Religion of Peace?

What type of religion advocates violence, deception, and even murder? Apparently, Islam does! According to a recent Yahoo news report: “. . . on Friday, an Afghan police officer opened fire on four American soldiers he had invited for a meal, killing three of them, Afghan officials said. . . ” Guess what guys? Happy Ramadan! You’re dead! If you can’t imagine such a horrible act of evil, then you just don’t know what Islam is capable of. Muslims are NOT bad people! They deserve the same respect as anyone else. Their beliefs, on the other hand, are not so respectful. All one has to do is read their book and see for oneself. Jesus loves Muslims with the same love that He has for anyone else! Now, we need to see why they should be confronted with facts, and we should not stick our collective head in the sand. There are many factual, objective books to read. Here are a few: Religion of Peace, by Gregory Davis; Why We Left Islam, edited by Crimp & Richardson; The Sword of the Prophet, by Serge Trifkovic; Miraculous Movements, by Jerry Trousdale, among many, many other informative books. Try also searching for Walid Shoebat and Brigitte Gabriel, to name a few qualified, first hand, sources. Don’t hide your light under a basket!

Violence via Doctors?

If we are against violence, harm to others, and most of all, against death; why are we looking the other way when it comes to “Iatrogenic deaths”? “Do thy patient no harm” has gone down with the golden age of Greece, apparently. This video presentation casts much needed light on the whole concept of treating disease and healing. The Christian believer needs to take a serious look at these issues.

Ministries: Who Can We Trust?

The Scriptures are trustworthy, but who can you trust to interpret them? Since the Prophets, Pastors, Teachers, and
Evangelists disagree; it comes down to personal responsibility, action, and fruit bearing faith action. The difficult part is following Christ Jesus without getting caught up in following a ministry INSTEAD of Jesus! The proof of that unpleasant fact is often found in the initial question Christians ask one another when they meet for the first time: “What church (denomination) do you go to? Who are you with? What ministry are you with? This is just a regurgitation of the Apostle Paul’s complaint/warning in 1Cor. 1:12 where he describes a fractured community of believers. Apparently, we have not got that message! Where does that leave us? Back at the beginning, like the Bereans, testing the ministries to see if THEY are true and to what extent!
