It's hard to know what to do in response to the recent mass shootings in New Zealand. Our human nature wants revenge and to hate, but love is the only antidote to hate.
If you get bitten by a poisonous snake, the only thing that will save you is the antivenom. The only antivenom for this kind of hate is the love of God. We can't begin to understand what motivates people to carry out these evil acts. All we know is John 10:10, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." Romans 12:21 says, "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good," and 1 Peter 4:8 says, "Most important of all, you must sincerely love each other, because love wipes away many sins."
