Christianity Being Persecuted

It's not just Israel and Jews that the Muslims hate. They hate both of God's true witnesses (Israel and the Christian Church). Now that they control the Gaza strip, Hamas has started to target Christians. They have informed Christians that they must accept Islamic law. Attacks have already begun.

First off, as a stopped watch is right twice a day and a blind squirrel finds an occasional nut, they have one thing (and ONLY one thing) right:

What we have, unlike the West, is that young women cannot be with men and have relations outside marriage. Sometimes with tens of men. This causes the destruction of the family institution and the fact that many kids come to the world without knowing who are their fathers or who are their mothers. This is not a modern and progressed society," al-Zahar explained.

That one true statement is a truth that is wrapped around the lies of Islam to make it believable and to make the lies of Mohammad harder to perceive. But even God's Word can be twisted into a lie and being right on one issue, that rampant immorality is bad for society, does NOT make them right on anything else. Also we say these things are wrong, but we don't go around killing people who do them and except for a few disobedient radicals, we don't go around destroying things we disapprove of.

Read this from the article:

His comments come after gunmen Sunday attacked Gaza's Latin Church and adjacent Rosary Sisters School, reportedly destroying crosses, bibles, pictures of Jesus and furniture and equipment. The attackers also stole a number of computers.

Jesus said The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy! I come that they may have life and have it abundantly. (John 10: 18 -21)

Jesus also said If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world the world would love its own, but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember what I said to you! "A servant is not greater than his Master." If they persecuted Me they will also persecute you. If they kept My word they will keep yours also. But these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know the One Who sent Me. (John 15: 18 -21) Because they have rejected God's Son, they will persecute the true people of God.

Now it is true that some "Christians" have also stolen, killed, and destroyed in Jesus' name but there is a not-so-subtle difference here. When so-called Christians act like that they are being disobedient to the teachings of Jesus, but when Muslims act like that they are obeying the teachings of Mohammad. Fred Phelps, for example, has the heart of a Muslim and though he says he is a Christian, he acts like a Muslim and he will receive a Muslim's reward, and he will not like it.

As Jesus also said, And do not fear those who can kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for an assarion? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father, but the very hairs of your head are numbered. Therefore do not fear for you are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10: 28 - 31)

Do not fear, for the day will come when Islam, and other things, will fade like a bad dream and be forgotten. On that day God's children will live forever.

Excellent post, Shoprat. Jesus warned us, and nothing happening now should be a surprise.

That said, I can't fathom anyone confusing Fred Phelps with a true Christian.

Jay's right. It is an excellent post!

Yes, the Muslims are right. The liberals in this country have successfully made immorality okay. It's acceptable for couples to live together without the benefit of marriage, and many far worse practices are acceptable by many. It's a great point you make here Shoprat, because that's indeed the only thing they've got right. Having got one thing right however, does not give them the right to do what they revel in doing.

Blessings!

I have a very hard taking insults from anonymous comments seriously. Your comments show who the real idiot is.
