Christian Post Opinion
Long before Adam Lanza appeared on the scene, the first Adam was causing even greater damage. God gave Adam and Eve free will when He created them. That was God’s choice. It was not God’s choice for the first Adam to sin. Eve’s husband made that decision all on his own, with some encouragement from his wife and from Satan who appeared as a serpent in the Garden of Eden. “Sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin.” (Romans 5:12) The sin of the original Adam opened the floodgates to all manner of evil upon the earth.
The first Adam helped to produce Adam Lanza, who for reasons unknown to us went on a rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Satan had a hand in the worst decisions these “Adam’s” ever made. Satan tempted the first Adam….and Satan was lurking in the shadows around Adam Lanza as well. How else could you explain something as horrific as the Sandy Hook killings?
Everyone is a sinner….but some people get extra prodding from the evil one. Mark David Chapman killed John Lennon on a December day 32 years ago. Chapman claimed to hear a voice in his head telling him to “do it, do it, do it.” Satan whispers to anyone who will listen to him.
We will never know what voices Adam Lanza heard in his head….or what they were telling him. But whatever was going on at the time, Adam made the decision….and acted on his wicked intentions….and decided to do it, do it, do it. That degree of cold-blooded viciousness must in some way be connected to the influence of Satan.
