Phil Explains What Motivates The Terrorists

What makes someone willing to kill others--and themselves? That's what many of us wonder when we hear about terrorist attacks. We think: That must be some pretty strong ideology.


But Phil Robertson, patriarch of Duck Dynasty, says it's more than ideology. It's evil. In his book, "unPHILtered," Phil shares what he believes is behind the terrorism.

"According to 1 John 5:19, 'We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.' Understanding that the world is under the control of the Evil One explains killing, wars, robberies, injustices...and why a group of men would get on four jet airplanes on the morning of September 11, 2001, and fly the jets into tall buildings full of people in New York and Washington, DC."

Phil states the bottom line: "They weren't thinking for themselves, folks. They were under the control of the Evil One."

And Phil says that what we do in response is not good for our children: "In today's world, our children are being taught that there are no such things as good and evil, and they're being told that it is wrong to suggest that something is good or evil."

So that just leaves them confused, having to come up with some nebulous reason for such terror. But Phil says knowing the real problem helps you know the real solution: Jesus.

"If you want peace and harmony in this country, or wherever you are on earth, only the gospel of Jesus can do it," Phil shares.
