Will Chicago’s Mayor and Police Chief ‘recipes’ to control the violence ever be achieved unless this recipe is changed?
The Chicago Tribune Columnist Article titled: Every mayor for the last 30 years has failed to keep his or her promise to bring the violence under control. Our patience is wearing thin, ended with this following statement:
“If Lightfoot and Brown can’t help us protect our children, we will keep searching until we find a mayor and police superintendent who can.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb, a Roman Empower, and my opinion why no politician or police chief will ever reduce the violence in Chicago, unless the school recipes are changed to the Someone Who can.as proven in history.
“In a moment when he is consciously in God’s presence, he prays for “wisdom” (10), a quality defined and illustrated in the book of Proverbs. It includes a mind open to all kinds of knowledge (1 Kings 4:30,33), shrewdness in understanding and communicating with people, and a strong moral commitment to justice and integrity (Prov. 1:2-4). All these are given coherence by wisdom’s most important quality: reverence and humility towards God.”
Roman Emperor –
During the reign of the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great (AD 306–337), Christianity began to transition to the dominant religion of the Roman Empire.
What’s My Point?
The core reason for most of the violence occurring in Chicago is the result of children growing up without being introduced to in depth understanding of the wisdom and love teachings in the Christian Bible.
To prove my point, if a study is conducted of every convicted criminal to find our if they attended a public secular school vs a private religious school which teaches God, the Bible, Wisdom Proverbs to instill discipline, and in depth understanding of this following Bible verse:
In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the Prophets. Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.… (Matthew 7:12-13)
My point is politicians and police will never solve the problems of violence in Chicago if children are never taught discipline and morals while they are in the most vulnerable and impressionable times in their life.
Teachings to understand in depth to be introduced to the wisdom and love in the Bible and Gods Commandments for life. For example, why it is immoral to kill, steal, etc. etc.
In My Opinion
The most effective time to teach children Christianity is between the ages of 4-14. Once they pass this time in life, the chances they will ever come to see the light of Christianity become less and less likely to occur.
If we read why Constantine decided to change from pagan to Christian, supposedly he saw a light vision sent from God before a battle for survival of his reign and believed that is why his won the battle.
My personal opinion is he also saw the light and wised up to the fact that previous Roman Emperors who were martyring Christion’s were killing their best most lawful and productive citizens.
In my opinion, what the columnist needs to understand is the need for patience and wisdom to understand that no matter what mayor or police chief promises to control the violence, it is more difficult to convince or control a populace who have never been taught the discipline and moral teachings of the Bible of wisdom and love.
Sadly, these children never taught will be around for a generation and the rates of their recidivism rate of over 60 percent will return to violence for the rest of their lives.
In other words, if we do not change the recipe of what is being taught to youth morality, very little is going to change in the future in Chicago.
The recipe to change the violence is school choice or school vouchers to allow for poor and middle-class parents to afford to send their children to private religious schools instead of public secular schools as I explain in a previous post.
However, changing the recipe will never solve to control Chicago Violence entirely. However, it will reduce it over time, same as in history, in my opinion,
Same as it has accomplished to control and reduce violence in other Nations in the World since the beginning of human recorded history. That is if every new generation wises up and ends believing they know better how to control the world than their Creator.
Would it be wise or foolish for government to conduct a study to compare how many convicted criminals attended a public school vs. a private religious school during their ages of 4- 14??
Are the columnist’s recipes too thin on advice help the Mayor or Police Chief to control the violence?
Would changing the school recipes to thicken up the morals for youth, and end the government e Civil Rights violations of parents who cannot afford to choose to send their children to private religious schools same as the rich as explained in a previous post?
