Hatred Islam’s war on Christianity

Whitefox_AvatarRay: Michael Coren has just written a new book called “Hatred – Islam’s war on Christianity. He introduces his book in the following video.

I must say that I know Muslims who wish to distance themselves from this form of Islam. They too share concern about it. However, perhaps its time to leave the Muslim faith and to find a more loving one. I am biased however as a Christian in making that comment.

Jesus said “Love your enemies”. The Quran says that Jesus is a prophet of Islam. They are disobeying Jesus command if they show hatred rather than the Love that Jesus taught. Please read the Bible if you are Muslim. particularly read the New Testament and learn about Jesus and what he taught.

I am interested in anyone defending their view of this topic. I will not post comments however that include foul language or are threatening in nature.

Life after death and Quran vs Bible

Whitefox_AvatarRay: In the first part of this program we discussed briefly near death experiences. (first 16 minutes)

In the second part of our discussion featured a special guest who we are calling Matthew. Matthew specializes in researching the Muslim faith with the purpose of finding ways to convert Muslims to the Christian faith. The Quran and the Hadits are quoted specifically in this portion of the program. (1 hour interview).

We would encourage Muslims to respond and make comments on this program. Please comment if you are such a person. We would like to engage you. We want to state that we love all persons. We might want to argue about beliefs but we wish those that don’t agree with us no ill will.

Escape from Hamas

Whitefox_AvatarRay: On our next show on Truth is what matters we are going to discuss the comparison of the Quran with the Bible.

In preparation for that show I have posted a link to a fox news documentary called “Escape from Hamas”. This documentary interviews Mousaf San Yousef the son of a Hamas leader. He details how by studying the Bible and comparing it to the Quran he realized that the truth lies in the Bible and not in the Quran.

Keep Sharia Law out of Western Nations

picture-3552Ray: This is a video I found on the internet. The author of this video is Dr. Johnathon Matusits. I welcome all to comment. Especially if you a are a Muslim and you would like to counter this mans view of Islam.

This fellow raises the issue of Polygamy. I am told there are over 100 polygamous Muslim families in Toronto.

This fellow raises the issue of the secularization of the West. The west has to a large extent rejected Christianity.

He did not say this, I say this following statement. The result has been a lowering of moral standards which causes moral degradation. It is our lack of morals in other areas such as the genocide of our unborn that causes Islam to see the imposition of Sharia as a solution to raise the moral standard of our society. Christians in my opinion who are to be the salt of the earth must stand up stronger to protect Judeo / Christian Godly morals in our society. If they do not the void will eventually be filled with foreign laws. God has often used foreigners to chastise the Jew in the past into obedience of His laws. God I believe is allowing the west to be chastised by foreign laws and peoples bringing us their form of moral codes.

Deuteronomy 31 – 16 And the Lord said unto Moses, “Behold, you shall sleep with your fathers; and these people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the foreigners of the land, to which they go to be among them, and will forsake Me, and break My covenant which I have made with them. 17 Then My anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide My face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall (find) them; so that they will say in that day, ‘Are not these evil come upon us because our God is not among us?’ 18 And I will surely hide My face in that day for all the evils which they shall have worked, in that they are turned unto other gods. – SKJV (Simplified King James Version)

Allah is not just another name for God, Allah is a foreign god. Sharia is not Judeo Christian it is diametrically opposed in many ways to Judeo Christian law which the west has been established upon.

There are three religions currently at play in the west. The largest religion currently is Secular Humanism, The second one is Christianity and now we have Islam raising its head. If you are a secular humanist then you would like to see all other Gods Allah or the God of the Bible eradicated in western thought and laws. The void however you would like to create is making room for the foreign god Allah.

Christianity is Feared

Ray: I ran in the 2008 Election as a candidate for the CHP Party in the Newmarket/ Aurora riding. I feel I should disclose this when promoting something the leader has to say. Because this article touched on matters of truth as promoted by Christians I thought it was an article that is worthy of repeating in our Blog. As always I welcome the comments of others. Let us know what you think of Jim’s article.

By Jim Hnatiuk – Leader of the Christian Heritage Party CHP Communiqué Vol 19, No 38, Sept 18, 2012
www.chp.ca

There is a huge difference between the open, honest exchange of ideas in a public debate and the indoctrination of a society through the use of manipulative propaganda.

The free market exchange of ideas is considered a “given” in countries like Canada, the United States, Great Britain, and many other countries that have democracies grounded in the rule of law. This freedom is what most of us have grown up with, it’s what we have come to expect, and we may even think it absurd if anyone suggests that Canada allows any less.

In contrast, Sharia-governed countries—like Iran today—will imprison or sentence to death those speaking what they believe to be true. But then again, Iran is on the other side of the world—isn’t it?

The Soviet Union had a long history of state atheism, which suppressed public expression over wide areas of its influence.

The atheist Mexican state in 1917 enacted enormous restrictions targeting the Catholic Church; one prohibition was even meant to keep Catholics from being educated in their own religion. Could that ever happen in Canada?

In 1793, Anacharsis Cloots, an atheistic French politician, declared that “Reason” and “Truth” were “supremely intolerant.” Was Cloots saying that truth was wrong? How ridiculous! But, maybe not. Wasn’t it just a few years ago our Canadian Human Rights Commission ruled that “Truth is no defence?”

So who or what represents Truth? Well, we know that Christianity certainly does. Christianity is the baseline of truth and thus is feared worldwide by those who mean to control others. In fact, Christians are persecuted worldwide, not because they are intolerant of others, but rather because they represent truth, and they, and others who understand truth, want to see that it is expressed in the free market exchange of ideas. Those who want to control people feel that the truth must be suppressed; dictators seek control of all public media so that they can silence any truth which they find inconvenient or embarrassing. They want to get rid of the Christians and, for that matter, get rid of anyone who demonstrates sympathy or admiration for Judeo-Christian values and principles.

Those of us who represent the Christian Heritage Party of Canada are indeed walking the high road because CHP Canada believes that the truth must be heard and restored within the educational, judicial, and legislative systems of our nation. Our party is not intolerant, it is not radically “right wing;” rather it is right on!

Should people fear our biblical values? You bet! Those people who want to control and intimidate the citizens of Canada will naturally fear the revealing light of the truth. On the other hand, those who love the truth should welcome an honest public debate about the issues facing our nation today. Both groups, those who fear the truth and those who welcome the debate, deserve to know something: CHP Canada is growing, our members are organizing, and we who love the truth are coming to take back our wonderful nation and to defend the principles upon which it was founded, principles—as stated in the Preamble to Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms— “that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.” Won’t you join your voice with ours?

The time to get into the battle is now. Join the Christian Heritage Party of Canada and make your stand for freedom, a glorious part of our blessed Christian heritage.

Enough Of The Scientology Circus Already with Tom and Kate

 BRAD: Don’t we ever get enough of this celebrity circus surrounding Tom Cruise and Kate Holmes! According to this article the Scientologists are leaving the so called church because of this celebrity break up! Whoever said that Scientology was a religion anyways and its congregation were mind controlled androids?.

Lets give the church back to preachers of the gospel who have backgrounds in theology and scholar teachings and not follow the ramblings of a  comatose ex science fiction writer!

Canadian Yahoo.com News reports:
The Katie Holmes-Tom Cruise split apparently has had a negative effect on the Church of Scientology, and a faction of the church is calling for members to take action and silence naysayers.

The campaign also comes as an entire mission for the church has defected from under the leadership of David Miscavige, reports the Village Voice. Leader Dani Lemberger of Israel’s Dror Center, in Haifa, told Voice blogger Tony Ortega that his mission is one of the few that are still growing and announced that it is rejecting Miscavige’s leadership.

It is the “first time in memory” that an entire mission has announced that it is leaving the church, Ortega said.

RAY: The Bible describes a Church as a gathering of people unto the Lord Jesus Christ. There are many groups which experience a mass exodus that are not churches according to the biblical definition of a church. (Last week we were mentioning a mass exodus from the Mormon Church which also is not a true church).

I am not particularly glad when I hear about a mass exodus  of people. However, I would be glad if I heard the people were doing so in order to join the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mormons Leaving The Church WHY?

BRAD: According to this article a lot of Mormons are starting to leave the church in droves. Some of the reasons are gay marriages, and polygamy.

SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) – A group of about 150 Mormons quit their church in a mass resignation ceremony in Salt Lake City on Saturday in a rare display of defiance ending decades of disagreement for some over issues ranging from polygamy to gay marriage.

Participants from Utah, Arizona, Idaho and elsewhere gathered in a public park to sign a “Declaration of Independence from Mormonism.”

“This feels awesome,” said Alison Lucas, from West Jordan, Utah, who took part in the rally amid soaring temperatures. “I don’t know if I would have had the courage except in a group.”

The Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is known for its culture of obedience, and the mass ceremony was a seldom-seen act of collective revolt.

After gathering in the park, participants hiked a half-mile up nearby Ensign Peak, scaled in 1847 by church President Brigham Young to survey the spot where his Latter-day Saints would build a city.

At the top, those gathered gave three loud shouts of “Freedom,” cheered, clapped and hugged.

“It’s been a hard journey and this is a symbolic end,” said event organizer Zilpha Larsen, of Lehi, Utah. “I just hope that it boosts people up and helps them feel more comfortable in their decision.”

The church bills itself as the one “true” Christian faith, and its theology promises families eternal relationships among those who remain faithful, sealing those gifts through special religious rites.

Among the reasons cited by those resigning are the church’s political activism against gay marriage and doctrinal teachings that conflict with scientific findings or are perceived as racist or sexist.

Others cite inconsistencies in the Mormons’ explanation of its own history, including the practice of polygamy. The church renounced plural marriage over a century ago as Utah was seeking statehood.

(full article –> http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/01/us-usa-utah-mormons-idUSBRE86000N20120701 )

RAY: I wonder if some are leaving because they want Polygamy and want Homosexuality as norms to follow or if it is in rejection of these practices. Mormons over the years have separated from the main LDS church in order to pursue Polygamy which was one of the original sanctioned lifestyle choices of the Mormon church when it formed in the 1800’s.

It must be remembered that Mormons already left the true church that is described in the Holy Bible when they followed Joseph Smith and the book of Mormon which is extra-biblical.

No matter what church whether Mormon or any other you belong to, you may not be part of the true church of God even if you regularly attend church services. The true church (body) of Christ is comprised of those who have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and who have received the pledge of their salvation.  Many have not received this pledge (called earnest in the KJV & SKJV).

Eph 1 - 13 IN whom you also trusted, after you heard the Word of truth, 
the gospel of your salvation: in whom also having believed, you were sealed 
with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the earnest (gift which guarantees 
the pledge) of our inheritance, until the redemption of the purchased 
possession, to the praise of His glory. (SKJV)

The Truth about Islam (Mohammedism)

The Encyclopaedia Britannica defines Islam as follows:
A major world religion belonging to the Semitic family; it was promulgated by the Prophet Muḥammad in Arabia in the 7th century AD. The Arabic term islām, literally “surrender,” illuminates the fundamental religious idea of Islām—that the believer (called a Muslim, from the active particle of islām) accepts “surrender to the will of Allāh (Arabic: God).” Allāh is viewed as the sole God—creator, sustainer, and restorer of the world. The will of Allāh, to which man must submit, is made known through the sacred scriptures, the Qurʾān (Koran), which Allāh revealed to his messenger, Muḥammad.

Jews and Christians were assigned a special status as communities possessing scriptures and were called the “people of the Book” (ahlal-kitāb) and, therefore, were allowed religious autonomy. They were, however, required to pay a per capita tax called jizyah, as opposed to pagans, who were required to either accept Islām or die.

With the loss of political power during the period of Western colonialism in the 19th and 20th centuries, the concept of the Islāmic community (ummah), instead of weakening, became stronger. The faith of Islām helped various Muslim peoples in their struggle to gain political freedom in the mid-20th century, and the unity of Islām contributed to later political solidarity.

Islām. (2009). Encyclopædia Britannica. Encyclopædia Britannica 2009 Ultimate Reference Suite. Chicago: Encyclopædia Britannica.


RAY: While historically the Islamists may have treated “people of the book” better than pagans, they were always given permission by their holy book the Quran to convert all non Muslims peaceably if possible and if they would not convert to force them to by any means.

Sura 5:51 O you who believe! Do not take the Jews or Christians for freinds; 
they are friends of each other, and whoever among you takes them for a friend, 
then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

Sura 9:5 So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters 
whenever you find them, and take them captives and beseige them and lie in wait 
for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the 
poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is forgiving, merciful.

Our attempts to assist the Muslim countries to gain political independence from represive regimes are seen as successes at bringing back Islamic community (ummah) in which the independence will also be from the western influences. This could backfire as their scriptures still tell them not to befriend us but to attack in a time when we do not expect it.

There are several branches of Islam. The ones coming to the west tend to ignore these verses of their Quran. However the west is also a breeding ground for “fundamentalist muslims” who believe what their Quran says and are willing to act upon it. Generally it is the younger generations who are willing to be radicalized by the fundamentalist teachers of Islam.

I am not advocting a lack of love toward followers of Islam in relating this truth about the Islamic religion but I would advocate continued concern about those that wish to act upon these teachings that are contained in their holy book. I would hope that the leaders of the Islamic communities in Toronto near where I live will keep their young people from becoming radicallized.

By way of contrast Jesus taught that we are to convince others to follow Him but not by the sword.  Peter was told to put his sword away and Jesus healed the centurion that he cut the ear from. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the gospel creating disciples of all nations. The sword given to the Christian for doing this is the tongue. The Bible says that the Word is mightier than a two-edged sword.

Heb 4 - 12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any 
twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of 
the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Wheras there is much to be feared of Islamists who adhere to the fundamentals of their faith, there is nothing to fear of Christians that hold to the fundamentals of their faith other than the fear of God which may be instilled by the Holy Ghost in those that hear the words of their Holy Bible.

BRAD: I don’t really know where there is a passage that exactly says that Muslims are excused for killing Christians. In this world of different religions and multi culturalism, acceptance of people with religious beliefs despite their views, are supposed to respect each other according to the bible. To center one religion as the driving force behind world events can be costly and dangerous, and until we fully understand each others religious values we must be open to all views and practices of each other.

RAY: Christianity as promoted by the Christian Bible proclaims that the only way for a person to obtain eternal life is through God’s son the Lord Jesus Christ.

John 3 - 16 FOR God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, 
that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 
17 For God did not sent His Son into the world to condemn the world; but 
that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes on Him is 
not condemned: but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he 
has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

The  Bible does not single out one of man’s religions over another.  It speaks out equally against all of man’s religions, false science and false philosophies by declaring its solution to man’s eternal state as the only one and it makes allowance for none other.

Jesus said,

John 14 - 6 I am the way the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father 
but by Me.

God allows man to make his own choices. In that manner He respects the religious views of His created beings but He never stops warning men that their views are wrong when they fail to align with His views. Also Christians are told to warn others as well.
