Now our generation has 9/11. I met a guy who was there in one of the towers when the planes hit. He was in a conference room, giving a presentation. He was a VP for a company that had offices in the Twin Towers. He was changed, in an instant. He quit his job and to my knowledge, never went back.
We were all changed, in various ways. We had our first look at the real face of Islam: Jihad. Anyone who tells you that Islam is a “Religion of Peace” is lying. There are over 1B followers world wide. Even if just 10-15% of them are “Radical” then that makes it 100M – 150M RADICAL JIHADISTS who want us dead. They want Israel wiped off the map also.
We must not forget – ever! We don’t have to be passive either. The Bible doesn’t say to lay down like sheep and be slaughtered. It doesn’t say “Do not kill” it says “Do not MURDER”. Big difference. The original King James Version got that wrong, and messed up many people. There is such a thing as a just war. And one look at the smoldering towers on 9/11 was enough for all of us to realize that EVIL IS REAL.
