There is a rapid increase in gun violence and other crimes worldwide. Some are asking: How to stop gun violence and other crimes? Here are some ways we can make a positive change together against gun violence and other crimes:
Help persons who have burdens to focus on the Kingdom of Heaven and following Jesus Christ.
Only play, buy, view or support video games that discourage or are free of gun violence and other crimes.
Write to individuals, organizations and governments encouraging them to take decisive action and join the fight against gun violence and other crimes.
Televise and broadcast genuine, affordable career opportunities for people.
Only view or support TV networks/media that do not obsess/glorify gun violence and other crimes in their news and other programming.
Stop breaking up families by meddling, rather, provide adequate holidays and work breaks for those who work to be able to still function properly in their homes.
Take away the subtle armors and shields placed around banks and financial authorities – Why should a bank be allowed to charge excessive interest rates which they fully well know are impractical, given the current pay structures and economic times?
Only view or support movies/books/avenues that do not obsess/glorify gun violence and other crimes.
Pay people fair wages for their services and talents – How can an employee work for $8 per hour when he or she has to create and sell 100 burgers in that same hour – where each burger meal costs approximately $8 each?
Get rid of hurt where possible.
Understand and embrace the power of the fruit of the Holy Spirit – “…love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23 KJV
Never hesitate to vote out governments and disable all organizations that participate in contract killings, gun violence and other crimes.
Vote out governments that charge excessive taxes especially when there are no jobs and scarce opportunities.
Identify and implement a cheerful atmosphere.
Only view or support TV networks/media that do not obsess/glorify the super-rich.
Look for and implement with urgency – a decrease in electricity prices and the costs of other human necessities like water, housing and transport.
Empower people by praying for them and teaching them how to pray.
Negotiate and discuss problems rather than resorting to harsh criticisms.
Create avenues for people to have good, clean, inexpensive fun.
Encourage and ensure a rapid increase in the number of people who are employed and paid adequately.
Act in your sphere of influence to promote and encourage positive change and positive actions.
Notice the positive effect of eating less meat and meat products on your emotions and encourage those around you to decrease their consumption of meat.
Discourage advertisements that use emotionalism and envy to promote commodities and stimulate a lust for frivolous and “airy-fairy” lifestyles.
Open your heart to the study of God’s Word – the Holy Bible.
Take time everyday to pray to Jesus.
Harness renewable energy sources and use them to feed and clothe the hungry, homeless, destitute and poverty-stricken.
Ensure that Justice is upheld in the courts and on the street. – Deuteronomy 16:19 (NIV) encourages us this way: “Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the innocent.”
Replace emotionalism with real love.
Cancel all unjust laws and replace them with just laws. – Isaiah 10:1-2 (NIV) states:”Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless.”
