Hi George:
 
I'd pray for everybody, including him. But if he had paid attention to
the Scriptures he should have been reading he might still be in Virginia
as I am.
 
Plus, I'm a patriot. I flew 164 combat missions in Viet Nam. I
wouldn't traipse around Iraq looking for ways to embarrass my own
country. Read this:
"The most recently released video of the men shows Kember and Fox
blindfolded with their hands chained together. In it, Fox blames the
American and British presence in Iraq for his plight.
'The only way that we can all be free is for the American and British
soldiers to leave Iraq as soon as possible,' he said."
Nathan Hale he ain't.

So let's not pray for him because he's got some bad theology. I thought
we were supposed to pray for our enemies, but I guess we shouldn't for
Christians who are in error.
 
Shalom

I guess they found evidence of civil rights abuses, huh. One of the
hostages is Tom Fox who lives in Virginia and thus has gotten special
attention in the Washington Post and local TV coverage. Another irony
is that Fox, a Christian, believed there was good in all men. I wonder
where he got that notion? Jer. 17:9 says, "The heart is deceitful above
all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"
 
Had he heeded the words of the prophet, and pondered Proverbs 3:5:
"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own
understanding," he might have enjoyed Christmas in Virginia.

### Yeah. The poor souls.

They've been under discussion here for several weeks, now. Here is a
small sample of it:

"..their brother was in Iraq to gather information on alleged human

Looks like they found some.

I guess the terrorists didn't get the memo about CPT being on their
