In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I posted about someone I knew many years ago. Someone, who claims to be a loving Christian, but who never shows me any Christian love.
Is this important to me? Not really.
But, I believe it is important to God.
Please understand, I realize that we as humans, do not have to agree on everything in life. Or, issues that happen throughout the world.
Like thoughts and issues about Islam.
Here is a link to what this unloving Christian fellow sent me. It's an article published on National Post and is entitled, John Moore: On Sun News and social media, open season on Muslims: http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2014/11/14/john-moore-on-sun-news-and-social-media-open-season-on-muslims/.
Obviously, this fellow agrees with what John Moore wrote. I don't.
Why? The writer of this article claims that not everything being posted and/or discussed and shared with the general public, is true.
Well, I disagree.
A while ago, I met a woman who spoke at a church group. She was not the only woman I ever heard speak about the issue she discussed. Africa. And, how she had been abused, and how she saw some of her family murdered. By Muslims.
It seems that there are some people who wouldn't believe her. Like possibly, that fellow who messaged me with the link to the article I don't agree with.
Was this woman lying?
I've heard other women from Africa and indeed other countries, who have told the truth. And, are glad they are here in Canada, now. No longer living where they hope they would ever again, be attacked.
Here is a link to Wikipedia, who has information about a... List of Massacres in Nigeria: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_massacres_in_Nigeria.
If you read/looked over the list in that posting, hopefully you'll see that at the start of the list, there were not many attacks. However, today... there are many, many attacks.
In fact, many countries in Africa have been taken over by Muslims. By killing any infidels (unbelievers of Islam), especially Christians.
It breaks my heart thinking about the persecution our brothers and sisters are experiencing, even today.
Like those in Pakistan, Nigeria and other places where Christians have been killed. Even in USA, England, and Canada. Although we have not yet been overpowered by groups trying to kill many of us at one time.
What is the difference?
In those countries where they are considered to be 3rd world or similar, there is not enough governmental ability to ward off the killings, by Islamic men who enjoy murdering. Here in what some Muslims call the west, we have stronger governments. Governments who will stand up and fight against those who want to take over.
The question is... who will win?
While some may think this is a debatable issue, I do not think it is. We have already got the answer.
Where is it? The Bible.
There are many Bible verses about Satan. Satan... the devil... the father of this world, of all unbelievers in Christ. Not limited to, but including Muslims.
After all, as the Bible teaches, only once we come to Christ are we no longer a child of the devil.
However, until this happens, we are usually filled with sin. And, are of the devil.
Just as we read, in 1 John 3:8, "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil."
The devil sinneth from the beginning, just as we read, in this Bible verse. And, he that committeth sin is of the devil.
God doesn't lie to us. He told us truth... by inspiring the writing of the entire Bible. And, through His Word, the Bible, we can see what will even happen in the future.
God will win. And, so will we, who are His children.
How grateful I am that the purpose of the Son of God, was for Him to destroy the works of the devil!
Are you trusting in/believing upon the Lord, Jesus Christ? If so, you'll be saved. From sin and the devil.
Hopefully, you are.
If not, you'll suffer after you leave this world, for eternity. With no chance of ever changing your eternal suffering.
Until next time...
