as He had promised, the Lord God Jehovah, the God of the Jews and Christians, proved that He was more powerful than the gods of the Egyptians. As a result of this true, Biblical story, the best safety net for America’s public schools is the safety net provided by the Lord God Jehovah. He is much more powerful, loving, and has a greater success rate than the god of secular humanism, which is ordained by the federal government. Ultimately, the Blood of Jesus Christ that He shed on the Cross of Calvary is the only true safety net for America’s public school students. Hence, by placing it figuratively on the door posts of every entrance to public schools would provide the only true solution to keep the Death Angel from entering.
In conclusion, the speech that President Obama made at the interfaith prayer vigil on December 16, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut was a worthwhile speech. From the speech, one important sentence should be scrutinized one more time. It read, “If there is even one step we can take to save another child, or another parent, or another town, from the grief that has visited Tucson, and Aurora, and Oak Creek, and Newtown, and communities from Columbine to Blacksburg before that — then surely we have an obligation to try.” Of course, this is what President Obama and the federal government must do without any hesitation. However, the method that he purports to solve these public school shootings would not be the best possible solution. Basically, he wants to ban certain types of guns and concentrate on the law enforcement and mental health side of the problem. But, in reality, the only true solution would be a spiritual awakening in every sector of the American society, since the real problem is spiritual in nature, not political. Therefore, instead of attempting to ban guns in America, President Obama, along with Congress and the Supreme Court, must once again promote the Sanctity of Life in America and prohibit immediately the on demand abortion of millions of unborn babies . Also, President Obama, along with Congress and the Supreme Court, must pray and ask the Lord God Jehovah to forgive them of their rebellion toward Him and to return His Protective Umbrella to America’s Public Schools.
