Where’s the Grace? Qur’an vs Bible and Muhammad vs Jesus

Here’s a thought… Let’s throw grace out the window and treat Muslims precisely the same way they treat people of other religions, people they call “infidels” and “unbelievers.” Here are the verses they use to justify their horrific acts:
 
Qur’an 3:28- Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.
Qur’an 3:85- Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.
Qur’an 5:33- Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam.
Qur’an 8:12- Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.
Qur’an 8:60- Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels.
Qur’an 8:65- The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.
Qur’an 9:5- When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.
Qur’an 9:123- Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.
Qur’an 47:4- Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.
 
ON SECOND THOUGHT… Why would we operate as they do? If we did that, we would be no better than them!
 
Anyone who calls himself or herself a Christian should listen and heed to what Jesus said about it:
 
Matthew 5:38-48, New International Version (NIV)
 
Eye for Eye
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
 
Love for Enemies
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
 
NOW… Jesus’ comments were directed at his disciples, how they as individuals should respond to evil. Please bear in mind that Jesus himself qualified his statements with examples, such as someone slapping you on the check, taking your shirt, walking with another, giving to those who ask.
 
That’s a far cry from letter others harm, maim, violate, imprison, crucify or otherwise kill you, as the Qur’an clearly encourages its followers to do towards “infidels” and other non-believers.
 
There is a line, and the Qur’an clearly crosses it.  In those instances, we have ever right under both man’s laws and the laws of God to defend ourselves, including by use of deadly force, if necessary.
 
Similarly, however, if the Qur’an and Muslims who follow it cross that line, then it would foolish to think that we could cross that line without a self-defense justification and escape either the consequences of man’s or God’s laws.
 
Nay! Muslims who cross that line, even with all the faith in the world, are going to Hell. Why? Because they crossed the line? Not at all. They’re going to Hell because their faith is misplaced. They believe in the wrong thing. They think that they can work their way to heaven by works.
 

That’s not salvation. That’s Satan’s mind-job to get people spinning their mental wheels, wasting their time and money in ways that keep them busy and feeling good about themselves so they have reason to ignore the truth: No one is righteous, not even one, except for Jesus Christ.  While faith without deeds is indeed dead (James 2), wrongly-placed faith is also dead.  Furthermore, the kind of “deeds” mentioned in the Qur’an aren’t deeds at all, but rather, heinous if not mindless acts of violence extolled by a mad man and perpetrated on innocents by mad men.  It’s JUNK, and I can’t even call it junk “religion” because there’s absolutely nothing religious at all about raping, maiming, dismembering, beheading, and otherwise murdering other human beings.

Ephesians 2:

As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time,gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace,expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
In closing, I would like to remind you of one inescapable truth:
Exposing Hate Speech is NOT Hate Speech!

Mass Shootings and Random Acts of Violence

I’ve long been a strong advocate of an armed populace as the best means of self-defense. I also believe it is by far the best deterrent and way to stop both mass shootings and terrorist attacks involving firearms.
 
Back when I first became interested in the topic of mass shootings, however, there weren’t as many, and at least here in America. It was largely relegated to the occasional insane person run amok. Aside from 9/11, we did not yet have to worry Muslims conducting their own mass shootings in the name of terrorism.
 
Now we do, and it looks to get a whole lot worse before it ever gets better.
 
Society has several tools available to deter terrorism and mass shootings:
 
– Intelligence (costly, even when highly focused)
– – requirements
– – planning and direction
– – collection
– – processing and exploitation
– – analysis and production
– – dissemination
– Security (the physical deterrence and protection of people 
– – Law enforcement (federal, state, county, and local)
– – Personal protection (planning, training, and weapons)
 
So, should we make it more difficult for people to obtain guns?  Should we reduce magazine capacities?  Increase background checks?  Reduce calibers?  Limit ammunition capability?  Create more “gun-free” zones?  Mandate the use of “smart” guns?  Increase waiting periods?  Ban certain types of firearms based on their appearance or general level of public trepidation?  Put a cop on every street corner?
anti-gun desperation
No.  NONE of these measures has proven effective in either deterring or stopping mass shootings or random acts of violence, and most of them significantly increase the cost of obtaining a firearm to the average law-abiding citizen who seeks protection.
By far the most immediate and most effective deterrent against both mass shootings and random acts of violence, whether the result of insanity or terrorism, is a well-armed general populace comprised of law-abiding U.S. citizens who are both properly armed and well-trained.
 
The greatest threat to our security comes not from the lunatics and terrorists, but rather, from those second-guessers, the Monday-morning armchair quarterbacks who are NOT well-trained (if at all) yet who for whatever blitheringly idiotic reason feel like they’re *somehow* qualified to force their opinions down the throats of an otherwise free and well-trained general populace, usually in the form of ideas that sound good but either do nothing or actually do more harm than the harm they’re supposed to address.
mass shootingsThroughout history, a well-armed/trained populace has always been the most effective deterrent and counter to mass shootings and random acts of violence.

Where is Our Enemy?

Contrary to popular misconception, I do NOT hate all Muslims. In fact, I don’t hate ANY Muslims.
 
I DO, however, “hate that which is evil and cling to that which is good.” – Romans 12:9
 
This begs the question, “What is evil?”
 
As Justin Tolomeo, acting special agent in charge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Phoenix, said in a statement: “People who are plotting to death to Americaharm America and Americans are no longer a world away.” According to a variety of sources ranging from several within our federal government to various security think tanks, somewhere between 3% and 30% of Muslims currently in the United States would take innocent American lives given the right opportunity. Tens of thousands of Muslims were certainly observed cheering in the streets when Muslims attacked all Americans on September 11, 2001.
 
I’d call that evil, and encourage you to remember that such evil is already here in America, among us.
 
So what are we to do? Kill them all? If we did that, America would probably not survive the ensuing global backlash.
 
I would love to be able to differentiate between the good ones and the bad ones, but that’s just not possible. The problem involves taqiyya, the Islamic practice of deceiving your enemy. They’re apparently very good at it, having fooled the American government many times, including at the security checkpoints leading to those four fateful flights on September 11, 2001, eluding security at the Boston Marathon, attacking our recruiting centers, our hospitals, and many more.
 
When your enemy is inside your borders, and there’s no way to discern the difference between your enemy and a peaceful Muslim neighbor until it’s too late, what is an honest, law-abiding American citizen to do?
 
Remember, we didn’t start this war. Islam waged war against the rest of the world for 400 years before the Western world throughout Europe grew Jihad is their dutytired of the bloodshed and mounted a counter-offensive we know as the Crusades, kicking their butts back to the Middle East. It has only been in the last century, with a boldness and wealth resulting from oil, that they have resumed their global conquest.
 
So, again, what’s an honest, law-abiding American citizen to do?
 
Buy a firearm. Make sure it’s good, simple, and reliable. Get the best training possible. Know how to use it, when to use it, where to use it, and just as importantly, when not to use it. Train often, carry it with you whenever possible, and be ready at a moment’s notice.
 
Just remember this: Islam knows no bounds, and Muslims can be unbelievable cowards. They have often strapped bombs to their children, much like this smiling young girl, to do their dirty work for them.
American Muslim Girl
So good luck, God bless, and Carry On.

Sharia Law v. Constitutional Law – Who is Above the Law?

 

The recent poll says 51% of American Muslims think that Sharia law has precedent over the Constitution and that they should be able to establish Sharia courts throughout America.
 
The question asks whether Americans feel these Muslims should be deported from America.
 
97% of respondents say YES.
 
3% of respondents say NO.
 
Admittedly, the poll is posted on a website — Supreme Patriot — that is unlikely to see much bleeding heart libtard traffic. Even so, this isn’t an opinion piece. It’s a legal piece.
 
When our Founding Fathers penned, “Congress shall make no law respecting (giving preferential treatment to) an establishment of religion,” they MEANT it, and for damned good reason, including the one unfolding before us.
 
As for me, I don’t care what they think. I most certainly do care, however, what they do — their behavior.
 
1. If they’re an illegal immigrant, they’ve already broken the law. Deport them without question or hesitation and bar reentry. We already have laws on the books to effect this course of action. Follow the law.
 
2. If they’re here legally, but behave in a manner that violates the law, particularly the Constitutional rights of U.S. citizens, then they deserve the same punishment as anyone who infringes on another’s rights and freedoms, commensurate with the laws currently on the books concerning nuisance, harassment, misdemeanor, and felony behavior.
 
2a. If their legal status is on a visa, then either prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law, or deport them as required by the law.
 
2b. If their legal status is a U.S. citizen, then prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
 
The key word throughout is “law.” No one is above the law. Not Obama. Not Holder. Not Lynch. Not Kerry. Not an U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Not Muslims. Not Americans. Not legal immigrants. And certainly not illegal immigrants.
 
And by “law,” I am NOT referring to “sharia law.” I am referring to “the supreme Law of the Land.” Article VI, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution.
 
If Muslims can’t respect the Constitution of the United States of America, then they are in the WRONG country. They should get the HELL out of HERE.
 
Fair warning.

The Crusades and Islam – The Original War On Terrorism

After attempting to live peaceably alongside Muslims for a full 500 years, the people throughout Europe embarked on the Crusades crusadesto kick them out. The Crusades arose not because of Islam itself, but because of the grossly unacceptable behavior of its followers. Their behavior increasingly violated life, limb, and property, not to mention the basic human rights of the indigenous peoples of Europe and other lands.  Everyone should be free to practice their religion, but never beyond the point where such practice violates the rights of others.
The Crusades really were campaigns against terrorism.
The problem with the Qu’ran, Hadith, and other sources of the Islam faith is that it has ZERO respect for the rights of others. crusadesIslam strongly encourages the taxation (jizya), rape, torture, dismemberment and death of non-believers, especially when such murders are carried out by beheading the victims while they’re alive and very much aware of what’s happening.
Thus, in a roundabout way, the Crusades weren’t directly opposed to Islam itself, but to the gross and unacceptable horrors caused crusadesby those who practice Islam.  Muslims started taxing, raping, torturing, dismembering, and murdering non-believers and they just would not stop.  The problem with Islam is that deep down it really is that horrific.
The Crusades were extremely well-justified.
As C.S. Lewis once said, “It seems to me, therefore, than when the worst comes to the worst, if you cannot restrain a man by any method except by trying to kill him, then a Christian must do that” (C.S. Lewis, The Grand Miracle, Chapter 3, “Answers to Questions on Christianity, pp. 23-24).
Dozens of countries who remember the lessons of history have branded Islam for what it is: A culturally-based mental illness. It’s a systematic yet destructive way of thinking which brings death and destruction not only to those who oppose it, but between different factions of Islam, as well.
Wherever Islam is allowed to exist unchecked, humanity is NOT SAFE.

How I Voted in the 2014 Elections

“…a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King

The 2014 elections are by far the most important elections to date of this century.  Despite governmental reassurances to the contrary, America is tottering over the brink of economic collapse.  Vote wrong, and we most certainly will lose.  Vote right, and we might be able to haul her back from the edge.

As a registered Independent, I spent all afternoon Sunday reviewing not only the positions, but also the voting records of allMartin Luther King, Jr. 21 positions (42 candidates — half Republican, half Democrat) on my ballot. Given my “preaching” here on Facebook, I wanted to be absolutely certain I was electing the best candidate for each position, and not just “voting party line.”

I based my decisions mostly on their voting records. The criteria was simple: Had they supported and defended the Constitution,
voting records“the supreme Law of the Land,” as per their oaths of office? Or were they perverting our government by actions which undermined our Constitution and the rights and freedoms it recognizes and protects?

It was close in only 5 of the 21 open positions. The other 16 positions were slam-dunks.

In ALL cases, however, the records of the Republican candidates made it clear they stood for our rights and freedoms, while the records of the Democrat candidates made it clear they stood for bigger government at the EXPENSE of our rights and freedoms.

Sunday’s exercise was yet another of countless confirmations that the Democrat Party itself is no longer American, that it has been usurped by a mix of communists, fascists, socialists, muslims, opportunists and just plain idiots, to be used solely for the purpose of pulling the wool over the eyes of mostly lower to middle-class voters in order to remain in power, raise taxes, and siphon off a great deal of our hard-earned tax dollars into their own pockets and those of their friends.

To be fair, some Republicans are doing this, too, but I continually find they’re doing so to a far lesser extent.

Bottom line: I remain an Independent voter, yet cast all my votes towards the Republicans. My decisions were not based on the color of their party, but on the content of their character.

I’ll leave you with one last observation.  Five years of digging into what goes on behind the curtains in both parties have lead me to conclude what the Democrats say about the Republicans are largely lies, often made up on the spot, and that the elements in the following graphic are largely true:

Truth

 

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican, not a Democrat, and for many very good reasons which are even more sound today than they were back then.

No Law Respecting an Establishment of Religion

Islam takes yet ANOTHER stab at stealing the souls of our children:

“As the department’s first Muslim captain, he said, he feels he can inspire young Muslims to join the force and serve as an
ambassador for a faith that is often viewed negatively.”

Islam

This sounds so nice, doesn’t it? Until you realize Muslims are getting away with proselytizing our youth, when Christians
can no longer pray, witness, or otherwise share their face in the public schools.

So, this will be allowed for no other reason than the fact that its Islam?

Who else sees the heinous preferential treatment being given to Islam? “Congress shall make law respecting an establishment
of religion…” Translating the vernacular of that day into ours, this Bill of Rightsmeans, “Congress shall make no law giving preferential treatment of one religion over another.” The term “respecting” in that day meant “holding in high esteem.” An establishment of religion could have Quakerism, Methodist, etc. If Congress passed any law holding one denomination in high esteem, without doing the same to others, they would have been giving them preferential treatment.

Meanwhile, SCOTUS long ago held that the term “Congress” should be expanded in scope to include “any Office or public Trust
under the United States,” as given in Article VI’s “no religious test” for public office.”

Taken together, they mean one thing: You cannot either select or Constitutiondisqualify a person for “any Office or public Trust under the United States” on the basis of their religious beliefs, but NEITHER can they or their office be “respecting an establishment of religion.”

Neither the Boston Police Chief nor anyone in “any Office or public Trust under the United States” can legally “be an
ambassador for Islam” or any other religion or creed.

That is not merely “the law,” it is “the supreme Law of the Land.”

Violating it means he would be violating his oath of
office to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.” It means the
Boston Police Chief would be making himself a domestic enemy of the United States of America.

Boston police Captain Haseeb Hosein is violating the law. He is thumbing his nose at the Constitution while attempting to
indoctrinate (brainwash) our Children about Islam.DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN!

DO, however, recall that headlines in countries where Islam has exceeded certain levels usually read like this:

 

Muslims killing Muslims: Syrian Shia child who watchedIslam parents killed has her heart cut out

Woman stoned for refusing to have sex with her husbandIslam

Teenagers hung for being gay

Public school teachers Islamconduct field trip to Mosque where they force students to learn Muslim prayers while kneeling and bowing their heads to Allah

Women and children slaughtered “just because”Islam

Christians slaughtered for refusing to pay jizya

This greatest question is this: If Boston police Captain Haseeb Hosein is willing to toss the Constitution out the window

on something as important as our First Amendment, what will he do when it comes to our Second Amendment? How about the
Fourth Amendment? Any others? The Constitution itself?
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also
be dishonest with much.” – Jesus, in Luke 16:10.

IslamBoston police Captain Haseeb Hosein has NOT been honest, in either very little or much. He can NOT be trusted in either.

The question is, what Muslim can? The entire written foundation of their faith, the Qu’ran and the Hadith, dictate they MUST override all other religions and promote Islam above all others. Islam is NOT compatible with the very essence of the United States of America.

Islam is an ABOMINATION in the eyes of the one and only true God, and his name is NOT “allah.”
