When there was only a few people on Earth, there was a murderer (Cain) and the invention of gunpowder was hundreds of years away.

Take away the guns and powder, and you're back to the original problem — man's heart. But the Gospel is the power of God that brings salvation to change an evil heart.

Oh, how about all the babies killed last week? No gunpowder used there either.

Good thing Cain didn't have a gun that could take out numerous lives in a matter of minutes, or we all might not be here.


Even without the firepower of today, there were many instances of mass deaths in the good book You might try reading it
