Many still do ask.
Two months later, confusion and mixed reactions to the ongoing war continue to run rampant. There seems to be little relief from the lies and the propaganda.
“What is happening isn’t just a conflict between countries. It’s a spiritual conflict pitting good against evil,” Pastor Joe Pedick, who is the lead pastor for Calvary Chapel of the Harbour in Huntington Beach, California, told Think Eternity Monday (Dec. 4).

You can’t stop God’s plan.”
