Reader comment on item: Walid Shoebat: "Palestinian turns from radical Muslim to true Zionist"
in response to reader comment: Shoebat a fake

At the beginning of your comment you say you are a christian, and then you go on to make some statements that prove to me that you aren't paying attention to the scriptures when God promised a large area of land to Abraham's descendants; I will also point out that God did not mean Ishmael's children but Isaac's. This was promised to those who would be enslaved 400 years in a foreign land and mistreated; then because of that mistreatment God would deliver them from that country with great riches. Does this sound familiar? What is nonsensical about this scripture? It clearly points to the Israelites.

Also, as far as poeple who are fanatical; It took time for Walid to start to recognize the lies being spread by Islam. Who ever said it was a fast and furious 180 of beliefs? When God opens a door, poeple don't always go rushing through; they sometimes peer in and look around for a while.

I think you betray yourself and expose the possibilty that you are in fact a Christian, but not a believer when you refer to Christians as "they" in reference to Christians and Zionist Jews. Also, stating that " I certainly can't imagine" in reference to your belief that Walid could not have married a Christian is very shortsighted an exposes that you may not have all of the facts. Do you know why he married a Christian? Either do I, but it doesn't mean that he couldn't have.

What does this being the 21st century have to do with anything? Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Does he pay any mind to our system of time ?The nation of Israel will be the place where ALL nations will be gathered to worship, in Jerusalem, where Christ will set up his kingdom and reign forever.

Shoebat does not tell me exactly what I want to hear. I'd rather hear that the Jews and Arabs sat down and smelled some roses together; then they went and had a pillow fight and giggled a lot. But instead he speaks of a dreadful reality that will lead to an even more dreadful day where the Earth will be consumed by fire. Do you think I want to hear this because it will confirm that my beliefs in the book Revelation are true? Will I be exhonorated when the elements melt in the extreme heat? I don't want those things to happen, but the course that the Muslims are on will lead to the Judgement of all poeple unless they repent and come to Christ.

Also, I believe that if we repent of or ignorance and hate of these Muslims, God may turn masses of them to Christ through a great work in his church.
