Democrats Compare Christianity to Islam, but is there a bigger meaning?

cross-1448946_1920

A recent poll found that a majority of Democrats believe Christianity is as violent as Islam.   Ludicrous? Crazy? Certainly but there is more to the story.  I would like to take you back over 2000 years ago as we consider for a moment another “poll” and ultimately a verdict reached by a majority of people.

Barabbas or Jesus

[The following is from Mark 15:7-15

And there was one named Barabbas, who was chained with his fellow rebels; they had committed murder in the rebellion.
 Then the multitude, crying aloud, began to ask him to do just as he had always done for them.
But Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?”For he knew that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.
 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should rather release Barabbas to them.
Pilate answered and said to them again, “What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?”
 So they cried out again, “Crucify Him!”
Then Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, “Crucify Him!”
So Pilate, wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them; and he delivered Jesus, after he had scourged Him, to be crucified. ]

A murderer by the name of Barabbas was chosen by the people instead of a peacemaker.  Jesus Christ the only true Peacemaker was put on trial and found not guilty yet was murdered in the place of a murderer.   When Jesus was standing before Pilate, the crowd began chanting “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!”   Are we any different today?  Has our hearts changed or are we seeking again the murderer instead of the Peacemaker?

Like a Mirror

As God Himself, Jesus Christ willingly died to pay the penalty of us breaking God’s law.   Check this out.   Ever lied?  Stolen something even something small?  Ever lusted after another person? Jesus said lust is the same committing adultery in the heart.  Always put God first in your life?  Ever taken God’s name and used it as a cuss word?  Muhammad and Hitler are not even hated as much to use their names to express disgust.

These questions reflect just a part of the Ten Commandments.  They (the Ten Commandments) are a mirror showing us how we have all broken God’s law.  We deserve Hell.  We cannot keep God’s law and yet God demands perfection and complete holiness to enter Heaven. (In other words a person who could fulfill the whole law perfectly could enter Heaven).

Hope

God provided the perfect sacrifice, the one person who has ever been perfect and be sinless.  Of course only God Himself is the only One who could fulfill this.  Therefore as God in human form, Jesus Christ paid a penalty we could never pay so that all who repent and trust in Him alone can enter Heaven.   Jesus rose again after three days in the grave defeating death (the second death, Hell – see Revelation 21:8).

“The cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”   Revelation 21:8

So whether we think Christianity is like Islam or not, there is still hope.   Our once broken relationship with God can be restored because of what Jesus Christ has done for us!

“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  Romans 5:8

Why are so many people quick to protect murderers?

good_evil

It needs to be pointed out that not all people who call themselves Muslim in actuality are.  And likewise not all people who say they are Christian are actually followers of Jesus.  Of course, this would be true in all belief systems.  In light of this knowledge, I believe it would be fair to say that a true Muslim is one who first and foremost follows Muhammad (which includes his actions and beliefs) and also follow the basic tenets of the Islamic religion.     And this is why the graphic below is so frightening to me and should be frightening to all non-Muslims (Kafirs).

So why are there are so many people not standing up against this evil that is being perpetrated against humanity?   I believe the answer is simple.  It is because they don’t believe that what is being done is evil (they hate the God of the Bible too) and therefore have become part of the problem.  And some people may not believe that it’s evil enough to care.  While others are ignorant of the facts about what Muhammad did and what his current followers do to non-Muslims.   Still others are just afraid to say what they believe.  We shouldn’t be afraid.  We must stand against evil and sin (breaking God’s commands).

The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.”  Proverbs 8:13

Whatever category we fall under, the Bible predicts terrible times ahead.   I hope you are ready before it’s too late and will escape the wrath to come.   Hope has come into the world and His name is Jesus.  www.areyougood.us

Roseburg Shooter hated the God of the Bible

roseburg

After the shooting that took place in Roseburg Oregon today at a community college there, Barrack Obama blamed the shooting on the lack of gun laws in place.  Even though the identity of the murderer has not been released yet, one thing is for certain:  the shooter was not a Christian.   However,  if it turns out that the shooter was a Muslim, I and many other people know gun laws will have nothing to do with whether murder is carried out or not.    People who have determined to murder someone else do not care about a gun law or not.  People who hate God, Christians and Jews don’t care whether a gun law in place makes it difficult to get a gun or not.  Terrorists are terrorists because they already have access to whatever they need to inflict harm on others.  Until we all understand this simple reality, we can never begin to get a handle on shootings, and mass murders.  Until we understand that evil exists in the hearts of all men and that we all by nature are hostile to God without Jesus Christ, we are going to continue be subject to continued madness in this world.  Unless we each humble ourselves before Almighty God, repent of our sins against Him and put our complete trust in Him through Jesus Christ, we can never escape coming Judgment.   Will you be ready?

It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.  Hebrews 9:27

“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”    John 3:36
