A QUESTION TO BE ANSWERED!
First we are reminded that we live in a time of war unlike any other we have ever seen in this country. We are in a war with true ideologists who will stop at nothing less than our total destruction. They are driven by their misguided faith that they are to conquer and subdue the world in the name of Islam. They view death in this cause as an honor and something to be sought. If we do not understand this, particularly as we vote in both 2006 and 2008 we will be in circumstances that would have been unthinkable not long ago.
Second we are reminded that these have been the kind of questions that believers in Christ have historically given their lives for as they answered biblically. If the Word of God is true then there is no salvation outside of Christ and you cannot worship and love God apart from Christ. If we speak the truth of Gods Word it could cost us our freedom, or as it has for so many others, our lives. This has been the norm of the Church for the totality of its history, we in this country are just beginning to realize some of what that is like. So if you were in that dark room in the Middle East, and asked that same question by your captors, how would you have answered? Would it have been the answer to get you home to your family, or the answer that would get you home to your heavenly Father?
