Mid-Week Challenge

 Attorney General Loretta Lynch recently addressed reporters concerning the ongoing investigation into the Orlando nightclub shooting that occurred a week ago where 49 people were killed.  Disappointingly, in her remarks Mrs. Lynch revealed the long suspected agenda that the Obama administration has towards the LGBT community. Lynch failed to address the attack as an attack on America; instead she chose to aim her remarks “to the LGBT community” as if they were the only ones affected by the shooting.  In addition, she failed to acknowledge that the shooter was motivated by his ties with radical Islam and ISIS.  Even after transcripts of his 911 calls were released that proved his actions were motivated by Islam and hate for Americans.  But most troubling were her words in way of a solution.  Lynch said that the “most effective” weapon at America’s disposal against Islamic terrorism is “love.”  After listening to the heartbreak and devastation of these families who lost loved ones, after seeing the flag draped coffins of our servicemen arrive home while fighting Islamic forces overseas, one would think the Attorney General of the United States would say that the most effective weapon at America’s disposal against Islamic terrorism is a Tomahawk Missile.  Really, love is the most effective weapon?  Clearly she was using the term “love” as a nod to the LGBT community as they often use the phrase “love wins” to describe their legal and political victories.  But maybe Lynch is on to something even she is not aware of.  The Bible makes it very clear in 1 John 4:8 that God is Love: Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

In the battle against flesh and blood we must respond with a show of force and power.  In the much larger and more important spiritual battle we know that it is the spiritual forces of evil we are fighting.  (For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Ephesians 6:12)

The only way to win the war against Islamic terror is to protect ourselves with a strong show of guns and bombs that will eliminate them from existence.  What Lynch, Obama and all others who lean in their direction fail to understand is that the ultimate war for eternity can only be won by a repented heart toward the living God who is Love.  When we fail to acknowledge Him, seek to silence His followers and seek to shift blame away from the true cause of fear, all the human love in the world cannot save us.  Why do they continue to deny the God of true love that has proven Himself over and over again?

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
