'Numerous Fatalities' in Shooting at Douglas High School in Parkland
A suspect is in custody after a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left at least one person dead and at least 20 injured Wednesday afternoon, sources told NBC News.

Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said there were "numerous fatalities" but the exact number was unknown. At least 14 victims have been taken to local hospitals, the Broward County twitter account said, and the scene is still active.

An official briefed on the investigation identified the suspect as Nicolas Cruz, who is approximately 18 years old. He was also taken to a nearby hospital, and police escorted him out of the hospital about an hour later. The extent of the suspect's injury is unclear. ...

Using what we have today to spread the Truth is in the Bible.
However, we do not see, "Go ye into all the world and teach a Sunday school class".
I don't believe it is a sinful, harmful, thing, please don't get me wrong.

What I'm trying to say that it isn't necessary.

Thanks for your response.

Teaching is covered in II Timothy 2:2 and Isaiah 28:10. Sunday School is simply the teaching of Scripture, surely you see that in the Bible. It is also a tool for evangelism so that would make it covered in the verse you cited.

Brother books aren't "necessary" for teaching and learning but they are a valuable aid. Cars aren't necessary to get around but few people walk everywhere. Washers aren't necessary to clean clothes but we all use them.

Most churches have central air conditioning, restrooms, sound systems, lighting, and places to sit, they aren't necessary (or found in the Bible)to have a service, but we find them useful tools in the work of the ministry.

🔴It was, on the other hand, used by D. L. Moody in Chicago to reach children for Christ; but it was PRIMARILY a school class on Sunday to give them an education, which they probably wouldn't get cause of their poor condition.🔴

Addressing what others have said, most churches have Sunday School apart from their morning worship service so it is not a means to separate the family worship time together.

We understand that different ages learn things differently in schools but God forbid we should use that understanding in teaching about spiritual matters?

I am going to say abuses are the exception to the rule. In most Bibically sound churches your Sunday School teacher is a godly individual with a burden for those entrusted to their care. They pray for their students and over their lessons and try to make sure what they teach is sound doctrine.

Learning is to be line upon line, precept upon precept, Sunday School gives the opportunity to have it done age specifically.

Disclaimers
I don't teach a Sunday School class, and I don't believe that Sunday School should be used as a replacement for daily Biblical teaching in the home

Hey Watcher, hope you're doing good. I read an article just this morning on what you commented on. He and his brother were adopted as infants, I believe, but had a good life and home. The father passed, and the mother filled the role for both, always keeping them busy with fun things and activities, and never wanted for anything, etc. Apparently, the adoptive mother died last year, I believe. Both of the boys did have behavioral problems, and the shooter was in therapy for some time, but hadn't gone in a while. Shortly before the shooting, like the day before or something, he had a fight with his new girlfriends ex, so who know what made him snap, or maybe it was a lot of things together. I'm sure you know that he made a comment on a YouTube channel just last year saying that he was going to be a "professional school shooter". The FBI took the information, but couldn't track down who actually made the comment at the time. Not sure how they know now all of a sudden.
He seemed to be a run away train headed for disaster. Another sad victim of a society that doesn't care. Yeah, read a bunch on his upbringing as well.

Doing good brother. Have a blessed evening.

I don't know how any parent deals with the loss of a child, especially in such a tragic way.

Look at his upbringing. He wasn't wanted or loved. Perhaps he was even stolen away from his parents by corrupts social services. He had a grudge and it seemed he was on the path from an early age to do something like this. Yes, it is his fault, but children are all a product of their environment. Everyone of us grows up according to our home environments. Kids today are all (for the most part) ticking time-bombs. They seem to be on edge, angry and empty. It's a recipe for disaster for sure.

My heart goes out to the parents. Hopefully this spurns others on to bring their kids home and homeschool them.

One church I went to when I was a youngster had a Sunday School teacher and bus driver convicted of sexual assault on numerous children. He had invited a couple of dozen children over to his house for a "sleep-over", games, ice-cream, etc. I was there that night, but both of my parents were impressed to go get me and bring me home. He protested, I screamed and fussed, but thank God I was. He molested a bunch of the kids that night. Sickening! Just because it's called Christian, doesn't mean we can trust it.

@My Own 2 cents, yes unfortunately. It's quickly getting to the point where my wife and I are talking about relocating to another country. It's getting bad here.

Oh, and when a youth ministry boasts about being Fun, this immediately proves they're on the wrong path.

If you live in United States, get a concealed carry permit and purchase a compact handgun.
You won't regret carrying if some creep tries anything to harm your kids. 😕
There's where the States are better to live in than Canada. EVERYTHING'S against the law up here. You can't even criticize a Muslim without it being a criminal offense. Who'd ever think that Canada would become a communist country?

Watcher,
I agree with you 100%. There should be no separation between children and their parents in church. This is where they learn to be still, reverence God, and listen to him. The cosmos has already put too many wedges between parents and children.
My point was that murders are occurring in churches as well. Now if someone is after children only then any place where they gather is subject to having their life aborted.
The only safe place for any of us is in Christ. We know not the hour, the day, or the circumstances we are called into judgment. Being hid in the cleft of the Rock is the safest place.
Yep. Totally agree. The enemy wants our children as he knows they are the future. It doesn't matter where we are, church, a store, a park...wherever, my wife and I are on constant alert to dangers for them. The enemy is an opportunist and he will take his shot when we let our guards down.
