The western church and the atheist victory

There is a well used adage that all evil needs to triumph is that good men do nothing. But there is something even worse – when good men see evil for decade after decade and still do nothing.  Such is the state of the western Church.  In the NIV, Jeremiah 3, starting at verse 6, is headed ‘unfaithful Israel’.  Few Christians would see a parallel between the Israel God judged with invasion and captivity and the western Church over the last 50 years.  Israel and Judah actively aligned themselves with foreign powers, embracing their gods and their ways in the hope it would bring them peace, security and acceptability.  They ignored God’s prophets who warned them to hold to their covenant with their God and forsake their infatuation with foreign cultures.

The contemporary Church has been thoroughly unfaithful.  To garner acceptability it has ignored the significance of Galatians 6:12 and embraced the declining values of a failing western culture.  No good has come of it.  Its silence or complicity has aided the liberal and atheistic cause by failing to stand in its way.  Moral and spiritual cowardice has marked its way as the Church has done everything to remain acceptable to a post-Christian society and avoid persecution.  The so called emergent church movement is a stark example of fawning social sycophancy. If God were to send another Jeremiah or an Ezekiel to speak to today’s church, predicting what they would probably say is not difficult.  Here is the short list:

  • If you love your God, return to obedience to his commands:  Stop committing adultery and divorcing the wife of your youth. Honour your bodies as his temple.  Stop your promiscuity and reject homosexuality.
  • Judge situations on the basis of God’s commands.  Do not claim you are not to judge on matters on which God has already judged, providing you are not acting hypocritically (Matthew 7:1-5).
  • Stand against the teaching of evolution.  Believe in an old earth if you must, but do not forsake the fact that God committed six literal acts of creation. Defend God as creator and the first and only cause of the cosmos.
  • Do not remain silent any longer on the false god Allah and his false prophet. Tear down the pretentious arguments and practices ranged against the true God in the West by this satanic faith.
  • Stop supporting the politicians and political parties, that continue with laws and policies God hates, with your vote.
  • Publicly tell the people what is good and what is evil – to love God is to hate evil (Romans 12:9; Proverbs 8:13).
  • Stop preaching a gospel of relationship and centre it instead on repentance from sin and Jesus as Lord.
  • Leaders! Stop cloistering God’s people in your entertainment citadels.  Equip them properly to defend the faith(Jude 3) and proclaim the gospel of the kingdom.Send them out to be bold and courageous.
  • Publicly and relentlessly bring down the pretentious arguments ranged against God by prominent atheists and politicians.
  • Advocate changes in society that will glorify God. Demonstrate faith with good works (James 2:14, 17, 24)

The last word goes to Paul and his injunction to the Galatians in 6:7-8.  If the western Church is to win back lost ground it must stop trying to please the world and start pleasing God by standing up for him in all spheres, for it is in all spheres of western culture that God’s kingdom is under attack.

 

ISIS Paris attacks and political hypocrisy

The usual denial of the Islamic origins of jihad terror, has followed the Paris  and San Bernardino attacks.  The attacks are put down to Muslim extremism, when it is in fact Islamic orthodoxy. The jihad terrorists are no more extreme than the example set by their beloved prophet Mohammad and their venerated Allah.  They are simply doing what their religion tells them is their supreme and central purpose, to bring the world into submission to Allah – by any means.  Anyone who has looked into Islamic history will know it has always been spread and maintained by the sword, atrocity and by fear.

President Obama has led the gaggle of delusional western leaders in parroting the patently absurd claim that Islam is a religion of peace, when it is clear to everyone, not driven by the liberal multicultural agenda that it is not.

From a Christian perspective it is especially galling that President Obama will at every opportunity dredge up events from Christianity’s past to claim all religions have their extremists. He conveniently ignores the fact that where evil was done in the name of Christianity it happened in opposition to biblical instruction.  Islam, on the other hand can draw directly on its Koran and the example of its prophet to justify violent inhumanity. He also completely ignores the fact that Islam is drenched in the blood of those it slew over centuries in repeated Jihad-ist wars.  This sort of rank hypocrisy is reprehensible.

Western leaders have been busy denying and marginalising Christianity for decades, simply because it is opposed to their liberal, multicultural ideology.  When it comes to Islam they are willing to paper over the truth, deny their own claims to tolerance, reason and gender equality and ignore the very foundations of Islam.  More hypocrisy.  They have therefore become its apologists and are complicit in its Jihads.  The Bible tells us people like to say good is evil and evil is good.  There is no better example of this truth today than the defence of Islam by Obama, Merkel, Cameron and their fellow travelers in the EU and U.S. government.

ISIS is Islam

Here are two letters written by two Christians intent on informing politicians and the general public about the realities behind the Islamic threat. Their latter’s ignorance about Islam is truly astounding. A Princeton Islamic scholar, Bernard Haykel, has recently ‘come out’ by acknowledging the jihadists in ISIS and other Islamic terror groups are acting in accord with the teachings of the Koran and the example set by their prophet, Mohammad. This will be a revelation to many who listen to silly rhetoric claiming the terrorists are not properly following their religion. They are, it is just that most Muslims don’t want to go around killing people. They don’t really understand their faith, preferring to sideline the teachings that tell them Islam is all about bringing the whole world into submission to their Allah – by persuasion or violence. They can’t live up to the full demands of their faith because they just want to live peaceful lives. It does not take much to radicalise elements within the Islamic world because, being zealous for their faith and because they want assurance of salvation they turn easily to violence when incited to do so. This is not about cultural differences and the need to ‘understand each other’. This is spiritual. Islam is, at its heart, a vicious theocratic world view and has demonstrated its thirst for violence ever since its inception.
Here are the letters. A quick note concerning the context for each precedes them:

 

Letter One: Sent to New Zealand politicians in response to their concerns over sending a small training team to Iraq to help prepare Iraqi troops in their fight against ISIS.

I am writing to you and other MP’s to say some things that seem to have been left out of the debate on the Islamic issue. I’ve been into Muslim no go zones in the UK, faced off against Islamists in London and been into Islamic countries:

1. When NZ faced the Nazi threat, along with its allies, it saw not just an ‘existential threat’, but genuine evil. Now when confronted with the manifest evil in ISIS and the existential threat posed by the possible emergence of an new caliphate, along side a possibly nuclear armed Iran, we prevaricate over sending a mere training unit. All I’m seeing here is self-serving weakness. Australia already has 600 troops in Iraq while we huff and puff. I was opposed to US action in Iraq but the wolves have now been let loose – like it or not

2. The constant statements that Islam is a religion of peace and the jihadists are an extremist aberration is nonsense. This is what their prophet said to his followers; “I was ordered to fight all men until they say ‘There is no god but Allah.’” (Stark, 2009, God’s Battalions) Islam reveres its prophet who ordered over 60 violent jihads and led close to 30 of them personally. The so called extremists are only obeying their prophet and their ‘holy’ book. In the Koran there are 100+ calls to violence and jihad on an unrelenting basis until all are submitted to Allah.

3. Most of the ‘violent’ verses (e.g. in Surah 9) are in later surahs which under Muslim rules of exegesis abrogate earlier verses. So the ‘peaceful verses’ are abrogated. Thus the peaceful Muslims are in fact simply nominal Muslims. Their desire to live peaceful lives has nothing to do with Islam. What the violent Muslims are doing today is entirely in accord with Islam and consistent with the great swath of Islamic history from the 7th Century to 1683 when they were stopped at the gates of Vienna (not for the first time).

Its time you MPs grew a spine, woke up and spoke up. There is much more at stake here than your precious parliamentary careers. You need to put NZ, civilisation and humanity first.

Letter two: Sent to a prominent national New Zealand radio host ho went on to read it on air:

Congratulations on your interview re Islam…a rare ray of light among dark clouds of apparently intentional misinformation. ISIS conforms exactly to the central authorities of Islam: the Koran, the Hadiths, and the example of Mohammad himself as portrayed in Islamic literature. The Islamic understanding of these was locked in over a 1000 years ago and any deviation from this understanding is apostasy. ‘Reformers’ are killed.

Mohammad authorised lying – Taqiyya – to further the Islamic cause, thus the deceptive claims by Muslims that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’. By ‘peace’ is meant the final state they envisage when Islam controls the world. Until then there is bloody war with all opposition to Islam, following the example of Mohammad. Some peace. Western leaders who recite this mantra are water carriers for Islam.

Mohammad oversaw and personally participated in the beheading of 700-900 Jewish men in Medina on one day, who had surrendered to him in good faith…and dispersed their women as sex slaves to his followers. Thus the contemporary mass beheading of those who oppose Islam and the taking of captured women as sex slaves.

Mohammad married his favourite wife Aisha when she was 6 and consummated the marriage when she was 9 and he over 50. This is confirmed by several Hadiths attributed to Aisha herself. Thus the legitimisation of child marriage by Muslims. It must be legitimate because the Islamic ‘perfect man’ did this.

Such behaviour has gone on consistently for the 1400 years of Islamic history with an estimated 270,000,000 people dying as a result of Jihad during that time.

ISIS is the authentic historic face of orthodox Islam.
