ORIGINALLY POSTED ON THE ISAIAH 53:5 PROJECT BY KATHY BOECHER 6-13-16
Have we become so glossed over – so apathetic – so politically correct, that we can’t see this coming? A man on the Homeland Security watch list commits mass murder in the name of ISIS and it becomes a political argument over gun control rather than considering the mind set of the killer.
I am convinced that we’ve just begun to see the effects of terrorism in our country. We were made boldly aware of the danger way back on 9/11. Blood was shed there and on the battlefield fighting it. Now our passive leaders have let it go in the name of mental illness, stronger laws on the sale of guns, LGBT rights and anything but the truth of the nature of this beast.
We’re afraid to call it what it is. Extreme Islamic terrorism is a fact that’s being swept under the rug. I’m afraid that there are cells all over our nation just waiting for the right moment to act. If something isn’t done to address this evil, we are doomed as a nation.
I am confident in God’s plan for our lives as His followers, but there is a great evil lurking out there and we are trying to cover it up with platitudes and unfounded assertations. It’s time for us to be watchful. The enemy is seeking to destroy us.
