Pakistan?!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I will share something with you.

It's something that I feel everyone needs to know.  Even if they aren't a member of Facebook (FB).  Even though that is where I read the information I feel you need to know.

The picture with information was posted on FB by a group page called, British Freedom Of Speech News, who posted the article and pic entitled, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan  Will call upon the UN to outlaw Critisism of Islam in any formhttps://www.facebook.com/205697173609270/photos/a.205701653608822/255638135281840/?type=3&theater.

In case you couldn't click on the link and read the posting, I decided to share what was stated with you (I copied/pasted):

Pakistan’s recent elections didn’t just see hundreds of candidates backed by jihad terror groups and the rise of an anti-blasphemy party, now the newly elected Prime Minister of Pakistan has come out swinging in defense of Pakistan’s infamous blasphemy laws.
In his first address to the senate since being sworn in, Prime Minister Imran Khan vowed to take the matter [of blasphemy] to the United Nations, saying that few in the West understand the pain caused to Muslims by such activities.
Why is Khan taking the matter to the United Nations? Because:
Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker known for his fierce criticism of Islam, plans to hold a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest later this year. Physical depictions of the Prophet are forbidden in Islam.
Blasphemy laws are rooted in the Sharia, pushed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Now Pakistan, the country most known for its brutal blasphemy laws, has joined OIC efforts on an international scale to shut down freedom of expression that causes “pain” to Muslims.
This is a very critical point for Westerners to understand, since it is the root of “anti-Islamophobia” drives in the West. Islam must not be criticized because it is hurtful to Muslims. As Khan has stated, “few in the West understand the pain caused to Muslims by such activities” as planned by Wilders. But it doesn’t stop there. One must not scrutinize Islam, produce satirical depictions of Muhammad (as has been often done with Christ), or point out Islam’s human rights abuses, its intolerance, its relegation of women to an inferior status, FGM, honor killings, jihad violence and the call to wage bloody jihad in order to conquer non-Muslim states, and the like.
One must not even call out the hate being preached in mosques, or call for the monitoring of mosques due to their high incidence of hate preaching. It is all hurtful to Muslims; it is therefore “Islamophobic.”
“Pakistan condemns planned anti-Islam cartoon contest,” Indian Express, August 27, 2018:
Pakistan’s senate has passed a resolution condemning an anti-Islam cartoon contest planned by a far-right Dutch lawmaker, in one of the first actions taken by the assembly since last month’s elections.
In his first address to the senate since being sworn in, Prime Minister Imran Khan vowed to take the matter to the United Nations, saying that few in the West understand the pain caused to Muslims by such activities.
Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker known for his fierce criticism of Islam, plans to hold a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest later this year.
Physical depictions of the Prophet are forbidden in Islam……


Here's the pic that was with that posting:


To me, very amazing!  Why?

Well, it seems that Muslims speak a lot about Blasphemy Laws... as they have in Sharia Law.  Just as this article stated.

What is blasphemy?  Here's what I copied/pasted from Google:

blas·phe·my
ˈblasfəmē/
noun
  1. the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk.
    "he was detained on charges of blasphemy"
    synonyms:profanitysacrilege, irreligion, irreverence, taking the Lord's name in vain, swearingcurse, cursing, impietydesecration
    archaicexecration
    "the nuns would punish me at least three times a week for my blasphemy"

Sigh... 

Why is it that Muslims only feel that blasphemy is done towards them? 

It's also done, for Christianity.  Yet, many people don't care about that.

But, God cares.

Thinking about that, made me think of Revelation 13:6-8, " And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.".

Amen!   And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Please don't think that I do anything regarding blasphemy.  For I don't.  

I speak truth.  And, I worship Him, for my name is in the book of life of the Lamb.  Just as God wants me and each of you, to do and have done.

If you speak truth, and worship Him, then God will bless you.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
