Personally, I think this love of violence is a major sin in our culture. It's so much a part of the texture of our society that we don't even see it. We talk about morality, sexual sins, maybe, if we're really daring, we'll talk about greed and materialism. And some—perish the thought!—might even talk about the sin of nationalism. But, no one talks about our obsession with violence.
Perhaps because it is so much a part of our culture we don't see it?
Lord! Open our eyes that we might see true peace and cooperate with you in bringing it to pass!
