Scripture reminds believers:
The Day of the Lord is certain to occur, and just as one of our days reaches a conclusion, so also will it. In view of that coming time, Scripture proclaims, "...Behold, now is 'THE ACCEPTABLE TIME,' behold, now is 'THE DAY OF SALVATION'" (2 Cor 6:2)
Terrorists kill their enemies in the name of their god. God's people are instructed to love their enemies and "do good to those who hate you" (Luke 6:27)
