Terrorism and War
The world is an abnormal world. Because of the Fall...There are many things in this world which grieve, but we must face them down. We never have the luxury of acting in a merely utopian way. Utopian schemes in this fallen world have always brought tragedy. The Bible is never utopian. Authentically biblical morality, and not a non-Christian and romantic counterfeit, demands that people have our prayers but not only our prayers.From my own study of Scripture I would say that to refuse to do what I can for those who are under the power of oppressors is nothing less than the failure of Christian love. . . .This is why I am not a pacifist. Pacifism in this poor fallen world in which we live 'this lost world' means that we desert the people who need the greatest help.
