    One thing obvious is that God knows how to fight for Himself. Many changes have come since the time of our Patriarch Jacob who struggled with God in a wrestling duel. Over time the temple has been removed regardless of our concerted effort inclusive bitter wars and in fact the pride of Islam put at the most precious site. Lifestyle changes are creeping on us even as we try to hold our ground with all our might, as in an American football game duel. True God is love and all who love Him also love - if we claim to be of God we have to love; that is indisputable in the circle of the wise. Someone may ask but what about the contamination that is threatening our chastity. The early Church in many parts of the world fought fiercely against dressing Code. All you need to do is sit behind a lady dressed provoke fully and you realize somehow it is like you are in a devils seminar rather than a place where God is respected or is the focus. So l understand, all the same as it was during the old days of Prophet Samuel, the Pioneers and Judges sometimes God says let their fought for will be done. I think God hates disputes or fights therefore the wise are those who seek peace. In an environment of peace God brings solutions; David the renowned king loved God and served God. Prophet Samuel enquired from God and left the solution to Him. I know my brothers the Hare dim love God; let us know that God has the power to sustain Himself in us and spread Himself to others if we love and seek his face.
