For the sake of clarification, I do worship the LORD of the Holy Bible, the circumstances of which are granted to me by Him through Yeshua HaMashiach-Jesus Christ His only begotten Son, who was born into humanity sinlessly to receive to Himself people like me who have recognized my need for a Savior Who became a sacrifice on the cross to take away my sin, the same Jesus Christ.

Now here is yet another claim that anyone who is not a practicing Muslim is ignorant, yet in saying so is revealing a lack of knowledge of the Holy Bible, such ignorance of the WORD of the LORD being manifest by not understanding why it exists in the first place. Because there is a lack of knowledge of the precepts of the Holy Bible, it is not hard to understand why many would defer to the Quran in substitution.

But there is in the previous post a valid observation: why does someone who is not a Christian and kills for a cause that is not Christian get labeled as a Christian? It is written in the Holy Bible of Christianity that true Christians are to speak of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and share the WORD of His love for all. Nowhere in the Holy Bible is there found the command to kill any who do not believe.

Now, allegations of supposed Christian misconduct as it relates to engaging the precepts of Islam is centered in this: Islam teaches that Christianity is not to be trusted, and Muslims have killed followers of Jesus Christ just as quickly as faux Christians have taken up arms against adherents of Islam. If Jesus Christ Himself says, "love thine enemies," and Jesus Christ has not commanded to kill unbelievers in His Name, then one has to wonder why the Muslims do not seek the same peace promised by Jesus Christ in truth and get away from killing at all? We all of the Faith know that true Christians do not need to kill to prove out their salvation.

Let's take this further: that if Jerusalem is the place of Jesus Christ's crucifixion-and all of the evidence is there for any of faith to see-then what is the fixation of the Muslims to annex Jerusalem if it is the center of the Christian belief of Jesus Christ? Also, if there is a definitive assertion of Islam to harbor this claim over Jerusalem, which version of Islam is going to deal with the Christian promise of the return of Israel's Messiah?

So, when one says, 'worship the LORD,' realize that the distinction remains that Christians WILL worship the LORD, but the LORD of the Holy Bible is the One to be worshipped through His Son, Jesus Christ.
