Hi NNS,I don't mean to change your convection. If it's right that's great. The issue goes beyond the commercial, to the aspect of acceptance/tolerance of Islam, and the observed dangers that come with that. I want to obey God, but I don't want another Paris-like attack in the US because there's a large enough population that gets radicalized. The faith to follow and trust God is rivaled by the terrorists manic efforts of mass murder. Don't return evil for evil but conquor it by doing good. That's my current understanding.
So I say it again. If I'm wrong please give some correction. I'm not trying to fight or debate. The issue is one I occasionally struggle with.
Allen Wynne could speak for himself, but this is your second post and I feel strongly about this since I live on this side and I'd like to make a comment.
I believe, as a Christian, that we are NOT to accept or be tolerant of the Muslim religion.
I used to think that we served the same God but had different beliefs. I no longer believe this to be true.
We serve Jesus, our Lord and our God, a perfect reflection of who God is. He has come here in love and God's light
to show us the Way. He said HE IS the way. To show us the Light. He said He is THE LIGHT. Everything in HIm is love and good and perfect.
Muslims hate Jesus. They call us the people of the cross. They don't serve God Almighty, the Father, the Creator, or there would be no hate in them. God is Love. They serve Mohammad. Mohammad is their god. They live according to the book he wrote. It's a long list of Laws, do's and don'ts which MUST be obeyed. It tells them to kill the infidel. WE are the infidel.
I find it difficult to love someone who wants to kill me. I love them in the sense that they belong to the human race and since God created everything, He also created them as human brothers. However, they do not serve the same God I serve and their objective is to do harm to me. I have the right to protect myself from harm.
Jesus said to be as gentle as doves and as wise as serpeants. You are NOT wise if you let the enemy into your home so that they could take your life.
Love the muslim. Pray for them. Some actually come to accept Christianity because they are able to see the superiority of it. But they live in fear and will be banished and killed if it is discovered that they no longer practice Islam.
Hate Islam. It is the religion of hate, sanctioned by Mohammad, who is the god served.
Read it someday. It even tells them how to wash themselves. There is no freedom nourished by Love but only Laws and hate.
Jesus came that we might have a life transformed.
Mohammad came that his followers might be conquerors, terrorists, haters of everyone not of their faith.
Hope this helps.
