WOAH! Shoebat a Man after God' own heart!

in response to reader comment: Shoebat a fake

WOW! I find it interesting that you would associate yourself with Christ and then judge a man you've never met! You're treading on really thin ice with your own relationship with God, are you not?

Mr. Wigton, if you know anything of the conflict in the Middle East, then you would understand that there is no common ground for these two nations to stand on. The Muslims HATE Jews, and Jews only respond in self-defense. The Bible tells you repeatedly to stand for "peace" in the nation of Israel. It is apparent that you are like I was before reading Mr. Shoebat's and other expert testimonies on the Truth about the Islamic hatred toward Jews- completely oblivious!

From what I've read in Mr. Shoebat's own writings, and what I gathered from his talk at my church today, this man lived a life conflicted. It seems that God had a hold on him way before he was converted. This is true of my own life, and I've always wondered if others have sensed that in their own lives after they have a salvation moment. Walid spoke of his first acts of terror that he committed, and the knowledge that he had "blood on his hands." A strong sense of conviction was apparent.

He recalls making fun of his own mother for being Christian American, and feeling a sense of remorse. He explains the feeling of being torn from the beginning.....doing what he was "taught" was the right thing to do, and hearing the still, small voice in his gut say..."Why would you do something like that?" SO! Your comment on him making a 180 degree turn.....eh, I think you're ignorant to his true state before becomming a Christian.

The Bible warns you, Christ himself warns you that the only unforgivable sin is that of blasphemy of the Holy Spirit....I don't believe that this is your intention, but let me give you a definition: "The unrepentant attitude of unbelief and hatred for the work of God in the person of Jesus Christ and His Spirit." You could not possibly commit this sin and be a "REAL" Christian. However---you are walking a slippery slope when you start to judge and post online for the world to see oppositional messages about a man who is speaking Truth to misguided and ignorant people of Western Culture (myself included).

"I am also deeply concerned with his obvious hatred for the Palestinian people. He acts as if they are all demon-inspired spawns of Satan. Someone who is truly Christian would want to work for peace and reconcilliation between the Jews and Palestinians."-----I vaguely remember Jesus Christ himself, walking into the temple where his "OWN" people were making a mockery of the temples and overturning tables, cracking a WHIP! Was this Him HATING those people? Can someone preach the Truth, be mortified and disgusted with their own people, pray for their salvation and STILL cause a scene? Well...I hope so, because if not, then my Saviour is one of those people, and I have no reason to pay Him due credit!

Why don't you read his book....go to a lecture, pray for the man? Then let me hear your oppositional opinion! Remember who Walid states he stands for....the "Work of God in the person of Jesus Christ!" I pray you are given grace and mercy to come to full knowledge of your place in this matter!
