A football coach. An athletic director. And young, eager and forward-looking students were killed in the deadly school massacre in Parkland, Florida.

Chaplains from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) arrived in Parkland, Florida, within hours of Wednesday’s school shooting that killed at least 17 teens and faculty members.

In recent weeks, this act of terror has served as a catalyst for an army of activists across America to advocate for social change. This includes cries for more government intervention and increased gun laws, however, that surely can not be the answer?

is the gun, it’s the person behind the gun and it’s about helping before they ever reach that point,’ said a mother whose died at Sandy Hook elementary

While the rest of the country seems to be focusing on earthly weapons and assault rifles, Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson is redirecting attention to the only weapon he truly believes in capable of stopping murder: the Word of the God.

My heart is heavy over the school shooting in Florida. Keeping all affected in my thoughts & prayers.

God doesn’t want your thoughts and prayers. God wants you to know that you are responsible to for and protect other people. And to take action to do so. https://t.co/T8IL8uKBwm

is an American professional hunter, businessman, and reality television star on the popular television series Duck Dynasty. He is also featured on the television show Buck Commander, a hunting program on the Outdoor Channel.


Robertson says that without , these horrific acts continue to occur on the earth.  “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” ( 4:12)

At times of tragedy, Christian and ministries rally to remind survivors of a God who the Psalms tell us “heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

“There are two characteristics of mass murderers: no Jesus, and the work of Satan.”  “Satan is the problem.”  “The wrath of the one is falling upon us,” Robertson adds.

Phil Robertson’s  one-minute message may be brief, but like the sword of the spirit, it’s sharp and powerful. Since it was posted on Wednesday, Phil’s video has been watched over 16 million times.

    Phil’s comment is true. I actually have said similar in my Facebook posts. God tells us that His word does not return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11). The word of God IS a weapon, it IS powerful, and it IS the weapon we need to focus on. If you create more gun laws or stricter gun laws people are going to continue to break them. Guns won’t solve ANYTHING. But, God, God will. Our faith, our trust, our hope, our priority needs to be on God and His kingdom, on living the Bible and not just reading it or quoting it.
