    God rest his soul in peace and protect his family. Ours is such a temporary world.

    May our King Jesus come quickly and reign on earth.

          Yes, that’s also why “moderate” Muslims cannot outcry anything. Our God will bring His justice upon the earth. Lord Jesus is worth our life. He is infinitely much more.
