Hello folks, I hope and pray that all are well.
I recently received a rather long comment on a post that I made late yesterday evening: “Islam Growing in Strength and Numbers”.
This gentleman is from an Islamic school in London, England. He has written me many long emails of this nature. I have posted his comment here along with my response to him. The reason that I am posting this is to get your viewpoint on the matter. He seems to think that I am misguided and misinformed about Islam.
He feels that there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world and that the religion is peaceful and loving; that it is only the minority killing, torturing, hating, imprisoning, etc.
I would appreciate comments, however, please keep them civil (I’m sure you will). 🙂

Islam is on the rise. Muslims continue their murderous rampage around the globe without anyone to stop them. Or should I say without anyone “willing” to stop them.
I wonder if Christians around the world were committing the same violent acts against Muslims, if the world would stay quiet?
Islam is growing in strength and numbers day by day, bit by bit. That is how it is done. A little at a time. Just like how here in America, the government is taking away our freedoms, bit by bit, one day at a time. They both do things in a similar manner. Nothing is accomplished in huge chunks, but in small bits and pieces. Like when you are saving to purchase a large item or save for your retirement. You don’t save it all at once, you put away small amounts, day by day, one bit at a time until you have achieved your goal.
Isn’t that how Adolf Hitler started out, bit by bit, piece by piece?
Commentary By: Gordon King
Who is God (Jesus Christ)? What is he like? Is he a God of peace, love and mercy? Or is he a God of evil, hatred and unforgiveness? How do we know what God is really like?
Well, I will give you a clue. He shows us what he is like in his words to us. In the Holy Bible. In his actions and in his love for us. God forgives us of all of our sins. He is merciful. God loves us unconditionally, even when we sin. He is always with us, at all times, as long as we accept him into our lives. He is righteous. He has given us a free will to accept him or not. God does no wrong. He loves us so much that he forgives us even though we do not deserve it. He sent his Son into the world as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. Before the world accepted him. How much more can he love us?
Commentary By: Gordon King
Islam, the Muslims, state that they are a religion of peace. I don’t see it.
On the contrary, I see a religion based on hatred, violence, evil, destruction, torture, imprisonment, submission, murder, death, and blasphemy.
I for one, believe what the Muslim Islamists are telling us. That they wish to destroy us and see us dead. That the murder and destruction of all that is not worshiping “Allah” is their main objective in life. “A life” to take away “life”. To murder, kill, maim and torture in the sake of god.
How funny is that (in an ironic sense of course)? Killing, murdering, torturing, maiming, disfiguring, imprisoning other human lives in the name of “god”. What kind of god is this that teaches it’s followers to hate, murder, lie, cheat and destroy? The only god that I know of like that is called “Satan”, “Lucifer”, “Baal” and “Allah”.
Hmmm……think about this for a moment. In other words, Allah is in company with Satan. He has all of the same goals and desires that Satan does.
Lets take a look at the comparison between “Satan” and “Allah”:
Satan is about hate, Allah teaches hate, Satan kills, Allah teaches to kill, Satan tortures, Allah teaches to torture, Satan is about destruction, Allah teaches to cause destruction, Satan hates peace, Allah teaches against peace, Satan hates love, Allah teaches to love only extreme Muslims, Satan forces his will, Allah teaches to force his will, Satan is dark, Allah teaches darkness, Satan shows blasphemy against “Jesus Christ”, Allah teaches blasphemy against Jesus Christ. Allah teaches to have sex with small children, to marry small children, to treat women as a lower species. Allah is not the giver of life, but just the opposite, the taker of life. He is a liar. He is not holy, but teaches followers to kill people, become a martyr and receive 72 virgins to have unlimited sex in heaven. How is that holy?
Now lets take a look at Jesus:
Jesus teaches to love, forgive, be kind, to help others, turn the other cheek, not sin, not commit adultery, not steal, not lie, not murder, not hate, not covet neighbor’s property, not blasphemy God. Jesus is light, giver of life, salvation, redemption, truth, righteousness, holiness, perfection, creator of all. Jesus is clean and pure, unblemished.
Compare the two “Allah” to “Jesus” and you will see that they are completely opposite from one another. One is dark and evil, while the other is light and good. It does not take a brain surgeon to figure this one out.
May God Bless you!

Please read this article and tell me that Islam is a religion of peace. I hear it all the time that Islam is a peaceful religion. How in the world can anyone say that they are peaceful when they are commanded in the “Quran” and the “Hadith” to murder in the name of Allah?
Islamists gunned down five people in a roadside ambush near Nigeria’s central city of Jos, only killing them after they declared their Christian faith, church representatives said Monday.
Pam Gyang, 33, Felix John, 32, as well as Jimmy Tiger, 28, Ishaku Gyang, 40, and Dachung Monday, 20, were all members of a Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) congregation in the nearby town of Foron, BosNewsLife reported.
Islamists reportedly forced the victims out of a minibus and ordered them to lie on the ground before shooting them on Aug. 29.

You say that you don’t believe in God? That there is no such thing as God. That God is just make believe.
I have a question for you. What in the world is going on? What do I mean by that you ask?
Are you alive? Or are you a zombie? Open the news papers, watch the news. Look at what is going on around you in the world.
Devastating vehicle accidents. We have had numerous train accidents in the past six months to one year. Not only trains, but buses, airplanes, cars, hot air balloons, cable cars. These are not common occurrences in either numbers or severity.
Meteor showers. We all have seen the very strange and unusual meteors hitting the earth over the past year. Unheard of. Never in my life have I experience such an event.
Solar flares. Not just solar flares, but, massive, gigantic flares, which just keep happening.
Dead animals. Thousands upon thousands of dead animals in bunches. Dead fish by the millions, thousands of dead, sheep, goats, pigs, birds, whales, dolphins, bees, just to name a few.
Earthquakes around the globe. Sure we have had earthquakes for as long as I can remember, but, not with such devastating effects. The death toll continues to rise almost daily.
Tornadoes in mass. We have had extreme loss of life and property over the past year from deadly tornadoes. Much worse in severity and numbers then in the past.
Heat wave. Record breaking heat temperatures around the globe causing death, drought and famine.
Innumerable hail storms throughout the world. These have not been your average “run of the mill” hail storms. These storms are causing massive damage, with hail stones being reported as large as grape fruit.
Wild fires. Once again, we have had countless number of fires this year causing death and destruction for anything in its path. Much worse then in years gone by.
Zombie attacks. Wild, naked humans, full of rage attacking innocent civilians and eating them alive. Eating animals alive. Explain this one.
Be-headings. Increase in Islamic terror attacks on people who do not believe in Allah. Increased persecution of Christians around the globe. Imprisonment, torture and murder of innocent Christians by radical Muslims, all in the name of Allah.
Blood red water. Numerous lakes, rivers, streams and even oceans turning blood-red. Reports of blood-red rainfall as well.
Strange noises. Unusual, unexplainable noises coming from the sky. Loud humming noises, noises of trumpets, with no explanation.
Societal meltdown. Riots, protests and uprising around the world. Overthrow of government. This is not an isolated incident. The violence is not declining, on the contrary, it is escalating.
Global economic depression. World banks and governments bankrupt. Stealing money from depositors accounts without their approval. Governments unable to meet the needs of the people or communities. This is also happening state and city-wide.
Famine. Millions if not Billions of people are starving each and everyday.
Disease. Strange new diseases are popping up month by month. Not only new diseases, but diseases that were once put to rest, as well as diseases that are becoming mutated and anti-biotic resistant.
War and rumor of war. Wars raging around the globe. Rumors of wars each and everyday. The Middle East has been a hot topic for decades, yet now it seems to be coming to a head. The tension in the Middle East is all focused upon Israel. World War 3 is at the door, even as you read this.
Peace agreement. America and the United Nations are working diligently to bring peace to the Middle East. They would like Israel to relinquish half of the city of Jerusalem to the Palestinians as part of the agreement.
Increased evil and violence. The evil and violence in our world is increasing at a rapid rate. Heinous murders, abuse and torture. Parents killing children, children killing parents. People being murdered and victimized for no other reason then they were in the wrong place at the right time.
There is so much happening in the world today, that I could not list it all.
So if you do not believe in God, then please tell me why all of this is happening now? Do you have an answer? I do.
Everything that I mentioned above is spoken of in the bible. It is all part of bible prophecy. Jesus told us to watch and be prepared. To be prepared for the time of the end. He gave us the signs to watch for. All of the above are part of the signs. It will get much, much worse.
I strongly urge you to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. If you wait too long it will be too late. For God will send a strong delusion upon those who do not believe in him. They will believe the lies of Satan, and not be able to accept God.
It’s not too late. Do it now. What do you have to lose? What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of God? God loves you and wants you to accept him. If you don’t then you should be afraid of him. For judgement upon the world is coming. The world will be judged much worse than what is happening today.
Don’t wait any longer. Accept Jesus now. He loves you dearly.

If you haven’t been following the battle between Bill O’Reilly and the rest of the right over the question of whether or not anti-same-sex marriage folks should stop thumping the Bible, you’re in for a treat. Will Saletan describes it here, but in sum, O’Reilly chastised anti-gay activists for advancing really poor “because I said God said so” arguments. Specifically, he said:
The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals: … ‘We’re Americans. We just want to be treated like everybody else.’ That’s a compelling argument. And to deny that, you’ve got to have a very strong argument on the other side. And the other side hasn’t been able to do anything but thump the Bible.
The ritualized outrage was predictable. Rush Limbaugh wailed and moaned. Other right wing talk thugs followed. Laura Inagraham tried to make the peace, and I’ll let Saletan describe that:
The sniping and smearing finally got to O’Reilly. Last night, he invited fellow talker Laura Ingraham onto his show to hash it out. “When you say you can’t cite the Bible,” she told him, “that’s disrespectful to people who really try to live their lives according to the Bible.” O’Reilly replied that it’s fine to live your life that way—you just can’t cite Scripture to settle policy disputes. Ingraham asked O’Reilly why he had used the word “thump.” He answered that he classifies people as Bible thumpers when “all they do is say, ‘I object to gay marriage because God objects to it.’ ”
Saletan explains to the right the problems with appealing to authority, but really, he needn’t bother. As much as they may squeal bloody murder about this, they know that O’Reilly is right. By and large, the opponents of gay rights have tried to keep their arguments secular. Canvassers supporting Prop 8 were specifically instructed to only trot out the “God said so” line after carefully trying to tease out the voter’s religious beliefs. They know people don’t like having a bunch of pissy Christians lecture them on how God sees marriage as a duty and not as something you do for yourself. They really did try to come up with secular arguments: That marriage is “for” procreation, that some ill-defined horrible thing would happen if same-sex marriage is legalized, and that same-sex marriage would somehow ruin it for straight people. All those arguments were swiftly dismantled by supporters of same-sex marriage.
“God said so” is what comes out of them when they’re under fire and they have no arguments left. It’s may be how they rationalize their bigotry to themselves, but they really do know better than to play that hand first in public. It’s a reaction born out of frustration, nothing more. So when O’Reilly attacks it, I imagine that they feel like he’s trying to take away the only thing they have left. Thus, the lashing out and freaking out at him for saying something they already know is true and already agree with.
Not that I have anything but warm feelings about this. It’s good to see conservatives turn on each other because they feel themselves losing the argument.
Commentary By Gordon King:
After hearing Mr. O’Reilly’s arguments against Christian views on Gay marriage, I just had to make some comments of my own. I used to like Bill O’Reilly before he started moving to the left. Over the years it seems that he has become more accepting and even agreeing with the liberal media.
I am outraged by his comments labeling Christians as “Bible Thumpers” with no argument but the Bible! This is such an injustice it infuriates me! Take for example the Muslims and their Islamic faith. They use the Koran to kill people in the name of Allah, persecute non-believers of Allah, use the Koran for all of their arguments including the defense for instituting “Sharia Law”! Where is the outcry against this!!! Why wont anyone stand up against them and shout STOP?! The Muslims are pretty much free to do whatever they wish in the name of Allah and the Koran. The world seems to accept this as written law and as a just argument. Most of the world is afraid to speak out against them. So they let it all happen. They even support them. Where is the outcry from our President and other world leaders? Why is he not speaking out against the heinous crimes and philosophies of this evil religion?
Yet, when moral, decent, peace loving, God loving and fearing Christians use the bible as their reference for moral issues they are denigrated and labeled as “Bible Thumpers”. Without an argument or viable reason to support their beliefs. I saw HOGWASH! All of the good, moral and ethical laws of our country are written directly from biblical scripture. In my opinion, this is another persecution of Christians and a stand against God Almighty. There will come a day when these people will bow down before Jesus and have to answer for their rebellion. Praise God!!!
