A Messianic Jew (born-again Christ-follower) and a “religious Muslim” argued recently about whether Islam is a “religion of peace.” That exchange may have provided the sick justification for a Muslim couple’s rage, resulting in the murders of fourteen people at a San Bernardino Christmas party, and illustrating in innocent blood the truth that Islam is not a religion of peace!
I expect it will soon be reported that Jews and Christians were targeted this week, by the blood thirsty Mr. and Mrs. Farook. As is often the case, Satanically inspired hatred for God’s people is the main motivation for murderous Islamists.
Islam is a man-made ideology, not a religion. Since religion originates with God, and there is One God (Jehovah), all others (gods and religions) are false. Allah is a false god, invented by the pedophile Muhammad (may he be terrorized for eternity in the hell created by Jehovah for Satan and his followers).
True religion, as described by the Apostle James, is practiced by those who belong to God, and follow the teachings of His Word, enabled by the empowerment of His Spirit. The actions of these biblically defined “religious” people are clearly foreign to the Islamist. “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” (James 1:27)
“May the Lord give strength to His people! May the Lord bless His people with peace!” (Psalm 29:11/ESV)
This blogger’s purpose is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it. Adonai Eloheinu!
