Latest threats of violence from the "religion of peace."
1. Threat of violence for burning the Koran. The Florida pastor is probably not wise or godly to threaten to burn copies of the Muslim Koran. However, the reaction to the possibility is contradictory and amusing.
Everyone is warning against Muslim violence because of it! This morning I received an urgent e-mail from a missionary leader friend overseas asking for prayer because his fellow missionaries in Muslim countries are facing violent threats because of this.
Wait a minute! What happened to the "religion of peace"? We have been told that most Muslims are moderate and peaceful and only a radical few are violent. Why would these "moderate and peaceful" Muslims react with predicted violence?
2. Threat of violence for opposing the Mosque near the WTC. The "imam" leading the charge for putting the mosque near the WTC Ground Zero, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, warned us today, "If you don't do this right, anger will explode in the Muslim world." He later said the reaction could be more furious than the eruption of violence following the 2005 publication of Danish cartoons.
Note his wording. Muslims always want to "explode" things. They always threaten violence from any criticism or disagreement. They are always getting outraged. They are always in a bad mood. In their desire to explode, they often try to get little children to explode themselves to kill others while they hide behind women and other children.
In the interest of tolerance, this "imam" might gain some credibility if he promoted the establishment of a church or synagogue in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Of course, that is unthinkable. It is only the West that is supposed to be tolerant. They use our Constitution and Christian traditions against us. Duped Americans such as Obama, NYC Mayor Bloomberg, and misguided editorial writers are allowing and promoting it.
Muslims have the West intimidated. No one wants them to explode, at least on our property. If they want to explode out in the desert somewhere where they will just scatter sand, that is okay. But they would not want this because they want to splatter infidel guts. Aren't they nice? This "religion of peace" is really great.
How many Christians rioted and blew themselves and others up for the many recent offenses, such as the crucifix in urine display? There is no record of rioting when the Savior was crucified -- the ultimate offense.
Faith in this wonderful Savior, who gave up His own life without protest, is often disparaged in our left-wing media. Just this morning, the editorial cartoon in a major left-wing metropolitan newspaper portrayed Bibles being burned (instead of the Koran) because it promoted hatred and killing. This sick perversion of truth by sick people is frequent.
But Jesus prophesied it:
- "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you" (John 15:18-20, NKJV).
