2015: “the most violent and sustained attack on Christian faith in modern history,”
Majority Muslim countries are slaughtering to the point of genocide, enslaving and imprisoning Christians all over the world. Now in the west, Christians are experiencing more hate and discrimination than at any other time in history.
Why does Obama chastise Christians and defend, excuse and support Muslims? Why is the world in general, at best ignoring, at worst culpable to the ongoing Christian genocide taking place in many parts of the world.
What have Christians been doing to deserve the worlds disdain? Being kidnapped, murdered, raped, burned alive, crucified, beheaded, enslaved and imprisoned. Just this week 12 Christians in India, including a blind man, his wife and 3 year old child, where arrested for “converting to Christianity” by Hindu authorities.
Muslim majority countries have no tolerance for Christians either and are severely persecuting converts to the point of extinction. Of the ten top Christians hating countries , 9 are Muslim majority;
- North Korea; Communist tyranny, has 50-70,000 Christians in labor camps
- Iraq; Muslim
- Eritrea; Muslim
- Afghanistan; Muslim
- Syria; Muslim
- Pakistan; Muslim
- Somalia; Muslim
- Sudan; Muslim
- Iran; Muslim
- Libya; Muslim
Muslim refugees are being welcomed to the west by the millions, while Christians are left to be brutalized and murdered. Barack Obama’s refugee program has been overtly Muslim-centric, as only 3% of Syrian refugees admitted to the US have been Christians. Christians, who hold the same values as the west and are supportive of western laws are shunned, while Muslims who support Sharia law are welcomed without restraint.
According to PEW Research, 50% of Muslims believe Sharia Law is not law by man but the handed down word of god. This is evident with the problems the United Kingdom and Europe are having with Muslim communities demanding Sharia Law be recognized.
- Sharia Law Integrated with UK Law
- Europe: “You Are Entering a Sharia Controlled Zone”
- Is Sharia Law Compatible with Democracy?
What is it that makes countries and individuals hate Christians so much? Could it be that those who follow Christ give their lives for others, give their time talents and money to the less fortunate, forgive those who persecute them and love those who hate them. Or maybe it is that they ascribe to dignity, liberty and freedom for everyone, including the freedom of religion or no religion. For some countries, the Christian belief in a higher power than the government is the issue.
Yes, there may be some sects who call themselves Christian who do not exemplify the above hallmarks that identify with Christ’s teachings, but why is Christianity as a whole held responsible for a few who may disgrace themselves and Christ? Why is it OK to hate and discriminate against Christians in general but other religions, such as Muslims get an understanding pass ?
There are Muslim’s all over the world killing, raping bombing, crucifying, beheading, enslaving and brutalizing in the name of Islam. Many Muslims proclaim that Islam will take over the world and many say any who won’t convert will die. Why is the world falling all over itself defending the Muslim religion as apologists for Islam in the face of the abundance of atrocities enacted in the name of Islam, while Christian genocide is ignored? The double standard is striking.
A recent story out of Youhanabad Pakistan illustrates the stark contrast between radical Christianity and radical Islam. A 20 year old Christian, Akash Bashir, grabbed a Muslim bomber, preventing him from gaining access to St. John’s Church during Sunday services on March 15. Many Christians were killed and many more wounded but Akash Bashir, undoubtedly saved countless lives that day by giving his own.
The Quran speaks of world domination and the killing of all infidels who don’t convert to Islam. Yes, it speaks of the wrong of killing “innocents”, but who are the innocents? Muslims who conform. In contrast, what does the Christian book of Matthew Chapter 10 verse 14 say about those who reject Christianity? Christ speaking;
“If any household or town refuses to welcome you or listen to your message, shake its dust from your feet as you leave.”
Luke chapter 6, verses 27 through 31
“But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, offer the other cheek also. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also. Give to anyone who asks; and when things are taken away from you, don’t try to get them back. Do to others as you would like them to do to you.”
Jesus unmistakably taught that God alone dispenses justice. Vengeance is mine says the Lord. The radical Muslim will kill anyone in defense of their profit, Jesus says he will defend himself. The radical Muslim will kill or enslave those who do not convert to Islam. Christians are not taught to persuade or coerce converts by violence or speech. Yes, during the crusades, religious leaders did just that but now that the word of God is available to all, it is clear their motives were not aligned with God’s, but had much more to do with corruption, power and control over people.
These crusades are what Obama cited as Christian atrocities while in contrast, scolding Americans for holding Muslims accountable for Islamic terrorism.
The apostle Paul made a statement in the book of 1 Corinthians about being careful to not even use persuasive language to convince others to convert to Christianity. The radical Christian relies on the power of God to effect authentic change within a persons heart that will then effect their behavior. The radical Muslim relies on fear of physical violence and coercion.
1 Corinthians chapter 1, verse 17
“For Christ didn’t send me to baptize, but to preach the Good News—and not with clever speech, for fear that the cross of Christ would lose its power.”
As in all religions, institutions and governments, frankly anywhere power is to be had, there will be corruption and those who will seek power to suit their own selfish agendas.
Since 9/11 there have been tens of thousands of Muslim attacks in the name of Islam. Tens of thousands of people have been killed, raped, sold, tortured, enslaved and imprisoned. According the the religion of peace website, there has been over 27,600 Muslim terrorist attacks since 9/11.
Now to end any doubt about what Jesus Christ taught about behavior towards others, he takes it to another level. Jesus moves the standard of behavior from actions of the body to motives and the heart.
Matthew chapter 5, verses 21,22, 27,28
“You have heard that our ancestors were told, ‘You must not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment. But I say, if you are even angry with someone,e you are subject to judgment!”
“You have heard the commandment that says, ‘You must not commit adultery. But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
I am not saying that all Muslims are violent, but there are a significant number who believe their violence is supported, even demanded by the Quran and fundamental Islam. Violent subjugation is not the cry of fundamentalist Christians.
Many may in a desperate attempt, to compare the killings of abortion providers to fundamentalist Christians, with ISIS, as if there can be any comparison to the lives Islam has taken, and the numbers of individuals involved in the terrorist activities.
Adopting this position makes them guilty of exactly what they accuse others of doing to the Muslim community. Or, you may have to go all the way back to the crusades for ammunition against Christians but that is also folly for reasons stated above.
Christians are being slaughtered by Muslims in Islamic controlled states. These radicals come and go with politically correct impunity to the detriment of western values and society. Conversely, no one is vetting refugees for fear of admitting Christians.
