I cannot imagine a context that would some day,

Compare the new terrorists with partisans or conventional terrorists in Israel.
These people often fight in a decentralized manner in small,
autonomous units, too.

There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.

Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
