Gut Check Time

While having lunch I noted on Fox news the "peace protestor hostages" taken in Iraq.

While I am sure their objective as
  • "Christian Peacemaker Teams"
  • is one with good intentions, I wonder what they are thinking right now. You have got to think those guys are getting up close and personal with the intended target of our military might is forcing them to reconsider their positions. I wonder if peaceful reasoning with the terrorists is going well?

    I wonder if they will come home alive.

    I do know this, if their hearts belong to Jesus then they have nothing to fear from death. My philosophical dilemma at this point is the difference between Jesus's teachings and the necessary evil of war.
