The time has come. After months of political debate, leaders are finally meeting to map out a U.S. strategy on Islamic State terrorism and expansion. Bruce Allen of Forgotten Missionaries International (FMI) says stopping Islamic State isn’t just a concern for political leaders.
Believers need to listen up and “step up,” too.
“For some reason–maybe because we don’t like to talk about such issues or we are a war-weary nation, we don’t want to hear this,” Allen states.
“And yet, it will come to us if we don’t do anything about it.”
Stopping Islamic State on the political level
Near the end of last week, the head of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Robert Menendez, scheduled a midweek vote to decide “next steps” in the fight against Islamic State. The seemingly last-minute appointment is intended to give panelists a chance to “weigh in” on the issue before going to break.
While the vote is a step in the right direction, it’s highly unlikely that either the House of Representatives or Senate will have time to pass anything that would make a difference on-the-ground before 2015.
