GOING TO EXTREMES

Hello again folks! The word 'extremism' is always being flashed across our newspapers and television screens. It would be extreme for a pacifist to be a suicide bomber or a True Christian to blow up [murder] some believers in another religion at their meeting place. I would venture that it would be extreme for a Buddhist to fly an aeroplane into a building deliberately. Or for an animal activist to set fire to an active slaughterhouse. To me that would be extreme. But for a true muslim to carry out violent attacks in the name of allah; following literally texts from the koran or hadith in doing so; would not be extremist to me. Most westernized muslims do not do such things and are respectable and responsible members of society. They appear to be the extremists in islam to me.
A Christian who holds to the Bible is not a fundamentalist or an extremist - he/she is a Christian. How you label 'fundamentalist' or 'extremist' depends on your datum and what you are comparing against. If your norm is extremist; who knows what kind of 'fundamentalist' you are? It's worth considering isn't it as we hurtle toward the MoB and the UNity one world religion. I can see a day when True Christians who don't compromise are labelled as extremists or fundamentalists and they lose their head for it [read the Book of Revelation!] Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel! DO NOT BE DECEIVED!
God bless you and God bless Israel ... Keith JS ... 19-Sep-2009
