I find myself not believing in coincidence much these days, so when my friend Adrienne Ross asked, “I just wondered if it’s coincidental that the explosions in New York and New Jersey and the stabbings in Minnesota, all on the same day, had any relation to the fact that the nation celebrated Constitution Day yesterday.” I knew my own beliefs were along the same line… No coincidence here.
Explosions in New York and New Jersey would have set off a ready reminder that ISIS is among us, building their own argument for changing our government, and yet… The Constitution, the same one they demand we change is how they have the right to speak out against the liberty they’re demanding we use to allow them to change our laws. Their option offers nothing of liberty, or freedom, or grace. And their sacrificial offering is not that of an innocent lamb, but rather brutal force by which they take and give their own version of sacrifice from others.
There’s no acceptance from ISIS of the policies and rule of law in the rest of the world, and yet they command the world accept and allow them to exist.
Their very existence offers the world a problem that can’t be solved.
