Action that Should be Taken by Christians

in response to reader comment: Action should be taken by Muslims

"Action should be taken by Muslims...." and that's what the Islamic fundamentalists are doing, taking action, just not like the way you are recommending.

Followers of Yeshua HaMashiach are prescribed to respond in love and not by any means against the commandments of love. When Christians fail, they have to account for their actions. That's why hatred that leads to killing was never condoned by Yeshua.
