  1. See, now if England was more pro-Islamic and became an Islamic nation, this wouldn't have happened. But NOooooooh, you just gotta fight against the inevitable. Well, serves you right.

  2. We live in a sinful world, with sinful people who made choices based on their sinful nature; we all know this because we also had made wrong sinful choices many times. Mankind has a "free-will" to decide their course of actions - this attack is an example of how destructive and perverse a human heart could be when does not believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Due to this "free-will" that God granted to humanity, history has recorded many atrocious actions performed by human beings. Their actions is a reflection of the believes and thought-life in their minds. Unfortunately, the devil knows too well human's sinful nature and influences people to lie, kill and destroy according to his plans. Sometimes the saying that goes "the devil made me do it" is right on; however, it does not takes away the attacker's responsibility for his choices and actions. Although, God does not take away the attacker's ability to freely make his own choices, He does not condoned his actions. The attacker could have renounced to his evil intentions.

    God doesn't want anyone to perish, but to have eternal life through Jesus Christ. God's nature is love and He still care for all the families and the victims of this tragic event. He also prompts mankind to promote goodwill and peace in the world. This is evident with the responses of emergency workers and volunteers that came to the victim's rescue; By the statements of government officials appealing to human's moral convictions to repudiate this attack; by forging stronger emotional bonds between family members as they take comfort in each other; by prompting government workers to reflect on this event for future safety preparations and by motivating all of us to seek God's will through prayer. Let's pray for the families that are going through mourning their losses, for the government officials to gain godly wisdom and for God's kingdom of peace to be established on Earth. In Jesus's name, Amen.
