I am not as afraid of radical Islam as I am
of nonradical Christianity.
If I had not felt certain that every additional trial was ordered by infinite love and mercy, I could not have survived my accumulated sufferings.
Ido not believe any honest reading of the teachings of Jesus can suggest He was in favor of war and violence…ever. But many years ago the king of that country would lead the warriors into battle and risk his own life. Today leaders sit in air conditioned offices and eat the finest foods served by servants and take lavish vacations and read the daily casualty reports. And after thousands of men and women have died, these leaders retire to a wonderful life of retirement. It is absurd but it is the norm.
Phil.3: 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
