Boston

Today was bigger than religion. Today was bigger than faith, dogma, personality, culture, or whatever other differences divide us on a daily basis. 
Today was about evil. Evil is real. It is everywhere, but it is not God’s will.

God never desires terror. God never desires the taking of innocent life. God’s desire is for peace, and shalom, and reconciliation, and exodus. 

There will be religious people trying to attach spiritual significance to today’s act. That it was judgment, or retribution, or any number of other things. 

Pay them no attention. 

They are wrong. They are misguided, and they are blind. 

God desires victory, and in the end, it will be his. Days like today make it very hard for me to be a pacifist, but God is bigger than the Satan, and in the end, he wins. 

Hug your kids tight tonight, and thank God for another day. 

“See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone” 

-1 Thess 5:15
