You are saying that sure make war but don't think God is on your side becuase
Everyone has an agenda which makes perfect sense to them.
Killing for any reason is bad. Real bad.
My vibe is these terrreist people are deranged, off base hate filled people.
"Good" is not in their category.
For us to claim we represent "good" maybe that's too much to bite off.
I think we're OK. Our heart is in the right place.
And they very much not. Simplistic perhaps that's all I've got.
