Researchers are looking…

for a genetic cause relating to the recent school shooting in Connecticut. They will examine the DNA of the gunman to see if there is any abnormality. Who knows if they find some sort of illness or psychological problem related to a genetic cause? Yet, in the end, the problem is deeper than just a gene or two out of place. We understand, as Christians, that there is a primal mortality at work in us, a twisting and distortion of who we were meant to be beyond our genetics. It would be good to explore the deepest parts of our physicality to see if there is the potential to heal what is broken. Yet the basic human abnormality will always be beyond the care of science.
