“Scoffers set a city aflame, But wise men turn away wrath. If a wise man contends with a foolish man, Whether the fool rages or laughs, there is no peace. The bloodthirsty hate the blameless, But the upright seek his well-being” (Proverbs 29:8-10 NKJV). Only scoffers, who reject God’s Word, “set a city aflame,” that is, hurt and destroy, as happened in Brussels, Belgium on March 22, 2016. Jesus said the Devil “was a murderer from the beginning” (John 8:44 NKJV), so regardless of the group name, only the Devil would claim responsibility for such slaughter! Those responsible should become as Assyria, “fallen by the sword, Who caused terror in the land of the living” (Ezekiel 32:23 NKJV). The response should be: “preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:15-16 NKJV).
