Reader comment on item: Jihad through History
in response to reader comment: Hostile Islam: The Biblical Perspective

Submitted by Ric (Canada), Feb 4, 2006 at 21:06

you make a great point here. The future of christianity depends on adhering to the principles of mercy and turning the other cheek. unfortunately as the bible say's "there is a way which seems right to a man but the end thereof is death" It is so easy as humans to get caught up iin the hatred of evil. It seems right to me as a man to stand up against terrorism, but i find the hatred of these islamists building up in me to such an extent , that under the right circumstances,which the world seems destined to, i could see myself blowing those bastards away. I think that is the islamists tactic. Fill the world with so much horror that the world rises up and in response , becomes just like them.Die in hatred and add our souls to the minions of the devil. It is very hard to extricate oneself from the political scene when we see so many innocent people being killed every day . As a man it seems right to form a crusade against these murders, those ishmaelites,those jebusites, but i know in doing so, i will have become one of them.I hope that my personal history will be written in God's annals as a vessel of mercy.Thank God from the world that he introduced into the human psyche the divine concepts of turning the other cheek,and loving our enemies. It is "foolishness to the world" and it makes me wonder just how many people have allowed that Spirit of thought to govern their lives.

I don't think there is that many , so it won't be a walk in the park for the islamists to realise their world domination aspirations.
It is hard not to be caught up in world affairs when one sees how the world is being ravaged by the insane islamists, But as Jesus said "we are in this world but not of this world" As far as i am concerned , The islamists can have it. It is the domain of the devil.
When the devil offered the riches of the world Jesus turned it down, but apparently mohamed accepted and now we are seeing that realised through i SLAM

I have seen so many "christian" forums, as well as myself espousing hatred towards the lie of i SLAM. Remember the forces of darkness are very clever, and will try and decieve you into thinking that you are defending the one true God. Forget it , Our only personal defence is the cross of self denial. The wisdom of God, and our ultimate salvation from this world of devilish affairs
