The Latest From "The Religion of Peace"

These lovely signs are from a protest in London, England - not Tehran!! Listen, if I'm ever going to threaten to cut off someone's head, I'm at least going to be man enough to show my face.

All of this is a response to a series of cartoons making fun of Islam in a Danish paper. I get irked when Christianity is mocked (which it routinely is) and I will write letters, blog, boycott, etc. But what you see above is from the devil. Let's be honest.

For a good read, check out The Great Divide: The failure of Islam and the Triumph of the West by Alvin Schmidt.

I could not care less about this!
They get exactly what they deserve for resisting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Of course, these insults are nothing compared to what they *will* get should they continue to reject the only Savior of all sinners, including us!!! Amen

Carl - your remarks are troublesome. For a Christian to say they could care less that a human is rejecting Christ is even more insulting than the signs presented in Pastor Scott's blog.

Pastor Scott - As I know you are aware, the actions of a radical group of any organization or religion cannot be confused with the true message of that particular organization. As Carl has displayed nicely for us, the are plenty of radical Christians who misuse our knowledge of Truth that in turn persuades others that Christianity is a message of hate, not love. It is a good thing when people of faith, like you, respond to mockery with "letters, blog, boycott, etc.", but let's be honest, there are many Christians who do not respond that way, who respond in similar fashion to the images you have posted. Do those who react that way make the sincerety of genuine Christians less true? Of course not. So, although Islam is certainly a religion that misses the mark in terms of the Truth, I think we have to be careful when we characterize the hearts of people by the actions of radicals. (Which, by the way, I don't think you did in your blog. It seems you were referring only to those presented in this particular instance. Just food for thought.)

The Beast,
Yes, you are right. I reacted too strongly to this and out of frustration. Forgive me. And Scott, I request that you pull my post. I did not mean to imply that I couldn't care less about a human being rejecting Christ.

Are not these signs paraphrasing the Koran? Does not this "peaceful religion" from its own holy book call for death to the infidels? Should we not expect the adherents of a religion to really adhere to what their "Book" teaches them? BUT, it is another opportunity for us to call upon the name of the LORD Christ. To pray for the Word to continue to be brought by the Spirit to all the world...that more would come to believe in the Son of the Triune God and be marked by our heavenly Father as one redeemed by Christ the Crucified. "Thy Kingdom Come" - O Lord: "God's kingdom comes when our heavenly Father gives us His Holy Spirit, so that by His grace we believe His holy Word and lead godly lives here in time and there in eternity."
