Reader comment on item: Will Europe Resist Islamization?
in response to reader comment: making way for "isms"

To Trans-parere

Well said, in saying of Islam "it is a system created by man." Firmly believing in "the Gamaliel principle" as I do, I quote the following words spoken around 2,000 years ago by Gamaliel, and recorded in the New Testament Acts of the Apostles at Acts 5:38&39 "Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God." There are lots of isms aren't there, capitalism, commercialism, consumerism, humanism, hedonism etc. but the only two isms I'm interested in are evangelism and baptism, and what's needed is for followers of Jesus Christ do what He told them to do, and demonstrate that "the gates of hell will not prevail against His church." Matthew 16:18

With kind regards Lactantius Jr.
