Making Sense of a Senseless Act

When a senseless crime takes place as we saw in Los Vegas, we try to make sense out of it. Modern man, tragically, does not have the worldview that can help in times of crisis. But God has not left us without hope, and His word does give us a worldview that can inform our quest for sense.

Ephesians 2:1-3,6:12
Matthew 8:29,12:28-29
James 2:19
Mark 5:5-6
1 John 3:8,4:4
Colossians 2:14-15
Romans 16:20

Sermon discussion topics for parents to use with their children:

  • Why is modern man particularly unprepared to handle what happened in Las Vegas?

  • What about their worldview has made them this way?

  • Why is the problem much deeper than they can imagine?

  • How does the Bible's worldview address more accurately what is going on?

  • How does God offer us hope and real answers in Jesus Christ?
