Whether we find a way to help the Syrian refugees outside of our borders or within our neighborhoods, ours is the opportunity to make a difference in their lives. In the present tensions and climate of fear, the greater concern is not with terrorism as such, but with the Muslim agenda for the Islamization of the entire world. There is no rampart more effective against it than love, mercy, and compassion coupled with biblical truth and witness.
