The General and the Book
There are other commentaries on this particular news story, so I'll keep mine brief.
From CBN News, Oct. 17:
Referring to a battle against a Muslim warlord in Somalia, [General] Boykin told another audience, "I knew my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol."From the Koran, Sura 39, verses 17-18:
And (as for) those who keep off from the worship of the idols and turn to Allah, they shall have good news, therefore give good news to My servants,That is all.
Those who listen to the word, then follow the best of it; those are they whom Allah has guided, and those it is who are the men of understanding.
