The Heart of Murderers

In view of the tragedy that took place yesterday at Virginia Tech. in Blackburg, VA, as 33 were shot and killed (including the murderer, who took his own life after slaughtering 32 people, including his girlfriend), the Desiring God Blog says the following, posted today:

While others are already making the Virginia Tech massacre a political issue and looking vehemently for someone to blame, let us remember that “the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick” (Jeremiah 17:9).

Our hearts and the murderer’s.

No x-ray machines, revised gun laws, or fired college presidents will solve the problem. We need new hearts (Ezekiel 11:19, John 3:3). We need Jesus.

And to that, I give a hearty 'amen.'
