Why Did GOD Allow Twenty Children To Be Killed?

You may have watched the carnage Friday 12/13/12 and your heart was probably broken. You then may have asked: “Why would God allow something like this to happen”? News broadcasters were reporting all this young man had done and wondered how a human could do such a thing, killing 20 children and six adults. You may have thought how evil does someone have to be to commit such a heinous crime.

Is he a product of his community or our country? Has television, movies and war games influenced our younger generation? Has leaving the Bible out of classrooms developed a generation of youth that do not know the difference between right and wrong or what’s moral or immoral?

The news said he was well prepared, equipped and well-organized to do what he did. Then you may have thought: how about the abortion clinics around our country? They kill helpless children every 18 second in a 24 hour day and have for years. These abortion clinics kill as many in eight minutes as he did and then wonder what is wrong with him, the Connecticut killer.

Study our country’s history. The Bible was once taught in every classroom in America and some Scripture was required to be memorized. They prayed, pledged the alliance to the flag and the Ten Commandments were hanging on the walls. Today we are told that saying Christmas is not politically correct. What about the nativity scenes that used to be in most every city? In the front of law books it stated that no law was to be enacted that was contrary to the Bible. This is what they taught at Harvard Law School many years ago.

No one has the right to take another’s life. Why is so much of this random shooting of innocent people becoming an often occurrence? The only way to stop this, according to some progressives is to get rid of hand guns, knives, screwdrivers, ice picks, antifreeze and everything else that people use to kill others. That would leave them only with their hands or rope. But is that really the answer?

We have a God problem! The problem is we started in the early 1960’s leaving God out of the lives of young adults and children through our educational system. We have had political leaders that were anti christ and anti God. They are not only unhappy with our political system they had uncontrollable lusts that morality was making them feel guilty.

So why didn’t God intervene this past week and stop this carnage from occurring? Read the Old Testament. The prophets repeatedly stated that if the people turned from God He would not protect them.

Jeremiah 16:10 – 12 – “When you tell the people all these things, they will ask, ‘Why has the Lord decreed such terrible things against us? What have we done to deserve such treatment? What is our sin against the Lord our God?’ ‘Then you will give them the Lord’s reply: ‘It is because your ancestors were unfaithful to me. They worshiped other gods and served them. They abandoned me and did not obey my word. And you are even worse than your ancestors! You stubbornly follow your own evil desires and refuse to listen to me.” NLT

Jeremiah 17:10 – “But I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.” NLT

Why did God allow Sodom and Gomorrah to be destroyed? Why did God allow the Israelites to be killed, plundered and taken into captivity?

I John 5:18 – 19 – We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.”

As we come closer to the end-times it will only get worse. We are told there will be a time worse than anytime that has ever occurred before. With all of the sin in the world, people have allowed the evil one to influence their decisions and look what has happened. This is the kind of life the world has chosen. Read and study the Old Testament and see what happened when people started worshipping other Gods or demons. Christ said that He would be the gate that would protect His people. Scripture also indicates that gate could swing open and all sorts of problems would result. There would be no protection for a sinful world.

The world is getting exactly what prophecy foretells. You live a sinful life and consequences will happen. You will cry out: “Why God did you allow this to happen”? If you want to know the answer, read your Bible. When we are God’s people He takes care of us, He protects and makes us prosper. When we deny Him, He allows the demons to have more and more control over people’s lives, their behavior and their actions. We should be prepared for more disasters to come. Because there is no indication the world is turning back to God and living by His Ways.

Are you still wondering why God allowed this to happen or other disasters to occur? The answer is found in the Bible. Unless you have the Holy Spirit you may not be inspired to find the answer. But it is there! Stop denying that Christ is the Son of God and accept Him as your Savior and you will see the world from a completely different perspective. Sin is all around us and we are allowing the evil one to take over more control. God may be opening the curtain so we can see what Hell is really like.


Our hearts and prayers go out to the families who have lost their precious loved ones.

    I totally agree with this. God is not mocked whatever a man sows, he will reap. They allowed pray and the word of God to be taken out of the schools, and now the enemy comes in and does his evil and people blame God.The lack of knowledge of the word of God Which is a lamp to our feet, and a light to our path is missing in the hearts and minds of so many. Jesus did all that He could so that we could be blessed and protected. The choice is ours to believe or not to believe. He overcame the world, the flesh, and the devil. Without faith we cannot please Him. We need to trust and rely on Him in all our ways and he will direct our paths. That is a habit to be developed. To acknowledge Him in all our ways. We need the Holy Spirit to fill us, we need the Holy spirit to strengthen us, we need the Holy Spirit to guide us, and we need to obey His Promptings. Thank you for your comment. Nothing can replace the loss of life and bring comfort to the family’s who are grieving for the loss, but to think of them in heaven with the Lord and being comforted by Jesus himself. The Holy Spirit is the only one in the bible who is called the comforter. May He bring comfort to the family’s of these dear children who were robbed of life so early.
