Dear Agentblackdiamond

Thank you for your kind words, and just to "ink-in" the biological growth of Islam, I mention a report prepared by the Office Of National Statistics in Britain, and published by TimesOnline newspapers on 30th.January 2009, titled "Muslim population 'rising ten times faster than rest of society' " and which can be found at http://tinyurl.com/almtyh

I'm thankful that over the years Dr Pipes has published lots of my comments, many of them preaching the Gospel of Grace, and whilst Muslims speak of Allah's mercy, the God revealed in the printed pages of the Bible, and supremely revealed as the living, loving Word of God, Jesus Christ, is a God of Grace, and there's a massive difference between mercy and grace. Mercy is not being given what you deserve, whilst grace is being given what you don't deserve, the Bible saying that "You were saved by faith in God, who treats us much better than we deserve. This is God's gift to you, and not anything you have done on your own. It isn't something you have earned, so there is nothing you can brag about." Ephesians 2:8-9

Someone saying that grace is God's Riches At Christ's Expense

I know nothing of your standing with the God of the Bible, but I do know we've got a problem, a massive problem, we're sinners and we need a Saviour, and the Saviour's name is Jesus Christ, "who came into the world to save sinners." 1 Timothy 1:15 and Who is "Able to save to the uttermost all those who come to God through Him." Hebrews 7:25

We're not worth it Agentblackdiamond, we can't earn it and we don't deserve it, do you want it? the life in all its fullness that Jesus Christ and Him alone can provide, Jesus telling us His job description by saying, "I have come that they may have life, and have it in all its fullness." John 10:10

Like all of us Agentblackdiamond, you're going to live forever, and if you haven't already done so, you need to choose your address, please, please choose life in Jesus' Name.

One other thing I mention, and a very, very important thing, because it's something very important to the God of the Bible, is that His Name is precious and not to be casually misused as an expletive, God saying when He gave the Ten Commandments to Moses, "Do not misuse my Name, I am the LORD your God, and I will punish anyone who misuses my Name." Exodus 20:7

With thanks and kind regards

Lactantius Jr
