No Human Being Can Be “Inspired” To Do Evil.

We live in a world where public terror is common place if not in our lives but in the news. My heart and my prayers go out to the innocent victims of terror attacks. No one in their right mind and with a personal relationship with their God or even a nonbeliever can commit such attacks. No human being can be “inspired” to do evil.

Why then does the news occasionally report that “and a big question was he in touch with terror groups directly or was he simply inspired,” as did Pete Williams on the NBC News with Lester Holt on the October 31st broadcast on the “New York City “Act of Terror” where eight fellow innocent human beings lost their lives.


God first inspired us when “He breathed into our nostrils the breath of life (Genesis 2:7).” Every breath, every heartbeat, every thought, every word spoken, and every action we take is an “inspiration” to do good in the world, not evil.

Each one of the seven definitions of “inspire” is a positive, not negative expression of its use in our language.

NBC News, Pete Williams, and other journalists, please STOP using the word “inspire” when referencing terrorists and their evil acts.

Or NBC News, can we expect that one day soon you be featuring a terrorist on your “Inspiring America” segment?

TROML Baby, that is the answer, learn to accept, love and be compassionate to yourself first… then there is no need to control another human being… we all find peace, joy, unity, and freedom in our lifetime and beyond!
