The Bible furnishes the only real answer to terrorism. Whether the terrorism be Islamic or Muslim terrorism, or terrorism of any other kind, such as that promoted by those who support the so-called “gay” agenda, the Bible gives the only real and ultimate answer that works.
Our government as a whole, and every branch in it, is not the solution to the problem, it is the problem. It is the problem because government no longer represents the people. It no longer follows the law, particularly the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
The Orwellian-named “Department of Homeland Security,” like the so-called “Patriot Act,” does nothing and can do nothing to provide security. They are designed to create dependency on government. They are designed to foster more big government. Protecting freedom and individual rights named in the Bill of Rights are the furthest thing from their minds.
The Apostle Paul said the following:
2 Corinthians 5:11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
Atheists have launched a full attack upon Christians in the military who share their faith with others:
In an interview with Fox News, Weinstein said the military needs to begin prosecuting Christians who share their faith.
“Someone needs to be punished for this,” he said. “Until the Air Force or Army or Navy or Marine Corps punishes a member of the military for unconstitutional religious proselytizing and oppression, we will never have the ability to stop this horrible, horrendous, dehumanizing behavior.”

Mr. Mikey Weinstein, representing the atheist group, the Military Religious Freedom organization, called the sharing of one’s religious faith with others a species of spiritual rape as serious an affront as physical sexual rape. Mr. Weinstein is apparently a Pentagon consultant for religious freedom. Mr. Weinstein condemns Dr. James Dobson but supports the Southern Poverty Law Center. I think Mr. Weinstein has disqualified himself as a consultant worthy of any credence at all by his outrageous charges against people of faith.
But back to the terrorism we really need.
This country is in the spiritual mess that it is in because too few Christians are sharing their faith with others.
The “world” is scared stiff of genuine, Biblical Christianity. Yes, old-fashioned Biblical Fundamentalism. But that is the only true Christianity there is.
Old fashioned Biblical Fundamentalism believes the Bible is the verbally inspired written Word of God. It believes Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. It believes we got here by direct Divine Creation by the act of God. It believes that Jesus is the only way to God because Jesus said so in John 14:6. It believes in interpreting the Bible literally (and otherwise in accordance with the 23 Rules of Interpretation I’ve placed in the October 2010 archives here). It believes we are saved by faith alone through grace alone. It believes Jesus Christ is God the Son. It believes Jesus Christ will literally return bodily to this earth first to receive His own, then to set up His eternal kingdom on this earth which will last forever. It believes that Jesus commanded us to preach and teach the Gospel to every creature. It believes the Gospel message is to be found only in the Bible’s sixty-six books, nowhere else. It believes Jesus Christ literally rose bodily from the dead the third day, and that this constitutes full proof that God approves what Jesus taught, and that Jesus is who He claimed to be, and Who the Bible says He is. It believes that true faith in Jesus Christ produces regenerative change in the life and character of everyone who truly believes in Him, and that this regenerative change produces holiness of life and the fruit of the Spirit in confirmation of that change through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit of God. It believes unflinchingly and uncompromisingly that all who die without faith in Christ shall suffer the penalty of eternal, never ending, everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:46).
Paul said, “Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men.”
Now that is what terrorizes some of those who are lost.
They want the truth suppressed.
Bible truth does not sit well with their chosen lifestyle.
But if everyone who believes the Bible and truly knows Christ as Savior would obey God and be ready to provide an answer with gentleness and respect to everyone who asks of their faith, this would unleash once again the greatest campaign of real Biblical terror since the Apostolic Church, when the Apostles were said by their enemies to be the ones who have “turned the world upside down.” They did that without the printing press, without modern technology, electricity, or transportation. We need to unleash the power of the Gospel by sharing it with those who are willing to listen just like they did. Christians who win souls according to the directions given in the Bible do not force themselves on others, but they do share the truth about Jesus Christ and Who He is with others.
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
