An Updated Rerun 2009 Series
Paul ‘Bear’ Bryant, legendary football coach at the University of Alabama, once said, “It’s not the will to win that matters – everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”
The days of unskilled shoe bombers are almost over. Instead, America can soon expect to see Mumbai-type terrorists. Radical. Dedicated. Trained. Armed. Willing to die. Filled with hate. Hoping to kill large numbers of innocent men, women and children before they exhale their last breath.
These terrorists want to win. And they are prepared.
To counter these radical terrorists, America needs radical Christians who are dedicated, trained, armed, filled with love, willing to die for their family and neighbors and hoping to be life-giving witnesses to terrorists and others until their last breath.
I wish I could say that all of us Christians are prepared and ready to go…or even a small fraction of us. But the truth is that most (99%) of us are not dedicated. Not trained. Not armed (with spiritual weapons). We are bogged down with the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things.
But guess what? The radical terrorists will pay no heed to our excuses. They will kill you, me, our spouses, our children, our grandchildren, our neighbors, and whomsoever, if we are not prepared.
So, we need to make up our minds now.
Because when the terrorist attacks hit us, our president, our governors, our mayors, our city council members, our police and the national guard will not be able to help us. They will be too late. Only the DMORT teams will arrive on the scene in time to stuff us and our loved ones into body bags.
Today, I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, that you and your descendants might live. (Deuteronomy 30: 19 New Living Translation)
