STATING THE OBVIOUS [2]

Hello again folks! Without touching on the delicate subject matter of islamic teaching and its 'tolerance' of other religions and peoples; specifically Christianity and Jews; when you read these articles on the latest machinations in Gaza, one does consider a few inconsistencies:
If islam is truly the religion of peace; they why do its internal squabbles and doctrinal differences mostly end in bloodshed and violence? Doubtless the finger will be pointed at Christianity re: the Crusades; the Reformation; the troubles in Northern Ireland et al. Those campaigns were all about the religion of men because the Lord said that True brothers in the Lord exhort and love another and anyone who murders is not one of His anyway. Let us now consider some of the well-known outpourings of violence within islam:
  • Shi'ite vs. Sunni
  • Iran vs. Iraq war
  • Bomb attacks at shrine in Karbala; Iraq
  • Muslim vs. muslim atrocities in Afghanistan; Iraq
  • Hamas routing of Fatah in Gaza

To this writer; well aware of the things done under the banner of national religious fervour and papal mariolatry in the name of Christianity; no muslim can honestly believe that theirs is a religion of peace - either to us infidels or other muslims.

It just doesn't stand up under the spotlight. The difference between True Christianity and other religions is RELATIONSHIP [not routine religious rites] with the One Truiune God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Islam does teach conquest via jihad [by whatever means that involves] and not bona fide mission. Is is stating the obvious that islam is NOT a religion of peace?

The only real; genuine; shalom peace is the peace of the Lord - to be found only when in right standing with Him - and only an honest and contrite prayer away! Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... Keith JS ... 15-Aug-2009
