Commentary By: Gordon King
Suffering at the hands of those more than happy to take their lives, Christians around the world are being abused, tortured, and murdered at an astounding rate! Evil is taking a deadly toll in the name of religion, and its followers are deceived into believing that they are performing their god’s will in an effort to get them to heaven. I am speaking about Islam and its Muslim followers who unabashedly murder people who do not conform to their wicked ideologies.
The dictates of Islam demand that all those not following the teachings of the Quran be tortured, abused, and murdered, even its own followers who are not conforming to such laws. This is the god of the Quran, a god of death and destruction, a god without mercy or forgiveness, a god that demands the tireless killing of people not bowing down in submission to an ideology which is just as unforgiving!
Of course as Christians we know that there is only one true God, the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. All other god’s are false gods, or should I say the god of this world? Jesus Christ is God, the second in the trinity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is the One who saves, the One who restores, and the One who has mercy and forgiveness. He is a God of love and kindness, yet also a God of great wrath, and He is coming soon to destroy the darkness!
Satan, the god of this world takes the things of God Almighty and uses them for his own will, however, he doesn’t just take them the way that they are but rather twists them into the opposite of what they were originally meant to be. He is an imitator, an imposter, a counterfeit! It is written in scripture that there are those who will call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness.
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!“
If you believe that there are many Gods in this world and many ways to heaven, then that is fine as long as it’s the truth. However, if there is only one true God, and His name is Jesus Christ, then you have a problem! And this is where we are in the world, many people believing in other gods, believing that their way is the way or one of the ways. If what they believe is the truth, then fine, but if it’s a lie then they are deceived, which I believe with all of my heart that they are!
Satan has deceived the world into believing lies, into believing that there are many Gods, that there is more than one way to heaven. He has twisted the truth, calling evil good and good evil! He is the father of all lies, chaos, and confusion!
Satan has created many religions in order to confuse and deceive, to disrupt what God has ordained as holy and righteous, and to take as many souls as he can with him to hell!
We have one Creator, Jesus Christ, He is the only one true God of the universe!
You can believe whatever you choose, we all have a free will. However, just because you believe something does not make it true! The truth is the truth no matter what anyone believes or not. The rebellion against God Almighty continues on with a vengeance, and those in rebellion have chosen their fate, the consequence of their beliefs and actions.
Seeking the truth is not an easy task nor should it be taken lightly. We must discern right from wrong, good from evil. We must be willing to see and hear, we must be willing to have a change of mind and heart, only then can we begin to have true wisdom and knowledge, only then can we know the truth!
If you are not sure what is the truth, then pray to Jesus Christ for wisdom, insight and knowledge. Pray that He opens your eyes and softens your heart. Pray that He shows you the truth!
Jesus loves you! He is calling you to Himself, offering you a free gift of eternal life! What will you do?
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
