Syria: Trump tweets 'Mission Accomplished' after Western forces
4-14-18, Today ahead of chemical weapons team inspection, the US, British and French forces in sending missiles and bombs at Syria hit more targets and used more firepower than the US did in a similar military strike last year. Apparently it was a restrained operation calculated to avoid provoking Syria’s patrons in Russia and Iran into retaliating. More here from New York Times
Russia says no evidence of gas attack in Douma, Syria
Yevtushenko said the Russian ... a chemical attack by the Syrian ... actions to avoid further military escalation in Syria. ...
Russia says Goal of Syria strikes was to prevent chemical watchdog's fact ...
4-14-18, RT.com -- The airstrikes were conducted hours before inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) were to start their fact-finding mission at the site. “There’s every reason to believe that the purpose of the attack on Syria was to obstruct the work of the OPCW inspectors,” the statement read.
Moscow pointed out that the Western allies ignored evidence provided by Syria and Russia that the alleged chemical attack was actually staged in a “cynical” manner.
God has mercy on whom He wants to have mercy, and He hardens whom He wants to harden (Romans 9:18). From a human perspective, it seems wrong for God to harden a person and then punish the person He has hardened.
However, Biblically speaking, we have all sinned against God (Romans 3:23) and the just penalty for that sin is death (Romans 6:23).
Therefore, God’s hardening and punishing a person is not unjust; it is actually merciful in comparison to what the person deserves. Romans 9:17-18 declares:
“For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: ‘I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display My power in you and that My name might be proclaimed in all the earth.’
