The fact that the gospel is still preached today, is due mainly to the fact that Christians have been loving one another for 2000 years.

Erdogan (Gog) already controls Idlib (through his jihadist proteges), Al Bab and now Afrin; and he is not disguising the fact that he wants to swallow up Manbij next.
