Blaming Satan


Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, has stated that Satan was behind last week's murders in Newtown, Connecticut. 

Tragic events like the mass murder of schoolchildren certainly have an evil aura, and it isn't out of line to label the killer's actions as evil, in my opinion.
But to attribute the killer's actions directly to Satan, as Wildmon has done, is problematic. First of all, it's entirely possible that Adam Lanza had an emotional or mental disorder that interfered with his ability to feel empathy for others, manage his emotions, or control his impulses. The notion that mental illness is caused by demonic infestation or Satanic influence, promoted by Alex Jones and others, is positively Medieval and has no place in an informed, educated society like our own. It will not benefit the mentally ill, their caregivers, mental health professionals, or family members to fob the blame off on the Devil. If Lanza was not mentally ill, then he was fully responsible for his crimes, and no one else (including Satan) deserves even a shred of the blame for what he chose to do.

I am afraid that there are too many people (even in Churches) who fail to understand that historic Christian theology is a wee bit more sophisticated than "blame the devil for everything." No, evil people are fully to blame for their own actions, and bringing the devil up at all is usually unhelpful. I say that as a pastor.

The Anti-Christ (Satan, Lucifer, etc.) Is going to be here SOON!!
The Devil DOES work through people - (Just as God does),and it is ENTIRELY possible that he had influence on Adam -- Especially if he was a non-believer of God or Jesus Christ. Believing in God, Jesus, or the Devil is NOT Medieval - It is completely relevent today!!
CHRISTianity is NOT a religion IT IS A REALITY!!!
