Dear Ones in Christ,
We at Chick Publications are praying for the families who have suffered loss of life in the great tragedy that has effected our land. Our lives, our country, and our world will never be the same. In the midst of these perilous times, we as Christians must be stedfast in our purpose to go into all the world and preach the gospel (Mark 16:15).
But here is a word of caution....politicians are trying to hold this whole mess together by creating some kind of all encompassing, universal "god", composed of all kinds of "gods", that doesn't offend anybody including the Muslim god "Allah". The Bible says there is only one true God, who did have a Son, and that Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, is the answer for the needs of every human being. Our God is a jealous God and will share His glory with no other.
Let's be about our Father's business and pray for our President, our leaders, our military, our families, our friends, and yes, even our enemies.
Beloved, examine the "god" of the terrorists, his name is "Allah". We must be active in the work that Jesus has called us to do, and that is presenting Jesus to a world that otherwise has no hope.
Your brother in Christ
