‘The Time Is Coming That Whoever Kills You Will Think That He Is Offering A Service To God’

How do you deal with psychotic religious warriors that believe that they are offering a service to God by killing Christians?  Ever since 9/11, we were endlessly told about what a great threat “al-Qaeda” was, but I don’t remember a single time when al-Qaeda ever marched a group of Christians out and beheaded them on
