It goes without saying that we all must redouble our efforts to win Saeed’s freedom before he meets a similar fate.
My question this morning is about how we react to Foley’s murder in particular and radical Islam in general..
When I read of it the reaction of my gut and soul was pure rage toward his killers along with great sympathy for his family.
The Bible says to “love your enemy”…even the enemy who would slaughter you.
Whether I like it or not, (and I don’t) that’s a non negotiable.
My heart today is to seek out all of this group and slaughter them before they kill anyone else.
I would approve of my government doing so.
I passionately hate radical Islam and believe it to be not only evil, but supernaturally empowered by the father of evil.
That doesn’t erase that verse…it makes it very difficult to read and harder to obey.
Today, like every Wednesday, we will remember Saeed Abedini.
We do more than just remember, however…we stand with him by using our social media to advocate for his release.
We ask that you change your Facebook profile picture to his and that you “like” the “Free Saeed” Facebook page and participate in some of the activities that promote his cause.
We ask…that you remember him and his family in prayer…and that you refuse to give up on efforts to secure his release.
