Why did the Vegas shooter do it? Everyone is postulating their ideas, but no one, not anyone, not even Rush Limbaugh has mentioned the real reason that Stephen Paddock shot 515 people, killing 58, and then killed himself.
I’m going to tell you why he did it. His brother alluded to it when he stated that his brother had no religious affiliation. Stephen Paddock did not know that after he killed himself that evil spirits would drag him down to hell where he would suffer torment for all of eternity. From there he will have no escape, not ever. He will have no hope. Nothing but eternal darkness, torment, pain and horror for all of eternity. All the pain and suffering he wrought upon those hundreds of families will be heaped upon him many fold as he anguishes in flames forever.
This is the reality that Jesus Christ, the apostles, and the Christian Church affirm. It is what the Bible says. Revelation 21:8: “The unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
Paddock was not afraid to kill others and kill himself because he didn’t believe in heaven and hell. He had been brainwashed with the lie of evolution. He believed we came from some kind of monkey, that there was no God, no judgment, no accountability. Consequently, what he did or didn’t do, didn’t really matter. Nothing mattered. He believed the lies of Satan and now he suffers the consequences.
No one who knows the truth of accountability to our Creator would do what he did. When I went to grade school everyone believed in heaven and hell. From first grade to fifth grade I remember hearing my teachers at school speak of it. Sadly, in today’s world, God has been run out of our schools and His truth replaced with lies.
The liberal god-hating Democrats have gotten control of our courts, our schools and our news media and ruled God right out of public life. We have a whole crop of young people grown up into adults and most of them don’t know there is coming a judgment and accounting for each of them when they die.
The liberals are already foaming at the mouth with eagerness to use this as an excuse to take guns away from law abiding citizens. Never mind that the fully automatic weapons he used were already illegal. Never mind that its the liberal scripture-denying mindset that caused this in the first place, not the guns. Never mind the truth. Logic isn’t in their play book.
They simply want our guns for the same reason they want all our tax money. They want total absolute control. They want to find something to blame for this horror. But they refuse to acknowledge the real reason this happened. They can’t acknowledge it because to do so would mean acknowledging God, and that they will never do. The truth is, this happened because these same liberals that want our guns have already taken the truth of God’s word from our culture. That is the real problem in our society. “The fool hath said in his heart, ‘there is no God.'” (Psalms 14:1)
Until we take back our schools, our children, and our nation for God and get biblical truth once again ingrained into the fabric of our nation, until then, we will see more and more atrocities like this. Liberals don’t want to hear it, but let’s proclaim it anyway:
“It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” – Hebrews 9:27
