God is watching even if the world isn’t

I have been following the South Korean Hostage crisis fairly closely. 23 South Korean hostages left for Afghanistan two weeks ago on a one week missions trip to help poor villagers. 18 of them were women. They were taken captive by the Taliban soon after they arrived. Two of them, including the pastor’s son, have been brutally murdered. The rest have been threatened with death. Another deadline has just passed.

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.


There is no promises by Jesus that these women will not be brutally murdered and their dead bodies made public display of on the internet – just like 2 of the men were. But the real idiots here are the Taliban. The Taliban can only kill the body. They cannot kill people’s souls. But God can destroy their bodies and their souls- now or in the future. It is an eternally losing proposition for the Taliban to take these women’s lives.
