The Present Danger & The Victory

A terrorist is a person who has willingly been misled into a belief system that is inimical to life and liberty. He or she has embraced a diabolical ideology that foments terrible violence, destruction, and elimination of human life.

We, as a nation, Americans, as a people, have always held the beliefs that life and liberty are sacred. Our ideology is one of compassion, construction, and respect for all life.

Unfortunately, there is a war going on. It is a war for the hearts and minds of human beings. It is being waged worldwide, and all the actors are not flesh and blood. There are, of course, people involved, but there are also principalities and powers who are stronger than we. There are ideals not easily banished from susceptible humanity.

To win this war it will take the sacrifice of precious lives in combat, of lives that are taken without just cause, lives we can ill afford to lose. If we win, if we overcome this present evil, we will also have to submit ourselves to the love and power of Almighty God. Christ is the One, who will ultimately win this war. It has always been waged throughout all history. We will triumph in the Lord! Heed the call! Jesus is Coming! Everybody Get Ready, The King Is Coming!

    “We, as a nation, Americans, as a people, have always held the beliefs that life and liberty are sacred. Our ideology is one of compassion, construction, and respect for all life.”

    Not trying to be a complete d*ck here, but Americans’ are HIGHLY selective of who receives “life and liberty”, who we show “compassion, construction, and respect for all life” to.
    America was (and in some cases, still is) a brutal nation built on violence and white-supremacy. Look at how minorities are treated STILL within our nation.
    We have a long ways to go…

      You are not a dick! Your opinion is precious to me. I think you know I did not intend to be insensitive to the ongoing problems in our nation. I know we as people are not perfect and have a long way to go. However, I do believe the majority of us are more supportive of life and liberty than terrorists who are fanatical extremists.

      Thank you for taking the time to read my musings and leaving a comment. You are dear to me, Walks. I did in no way mean to offend you and I did not intend to seem a narrow-minded bigot. My apologies if I came across in a unloving manner.

      My comment was in response to JoAnn’s truthful & well-stated article as posted above ~ NOT to the hatred & racism portrayed in the 1st comment.
