Is lack of Christian school vouchers the real reason why more people die from the use of guns to commit suicide or overdose on drugs and die in auto accidents?
Two Chicago Tribune articles reveal clues to what is the real reason for mortality statistics in the USA.
You decide if my opinion on these issues is wise or foolish.
King Solomon’s Dream, (Kings 3:10-15)
“Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, 12 I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. 13 Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both wealth and honor—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings. 14 And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life.”
Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind. (Ecclesiastes 1:17)
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it .(Proverb 22:6)
What’s My Point?
The Chicago Tribune columnist pointed out the surprising statistics that prove that deaths from gun use in criminal acts are declining while use of guns for suicide are rising.
The other article, is about a drug addict seller who gave his friend a drug which caused his death is being sentenced to a year in prison.
In previous posts about my disgust that politicians are being puffed to push for legalization of recreational marihuana in spite on proven medical proof it screws up human brain functions, will become a gateway to use of more potent drug use to a significant number who try or use marijuana, and is proven to increase auto accident rates and deaths in States that have approved recreational marijuana.
In other words, the American Dream is, in reality, no longer bears any relationship to King Solomon’s dream recorded in the Bible.
All because ever since the American Government took over education in the USA the cost of education has skyrocketed and resulted in an average of Christian families no longer to be able to pay the high taxes to support public secular schools and send their children to private religious schools.
In My Opinion
All of the above factors which are leading to suicide, crime, drug addiction, auto deaths, and even higher mental problems to a degree because secular schools are forbidden to teach Spiritual Wisdom which includes Christian teachings to value life, theirs, fellow humans, plant and animal, all created by God.
Read in the Source Links below an article about Christian teaching in relation to suicide.
Also, a link to a number of previous posts about the clues to madness and folly of legalizing recreational marijuana, and not allowing school voucher, in my opinion.
Is the clue realistic to the causes of high rates of mortality realistic or chasing the wind?
Is lack of Christianity teachings leading clue to pursuit of evil pleasures instead following God’s path of wisdom and love to life’s good gifts of the American Dream?
Is this post wise or foolish to identify the real clues for the madness and folly of preventing parents from sending their children to be taught Christian values that lead to long life. In other words, teach them to ask for God’s Wisdom and Love in their lives.
