On Forced Conversion to Islam

image

There is no compulsion to convert to Islam according to our Koran,  Muslims say.

When knowledgeable Muslim apologists for Islam intentionally lie about it by saying it really is a peaceful religion, or arguing that Islamists are merely “a few radicals” whom distort no longer valid texts, or pulling them out of context, this kind of lying is commanded by the Koran.

One or more of Koran 2:173, 2:185, 3:28 4:29, 16:106, 22:78, 40:28, are the verses usually cited by Muslim Clerics, Mullahs and Islamic Law Jurisprudents to justify lying to infidels. Koran 3:28 is a key passage often cited as taqiyya’s “proof text”.

Muslim apologists deceitfully practise taqiyya until they have enough influence to force every Infidel (non-Muslim) to convert or be beheaded.

Beheading, crucifixion, and other horrendous forms of coercion to Islam is commanded in Koran 47:4. All Islamic holy books command forced conversion for all Infidels until Islam is supreme worldwide.

Apologists for Islam and many of our Muslim neighbours are taught to intentionally lie because Islamic jurists say the hateful violent verses of the Koran, like those above and in the graphic, abrogate (trump) Koran 2:256 …as noted in the title of the graphic!

Blessings and shalom!

On Dangerous Ideology

“Facts About The Most Dangerous Ideology On The Planet”

https://youtu.be/-LGzrYUGXdI

The Linked Video Above Is Powerful

Koran 8:39 Commanding Forced Conversion to Islam
Jihadists recruit children around the world to force the conversion of, or murder, Infidels as their Koran commands above. Indonesia is the largest Muslim majority state in the world.

Raymond Ibrahim is an Egyptian-born historian and expert on Islam. He also is the author of the chilling books “The al-Qaeda Reader” and “Crucified Again …Exposing Islam’s War Against Christians”. Both of these books document what Islam stands for, and has been, plus is, doing, around the world during the last 1,400 years.

Mr. Ibrahim now has developed, and is the featured instructor for, the latest Prager University course: “Radical Islam: The Most Dangerous Ideology.”

Learn why wariness about Islam, especially the extremes of it’s radical, political ideology,  Islamism, is NOT Islamophibia. This historian summarizes in the the above video also linked here on YouTube why the charge of Islamophobia is a fiction.

Be educated and understand why from the documented facts in the video how you will help other Infidels and Muslims by sharing these on your social media accounts.

Similarly to Surah 8:39 above, the Koran of supremacist Islam commands, in 100+ verses, the brutal crucifixion, immolation, mutilation and other forms of murder to force conversion of every non-Muslim, plus so-called apostates many of whom are simply peaceable, cultural Muslims.

Jihadis holding victims' heads
Apologists for Islam lie that its Koran and aHadith actions of Muhammad truthfully command jihadists to behead, burn, crucify, immolate, mutilate, and otherwise murder Infidels who will not convert, or extort and sex-enslave/traffic them.

But not all, so-called moderates disagree with their jihadist co-coreligionists. Many Western Muslims silently consent and engage in stealth jihad, plus most non-western street Muslims react violently to so-called affront as we can see regularly on TV news reports.

The passive terrorism of many of the 1.5 billion Muslims around the world is confirmed by numerous, third-party surveys over the last several years. (See the article including links to the surveys here.)

These independent surveys confirm the increasing radicalism of worldwide Muslims discussed in the above video by Mr. Ibrahim.

Taking Non-violent Action

Please write your federal politicians about the real dread for Infidel families of Koran-based, Islamic supremacism. Our political and other leaders need your input to overcome rampant political-correctness about Islam. Our politicians must take more and wiser action to protect us from jihadism as well as they can using a conventional war approach.

On love
Jesus loved all humanity so much He died and rose from His grave to set us free from the penalty for our many sins plus an abundant life in the dirty here and now as well as the hereafter!

However, if you are religious, including being a peace-seeking Muslim, please, remember that the only power stronger than “an idea whose time has come” is Almighty God. Therefore, please pray for all persecuted Christians, Jews, and Islamism’s, so-called Muslim apostates, as well as their jihadi persecutors, in every land around the world.

Because persecution is growing and spreading wherever violent Muslims have enough power to take advantage of Western multiculturalism and political correctness, ask your imam, minister, pastor, priest or rabbi to encourage, and lead their congregations in, regular prayer about this serious end-times catastrophe.

If you are a Catholic, write and invite Pope Francis —the one man in the world best placed and most expected to speak up for millions of persecuted Christians around the world— to lead the Curia to issue an encyclical. There is desperate need for Bishops to urge prayer about church and artifact destruction, rape of fe(males), sex-enslavement/trafficking, and other persecutions by Muslims of non-Muslims and apostates.

On Anxiety, Fear, & Worry

“Combating Your Anxiety, Fears & Worry

Another Patton Associates S-M-A-R-TBriefing

by: Gary F. Patton (gfp ’42™) [1]

Even at the ridiculously low estimate of jihadists being only 1% of the 1.3B Muslims on the planet, that's still 13M terrorists striving to make Islam supreme.
Even at the ridiculously low estimate of jihadists being only 1% of the 1.3B Muslims on the planet, that’s still 13M terrorists striving to make Islam supreme on the planet.

Have you noticed that in these unsettled times anxiety, fear and worry[2] are taking a greater and greater toll on your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual wellness?

What People Fear

Below is a short summary of only some of the things people fear. (Please note that I use F-E-A-R as an acronym. I’ll explain shortly how it effectively represents anxiety, fear and worry.)

  • being alone …especially in old age,
  • not having enough money,
  • losing a loved one,
  • failure,
  • never going full-out at something,
  • personal safety,
  • sickness
  • medical expenses,
  • not achieving my dream,
  • the unknown,
  • rejection,
  • job insecurity,
  • aging,
  • success,
  • losing my faith in God,
  • not being at choice,
  • being found out,
  • losing my children,
  • letting another down,
  • not being able to cope,
  • looking stupid,
  • being humiliated,
  • losing control,
  • being unlovable,
  • being abandoned,
  • never finding my life purpose,
  • thoughts of life as meaningless,
  • impotence,
  • dying alone and unloved and …
  • death!

Here is your opening S-M-A-R-TTip™

“Fear is situation specific, plus a product of immediate experience coupled with personal history.” ~ gfp ’42™

People talk about my fear, your fear, our fear …rather than fear itself.

Beware

God designed real fear to be our friend. Regrettably for many of us, anxiety, fear and worry are usually our worst enemy. It is often irrational and self-sustaining.

The "Vicious Voices" in our heads are planted by diabolical beings to trip us up and defeat us.
The “Vicious Voices” in our heads are planted by diabolical beings to trip us up and defeat us.

This truth is succinctly summarized in the acronym F-E-A-R: “False Evidence Appearing Real”. Seldom, except in threatening situations is the emotion of fear an accurate appraisal of what is actually happening. Unless it’s  summarily dealt with, F-E-A-R will default to the worst possible scenario.

Fear is usually your emotional mind’s answer to the question: “How bad can this issue really get?”

This is because our F-E-A-Rs are usually delivered by a voice in your head that speaks assertively and convincingly in the first person and sounds like our thoughts. But these are NOT our thoughts …at all! [3]

“Fear is conniving and malicious. It demands to be believed!” ~ gfp ’42™

The rationale for believing these negative voices is supported by much of the world’s message that is delivered to us in so many media and ways. And they powerfully grip and hold us prisoner like the chain around the back foot of a circus elephant keeps every huge bull a prisoner to his trainer’s whims.

The Only Way Out

I am reminded of a principle: the way one responds to the world shows how much faith s(he) has in God. An ancient Hebrew proverb offers sage advice when it comes to fear and F-E-A-R; It says:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and don’t lean on your own understanding. In everything you do, stay in intimate relationship with him and he’ll lead the lead for you!” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6, Patton Paraphrase

In my loose paraphrase, the proverb encourages us to:

“Conquer fear and F-E-A-R with F-E-A-R in God (“Face Everything And Recover, in God”).”  ~ gfp ’42™

The second stanza of the famous Christian hymn, “Amazing Grace” by John Newton (1725-1807), makes the point of my S-M-A-R-TTip™ …clearly:

“T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear.

“And Grace, my fears relieved.

“How precious did that Grace appear

“The hour I first believed.”

The emotion of fear performs as the gift God intended when it truly describes reality. It is an attention-getter, a warning to flee, fight or flow …not freeze. Therefore…

“Real fear is potentially life-saving. But, the way we often experience it, F-E-A-R is a foe to be challenged, immediately.” ~ gfp ’42™

A short piece called “Beyond The Edges” makes this point in a compelling way. It’s from an old book, the “Little Devotional Bible” (Honor books, PO Box 55388 Tulsa Oklahoma  74155):

“Centuries ago, when a map-maker would run out of the known world before he ran out of parchment, he would often sketch a dragon at the edge of the scroll.  This was intended to be a sign to the explorer that he was entering unknown territory at his own risk.

“Many explorers, however, did not perceive the dragon as a map maker warning sign, but as a prophecy. They foresaw disaster and doom beyond the known worlds they traversed. Their F-E-A-R kept them from pushing on to discover new lands and peoples. Other, more adventurous travelers, [like Cristoforo Colombo (1451-1506), the discoverer of the Americas,] saw the dragon as a sign of opportunity, the doorway to a new territory worth exploring.”

Each of us has a mental map or belief system containing the information we use for guidance as we explore each new day. Some call it a ‘worldview’. Others, a ‘paradigm’.

Like the maps of long ago, our mental maps have edges. Sometimes those edges are marked by the dragons that I call F-E-A-Rs.   Sometimes, our real fears are valid.  Other times, our F-E-A-Rs can keep us from discovering more of the world around us, or more about other people, including ourselves.

Please do not let F-E-A-R keep you from all that God desires for you to explore and to know!

Here is one of God’s many promises to those who trust in His guidance and will:

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)

F-E-A-R & Stress

F-E-A-R creates a great deal of dis-stress. Here are some stress mastery strategies that work for me:

  • Prayer – There are many different definitions of and approaches to prayer.

Regardless of how you define or practice it, the overriding principle underlying the notion of prayer is both simple and clear: surrender. Surrendering doesn’t mean giving up so much as yielding to a power greater than one’s own. Jesus said it in a few words: “I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me.  And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.”” (John 8:28-29) He also told his Heavenly Father: “Not my will but Yours be done.” (Luke 22:43)

  • Meditation – There also are  a great many approaches to this discipline.

But as the Christian Bible promises, the peace of God does pass all understanding. It will guard your heart and your mind. But, not by emptying it.[4] (Philippians 4:7) It brings a state of calm in which the tormenting tentacles of intellect and emotion are forced to release their awful, and powerful grip.

Prayer and/or meditation can be solitary acts, or a first step you take in a series of coping strategies such as those outlined below. But, the common practices of asking God for what you need, or practicing techniques to become calm, need to be extended. Both are important first steps in wrestling unnatural fear to the ground. But, beyond them is listening …for answers, for guidance. Those answers and that guidance generally come quietly and subtly in “a still, small voice”.

  • Face Your Fear – The conscious mind resists this effort. It conducts a kind of push-pull routine in which you worry about the situation, but avoid really looking at it in a determined way. It’s kind of like trying to see something off to the side without moving your head. Facing your F-E-A-R(s) means meeting it/them head-on and full-out.

By doing so, you can discover that the worst possible scenario is not the most likely and that there really are options. Or, sometimes you’ll find out that the solutions lie elsewhere than in analysis, logic, or fretting. I’ve used successfully for over 20 years what I call my “Worry Buster”. I sit and write in my own hand and, then, read back to myself[5]:

  1. What I’m really worrying about.
  2. It’s worse possible outcome.
  3. My resolve that I can and will deal with that if it really becomes necessary, and
  4. My commitment as to what constructive, positive action I’ll take, right away.

Huge bull elephants are imprisoned by a light chain around their ankles as full grown adults. The are tricked as babies into believing that they are held fast. You too can set yourself free from the lies that hold you fast by simply choosing to do so. As Bruno Mars sings: “Never Say You Can’t”!

  • Take Action – By this, I don’t mean taking a specific action designed to reduce or remove your F-E-A-R. I’m talking about doing something that will keep you focused on an unrelated activity.

Do anything that will deflect, distract and refocus you away from what is causing your F-E-A-R. (It’s the technique many parents use on a disturbed child.) And it works because…

“Adults are often just like little kids in grown up bodies!” ~ gfp ’42™

Some may garden. Others may talk to a loved one or a friend. Or sing in the shower at the top of their lungs. I go for a four mile walk and do it in no more than an hour. Norman Cousins overcame his fear and also caused his cancer to disappear by watching old comedy movies and laughing. It doesn’t matter much what you do, just do it with all your heart. The important thing here is “present focus”.

“The past is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. This moment is the gift of God. That’s why He calls it “the present”!”  ~ gfp ’42™

  • Daily Maintenance – Disciplines, routines, practices, whatever you want to call them, daily maintenance is a catch-all for a series of positive steps you can take to cope with the many F-E-A-Rs that demand to be recognized. Daily maintenance can include all of the above …and more that work for you.

The key is that you make a conscious decision to do certain things, repetitively, that you have found to be effective in keeping at bay, and combating, your F-E-A-Rs.

The Bottom Line

Inevitably, we will be confronted with things that are both fearful and completely beyond our control. It doesn’t matter how smart we are or how careful we are. F-E-A-R will come!  And, when it does, you have two tasks.

  1. Immediately agree to disagree with F-E-A-R as a statement of fact and instead see it as the lie it is …powerful, emotionally-charged, and always inaccurate. (Please remember the imprisoned bull elephant.)
  2. Most importantly, yield your own personal view and attempts to salvage the situation causing the F-E-A-R.

There’s a shorthand for what ‘yielding’ is all about. It’s ‘faith’. I’m not talking about blind, leap-into-the dark faith. But faith that represents a giving up of your own will, your own ideas as to how the situation is supposed to work out.

Faith, for me, is the willingness to admit that I don’t have the answers and that, with enough humility and trust in God, He will give them to me.

Mastery of dis-stress and F-E-A-R is an on-going process. It’s not something you do once and for all and, then, forget it. For life has a habit of bringing bigger and more difficult challenges. But “F-E-A-R Mastery” is the kind of thing that, the longer you postpone it, the tougher it is to do. And If I can help you in any way, please let me know.[6]

Please join me. Choose to risk! Increase your failure rate and grow! Trust God! And live life to the full …forever! As Bruno Mars also sings: “Today My Life Begins”!

On Islamic Barbarism

“Nun: The Root of IS Terrorism is Islam …Not Just a ‘Few’ Islamists”

“Another Patton Associates S-M-A-R-TBriefing™”

Below are the words of a Nun, Sister Hatune Dogan, who was brought to the U.S., in May, to testify about Islamic, horrendous barbarism towards Christians.

She denies the common lies of apologists for Islam, western media, and Pres. Obama and PM Cameron that “Islam is a religion of peace!” She makes clear that its a lie to say jihadist terrorists are “Only a few perverting the Muslim Qur’an!”.

According to Sister Hatune:

Jihadists holding heads of executed
Muslim jihadists obey the Koran and mimic Mohammed …as commanded by Allah, their deity

“What is going on there [Islamic State territories], what I was hearing, is the highest barbarism on earth in the history until today… The mission of Baghdadi, of ISIS, is to convert the world completely to the Islamic religion and bring them to Dar Al Salaam, as they call it.”

[The common Islamic term, Dar Al Salaam is Arabic. It is used by Muslim scholars to refer to countries where Islam is supreme, is exclusively practised, and Sharia Law reigns, i.e. Saudi Arabia (biggest Sunni sect of Islam)  and Iran (Shi’ite sect, the second biggest.]

The Nun continued:

“And Islam is not peace, please,. Whoever says ISIS has no connection to Islam or something like this, he’s a liar. ISIS is Islam; Islam is ISIS …

“We know that in Islam, there is no democracy. Islam and democracy are opposite, like black and white.

“And I hope America will understand. America today has the power that they can stop this disaster on the earth, with other Western countries.”

The Koran Backs-up The Nun

Sister Hatune is absolutely correct. According to Islamic law and history, savage and psychopathic behavior is permissible, especially in the context of jihad as commanded in the following in-context verses from Islam’s chief Holy Book:

Koran 5:33,
Koran 8:12,
Koran 9:5,
Koran 9:29 and
Koran 47:4.

All the above hateful, violent verses, plus the 100 or so like them, are eternal commands of Allah, the Muslim deity. All are commanded until Islam rules the world. This is what Koran 8:39 demands of every faithful Muslim.

Islamists are not just a few, and they are quoting and obeying the Koran correctly …as Islam’s Schools of Jurisprudence (Law) all dictate.

(Sister Hatune is quoted in an article by Egyption-born historian and expert on Islam,  Raymond Ibrahim, at https://goo.gl/fggwSW. The article there is entitled:U.S. State Dept. Bars Christians from Testifying About Their Persecution”.)

Taking Non-violent Action

Please write your federal politicians about the real dread for Infidel families of Koran-based, Islamic supremacism. Our political and other leaders need your input to overcome rampant political-correctness about Islam. Our politicians must take more and wiser action to protect us from jihadism as well as they can using a conventional war approach.

However, if you are religious, including being a peace-seeking Muslim, please, remember that the only power stronger than “an idea whose time has come” is Almighty God. Therefore, please pray for all persecuted Christians, Jews, and Islamism’s, so-called Muslim apostates, as well as their jihadi persecutors, in every land around the world.

Because persecution is growing and spreading wherever violent Muslims have enough power to take advantage of Western multiculturalism and political correctness, ask your minister, pastor, priest or rabbi to encourage, and lead their congregations in, regular prayer about this serious end-times catastrophe. If you are a Catholic, write and invite Pope Francis to lead the Curia to issue an encyclical about his seeming non-action on this issue. There is a desperate need the Pope to instruct his Bishops to urge corporate, congregational prayer about beheadings, crucifixions, church & artifact destruction, rape of fe(males), sex-enslavement, and other persecutions of non-Muslims by Muslims.

On Islamic Reformation

“Islamic Reformation’s Results …Antithetical To The Western Concept Of Reform”

Shifts Are Not Always Good
Shifts Are Not Always Good

In his helpful article here, Mr. Ibrahim, an Arabic-speaking, Egyptian-born historian, who is a committed Christian, outlines  why the “Islamic Reformation” which many are calling for is actually dangerous!

He explains why Islamic Reformation is already resulting in the exact opposite of the scriptural positives of the Protestant Reformation of Catholicism!

How Christian and Islamic Reformation can result in antithetical results flows from the fact that the two sets of scriptures are antithetical to one another  at the core. This is especially true in the areas of toleration of others,  supremacism, and violence.

The Islam practised by the majority of Muslims,  the so-called moderates, is NOT accurately rooted in, or derived from, the legally authoritative texts of Muhammad’s supremacist, violent Koran or his Sayings (Hadith). Prove this to yourself by reviewing even a small sampling of the Koran’s core passages:

Hamas Terrorist Jihadi
Hamas Terrorist Jihadi

Koran 5:33
Koran 8:12
Koran 9:5
Koran 9:29
Koran 47:4

As you will read above,  nonMuslims can be sure that most so-called, moderate Muslims are not daily practicing the reality of true Islam because most are not murders. Most moderate Muslims are not beheading, raping, and sex-enslaving Christians and others who do not convert to Islam.

Moderates are not daily involved in heinous, hateful activities although  violence towards nonMuslims is what Allah, the Islamic deity,  commands in each of the above, or similar of the Koran and Hadith. Heinous, hateful activities is true Islam if the Koran and Hadith are correctly followed.

However,  “passive terrorism”, in many forms, is practised by most moderate Muslims because of their silent consent. Silent consent to true Islam’s atrocious practises by so-called moderate Muslims results  because of the powerful cultural control exercised by the ”Five Pillars of Islam” which most Muslims do practise regularly, if not daily,  like 5 standard prayer times.

Moderate Muslims Not Peaceable
Even Moderate Muslims Not Peaceable

Moderately-practised Islam currently is undergoing severe challenge from religious Muslim purists. Reformation (return to the original)  is what al Qaeda, Boko Harem, IS,  and the many, many other fundamentalist, Koran-applying groups have been practusing since even before 9/11.

Please pray with me to our Living God, Jesus, that all our moderate Muslim neighbors will speak up and out against Islamic terrorism.  Pray also that they will demand a reinterpretation,  not a reformation, of all the hateful,  violent passages in their Koran.

Auschwitz Resurrected In Our Time

Another Patton Associates
S-M-A-R-TBriefing™

“Auschwitz Resurrected In Our Time”

The further I got into Joel C. Rosenberg’s “Auschwitz Escape”, the more Holy Spirit impressed upon me that we are currently living in a similar time of genocidal evil as did Europeans in the 1940s after being overrun by Hitler’s Nazis. Too many true Jesus Followers today are not praying enough support for persecuted Christians, nor taking appropriate action to resist radical, supremacist Islam, the hateful Koranic religion …not just the violent political ideology called Islamism. (Ephesians 6:10-12)

“True Islam” is the hatred, supremacism, and violence which is clearly stipulated in the Koran. The Islam which is currently interpreted as valid for all Muslims by every School of Islamic Law is exactly the same as the religion which the barbaric Islamic State (IS, prior ISIS & ISIL) puts into practise. You’ll discover the truth, not the lies of Western, politically-correct media, nor those of Islamist apologists, at the following links.

They’re on a major Website for the Koran where you’ll find the appalling verse content in context. These are only a few of 100+ verses like them in the current Koran that Muslims revere and have preached to them in Mosques around the world on Fridays:
Koran 5:33 @ http://quran.com/5/33
Koran 8:12 @ http://quran.com/8/12
Koran 9:5 @ http://quran.com/9/5,
Koran 9:29 @ http://quran.com/9/29
Koran 47:4 @ http://quran.com/47/4

True Islam is an all-encompassing lifestyle …not just a religion. In fact, true Islam is a Satanic copy of, and is exactly like, New Covenant, total commitment Jesus-following. The Koranic worldwide ‘Ummah’ is the Muslim equivalent of the Biblical “Body of Christ”.

Satan’s plan has always been that Allah’s Koran-commanded hatred, supremacism, and murderous violence towards all Infidels (non-Muslims) would overwhelm New Covenant-commanded love, inclusive exclusivism, and peaceableness towards everyone, even our enemies.

But, too many Jesus Followers and most name-only, cultural Christians are buying into media-spread, political-correctness about true Islam. Under the power of demonic denial, the obscenity of the extremes of both diversity- and multiculturalism-worship demand that even the most heinous practises of other cultures must be granted the same honour and respect as traditional Judeo-Christian ideals and values.

Society also allows Western, so-called “Hate Laws” to be manipulated by human rights bureaucrats to enforce the perverse worship of the Demonic Twins of cultural diversity and multiculturalism.

Blind multiculturalism commands rejection of the truth that Islamophobia is, and always has been, a legitimate fear and one that must be actively confronted and resisted non-violently, especially by true Jesus Followers.

Christians not resisting Hitler’s evil soon enough. And then solely with violence and war is exactly what happened in Germany, and then around the world, in the late 1930s and especially once the war started.

Denied truth then, like now, encouraged and supported genocide.

Just past halfway through Mr. Rosenberg’s book, its two main heroes have a secret conversation in an unguarded room in Auschwitz II. That conversation is a clarion, wakeup call to practical action by today’s Christians, as well.

One of the heroes is a young, French Jesus Follower named Luc. He’s awaiting the Nazi ovens because he empowered his whole town in southern France to rescue and help escape about five thousand, fleeing Jews. The other main hero is a young, German, cultural-only Jew named Jacob. He was in line to be murdered and cremated for successfully opposing the Nazi’s by working in the German underground resistance.

During their conversation, Jacob becomes frustrated at being unable to understand why Luc, married with two young children, had risked his life plus the lives of his family, and friends to save Jews he didn’t even know.

“Your question shouldn’t be ‘Why am I, a Christian, here in a death camp, condemned for trying to save Jews?”, Luc responds to Jacob. “The real question is ‘Why aren’t all the Christians here?'”

That statement pierced my heart like a bullet from a Nazi luger!

It’s a question that every Jesus follower should contemplate because Jesus commands that:  
“If anyone wants to follow me, he must deny himself, pick up his cross every day, and follow me continuously.” (Luke 9:23)

Scripture makes clear that Christians, who do not regularly speak up, and out, against the horrors of supremacist Islam are “passive terrorists” in the eyes of God. They are because of their deadly “silent consent”. Many of us take no practical action to counter the Muslim butchery of Infidels, especially those who use the name of Jesus, around the world …not just in Iraq, Syria, and Nigeria. (Proverbs 24:11-12 & Matthew 25:41-45)

Are we prayerless Christians any better than the ancient Hebrews God condemned and severly judged in Ezekiel’s time? (Ezekiel 5:7-8)

If we do not soon get our act together as Jesus commands in Matthew 28:18-20, He has clearly promised us what to expect. He says:
“Since you are lukewarm and neither hot nor cold, I am going to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich. I have become wealthy. I don’t need anything.’ Yet you don’t realize that you are miserable, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.” (Revelation 3:16)

In this light, faint-hearted Jesus Followers also are wise to contemplate the reality that Revelation 3:16-17 is the exact opposite of John 3:16 – 17 which many believe gives them absolute, eternal security? And what if this theology is wrong?

Read this book …PLEASE!
Then, take action?

Blessings in Jesus all …’till next we interact!

On Islamic Terrorism

“Is Islam’s Koran Terrorism-Promoting?”

Another Patton Associates
S-M-A-R-TBriefing

Have you become disturbed about the absence of truth-telling in much media reporting about Muslim massacres worldwide of Christians and others? Does it upset you that top political leaders state regularly that Islam is a “peaceful religion” …despite the considerable, glaring evidence to the contrary? Are the politically-correct, ‘Chrislam”-like comments of some Christian leaders getting you down, like me?

I am appalled by it all! And to my relief, there has been a recent “breath of fresh air” and truth-speaking from a top world leader whom is also Muslim.

A Potentially Planet-Rocking Speech

On January 1, 2015, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi made a epochal, potentially death-inviting speech. The potential world-shaking results of this speech, plus President Sisi’s earlier reaching-out to Egypt’s Coptic Christians as “equal Egyptians” to all others, is reminiscent of the reaching out to Israel of prior Egyptian President, Anwar Sadat, and his similarly reconciling words. The latter was assassinated by a fellow Muslim on October 6, 1981.

A Call To All Muslims Worldwide

President al-Sissi made his speech to the world’s Muslims at the largest Islamic University in the World, in Cairo, to a large gathering of Sunni Imams and scholars,  called the ‘Ulema’, (Arabic for ‘elders’ or “religious elite”).

In his speech to some of Islam’s assembled leaders, the President also challenged the Islamic ‘Umma’ to reinterpret its chief Holy Book, the Koran (Arabic: Qur’an). The Umma is the worldwide, supra-national Muslim community holding a common Islamic history and religion. (Four hundred years before the Koran, the Christian Bible first used the term “Body of Christ” to refer to all worldwide Christians.)

The Koran Requires Reinterpretation Says Sissi

In this speech, Pres. al-Sissi effectively called for a reform of the extremist hate and violence which the Koran contains in over 100 of its verses. A few samples, which you may read in context at the links to a major Muslim Website for the Qur’an, include these:

“Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger [Islam’s prophet, Mohammed] and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.” (Koran 5:33)

“I will cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, so strike [them] upon the necks [behead them] and strike from them [amputate] every fingertip.” (Koran 8:12)

“Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters [all nonMuslims] wherever you find them; seize them, besiege them, and make ready to ambush them.” (Koran 9:5)

“Fight those among the People of the Book [Christians and Jews] who do not believe in Allah nor the Last Day, who do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden, and who do not embrace the religion of truth [Islam], until they pay the jizya [Islamic State-like recent, usually annual and sometimes, usurious tribute] with willing submissiveness and feel themselves utterly subdued.” (Koran 9:29)

“So when you meet those who disbelieve [all non-Muslims and apostates], strike [their] necks [behead them] until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens. That [is the command]. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them [Himself], but [He ordered armed struggle] to test some of you by means of others. And those who are killed in the cause of Allah – never will He waste their deeds.” (Koran 47:4)

al-Sissi Condemns Core Muslim Teaching

To reinforce the need for reinterpretation/reform of the above-quoted-kind of Allah-commanded hatred and violence, President al-Sissi said:

“That thinking [thinking which is responsible for producing “anxiety, danger, killing and destruction” around the world, he earlier stated] …I am not saying ‘religion’ but ‘thinking’… that corpus of texts and ideas that we have sacralized over the centuries, to the point that departing from them has become almost impossible, is antagonizing the entire world. It’s antagonizing the entire world!”

Pres. al-Sissi, a pious Muslim, clearly seemed to be saying that the majority of the terrorism plaguing the world today is related to the holy texts of Islam themselves.

The Egyptian President tellingly invoked the classical Islamic and Quranic-based teaching, “the thinking”. According to Raymond Ibrahim, Arabic speaking, Egyptian-born, U.S. historian of Islam, “the thinking” is the core Islamic teaching which divides the world into two warring halves: the Muslim world (Arabic/Islamic parlance: Dar al-Islam) and the ‘Infidel’ or ‘Kafir’ world (Dar al Harb, the “abode of war”, of all non-Muslims on our planet).

To be in obedience to their major Holy Book, every Muslim must forever carry on a perpetual, “life or death struggle” with Dar al-Harb untill, in the Koran’s words, “all religion belongs to Allah” (Koran 8:39).

WOW!

As a true Muslim, unlike some Muslim dictators, Pres. al-Sissi, Raymond Ibrahim points out, “will not say that Islam, the “religion,” is responsible for “antagonizing the entire world”. But, he certainly goes much further than most Western leaders when he says that this “thinking” is rooted in an Islamic “corpus [body] of texts and ideas” which have become “sacralized [made Holy]””. (See Mr. Ibrahim’s article here.)

Pres. al-Sissi’s speech to the religious leaders of Egypt and the world puts to a lie the oft-repeated statements of U.S. President Obama, and U.K. Prime Minister Cameron. These are other political, and even some Christian, leaders insist that al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hezbollah, and the many other Muslim terrorist groups, not just the Islamic State (IS prior ISIS & ISIL), are unIslamic.

Even Pope Francis is saying there are limits on our freedom of expression regarding the above-quoted horrors of Islam as presently interpreted in the Koran.

President al-Sissi, however, a major Muslim political leader, said that “this umma [all world Muslims, collectively] is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost …and it is being lost by our own hands.”

al-Sissi Contradicts Every Islamic Apologist

In other words, Islamic terrorism and chaos is not a product of the things to which apologists of Islam in the West traditionally point. West apologists for Islam include Islamists themselves, plus our media and some liberal political, plus Christian, leaders.

The typically quoted excuses for Islamic terrorism are grievances over book-burnings, European/U.S. colonialism, Israel’s actions or mere existence, offensive cartoons, territorial disputes. These are the so-called Muslim grievances Islamic terrorism is normally blamed on.

Why Apologists for Islam Blame Terrorism On Everything But The Truth

And that apologetic narrative is intentionally designed to foster and promote dangerous dimensions of politically-correct multiculturalism by not “calling a spade a spade”, i.e., Islam is not peaceful. It’s actually dangerous …even for some who call themselves Muslims!

Pres. al-Sissi’s stated view is that Islamic terrorism is NOT rooted in Muslim grievances at all!

The President’s assertion is telling because it also totally contradicts the repeated apologists for Islam’s parallel narrative that Muslim terrorists are mere “criminals” and their terrorism is “crimes”, or their alternate version, Muslim terrorists are simply “deranged”, or “isolated” “individuals” and their terrorism is “Insanity”. (This is why many truth-disguising news media-publishers, politicians, plus Christian leaders don’t mention specific Islamic texts and cultural ideology. Koranic-commanded hate and violence, like the verse samples I link above,  according to Pres. al-Sissi, are the real and root drivers of Muslim terrorists and terrorism.)

We’ve Been At This Religious Crossroad Before

Christianity’s God, ‘Jehovah’, who is NOT Islam’s ‘Allah’, reinterpreted His Old Covenant, and totally replaced its seeming hatred and violence with His New Covenant about 30 A.D.  Then again, He reformed the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches’ religiosity using the Protestant Reformation starting in the 16th Century.

Like in Christianity, but without mentioning the fact directly, Egypt’s President is implying by his challenge that Islam too can be reinterpreted and reformed from it’s current brutal, medieval roots.

You can view a short video of the key parts of Pres. al-Sissi’s Jan. 1st speech, in context, here. You also can read his key text alone here. Finally,  you’ll discover an Egyptian newspaper report of President al-Sissi’s Christmas-season speech to Egypt’s Coptic Christians where he says, “You too are Egyptians speech!” here.

Please let me have your questions and comments below about what you’d add to, or disagree with, about the above.  Also, let me know how else I might be useful to you in any way?

Blessings all …’till next we connect!
