Islamic terrorism is not ‘contained’ , it is spreading and intensifying. Recent events are verifying the truth of this, so why do Americans have such a hard time understanding this? I want to suggest a radical answer – we in the West have forsaken the God of the Bible! As the prophet Jeremiah wrote about Israel, we too have “forsaken God the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.”
Americans have turned from the truth of Holy Scripture and purged God’s standards from public education and public life. We now have at least three or four generations who have been taught we are descended from monkeys instead of created by God Almighty. Is it so surprising that we can so easily defend women’s right to kill their young, or men and women’s rights to deny God’s natural order of marriage? A people who can prefer those politicians who promote the dismembering of infants in the womb over those who confess the Bible’s truths are ripe for delusion in all aspects of their culture. It is exactly what the Apostle Paul warned about.
“because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
Into this climate of unbelief Satan can introduce a false leader, such as Obama, who comes saying he is a Christian but denies it with all his words and actions, as the following video shows –
When the leader of a country so strongly lauds Islam, it is very unlikely that he will ever lead the country to protect itself from it, even when it is presented in it’s most radical form. When have you ever heard Obama speak of Jesus or Christianity in such glowing terms as he does Islam?
President Obama is accusing Congress and many Americans of denying American ideals because we do not want to allow Syrian Muslims to freely enter the country when his own administration admits it cannot adequately vet them. What he does not say is that his own administration recently denied refuge to other Syrian and Iraqi refugees and deported them back to Syria and Iraq because they were Christian! This is disingenuous and possibly treasonous.
Is Islam a religion of peace? A leading Imam in Great Britain says no. Listen to him explain what Islam is.
If America wants to be safe from radical Islam, they must do two things: (1) Return to the God of the Bible in humble repentance for our rebellion, and (2) Face the facts about radical Islam and elect leaders who will place Biblical Christianity above all other gods. It is no accident that the United States has produced freedom not found in most other countries. It is because our founders came seeking truth only revealed in the Bible. They believed the Scripture that declares –
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” – Galatians 5:1
