Was this the only time it happened? Well, I can't be sure, but I believe that it almost happened to me again. However this time, it would have been in person, and not through the internet.
To make matters worse, someone on Facebook (FB) contacted me the other day. This was NOT someone who was a FB friend of mine.
She doesn't live in North America, but she came across what I had posted here on LwL, about being fraudulently approached by a Muslim. This woman let me know the same thing had happened to her!
Thinking, and praying about the whole situation, I realized that this may not have just been something to cause terror for her, or for me.
After all, Christians are being persecuted by Muslims in various parts of the world today. So, what would stop Islam from wanting to attack her? Or, me?
Especially, since they believe they are God's children. Even though they are not.
Just as we read what Jesus said, in John 8:37-45, "I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not."
As we read, anyone who has God as their Father, loves Jesus.
This is the absolute truth. Just as we read in verse 42, above.
The evilness I have been writing about, isn't new in this world. Even if it has been new to me.
Some people think that it is only Muslims in the Middle East, are the problem. But, that isn't true.
We have people here, who are Islamic, who follow Muslim ways/teachings, to hurt others.
Just as they are taught, in Islam.
Just as that fellow approached me, in a hateful manner... trying to encourage me to do something, to be hurt. Or, at the very least, warn me that they won't tolerate me speaking truth.
Don't believe me? Click on this link: http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/06/04/calgary-business-analyst-seemed-like-a-regular-guy-before-he-became-a-suicide-bomber-in-iraq/.
Hopefully, you read that article posted by National Post. In case you couldn't open it, I'll copy/paste it below:
Iraq suicide bomber was once a Calgary business analyst who ‘seemed like a regular guy’
Those who knew Salman Ashrafi said they had lost all contact with him after the Pakistani-Canadian suddenly quit his job and moved away. And now they know why: He apparently died seven months ago after detonating a car bomb north of Baghdad.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria posted his photo online in March, calling him Abu Abdullah Al Khorasani, but a Calgary Muslim community leader said the man was Ashrafi, a privileged Pakistani-Canadian.
“He seemed like a regular guy and he was one of those guys that actually had a career, had a wife,” the man said.
I'm glad you can see that I am being honest. And, not hateful. Because, I am not. I'm speaking truth.
God's Word, the Bible, tells us that those who do not belong to Christ, are of the devil. Satan.
And, we are living in his evil world, that he has control over.
Hopefully, you can understand that by speaking truth to people, it will encourage them to find a solution to the problem we face here in the world, today. I believe the only permanent solution, is to gain salvation.
It is my prayer that if anyone who is not yet saved, will come to Christ, today. Tomorrow may be too late.
Until next time...
