Virginia Tech

Why is it that any time a tragedy happens in this country, the media are so quick to blame everyone except the one responsible? It never fails.

As my wife and I watched the news about Virginia Tech this past week, there was almost non-stop discussion about the "warning signs" and how the police could have prevented more killings by shuting down the campus - and so forth. Seriously, why do we look to blame everyone but the person actually responsible?

Yes, the Virginia Tech shootings were a tragedy... but THE SOLE cause was a duranged college student... not the faculty that should have caught the warning signs, not the police, not anybody except him.

Warning signs are just warning signs... they are not 100% indicators of anything. There are hundreds of students across the nation that probably act in a similar way to how the VA Tech killer acted... quiet. reserved. inner conflict. anti-social. Just because someone possesses warning signs does not mean he or she will do something crazy. And if they do in fact carry out some tragic event, it is not the fault of the ones that "should have caught it sooner."

There are always things that could have been done differently - things that could have prevent any given tragic event. But the thing is that hindsight is always perfect. We can analyze all the events and determine what may have helped the situation, but lets stop pointing fingers at the faculty and the police and recognize that the shootings at Virginia Tech were the climax of how a duranged college student wanted to be remembered. It is just sad.

Part 2: Christians, What Do You Think?

Thanks for everyone's responses on the last post...

Ok. So, continuing on with this hypothetical situation,

1. What if they guy that decided to never become a Christian actually would have become a Christian later in life if he was not "bothered" by the door-to-door evangelism? And what if the person that DID become a Christian as a result of you would have anyways later in life as well? Is it worth it?

2. Also, Is it worth it if you pushed 50 people to decide never become a Christian (who would have otherwise) just for 1 person to become a Christian right then?


Ok, and I know that this might open up a whole discusion on predesitination. That is not what this is about... whether we have free will or God has predestined everything is beside the point in relation to these questions - at least for this discussion.

What are your thoughts?
