A Christian Response: On Sunday morning, American citizens were gunned down by a demon possessed radical Islamist terrorist. The terrorist was Omar Mateen, the son of a Muslim immigrant from Afghanistan. His target was a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. (Islam teaches that homosexuality is to be punished by death.) This was the worst terrorist attack on our country since 9/11.
Our prayers go out to the family members that are grieving and those in the hospital recovering from their injuries. We pray for the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to minister to them in their hour of need. This is a time when every Christian should show forth the love of God with heartfelt prayers. No matter how you feel about the sin of homosexuality, these were fellow Americans cut down by a madman.
Radical Islam promotes hate for women, gays, Jews, Christians and all Americans. And, they are willing to kill to advance their demonic religious ideology. Look how many people just one man can kill and injure. (Mateen killed 50 and wounded 53 others.) Church, America, it’s time to armor up. This means both naturally (Constitutional carry) and spiritually. You have the God given right and Constitutional right to protect yourselves and family from murderers if you so choose. The FBI cannot protect you, Homeland Security cannot protect you, and Law Enforcement cannot protect you. We must protect ourselves and each other. Radical Islam has declared war on us and we can’t ignore it, we won’t ignore it.
“Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).
