24:5-12 gives a clear picture of how we should respond to the terrorists:
5 A wise man has
and a man of knowledge increases strength;
6 for waging war you need guidance,
and for victory many advisers.
7 Wisdom is too high for a fool; in the assembly at the gate he has nothing
8 He who plots evil will be known as a schemer.
9 The schemes of folly are sin,
and men detest a mocker.
10 If you falter in times of trouble,
how small is your strength!
11 Rescue those being led away to death;
hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
12 If you say, "But we knew nothing about this," does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it?
Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?

Kind words heal and help; cutting words wound and maim (The Message)
Gentle words bring life and health; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit. (NLT)
Philippians 2 14In everything you do, stay away
from complaining and arguing...
Proverbs 12 25 Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.
Romans 12:8 8 if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs
of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently;
if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
We live in a culture increasingly hostile to Christians and their faith. America has become a nation where public school students are prohibited from praying, acknowledging their dependence upon God, and forming religious clubs; where schools and communities are challenged from displaying nativity scenes, the Ten Commandments, and other symbols of our religious and moral heritage. The Thomas More Law Center affirms the right of Christians to publicly practice their religion and freely express their religious beliefs. Our Founding Fathers fought for a nation built on a foundation of religion and morality. Our lawyers are committed to restoring and preserving that foundation.
This book has changed many lives as people discover their purpose in life and how to live and serve others.
The most basic question everyone faces in life is Why am I here? What is my purpose? Self-help books suggest that people should look within, at their own desires and dreams, but Rick Warren says the starting place must be with God and his eternal purposes for each life. Real meaning and significance comes from understanding and fulfilling God’s purposes for putting us on earth.
