Last week’s news noted the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, polls showing that millennials prefer communism to capitalism, and calls for stricter gun control laws in light of the Sutherland Springs massacre.

While laws must curb evil, we must not fall into the trap of believing our problem is external to us—in the one case capitalism and free markets and in the other, the availability of guns.
Perhaps someday we will tire of government solutions that don’t work and consider the real nature of our problem—our rebellion against God and the rejection of His law—and look to Him for His solution.
