Christians response to Terror!?

I realize that I should only be starting a… dialogue… ( that is in our current culture… talking without debating… for fear of offending someone)… I’m totally against this… if you are offended you probably are selfish and need to get out of your bubble… without debate we don’t find any answers…

So we have to ask the question…” how should a Christian respond to Terror”?… this is a difficult and challenging question… God seems to be putting Muslim people directly in front of me… I find them mostly engaging and willing to listen… and when we speak and I mention….Sharia Law… and radical views concerning the caliphate… most of them are somewhat with surprise that I even mention these things and have knowledge about it… they don’t believe the average American has knowledge of such things and we have usually a decent conversation…

So… let’s proceed… I think that terror is the typical human response to a situation in which sudden pain or death is the likely outcome in a Circumstance the  individual cannot control… Paul had faced such circumstances and he knew that Christians throughout the ages would continue to face Danger…

Generally speaking can we say… the state and the bad guys… own most of the guns… Christian’s own What God Says is truth… there has to be a standard…

Conflict is inevitable since we are basically in a struggle…( not unlike a typical Harry Potter plot)… though far more ancient… and now modern… and more complicated because the issue is life and death… or I should say the spirit of lawlessness and sin and death and the spirit of life…

So look at it as an old western Showdown… between truth and Terror… though hard to do… sometimes almost impossible to do… I think Christians are called to exhibit a faith that remains calm under conditions ..meant to desperately excite basic survival instincts…

The wonderful promise of the Gospel… is life with Christ… can we bring ourselves to see that Faith Under Fire… can be a witness more profound than a thousand sermons… these terrorist trigger men who inflict the fatal wound are the ones that die without truth… the only real terror…

The real root cause… or Baseline problem is that a lot of the world has no respect for life… the spirit of lawlessness… which is the spirit of antichrist is upon us… the ancient mainly Middle Eastern art of stone-throwing still kills and draws blood… almost as effectively as a drawn gun… the only sword that you can bring to a fight… should be the word of God…
