Breaking News Alert

Muslims Murder Someone (yawn)

It’s another day of waking up to “Breaking News Alerts” about muslims on a killing spree. (How does this obvious thing qualify as news?)

But there are more victims than those reported

The news consuming public are victimized, too. Our minds, instead of freely working on solutions to common everyday issues, are now captured,  obsessing over a host of threats, unable to engage in creative thinking. (This is one of the primary objectives of terrorism, to paralyze the public with fear.)


We have a better “Breaking News Alert”

His love endures forever,” no matter what happens.

“…by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”
– Hebrews 2:14-15

Benefit of faith: We can go on with our lives as if these circus clowns didn’t exist, and if the “worst” happens, so what? Absent from the body is present with the Lord. Instead of the endless hand wringing we see on the news, we can concentrate on our ongoing personal responsibilities, which does include the crushing of islamic extremism, marxism, lawlessness (like MS-13), and even…

ordinary things like dishes, laundry, gardening, our jobs, and…
“doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly before our God.”

So they stole the news cycle for a day. Let’s not also surrender to them any of the real estate in our minds. We have better breaking news:
His Love Endures Forever.

  1. Love the article—but the WORD PRESS ad currently on here is pretty crude and sexual. But do we have any choice in the matter???

      Thank you for that information, Jonathan. We are wondering about that, too. The ads WordPress places are different at different moments. Right now I’m looking at an ad for tourism in Paris. So it’s hard for me to track down the ad you saw.

    • No, FOTM has no control over WordPress ads. However, it is supposedly a WordPress policy not to place obscene ads. If you see the ad again, please take a pic and send it to me with description, so I can register a complaint with WP.

  3. When they say it’s a religion of peace what they mean by peace is when all people on earth are muslim by choice, coercion, or execution. They have the world divided into two, one is called the house of islam, the other is called the house of war. Guess where the house of war is.

    God has promised us a destination, but He does not smooth the path for us. Our faith clears the way.

    If we run all the murderous Muslims out of the country who will run the convenience stores ? Ever notice C-stores don’t have hot dogs anymore, wonder why that is ?
