My friends, the latest foiled terror plot was again carried out by a radical Christian, gun-toting, fundamentalist, Bible thumping hick from the sticks… oh wait… typo… that’s wrong. Once again the terror plot was hatched and nearly executed by a radical Muslim from Nigeria. The Christmas day attempt at blowing up a plane over Detroit was foiled only when the explosives didn’t explode and a courageous man leaped over seats to subdue the burning would-be bomber.
And once again, very few mentions that this guy was a Muslim. I have said it time and time again that Islam is not a religion of peace but of war and strife and subjecting their enemies. While the majority of Muslims probably are peace-loving, friendly neighbors/friends, they are akin to Christians that go to church but don’t really buy into the whole relationship with Jesus. They may believe in allah and so forth, but really are not following the Koran to the word. If we look inside the Koran we can see that it is full of murder, violence, subjection of women and beheading of infidels.
People might come up to me and say, “Well what about the Old Testament? What about those strict rules of conduct?” The difference is, in Jesus we are set free from the Law and the Law is no longer binding on us. The rules of no mixed wool/polyester shirts is done away with, the prohibition against pork is removed (Can I get a Hallelujah?) In the Koran there is no such removal of the violence and commands to spread Islam by the mouth first but by the sword if people don’t answer. Jesus Christ never once commanded his followers to kill infidels and he actually restored the servant of the high priest’s ear when Peter drew his sword and cut it off. (See Luke 22:50-51) Jesus did not defend himself when tried before Pilate, nor did he allow his disciples to. On the contrary, Muhammed allowed for the slaughter of women (read about the poet who was slaughtered as she nursed her infant) the slaughter of Jews (“A day is coming when the tree will cry out, ‘there is a jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.”) etc.
As much as we want to deny it in our politically correct and squeamish society, Islam is at war with us. There are moderate Muslims that don’t want to fight America and love America but the fundamental religion of Islam is, and always will be at war with the U.S. and the entire modern world. Islam hates those that deny Muhammed, allah or the Koran. Christians are taught to love those that use and persecute them.
Time and again we see that those that wish to do us harm and to destroy our way of life are overwhelmingly Islamic in nature. We see people chanting in the streets of Iran ‘Death to Israel! Death to America!’ We see people that say they love death more than the west loves life. We see a religion that promises those that kill themselves for allah 72 virgins in heaven. Christians are promised that we will see the face of God in heaven and enjoy His presence when we pass from this world unto life eternal. But Islam, in an excellent political and military move, promises a carnal and sexual reward to entice young men to be willing to sacrifice themselves for a cause that will almost certainly lead them to death. Christians value life because the Bible teaches that all men are known by God in their mother’s womb and that He cares for us and sent His Son to die for us so that we may be free from our sins. Muslim terrorists love death because they anxiously wait for their reward of 72 virgins to fulfill their carnal desires.
Also, they are taught from the Koran that an unbeliever is an enemy of allah. Christians are taught that unbelievers are to be witnessed to that they might be won for Christ and pass from death to life. Islam teaches that a man cannot know his eternal destination save for those that die fighting for him. Christians can know that as long as they believe in the only begotten Son of God, their sins are forgiven and heaven is their eternal destination.
As President Obama says, “We are not at war with Muslims.” This is true. We are not at war with Muslims. But we are at war with an ideology that teaches hatred, violence, subjugation and death. We are at war with a religion that kills those that do not convert. Until America can shake ourselves awake from our stupor on the situation pertaining to Islam, we will continue to suffer attacks. America needs to wake up and realize that if we want to win this war, we have to know who we are fighting.
