It’s no secret our world is in a state of chaos. There are wars and rumors of wars in Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, and beyond. Some countries are raising their terrorism-threat levels. Others are contemplating how to respond to threats foreign and domestic.
Chaos around the world is not new, nor is it surprising. The god of this world delights in promoting evil. What stands out today is the extreme wickedness and cruelty with which evil advances. Yet the Lord has not left us without sufficient understanding, nor without a plan for how to respond.
That in mind, how should Christians respond to a world in crisis? Here are some resources that offer a biblical perspective:
“Understanding Islam” (article)
“A Biblical Perspective on Death, Terrorism, and the Middle East, Part 1” (sermon)
“A Biblical Perspective on Death, Terrorism, and the Middle East, Part 2” (sermon)
The Christian and Government (audio series)
Where in the World Is History Headed? (audio series)
Terrorism, Jihad, and the Bible (book)
