Terror in Florida

June 13, 2016
Terror in Florida
On June 12, 2016, a 29-year-old man entered the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and began shooting randomly at the unsuspecting patrons inside. After taking many of them hostage and engaging police in gunfire, the gunman was finally killed. In all, 49 people were murdered and 53 were injured in what many are calling a terrorist attack.

It is the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history and the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001.

Amazing Facts is shocked and saddened by this brutal act of violence and offers our condolences to the grief-stricken families of the victims. The appalling violence of this evil attack grieves the heart of God, was perpetrated by the devil, and is a sobering indicator of the deterioration of our planet.

Let us remember that the father of hatred and murder is not God. Rather, in giving His Son to die for us, we see God's infinite compassion and grace—through a Savior who was willing to die so that we might live eternally.

In the aftermath of this tragedy, it can be difficult to believe that there is a Father in heaven who mourns with us. But the Lord is not silent. He is not apathetically sitting back—instead, He is working to save all who desire to live in His kingdom of peace. We can be certain there will be a judgment day and an end to violence and death. “He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces” (Isaiah 25:8).

Are you asking, "Why does God allow evil?" Our Study Guide, entitled Did God Create the Devil?, will help you better understand our loving God, this tragic event, and how we can be sure evil like this will someday end. Please share it with as many as you can.
