ALR034 – How to Teach Kids About Evil

With the advent of the 24-hour news cycle and social media, our kids are exposed to news about mankind's horrific acts of evil more often than ever. From ISIS to cop killings in Dallas, to home-grown acts of terror like Orlando or 9/11, or school shootings like Newtown. We can't totally shelter our kids from this information, so how do we explain these terrible acts of evil to our children? Pastor Evan Goeglein of Faith Lutheran Church in Rogue River, Oregon joins us again to discuss the subject.

The Root of the Problem
Chicago tied a record for shootings and murder that stood for 20 years. The police commissioner there says “Enough is Enough,” and I could not agree more. But at the root of the problem is not guns. It's not poverty. It's not racism. It's sin. And until we find a way to deal with that, there's no stopping it completely.
