Great point, Sherrod, thanks for the news link. The same that goes for our physical plants - tower sites for example - that we are not exempt from the evils in the world simply because we are working for a Higher Cause than the cross-town stations are on a regular basis. Copper thieves and vandals attack our Christian stations for the same reason.
And that same reason is why bad things happen in our world - there are evil people out there. When tragedy strikes (like a mass shooting or some other terror act) the world struggles to "find a motivation" for the actions; we should be wise enough to know that sometime it is just because there is evil in the world and that force is constantly fighting against good. Period. No other explanation is necessary. We are also called to be harmless as doves, but wise as serpents and that covers a lot of area in our lives. ,

Subject: [CRTech] News: "Man breaks into Orlando Christian radio station; attacks employees, officials say"
Saw this in a e-newsletter from Radio World this week:
Wow. I'd be interested to learn what the motivation was for the
rampage, but it is a stark reminder that we're in a battle for not
_just_ the airwaves.
Let's (please!) not let this thread debase into a fight over gun
control, but we have to face the reality that as Christians we need to
be prepared to defend ourselves and others around us at any time
because this could have just as easily been someone armed and with
murderous intentions. Go read Nehemiah 4:16 to see a plain and stark
reminder to be ready and able to defend yourself physically, not just
by putting on the spiritual armor of Ephesians 6:10-18.
There's nothing new under the sun, but now more than ever it certainly
seems there are increasing cases of the enemy bringing physical
attacks against us in our mission. Stand strong!
