Well Biblically Syria conquered Israel several times by God’s will when his people ceased following him… Remember God’s involvement isn’t necessarily always protection, when nations turn against him.
What was his people’s sins that lead to defeat by other nations to teach them a lesson? Worshiping other gods, or not worshiping God at all…

Some of museums now use ‘simulation’ to try to give a person a first hand experience in different battles and disasters in history. Sometime computerbased, other times walk in experiences with motion seats and moving parts, smells explosions.
Sometimes rehabilitation, and punishment (so that they learn not to do it again) is the best help for someone… Pressing charges is not necessarily evil… He will certainly be betting 3 squares and a bed in Jail… Priest can still visit him and talk to him in the jail.
Forgiveness also doesn’t necessarily mean ‘dropping the punishment’. A parent punishes their children because they love their child and want them to do better in the future, but still forgive them for doing it.
Of course a church is not obligated by helping someone by letting them continue to use a room that is probably not classed for human habitation. But they may have other services such as clothing, food, blankets, and stuff forother basic needs. That the person can ask for.
Anymore than a church has to be inclusive to the sins of a active homosexual, adultery, or any other sins.

Should a church help illegal aliens? They are poor as well, and only ‘breaking/trespassing into the United States’….
If you really care to watch… This is what he did to people in Scotland… Convincing a town council to break its own laws, and push people off their own lands. Acting ‘nice’ at first, and then trying to utterly destroy them when they wouldn’t give up their land.
But since Trump fans have developed a Cult of Personality around Trump… I doubt anyone will even listen to the warnings… or believe what he has done in the past…
It wasn’t actually a briefcase, but a pencilbox designed to look like a briefcase. It’s actually not that large, and the clock face took up most of the inside space.
I had a similar case back in school, but it only had my pens and colored pencils. Its not that big, and you can fit into a backpack.
Still putting clock faces in cases makes no sense….

It actually wasn’t a ‘briefcase’, it was a tiny pencil metal pencil box designed to look like a ‘briefcase’. But the clock took up most the space…
Still very strange, and makes you question why the kid did it….

Not a briefcase, it was a ‘pencil box’. It was much smaller than a briefcase. The clock took up most the space.
Still, very ‘strange’, and makes you go ‘hmm’.

That is only for turning in ‘white people’, while ignoring the potentially butthurt minorities.
