"The cyclone derives its powers from a calm center. So does a person. Norman Vincent Peale

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27:1

"Study and show yourselves approved..............."
"The ministry of the internal spirit does not nullify the the ministry of the "external Word." The spirit does not nullify what the book was designed to do. The spirit glorifies the incarnate Word of the gospels, but he does not re-narrate his words and deeds for illiterate people or negligent pastors."
John Piper "the Legacy of Soverign Joy"

"For a man's ways are in full view of the Lord, and he examines all his paths.
The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the chords of his sin hold him fast.
He will die for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great folly." Proverbs 5:21-23

Keep up the good work

"For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with his angels, and then He will reward each according his works." Mathew 16:27

He does not require that you blow yourself up and kill many other people to recieve your reward, either.
If there are 100 virgins waiting in heaven for the Moslem man who commits murder by blowing himself up, were there also 100 virgins waiting for the women who did the same thing?

What does one do with virgins in heaven?
Probably not what the suicide bombers were expecting.

Shalom, Y'all
