Plenty of Blame to Go Around - It's Not Just the West

in response to reader comment: who is the culprit in this world

You are looking for culpability? You are trying to say that for the last two thousand years the United States is responsible for all the world's troubles? You are trying to say that good men and women should be lumped for the actions of others that did not desire to follow the words of 'all men are created equal?'

On the contrary, the devil was instrumental in perverting the truth of the language that forms true Christian principles, the corruption you are so fond of trying to quote, but cannot get it right. The United States is just as vulnerable as any country that does not honor the Hebrew Holy Bible; but the United States did not write the Holy Bible; only those who honor the Holy Bible desire to follow its principles in allegiance to Jesus Christ as disciples.

Now, there are those within the sphere of the United States influences that pervert the good intentions of the few who do honor the Holy Bible; but to cast aspersions about Jesus Christ's true influences are the work of the Adversary. That is based upon your Muslim ideology and does not have universal application outside the Islamic world.

Now, you query: "what is wrong with Shari'a laws?" From a disciple of Jesus Christ's perspective; much. Shari'a law does not respect the love of Jesus Christ in His sacrificial capacity as the Anointed One, sent to redeem a believing population from the debt of sin that is part of all mortal humanity. Shari'a law does not honor the work of Jesus Christ in His capacity as the mediator between mankind that needs a mediator and the Holy Heavenly Father that has offered His only Son for our salvation. You have repeatedly denied that: that is your choice; but not the choice of the people who have decided in favor of Jesus Christ whom you would castigate.

And while you continue in trying to make the argument that the United States as an inherently evil entity, the mistake in making that assertion is that people are responsible for the government they choose to follow: some for good and others not so. The government given is decided by Almighty God in response to the faith of the people. Israel is a really good example of that. So is the United States.

And for the record, Jesus Christ did make provision for home protection, as followed by the Second Amendment in The Constitution of the United States. But I'll leave that for others to ponder.

You may admit all you wish that you have lifelong prejudices against America; some I suspect taught, others as you have built your ideology along the lines of your predecessors and the prevailing dogma of the Quran. But it does not fare well that you try making your assertions in the face of Biblical evidence that will prove otherwise. That is your choice; and I have mine.

But, by the way, America will not be the final solver of the world's problems: but I suspect you do not believe that either.
