Man’s inhumanity to man was on full display outside a grocery store in Buffalo when a gunman opened fire and killed 10 people. The innocent bystanders were targeted simply because of their skin color. There will be calls for more gun control. And Congress is talking about domestic terrorism legislation. But ultimately, laws cannot change hearts. It doesn’t mean that government shouldn’t work to protect and maintain public safety. They should. But when it comes to addressing inward evil, the government is helpless. That’s because the only solution to evil is God. God is in the business of changing hearts and minds, including the heart of the hate-filled gunman. May he comfort those who are grieving and begin to change hearts filled with racism and bent on evil before they hurt others.
