The Telegraph is reporting that “a vehicle had struck pedestrians on the London Bridge.” After then continuing to Borough Market, the three individuals in the vehicle then got out and began stabbing and cutting people with knives. “Armed response officers then responded very quickly and bravely and confronted the three male suspects who were shot and killed in Borough Market within eight minutes of the first call.” As a result of this brutality, seven innocent people lost their lives. As more and more attacks happen, people can quickly become numb to the atrocities that are taking place within their communities.
Independent.co.uk is reporting how Poland’s Prime Minister Beata Szydlo has commented on these attacks addressing that there is a connection to the migration. “I hear in Europe very often; “Do not connect the migration policy with terrorism,’ but it is impossible not to connect them”. As countries in the European Union respond and comment on the urgency of getting a handle on their borders, we can understand, with greater clarity, why President Trump has made decisions in the past regarding America’s borders. Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage shared, “It seems to me our political leaders really ought to start saying sorry…What these politicians have done for the last 15 years may well affect how we live in this country for the next 100 years.” According to Fox & Friends, ISIS has taken responsibility for this attack.
Understanding the tragedy that many are going through in London, President Trump shared his condolences and concerns with this tweet; “Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U.K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!” Considering what has taken place, the President tweeted his thoughts on implementing a travel ban in America. “People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!” The President also tweeted; “That’s right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won’t help us protect our people!”
It’s important to understand that we have elected our leaders in America. Now that they have taken their places in government, we must not only allow them to do their job, but we must pray for them. We cannot become critical and judge every decision that is being made. Leadership is the easiest thing to do, when you’re not the one leading. It’s easy to quickly criticize the President’s decision to implement a travel ban on certain countries shortly after he took office. There is credible information that he has access to what most of us will never know.
When Gen. John Kelly (Ret.) Director of Homeland Security testified regarding Border Security and Immigration Enforcement, he said these words; “The vetting on the other end, in those seven countries are suspect…” The Director continued to point out, “I believe the vetting on the other end right now is not adequate to protect the nation and then of course we’re considering other measures adding to the vetting on the other end so that we can ensure even more so that the right people are coming to the United States and not bad people.” Considering the amount of intelligence and information that one would have to be privileged to, we can better understand the comments he made when speaking on Fox & Friends to an anchor, “If he knew what I know about terrorism, he’d never leave the house in the morning.” But, there is an upside to his statement. As he continues, “But, the good news, again, we have the finest men and women, in uniform, out of uniform, police officers, local law enforcement, New York City cops protecting us.”
If we are to focus on these occurrences solely by themselves, we can quickly become engrossed in them and become filled with fear and dread. But, these events point to a greater reality. There is a physical battle, and there is a spiritual battle. As Americans, we can view things in terms of our Constitution. As Christians, we need to keep things in view of a Biblical perspective. The very reality of these terrorist attacks happening more and more, and closer together, is a sign of the times that we are in the last days. We must not be overcome with fear or dread, but continue to live in faith and full confidence in Jesus Christ.
