On the Paris Attacks
The following is adapted from some thoughts on the recent terrorist assaults by Hughie Seaborn of Cairns, Queensland, Australia, a former Pentecostal who is today a friend of the Truth and a friend of the editor of the Friday Church News Notes: “The Babylonians and Syrians are now well entrenched amongst the peoples of the nations who have rejected the God of the Bible and refuse to retain Him in their knowledge. The events of 9/11 in New York City are happening today in other countries because they’ve rejected the God of the Bible and made a ‘god’ of their own imaginations. The nation’s leaders make strange and dangerous decisions about immigration, because they’ve rejected God and He gives them over to think strange thoughts and to make strange decisions, so it says in Romans chapter one. God brings His enemies upon them to cause those who claim to be His people to reconsider their evil ways. Sometimes they repent, like in the book of Joel, but sometimes they get worse, like what’s happening in France. A man brings his mobile piano to the scene of the crime, where people had been ‘innocently’ enjoying a filthy Death Metal concert just hours before, and plays John Lennon’s blasphemous, God-rejecting song ‘Imagine’ (“Man bikes grand piano to attacked Paris concert hall, plays Lennon’s Imagine,” CBCNews, Nov. 14, 2015). The song says we should ‘imagine that there’s no Heaven or Hell, and no religion too’ (especially not that narrow-minded Bible type). Maybe the man should drag his piano over to Iraq or Syria and play that song to ISIS. Not to be outdone, Pope Francis responds to the Paris attacks by shuffling to the window overlooking St. Peter’s Square and offering a prayer of world peace to ‘Mary, Mother of mercy’ (“It’s blasphemy to use God’s name to justify violence,” Zenit.org, Nov. 15, 2015). The pope called the French nation ‘the eldest daughter of the Church, all of Europe and the whole world,’ referring to the long history of the Catholic Church in France. Doesn’t sound like anyone’s going to repent any time soon, does it?”
