But, I...


What I wrote about yesterday in Fundamental Truths, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), leads me to discuss the fact that most of the terrorist attacks happening throughout our world today, seem to be made by Muslims.

Please understand, I do not think that every Muslim is a terrorist.  I realize that some who follow Islam are not what I would call a true believer, but only if they truly are non-fundamentalists or what some would call... nominal Muslims.  Muslims who really don't follow their faith.

If they are true believers in Islam, then they believe, follow and teach what their holy books state and teach.  Not just what is in the Qur'an, either.

Think about the Tsarnaev family for instance.  The brothers are being blamed for the Boston Marathon bombing, recently.  As you know, the older brother died, while the younger brother was arrested. 

Now, there are articles suggesting their mother may have had some involvement, if not in the bombing itself, in the teaching and hatred towards infidels... non-Muslims.

Here is an article that was posted online by End Time Headlines, entitled:  Tsarnaev family recived $100G in Benefits:  http://endtimeheadlines.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/tsarnaev-family-received-100g-in-benefits/

Hopefully, you will read the article.  You will see that even though the mother and two (2) sons have lived in USA, and been supported by the American government programmes, they were filled with hate.

Hate, that is promoted and taught in Islam, is directed to all infidels.  Us.  We, who are not following Islam.

If there was no hatred in Islam, then why would Pastor Saeed  Abedini, be imprisoned in Iran? 

He is a man who was born a Muslim, who converted Christianity.  A man, who left his wife and children at their home in USA, to visit Iran, where he was from, originally. 

He was arrested and imprisoned, solely because he is no longer Muslim.  Because, he is now Christian.  And, a pastor.

Please click on this link for American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), to read an article which talks about how Pastor Abedini has been tortured during his imprisonment.  And, now... he has been placed into solitary confinement.  http://aclj.org/iran/american-pastor-saeed-abedini-thrown-into-solitary-confinement-in-iran-health-deteriorating

Is he the only person who has experienced this?  Absolutely, not.  There are others, and there have been others.

I was reading a blog posted by a Christian writer, called The Cross In The Desert.  The article posted April 2, 2013 was entitled, No One Hears Our Voices:   http://thecrossinthedesert.blogspot.ca/2013/04/no-one-hears-our-voices.html?m=1

In this article, you'll read about how they had been imprisoned, and how other women sentenced to die, were treated.  Beaten and tortured, one woman wrote about how she was treated, so that after her death (a few days later), others would be able to hear how she had been treated.

The Christian women who were imprisoned, and later released, prayed.  They prayed not just for themselves, but also for all persecuted.

After all, that's what God told us to do, in Matthew 5:43-44, "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;".

While I pray for all who are persecuted, I also pray for those who are doing the persecution.

And, even though I do my best to educate others with the truth regarding Islam, I am kind and loving to Muslim friends, and to all who I meet.  After all, my hope is for all to come to Christ.


Until next time...
