Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I want to make something clear. I do not hate Muslims. Nor, do I hate those who are condemning, with regards to those who speak up about the truth of Islam.
I believe that since Jesus spoke truth, and told people to go... and sin no more, we born-again Christians need to do the same.
And, of course, forgive them and pray for them.
With regard to speaking truth, I am also glad to know that some media people are not afraid to speak up. Praise God! May they be blessed, for speaking truth.
Here is an article printed April 19th, in the newspaper The Times of India (US version), Boston bombing suspect's 'world view' was Islam, 'priority' money: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/world/us/Boston-bombing-suspects-world-view-was-Islam-priority-money/articleshow/19638158.cms
On April 19th, here in Canada, The Globe and Mail posted the following article entitled, More details emerge, shedding light on lives of bombing suspects: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/details-emerge-from-lives-of-boston-bombing-suspects/article11401463/
Both articles confirm that my suspicians were correct. The bombers were in fact, Islamic.
Praise God! Hallelujah! The suspect was caught! Here's the article posted on USA Today, in the evening of April 19th entitled, Manhunt over, bombing suspect alive and in custody that also confirms the suspect has Islamic values: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/04/19/suspect-in-custody-newspaper-says/2095845/
What concerns me, isn't just the fact that these terrorist activities happen.
I realize there are many people out there who refuse to accept that Islam is not truly a religion, but also a way of life. A way of life that is being forced upon people, practically all over the world, in various ways.
A way of life, that at the moment is not in control of the whole world. But, a way of life, that as their participants grow, and as they remove infidels from this world, will dominate. Just as they teach.
My concern in this entry, is this: who is helping them? Who is assisting Islam, by putting those down, who speak for truth? By putting down people, like me.
Who is assisting them, by teaching false gospels? False gospels that separate people in Christianity.
Separation isn't good. It always divides. And a house divided against itself cannot stand, just as God told us in His Word, the Bible.
In my opinion, preachers/teachers who are preaching a false gospel, and leading people away from the truth of God's Word, are not working for God, but rather, against Him.
Why do I think this? Because of 2 Peter 2:1-3, "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."
You read it. There definitely are false preachers/teachers/prophets. .
Not rightly dividing God's Word, and teaching falsely will not just separate the church, but it also leads people astray.
Due to this false teaching/preaching, there will be many who believe they will go to heaven when they die. Unfortunately, they will stand before Christ in the day of judgement and be told to get away from Him, He never knew them.
Just as God told us in verse 3, some people put us down, to the point where we are made out to be of no value. Just something/someone to be put aside. Discarded, like merchandise, unwanted and unneeded.
How awful is this?
Do I hate those who do this? No. I don't hate them. I speak truth. Even to them.
I show as much love to them, as I possibly can. And, I pray... for them and everyone they work to condemn to hell.
Until next time...
