A Hate Religion
I am reminded once again that Islam is a hate religion that is very violent. There has been in the news a young girl in Ohio that was converted out of Islam and was fearful to return home that her parents would kill her for her conversion. I read about a young man in an African Muslim nation that Bob Buchanon baptized recently the past couple of weeks. It was suggested that if you write him on Facebook (the social network on the Internet) that you write him personally. I added him as a friend so I could drop him a note. I must of done it wrong in writing him, for I thought I was sending it to him alone; and he said that if his sister saw the note that she was tell their parents and that they would kill him. This brand of Islam is found in many parts of the world. It is a religion of violence and hatred. They claim that Allah (God) wants them to behave in this manner. As with Catholicism, when it holds a great sway in a society, they like to stomp out competition. Not by intellectual reasoning from the Divine truth but by violence, and censorship. The sword has advanced Islam in many places through the centuries. In Christianity, open investigation has propagated our cause greatly through the centuries. Jesus said, "and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Jn.8:32. "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh (for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds), casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;" 2 Cor.10:3-5. We do not use carnal, fleshly weapons in fighting error, but the sword of the Lord, the word of truth! Speaking the truth in love, as we contend for the truth, this is our method of teaching, not hate and violence.
