View Full Version : I'm really hurting....

I just don't get it.. and I honestly don't know that I want to.

I am extremely depressed.. I am physically in pain.. and apparently I am not covering it well..

Crazy doesn't explain it. On drugs doesn't explain it.

I can't really get it out of my head. and it's honestly tearing me up.

I NEVER wanted kids.. I never LIKED kids...I got married... and when my wife told me she was "knocked up" I was scared, nervous and confused...

but when I held my son for the first time..everything changed.. I love my kids.. and would do ANYTHING for them...and I go WAY out of my way for kids in my dojo.. and in general... I am not blind.. my kids and all kids..are flawed.. but they try... my are not spoiled.. but they do have many things...

I just don't understand how anyone can hurt a child.. it makes no sense to me..

A guy beheaded his 5 year old sister today/yesterday.. in front of the police.. cut her head OFF...and I don't understand.... I can't..

Shooting.. and so many other ways to kill.. while I don't understand.. this just seems so much more evil. I can almost hear the screams in my head..

I am 100% for "eye for an eye".. but the suffering the child must have went through is really hurting ..

I can't forgive... I don't know how.. kids are what we are about.. to leave the world in better hands than we received it..

I know how I am thought of at work..
A-Hole.. no compassion... a jerk... and those are good days...perfectionist..


In the dojo.. I am a perfectionist...

With my family.. I have very specific rules.. and when they are knowingly broken.. there is punishment.. but even then.. my kids know how much they are loved...and the few times that I have had to actually spank my kids.. I HATED it...

I just don't see how someone could really harm a child...
5 freaking years old.. there isn't anything that they can do to deserve to die.. and in that way.. makes me question everything...

How old was the guy who did this? His sister is only 5 years old, so I'm assuming he's pretty young himself. :sad:

i gave up trying to understand things like this a long time ago.

here's the full story

"Kerby Revelus stabbed his 17-year-old sister, Samantha, to death with a kitchen (http://www.associatedcontent.com/theme/1411/kitchen_design_and_remodeling_.html) knife and had stabbed his 9-year-old sister, Sarafina, in the stomach and leg. Fortunately, she was able to make a 911 call that would save her life. An officer patrolling the neighborhood was there immediately and busted through the door when no one answered or was unable to let him in. But as he entered the door, the officer saw Revelus behead his 5-year-old sister, Bianca, who was celebrating her fifth birthday.

As Kerby Revelus left his beheaded sister to attack Sarafina, more policemen arrived at the house. Two officers opened fire on Revelus, killing him, the knife still in his hand."

Here is another one! What is this world coming to! This is just an hour from me.



Connolly brothers and father's bodies found in rural Putnam Co.




A press conference was held in Bloomington regarding the deaths of Jack and Duncan Connolly.

The McLean County Sheriff's office says the remains of 7 year old Jack Connolly and 9 year old Duncan Connolly were found in a remote area of Putnam County after a call about a suspicious vehicle. A body was also found matching their father, Michael Connolly, about 60 feet from the vehicle.

The boys were reported missing March 8th from LeRoy after their father allegedly did not return them to their mother after a custody visit.

The Amber alert for the brothers is canceled. Autopsies were performed this afternoon, and more details were released at the press conference.

The family of the victims has asked for privacy during this tough time.

The world has been full of evil for a very long time. In fact, the Bible tells us that human beings are literally incapable of good. Ultimately, evil, immorality and injustice always prevail over all other human accomplishments and the helpless are always the first to suffer.

Satan, like Feminists, hates children. Thus, they have always been a target of evil, from modern day abortions to burning children alive as a sacrifice to false gods in biblical times.

As horrible as this is, it's not a new development in human history and it won't stop as long as humans continue to ignore GOD.

Well put Nathan...I can't fathom what those children had to endure..:sad: This absolutely sickens me. As far as the feminist comment I really never paid attention, but it makes sense with all these abortion rights and this and that non-sense. I am starting to open my eyes more to whats human vs what our rights are.:mellow:

Explain..........

All people are capable of every kind of evil. Bad things don't happen to good people because, simply put, good people don't exist. Only GOD is good.

Oh I completely understand and agree with that... I was just wondering if that was what Andreas meant. :wink:

...and our desire to please God is what prevents us from doing evil?

it's because we are human.......in a nutshell. i'm not going to get into semantics or else we'll be here all day. we are all human and it's inside all of us. it just comes out in some but not in others....at least not yet. this isn't even really that bad compared to what others have done.

...and our desire to please God is what prevents us from doing evil?

That and other factors like fear of the consequences (which is why the death penalty is so effective in dropping the crime rate).

Also, according to GOD, there are no degrees of sin. So a man who looks at internet pornography is just as guilty of adultery as man who actually cheats on his wife. A man who holds a grudge against another person is just as guilty as a murderer.

That's why we aren't able to work our way to salvation, because it would be impossible. All of the good deeds that we perform in this life are like filthy rags to GOD. Think of a rag that's been soaking in feces and imagine how repellant just the thought of that is. Well, that's what our lives are like to GOD when we try to work our way to Heaven under our own good works.

The good news about that is there is nothing bad enough you can do to be undeserving of salvation, because we can't be any more unworthy than we are now.

GOD loves everyone equally, despite our sin. So that means that GOD loves this man who beheaded his 5-year old sister just as much as He loves that 5-year old sister.

It's one of the hardest truths about Christianity.

Here's a quick quiz:
Did GOD love Adolf Hitler?
Did GOD love the Jews that were exterminated by the Nazis?
Does GOD love children who are the victims of child molestation?
Does GOD love the child molesters?
Does GOD love homosexuals?
Does GOD love the fundamentalist Christian who speaks out against homosexuality?
Does GOD love the white-supremacist who tortures and murders a black child?
Does GOD love the prostitute who allows men to have sex with her 2-year old daughter for money?
Does GOD love the Muslim extremist who flies a plane into a skyscraper, killing thousands?

If you believe that the answer to any of those questions should be "no," then you MUST also believe that Christianity is a lie and that the Bible is false. It's that simple.
