Mystery Sadly Solved…We Hope

 

What’s Happening:  “The Austin serial bomber (we think) is dead. Killed by his own bomb blast (or a SWAT team bullet – the autopsy will reveal) Mark Anthony Conditt has finished his 20-day bombing rampage…we hope…there still may be bombs out there – two have been found unexploded at Fed-Ex facilities…local residents have been told to be wary, still (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/21/us/austin-bombings-suspect.html). ‘There were several leads that led us to this person,’ including surveillance video, said Austin Police Chief Manley.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “ Can they ever know for sure?”

 

Biblical Response:  “They’re pretty sure…I mean there is always the possibility of copy-cats…and they think he may have had accomplices…I guess time and the lack of further bombings will make them 99.9% sure. And the motive may never be known…it might be just one more crazy person doing it because he can. A godless culture will spawn much that is inexplicable.”

 

“Christians?  Of course we are sad for the families of the two killed and the five people that were wounded during his insanity (Rom. 12:15), and we are saddened for 23-year-old Mr. Conditt’s family (he was some mother’s child). However, some of the responsibility for the godless culture mentioned above must be laid at our feet. We should all, as Christians, live louder (Mark 16:15). The impact on the world we make is our own doing…or as the case in point so vociferously proclaims…our undoing!”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, although natural timidity may give us pause, Your supernatural boldness now dominates. Help us to allow it to take us over; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.” © Alan E.Sargent
