How do you stop an army of soulless killers?
The Chicago Tribune columnist article titled, (There) Ain’t No Age Period, ended her column with the above “soulless” question about the trial of a retribution killing of an 8-year-old child.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to question how a person comes to be described as soulless in Chicago.
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. (Ecclesiastes 12:7)
Excerpts Gils Bible Commentary
The body, which is made of dust,
Now at death the soul, or spirit of man, returns to God; which if understood of the souls of men in general, it means that at death they return to God the Judge of all,
What’s My Point?
If you read the article, the writer’s question implies the killer has no soul. However, faith believers know better.
Another sad question is wonder if the killer of the innocent boy only eight years old in an act of gang avengement was ever introduced in his youth to obtain the understanding and knowledge that leads to Spiritual Wisdom. Wisdom to understand and believe that when he was born, he was blessed with both a body and a soul or spirit as king Solomon described 3000 years ago.
In My Opinion
We need school vouchers in Chicago.
If you believe in a Spiritual Judgement of all after death, is it possible that people responsible for preventing children from being taught religious values which hopefully might have prevented this “soulless” killing mentality, might also bear some guilt in this crime?
Read the article and previous posts in the Source Links below.
Do you believe the accused killer was ever taught any religious values of the blessing bestowed of both body and spirit to every human born?
Do you agree with the writer’s question that implies the accused is soulless?
Why is it fair to parents to pay to send their children to private religious schools and also obligated to pay for public schools? Especially failing quality public schools in high crime poverty areas of the city. Especially if they cannot afford to pay for private school.
